Caesars Entertainment’s first casino in Northern California, the $168 million Harrah’s Northern California is a joint venture between Caesars and the Buena Vista Rancheria Band of Me-Wuk Indians.

The property is located in Ione on Buena Vista Rancheria land in Amador County, approximately one mile south of Buena Vista, 28 miles northeast of Stockton and 32 miles southeast of Sacramento.

The 71,000 square foot property includes 950 state-of-the-art slots, 20 table games, one full-service restaurant and three fast-casual dining concepts.

Louie Oliver's Restaurant & Bar

Dining and entertainment
Harrah's offers "casual elegance" at Louie Oliver's Restaurant & Bar.  Go casual with beer-battered fish and chips or a pesto BLT, or choose pistachio-crusted rack of lamb or lobster tail.  The restaurant offers a full bar, occasional live entertainment and outdoor dining on a patio overlooking the Sierra Nevada mountains.

For a quick, convenient spot to grab a bite to eat, head to The Marketplace food court for a variety of food to satisfy every taste.  Choose from American, Asian and Mexican food favorites.  You also can get your caffeine fix at the coffee outlet.


The Marketplace

Seven Stars Lounge
A new Laurel Lounge is open from 2 to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 2 to 10 p.m. on Fridays, noon to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays. (Hours always are subject to change, so check first.) Hot food is served from 4 to 6 p.m.

Special Seven Stars benefits
There are no signs indicating priority service for Seven Stars or Diamond cardholders, nor any other special benefits at this time.

Should you choose this for your Annual Retreat?
Technically, it's not an option, though once it's been open a while, perhaps a host can arrange accommodations at a nearby hotel.

And, with such limited dining options, it might be difficult to spend your $500 folio credit.
