I stopped at Sugarhouse for the first time after a meeting I recently had in the city. I have seen several promotional billboards and thought I would finally go check it out. The location is along the waterfront in Philadelphia and was very easy to find. There was a ton of parking, but I chose to valet my car as it was late and I’ve heard some negative things about the neighborhood.
The waterfront location of the casino itself provides a nice backdrop. There is an outdoor bar area if the weather is cooperating which looked like a cool place to hang out. I grabbed a drink at the back bar and received friendly and quick service. There was a DJ there playing some top 40 hits. The waitress service at the blackjack tables was also pretty attentive. I didn’t eat while I was there, but it didn’t look like there were several dining options like some other local casinos.
Overall, it was a fun place to visit if you are in the city and looking for a little excitement and gaming. I would go back the next time I’m in town.
