food was ok, the bartenders and waitresses were excellent, but of course not once during our stay did anyone take the time to clean off our tables, We spend over 7 hours in the bar

It's a very nice and large casino property. right on the river, it has some great views of Omaha. Lots of machines both old and new. And the ceiling is pretty high so it didn't seem as smoky as other local casinos.

I'm not a big gambler & definitely not a smoker, so this was a big turn off for me. Ameristar tries to mask the smell but it does no good. I believe there are better ways to spend your money. Just me.

You can also get rooms for $99 on Mondays. It's like everywhere else, cheaper early in the week.
