    Went here this past Friday, which was 4 days after it opened. Here is my review:

    Parking: Used valet. Cost $5, but they were very quick to get your car.

    Casino: Felt kinda like a Planet Holywood combined with MGM Grand, to a smaller scale. Very nice in appearance. This was the first weekend night and every BJ table was $25 min. The dealers were awful. Constant miscounts and staring at the cards. One time a dealer even was touching the face of the cards counting out loud. Coloring up was a nightmare as they miscounted everytime. They had a very rehearsed, friendly attitude. I understand that alot of these dealers were new, but for all $25 tables you expect a little more.

    the CW's were just as bad. We ordered 2 beers right away and an hour later they still didnt come. They would walk by most of the tables, and wouldnt even turn around when you tried to get their attention. We went to a beer tub they had to get drinks.

    Food: We didnt eat there at all. There was a long line at every eating establishment. The buffet was $30. The Final Cut steakhouse menu was expensive. $36 for the cheapest entree. Steak were in the excess of $55. Way to expensive for Toledo, OH. I have found better prices at many Vegas strip famed resturants.

    Players card: Called Marquee. I am guessing you can get free valet, slot play and food as comps since they dont have a hotel. I think they will have a hard time getting table players like myself excited about earning "rewards."

    Crowd: It was very busy. It was what you would expect. Lots of people dressed nicely with alot of people in sweat pants. With the BJ min being $25, people were constantly buying in for $50 or less and lasting less that 5 hands. Within the 2 hours we were there we saw about 10 people with part of their buy-in being one dollar bills. they would basically replce on another at the open seats. that being said, my wie and I won $350.

    Overall: This has the potential to be a solid casino. If the dealers study in their free time, they add more CW's and lower the price of their steak house, I would love to go back.

    I agree the place was overpriced for this area , I didn't play any BJ but I watched my friend for a couple of hours . He won a little over 1000 but I think most of that was because of dealers mistakes, she kept hitting on 17 and busting, the place was packed and I think they will do well it is actually pretty small, I think I will continue going to Detroit with 3 casinos and windsor next door it is worth the trip

    I was there last month. The parking garage is simple to park in and get to the casino. It is modern and wide open with plenty of room. I was there midweek and it wasn't overly crowded. I think table minimums were $10 or $15. I didn't play tables as I prefer mostly video poker. The pay tables on VP are not good. My wife still won because she got numerous 4 OAKS and a royal flush. We played the slots very lightly and didn't hit anything great.

    Hate to hear that about video poker because that is what I play. My husband is a slots player.
