We came here for dinner prior to seeing Sinbad and found this to be mediocre in regards to the food. The servers are all very friendly and provide prompt service. The food here was mediocre and lacked flavor. This is also a small buffet with...More

We went for dinner around 8:00pm after a few hours of gambling. This upstairs restaurant continued the casino motif—dingy. While the hostess took us immediately to a table she was oblivious to the fact that the table had not been cleaned. As a result, we...More

Spent the evening with Paul enjoying a phenomenal singer who still has it after all these years. The sound was decent as we were about halfway back to the right. Plenty of room between rows. Emerald Queen does a decent job of putting on shows....More

All-you-can-eat seafood buffet for $25. How can you beat that? Alaskan king crab, snow crab, Dungeness crab, shrimps, fish... You will not be disappointed. Besides the seafood, the prime rib and desserts are great as well.

Emerald Queen have two casinos one in Fife and one in Tacoma. The only one that you can bring children to is the one in Fife.
