    It's worth a 20 minute drive, but not much more.

    It's crowded and smokey.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Depends what you like to play. If you wanna spend 20 more mins in the car, Grand Victoria is MUCH nicer, IMO. It's a shame Belterra is the least accessible, b/c it's by far the nicest of the 3.

    Argosy, IIRC, is still the only one of the three that still charges for admission.

    I don't think that Argosy charges admission anymore.

    They don't charge admission. But they are extremely tight. Not a real good enviroment either. Head to Belterra.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Belterra is easily the nicest. I saw the 2001 World Series game 6 at the bar there. People were betting on everything. It was pretty amusing.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    My parents prefer to stay at Belterra, but will eat at Grand Vic or Argosy before they get there. It gets very crowded (per my parents) on Friday nights at the buffet because of the families who only come for the food.
