Beautiful 70 degree day in Feb!! Casino provides shuttle bus service from nearby hotels which we love! Went out & watched the horses run starting at 7pm. Race track is fun to watch and has plenty of spectator room (seats & standing area). Got a few snacks at the race track snack bar but the service was terrible. Some people... More

I was there for 3 days and 2 nights. Servers and staff were very attentive. Had plenty of space, machines and tables. It was never crowded the weekend I was there. They certainly need to improve their food courts. The restaurants there are very expensive for what you get. .

Nice staff. We were there in the afternoon playing slots and the cocktail waitresses were plenty. Returned that evening and they were scarce. I wanted to do some live horse bets but I never found my way. One thing I forgot, Smokey!

Good place to have fun but do not expect to win any thing its so tight. Good food but the cost is way to high the water down drinks are ok. I feel it is clean but bring your own wet wipes.

A wonderful place to taking visiting friends and family who like casinos and good food. My daughter won over $300 dollars within the first 30-minutes of visiting the casino she had just turned 21-years young. In addition, every time my Dad visits from out of state the first place him and his wife want to visit is the casino nd... More

It's hard to enjoy the casino because of the permitted smoking. Even in the non-smoking areas the placed smelled bad. We were able to eat overlooking the racetrack in a smoke free area. Overall very unpleasant.

Great for watching the ponies, the casino is old and smokey, place is filthy esp the restrooms. Drinks are watered down-that's why they are free. Save your money now that there is a decent casino in town.

Nearly everyone is smoking so we left. For smokers this might be a good option....even in the no smoking area the smell was overwhelming.

We had dinner on the Skyview Terrace, overlooking the race track. The races are depending on how much and how you wager. The food is pretty good; the buffet, to me, seems kind of beat. I ordered the onion soup and had the appetizer wings -- they are HUGE -- as a main. Both were really good. Our server, however,... More

As you walk in from the West parking garage you will immediately be smacked in the face with the stench of stale cigarette smoke. The facility is old but clean. There is supposedly a non smoking section I just never found any section that does not have the smokers stench. The staff has always been friendly and efficient. The dealers... More
