Its good for something that is close to all, good food, the music is nice. its get crowded. Its fun that the horses is there. Really didn't win much. first time broke even this time was a loss. they need to open up where the horses are on the weekends and fill it and serve food in there because it was so crowded the Italian place up stairs could not handle the intake of people they need new management.

Although recently purchased by MGM grand out of Las Vegas, this casino doesn’t even deserve one Star! It’s dirty inside, filled with unhappy customers and employees. It was much better before it got taken over.

If you really need to gamble while you are in New York, we suggest taking an hour and a half bus ride south to Atlantic City. At least there they have a few more casino choices and you will not be overrun with the worst elements of New York society.

Avoid at all possible cost!

I love going for their live salsa bands. The crowd is great and friendly. And if you want to eat they have plant to choose from.You can sit for a formal dinner you pick up some fast food.

All they do is cheat. The cards don’t move. The moment u bet high you lose. HOW CAN THE CARDS NOT MOVE. Where are the cards coming from. They cheat and I will be taking them to court. I lost everyday for the past months. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!! BACCARAT IS THE BIGGEST SCAM IN THIS CASINO. don’t worry run your camera system and watch all the bets lost the moment we bet big. Don’t worry my lawyer and I are coming for you cheaters!!!??

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

Visiting from Florida I must state that Empire City does have nice slots However, the lighting is poor Could have an Aroma 360 of a pleasant scent permeating throughout the entire casino being that it’s a smoke free place! The food is good and the idea of using the comp towards food is reasonable! Free play is fantastic! Great to hear the Latin rhythms and should have designed dance floor longer So wonderful to dance to the Cuban bands! I think Empire City should payoff more on the penny slots! Make me wiggle and dance on my chair while I enjoy some kind of BONUS-Free games! Would like to see more service on the floor eg. coffee,soda,complimentary small water plastic bottles.

If you are used to Vegas or AC and want that kind of experience this is probably not the place for you! What I love is that it’s a smoke free casino omg if you’ve even spent an hour or two in a regular casino you’ll know that cigar and cigarette smoke gets into every nook and cranny of your body like butter on a Thomases English Muffin. None of that here. I don’t think you come to Empire to win big it’s probably not going to happen. Just hope to break even or come out a little ahead. Go for a few hours of fun because it’s so close and you don’t have to drive 3 hours to NJ or CT. Staff is friendly and lots of security so no worries. No free alcohol drinks so it probably cuts down on the drama and riff raff.
