This casino has one of the most friendliest staff in the state, however, friendly can't beat losing your money. The slots are the tightest that I have ever played. Table games are worst, but you do get a loud and animated crowd.

Everyone we encountered was very nice. The breakfast from stir cove backstage grill was a little pricey but was amazing. They have a pretty nice fitness center but no pool, hot tub, sauna. The bed was very uncomfortable and had tiny tiny pillows. We had...More

We arrived at the casino for a visit to gamble from Omaha, NE. Upon our arrival we noticed the grounds of the hotel/casino were not taken care of at all. It looked closed and deserted. The guard takin our IDs was very pleasant. The actual...More

Have stayed several times here, it's as good or better as Harrah's in Kansas City. Feel first class with out the cost with the free valet parking (remember to tip your valet, they will keep you car closer ready to go). Good variety of items...More

I have gone to Harrah's off and on for over 12 years. 90% of the time I have a negative experience. The dealers are rude, unfriendly, and generally unhelpful. There's other casinos in the area and even Ameristar is better than this place.

We went up to 360 restaurant for dinner. Had a great time and the food was good. They even brought 2 desserts for the birthday person.
