New restaurants cater to poker players at Gun Lake Casino
By Bob Garcia
Poker players at Gun Lake Casino now have more places to go all in with their tastebuds, within spitting distance of the property’s large poker room.
The popular Michigan casino has taken the wraps off its restaurants and entertainment spaces, part of a $100 million expansion project designed to impress gamblers.
At the end of the summer, poker players will be able to enjoy dinner breaks at Shkodé Chophouse, 131 Sportsbar & Lounge and CBK.
“We are pleased to share the finer details of Gun Lake Casino’s latest expansion,” commented Sal Semola, president and chief operating officer of Gun Lake Casino. “At Gun Lake Casino, we aspire to deliver an unsurpassed entertainment experience in Michigan, and these new signature brands symbolize just that. Following the inspiration of our new executive chef Josef Huber, the future of Gun Lake Casino’s dining establishments will bring a completely new level of fun and entertainment to our guests.”
At Shkodé, players can look forward to flame-grilled steak, seafood, and a variety of other American cuisine, plus artisan-crafted cocktails and wine.
131 Sportsbar & Lounge offers a more casual setting, complete with live music, comedy, and sports entertainment on floor-to-ceiling LED video walls.
And CBK, which stands for Craft, Bar and Kitchen, will feature 100 kegs, including local craft beer.
Gun Lake Casino has an extensive poker room and is one of the most popular destinations for poker players in the Great Lakes State. However, due to COVID-19, the poker room remains closed to visitors. As more and more residents get vaccinated, there is some hope that the poker room could soon reopen.
