Save Yourself for one of Arizona's Better Casino's!!! Horrible Food & Beverage Service. Lack of Management! We even faced discriminatory issues, while visiting! Dirty appearance, nasty table staff in the Red Rock Buffet. Not all you could eat, was all you could stand in line for. I have been going to this casino since it opened it's doors. Not anymore. Couldn't get a call back from anybody, so I can't imagine any effort, or interest, in the way they handle day to day operations. Nasty, just nasty group of people. I agree getting worse every year. I won't go back, but will fill review sights, to warn others.
Years ago this might have been an ideal place to go but it is sliding quickly. This used to be a fun and exciting upbeat and friendly Casino and the gaming was particularly Fair and food was very good. I have to say my last visits have been left to be desired. The first off it smells really bad now just like a big ashtray it seems they cater more for the smoking and stick non-smokers any tiny corner of the building if they wish to play and not be bothered by smoke not my only complaint I tried the food again and his got so worse I only ordered pancakes and bacon and the bacon was burned and the pancakes I could not even cut with a knife just a chewy mess. And the color of the batter must have been gray because my pancakes were so dark was real disgusting. For the staff you find very few friendly workers anymore foodstaff cashiers are rude floor workers nonexistent I guess only if you win then they're right on you waiting for their hand out period but speaking of winning that doesn't happen very often you put a ton of money into this casino and get nothing back and I'm not just saying because of losses I look around and you don't see people winning anymore machines are tight I suppose. For example a machine I play here at the fort I could drop $700 and get nothing back yet I could go to same machine that competing casinos only spend $100 and get 300 return just funny how that seems yes since I've learned my lesson with this casino I will not return I feel it has gone downhill so badly in just this last year overall gaming staff and food is all crap and I do feel bad that I have to say this but this is my opinion. The other casinos have earned my business. I do hope that things change for this dying Casino
This place has a good mix of older reel shots and the latest video slots. Like most of the AZ tribal casinos they have penny slots but most have the 100 line one per line button as the min bet so they are really fancy dollar machines. Fort McDowell is better place than most of the Casino Az or Gila River casinos who really put the hurt on min bets. The food deals here remind me of Vegas and are far better deals than other casinos in the Phoenix area. The slot club isn't as good as it was a few years back but still you can get discounts from having their card at the food locations in the building. Cafe 87 is bar far the best food and deal here. The hotel has top notch rooms and during the summer has rates to beat the heat and we stay there a few times each summer.
Fort McDowell Casino is our favorite resorts in Arizona. The Radisson has specials available online for discounts so that everyone can afford to stay here. Players can relax, eat, play and more at the Fort anytime.
The Food is exceptionally good at the Fort, we enjoy the Discounts with our players club card, and the Promotions are the best! The Lucky 7 Saloon has great bands Fridays and Saturdays.
Great customer service throughout the Casino. We highly recommend Fort McDowell Casino.
