The Garcia River Casino is a small, friendly stop on your way thru Point Arena. We have been to the casino, located less than 10 minutes off of Hwy 1, on probably 8 or 10 trips up or down the coast since they have opened. The casino is small, but has enough variety of slot machines, that we are always... More

We enjoyed this casino. The casino is clean and has a welcoming environment. We did not eat or drink at this casino.

We were surprised to find such a nice small casino and restaurant in an out of the way area. Pleasant atmosphere. Very good simple lunch of grilled cheese sandwich and fries. Short staffed and order wasn't right but they were happy to correct mistakes.

Live bands show up to play on Saturday nights and the cozy atmosphere makes it so fun. Staff was nice and the food was great. Not too crowded

When my hubby and I walked in, we were pleasantly surprised at how few people were in there. Also, very little smoke, which is a huge turn off for us. There is a little grill, but we didn't eat there. Everyone was pleasant and we even won a little money! The drive is very pretty and scenic. Well worth the... More

This is one of the poorest casinos we have seen. No smoke free area. The restaurant is like a fast food joint although the food was good,

I have visited the casino and restaurant many times over more than 3 years. The casino has modern games fairly run and the restaurant is a gem. The daily dinner specials and sandwiches are the best around and are fairly priced. And on the weekends a live band plays and the reasonably priced drinks flow from a full bar.

We spent at least seven minutes for the employee at the order window where food is served. She was on the phone taking an order and not even acknowledging our waiting to be served. When she finally got off the phone we tried to order the Saturday special dinner, we were told none . were available. There was only one... More

This was a nice surprise, Good food and lots of it! I got fish and chips and was not disappointed. My husband got the ribeye sandwich and said it, too, was awesome. The fries were very good. We went another time and again had good food. He got the ribeye sandwich again and it was delicious and I got the... More

We were there on Easter Sunday because it was the only place we could find that was open. Took over an hour to get our food (chicken salad, BLT, corn dog), place was smelly, smokey, and horribly under staffed. Happy that it was the only time we ever have to go there!
