The casino has been open for months but the staff still has not been trained. The Cube has no one to serve customers in a timely fashion. We sat for a half hour in the bar and not one waitress came to take our order. When food is ordered it takes an hour to arrive and is cold. No one is friendly and it seems they hate working there. Who ever is in charge should get their old job back at White Castle. Try any other casino and deal with workers who truly are happy that you are there. Rivers is a waste of time and money.
