I LOVE the food at Epic Buffet. Its always been fresh and tasty each and every time we have visited (which is often...5-6 times a year). The service has also always been exemplery. The waitresses that we have had in the past are friendly and prompt with refills and on clearing our plates. The entree selections are varied depending on when you visit. This Friday will be our first time having the crab legs/seafood buffet. Its our anniversary celebration dinner so, I hope everything will be as fresh as usual.
Hubby and I have both had great playbacks on the slots. My husband likes roulette and Let it Ride and if hes doing well, thats where he plays. If not, he joins me at the slots. Tiger Khan and Peacock Plenty are my two favorite slot machines. The variety of machines is good and if you want to win, then you must play the MAX. Im an all in-or-nothing kinda slot player, so I love the slots here. Closest to where we live. Will continue to visit Hollywood for years to come!
After reading all the negative comments I wasn't sure I wanted to go. I enjoy Mardi Gras and thought I would just keep going to that one. When I first arrived at Charles Town casino and walked inside, I thought it was an unusual layout. The first thing we did was grab us something to eat at the Epic Buffet. This place was really good! If you like a good buffet, I highly recommend this one. After that I got on a couple slots that I don't normally play and was down $39.20. I thought to myself maybe the slots are tight, but I was playing games I don't usually play and didn't have the full understanding or the comfort level of the game. A lot of the games I wanted to play were already taken. So I kept walking around and found a game I liked. I won $60 on this slot machine, before heading to bet on the horses in which I did better than expected. My friend made a nice profit on them and the track was nicer than what you would see on t.v. After the races, I headed over to play the big wheel and won a little on that. I can't rate the table games because they were all full and I couldn't get in on a game. My suggestion for playing table games are during the day or on a weekday. I finally finished on a slot and won $200.00, and my buddy won even more. Customer service was really good too, very helpful! I am not sure about the hotel because it isn't connected to the casino and is across the race track. You may be better off staying at the Holiday Inn. So I would say go here and don't pay attention to the negative comments. Most of the people that have something negative to say are the losers. If everyone won there wouldn't be a casino. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. They do allow smoking which was another reason I almost didn't go, but it is not bad at all. Have fun!
Visited this casino for the first time last week, and I was really impressed. Everyone posting all the bad reviews below either is a sore loser, or doesn't understand the concept of gambling at a casino. "Wahhhhh, I took my 20 dollars and they didn't let me play for 8 hours on their machines! I went with 50 bucks and didn't walk away a millionaire, what crooks! OMG they don't list all the winners on their website, they must be stealing from everyone!!!!" Gambling is fun. If you get that upset when you lose, you shouldn't be there in the first place, I'm sure the casino will survive even if they lose the whopping $25 you bring each trip!
The hotel was great, especially my room overlooking the race track. I don't bet on horses, but it was neat to watch them race from my room. The food was fantastic, especially the new Final Cut - try the bone-in ribeye, it was delicious! Wanted to try the pho at the buffet, but didn't get the chance. No free drinks, but prices for a beer were what I've come to expect at local casinos that charge for booze. Very nice selection of slots - some of my older favorites that I haven't seen in a few years, plus lots of newer bonus games. Tables were pretty crowded, but I found a nice spot at a blackjack game, and after playing for a few hours, the pit boss even gave the two of us dinner at the Skyline restaurant overlooking the track. The atmosphere was great too, it was crowded, but that made it feel exciting. The decor is top notch.
Overall, very impressed, and I plan to return here on my next visit through the area.
