First off this is not your old Scioto Downs from yesteryear. This is now a slot gaming destination with free sodas and wonderful food. The buffet is a little price but can't beat the prime rib and crab legs on Fridays. The center bar has a live band that plays with no cover charge. Stick to the amour. Ushered for... More

On Saturday April 29 there was a computer glitch or something that shut down a section of the slot machines. Everything in that section went to hand pay meaning a staff had to physically deal with the customers on each machine when they wanted to leave and be paid out. The staff had no organization, poor direction, and were just... More

The atmosphere was fantastic and the staff was courteous. The slots were loose and I enjoyed viewing ANOTHER BIG WINNER; YOU MAY BE NEXT. It lets one know that the casino is paying off.

Great place for some casino fun! I am not much of a gambler but, had fun playing the slots. I was not impressed with Brew Brothers. My burnt ends were mostly cubes of fat and lukewarm. Garlic fries were great but also lukewarm. The prime rib sandwich had no flavor except for the au jus and it was extremely salty.... More

Went with family to Brew Brothers for dinner. Great food and atmosphere. Had their Toasty beer. For a 3% beer, very tasty. Hit the slots for a little while. Came out with more than went in with. That's always good. Very friendly staff. Will definitely go again.
