It is a very clean and nice place to spend an afternoon. The staff is friendly and if your lucky you might hit on a slot machine. I enjoy the bands that play every Friday and Saturday. I also like their drink specials.

Go quite often it's 8 minutes from my house. The casino is run down dirty do not give any promotions on weekends. We go because it's close to home and sometimes we do win. It has been bought out by MGM Hopefully it will improve
