Absolutely horrible - overworked waitresses - only 2 waitresses in the grill, no hostess, no bus boy and an assistant manager who spent her night on her cell phone. Food was terrible. People were actually walking out - can't blame them, when you only have 2 waitresses looking after the entire grill. I had heard that it was under new ownership - maybe they don't have the money to hire more staff, or at least an assistant manager who will actually help the waitresses by at least hostessing.Maybe they should hire a waitress as an assistant manager, at least she will have the common sense to pick up the slack. Never will go back and will definitely let people know what is obviously going on.

I am not from Edmonton but if I come back I definitely won't be returning to this casino. Everyone looks depressed, even the staff don't want to be there. The managers are out of touch, they walked through the casino not even acknowledging the staff or the customers.

It's really awkward and quiet, there is no music, no atmosphere, no people! I've never seen a casino with so few people in it! This place is going downhill fast.

There is an east indian man working in the poker room who has to be the rudest person I know working in an service industry type of job. But this doesn't really surprise me at all as many people working at Yellowhead Casino are quite rude (and extremely obese).
I don't recommend anyone go to this casino.

We visit this casino a couple times of year. it is always clean with a good selection of slot machines. We make a point of coming for dinner here too as the Prime Rib is always fantastic and reasonably priced.
They seem to attract somewhat of an older crowd but it makes for a nice outing irregardless of your age.

I like this casino, little more of the wow factor here. It's fairly big, I like this Casino better than the River Cree.
