Still the best poker room in the Chicago area, big room, lots of action. The limit games usually get going early afternoon every day. Still love the buffet and cafe. There are plenty of free shuttles all over the chicago area with multiple stops.
The Hammond horseshoe is your best bet around chicago, Big poker room with plenty of cash and tourney action some full pay video poker and a pretty good buffet that's easy to get a comp for. There is no hotel, but who needs that?
My son is in the military and will be leaving to go to Germany, tomorrow. We decided to go and have a good time at the Horseshoe to celebrate. While there my son left his cell phone at a slot machine. He returned to the machine about 10 minutes later and the phone was gone. We went to security and explained the urgency of finding the phone. Security found the person with the cell phone within the hour and returned it to my son. What a great security team. I want to thank Joan and Thomas and those who assisted for a job well done.
Beautiful location on Lake Michigan. Buffet has good food and nice view of the harbor and Chicago in the distance. Deli was good too. Diamond Club is better than most. Table games and slots seem average. Sports bar is nice. Casino is large with a variety of tables and many slots. Cell phones work fine in the building - had been a problem in the past. Clean restrooms. Employees in general are very nice. Only down side is smoking is allowed everywhere. Stinky messy people have free reign. If the casino is crowded, you won't be breathing clean air. Wish they would ban smoking like Illinois did.
