FireKeepers Casino & Essenhaus
6.24.16 Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed the FireKeepers trip, I really think it is our favorite casino in the area. And I think I had the best chicken that I have ever had at the Essenhaus. The whole meal was terrific and the servers are always so accommodating, just wish I had more time to spend in the shopping area. Thanks again for another enjoyable trip. Pat & Bernie I.
We loaded our bus to the very max and headed to FireKeepers Casino, probably our most popular day trip.
Upon arrival at FireKeepers, a casino representative boarded the bus to explain the perks and the procedure in obtaining a players card for the "newbies".
Of course, being in a casino, you are not allowed to take pictures. I will snap a quick one with my phone if I have a nice hit, but as you can see, that didn't happen.
After spending 4 hours at FireKeepers, we headed to Das Dutchman Essenhaus for dinner. Being that it was on a Flea Market day, the restaurant was full and there was a lineup of buses parked in the parking lot. We were seated immediately upstairs, with our salads waiting. The food and service is superb! It is amazing with the number of people throughout the restaurant that they exceed one's expectations of food quality and service.
There was a little time for shopping in their gift shop and bakery before loading the bus to make our way home.
I did hear of someone coming home a nice winner and tried to pawn the bill for the meal off on them, but the husband didn't like that idea very well. Everyone went home happy with full tummies.
