Too bad.

Columbus is too much a "do it once" town. A lot of people go once, look to see what else there is to do in the area (nothing) and don't go back.

Glad it's on the West Side.

The criminal parasite class are gambling folks as well. Defenseless victims zones just might have defenseless victims with cash winnings. Or as we saw this weekend, a woman alone in the parking garage. Well, except a criminal was there with her, and he knew she would not be strapped.

Nice job Hollysh^t Casino. You'll never seed a penny of mine. And if anyone ever asks me of the place I'll tell them that it is on the sh^thole side of town.

Back in the day, Westland shopping center and the surrounding area was a great place to shop and hang out. When a couple of different deomgraphics starting taking over, I moved on.

Yep, I saw the new building going up about 3 weeks ago. They are probably building it to attract the other demographic in the area. Here's a funny note, went to see my doctor on Dublin road not long ago. I saw him leaving for lunch just as I was pulling out. He was driving a beautiful new Jag. Where did he go for lunch? Wendy's !

I am laughing.

We went once to the casino. In 3 hours we left, and have not returned. Had $50 each to lose. Wife took her $50 to gift store and spent it, I lost mine with 3 queens in poker.

Food was average at best, and entertainment was barely average.

I prefer to gamble my money on myself, and not a machine or dealer. I bet if I order a cajun ribeye and baked potato I eat it. As the crow flies, the best steak houses in Columbus are under a mile from my driveway.

Why would I drive to the westside?
Why risk car being broken into?
Why risk pickpocketing?

The casino location is just fine. Otherwise I agree with the other comments here. I wouldn't even call their food average. I thought it was pricey and didn't look so hot.

I didn't bother looking at the casino food. We have a favorite spot in Hilliard and have never been disappointed with either the food or service there.

Those have to be some of the toughest birds ever. Maybe they get sent to one of the chinese buffets in town.

Android will won't let me quote.

I think the location is fine and for what it is the casino is very attractive.

I could be wrong, but I wonder if the restaurants and the amenities are the problem. It could just be hype since I've never been there and don't really plan on going, but I get the impression that Horseshoe is a little more high-end than Hollywood. They seem to have better restaurants for one thing ...
