We don't gamble a lot, but love food. We visit this place once in a while to celebrate birthdays. They also accept military discount (20%) off per I'd per meal....a great deal for the seafood buffet on Fridays and Saturdays. They also have singers and shows too. Some free.

We had a great time at the casino and really enjoyed the seafood buffet. They have a non smoking section that really makes it good for those who have breathing problems.

Being a non-smoker too, it IS genuinely nice to have the option to breathe in smoke-free casino air, huh? We’re thrilled that you enjoyed the smoke-free experience here at Nisqually Red Wind Casino, and in particular, the Seafood Spectacular in the Blue Camas Buffet.

Super smokey in here. After awhile you might get used to the smell but when you get home you will have to shower. I like their assortment of slot machines. I don't play table games so I'm not sure about that.
