Awesome food, personal, prompt, and caring service, first class venue, and entertainment included, what a fantastic place, what a great time! We celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary at the Apex Casino in the Vee dining room in a private room that they call "The Vault", I'm not sure that words can do justice to the amazing time we had, you really need to experience it for yourself! There were eight of us for dinner, we were ushered into The Vault, where we found a large dining table formally set in black linen with red and white accents, correctly placed silverware and glassware (sadly a novelty these days), and centerpieces. Our meal options were chosen from a specially prepared personalized menu which had been printed for us and included a personal message and picture of us on it. The four course meal was absolutely delectable and included hot hors d'oeuvres followed by soup or salad, a selection of three from the menu, after which came your choice of entree, we had a choice of steak and prawns, salmon fillet in cream sauce, or chicken breast served with melted brie and cranberry wine sauce, and finally dessert, Red Velvet cheese cake, Chocolate Almond Torte, or deep dish apple pie a la monde. Despite a concerted effort, no one was able to finish all their food. I can't rave enough about the treatment received from the management and wait staff. It was like dining at a five star resort. Between the personal attention from Rameez, the dining room manager and the conscientious, prompt, and efficient service from our dedicated server, Roxanne who managed to always be available to refresh drinks, refill coffee, and attend to our wants without being perceived as hovering or intruding. In a word the service and the treatment we received was "Outstanding". The staff was so nice we almost felt like inviting them to sit and enjoy the dinner too! For our entertainment a Blackjack table was set up in the room, we were provided with "Play Money" and a professional dealer, from the casino's staff. Our play money was personalized with our name and a picture from our wedding day on it - such a nice touch. Our dealer, Terrance, was knowledgeable, entertaining, and amusing, He was especially patient and took the time to explain the nuances of the game to us non-gamblers. This event will go down in our family annals as possibly the best anniversary celebration ever, the bar has been raised! The casino and dining room staff made our experience very special and we certainly will be doing this again! We recommend the Apex Casino and Vee Dining Room, to anyone looking to host a smaller private dinner event, with awesome service, food, and some fun.
