In the state of Maryland you can no longer smoke in public places and this casino was smoked up like a chimney stack. Although they have a non-smoking section the smokers are rude enough to bring their puffs in that section. The eateries are decent too but I wish the non-smoking section had a bar in it so you don't... More

I visited the Sugar House with a friend to see a show in the Event Center. I thought a cold Friday night in February would be a perfect time. My first impression was there was a lot of cars in the lot but it wasn't even busy inside except the poker room. The concert venue was ok. The sound was... More

I was in town for one night going to a show near the casino so decided to check it out. This place is huge, and gorgeous from the outside. Inside, while there are some table games it is primarily slots - LOTS of slots! All denominations, the old kind, the new kind. I am a fan of 5 payline machines... More

Visited on 1/20 with my husband, we both play video poker, if you get 4 cards to a suite, you NEVER get the 5th to make a straight flush, stay away from these machines. The woman who greeted us at the entrance around noon was very friendly and answered my question with a smile, however I will not be back.

Sara Evans put on a great show, as usual. My one compaint would be that the folding chairs were too close together, virtuallly elbow to elbow.. I will be going to... More

Didn't even realize this 6 year old facility existed until I was on a country music artist's website with information she was performing there. We decided to travel about an hour and a half down from central NJ to take in the show and were pleasantly surprised with our entire experience. The Casino's location on the Delaware River between the... More

We going for the past three years on New Years evening to the Sugar house and I have to say it got better every year.
