while conversing or playing one of the On The Bar video
poker games. Restaurants and shops are on the perimeter.
A well rounded selections of restaurants includes a Steakhouse
(Red's), and upscale Italian eatery (Le Sorelle), Betty's
American Diner, and one of the Best Buffets of any of the
over 50 Casinos this reviewer has visited. There are no
comparisons to "Racinos". The Mount Airy Resort
is a complete destination casino experience.
