WA - The eagerly awaited completion of the Lucky
Eagle Casino's 16 million dollar renovation last month exceeded
even the most optimistic projections of casino management, the
Lucky Eagle announced July 9. "We thought we would have
a good turnout," said casino General Manager John Setterstrom,
"but we were a little surprised by the overall count. Of
course, we did have a very popular entertainer in the house
on June 15th, and a lot of people were able to discover our
new restaurant options right off the bat."
country singer Glen Campbell played to a capacity crowd on Saturday
June 15th, an act Setterstrom promises will be followed by other
nationally recognized entertainers. "We have a long track
record of bringing big names to southwest Washington,"
Setterstrom said. "Glen Campbell was so popular with our
guests, we already have plans to bring him back in February."
the Campbell concert were among the first to sample the fare
at the Lucky
Eagle's new restaurants, including The Prime Rib & Steak
House, Grand Buffet, the Center Stage Grill, and Sidewalk Deli.
"We really wanted to give our guests more dining options,"
Eagle chef Bruce Miller. "They now have very different
choices in terms of both menu items and ambiance. It makes repeat
visits a little more exciting."
Rib & Steak House offers incredible fare in a romantic,
intimate atmosphere. "We now have the premier steak house
in the area," Chef Miller said. "Our table-side prime
rib cart is the only one of its kind in Washington." Other
restaurant options are equally inventive. At 65 menu items,
the gracefully curving Grand Buffet is the largest in the northwest.
For those desiring more casual fare, the Center Stage Grill
& Cabaret offers gourmet burgers and salads during lunch
and dinner hours, and has free live entertainment on Friday
and Saturday nights. What's more, the Sidewalk Deli is always
open for guests seeking a quick sandwich or late night snack.
Eagle is all about options," Setterstrom said. "We're
also planning a new non-smoking gaming area and the addition
of 70 new slot machines. It's all part of our ongoing commitment
to exceed our guest's expectations."
Eagle Casino is located just off Highway 12 in Rochester,
Washington. Featured games include Slot Machines (largest variety
and highest payout rates in the northwest), Video Poker, Blackjack,
Craps, Roulette, Bingo and Keno.
