Casinos & Entertainment


The Menominee Casino Resort, formerly known as the Menominee Casino-Bingo-Hotel, has recently added a 13,000 square foot Convention Center with a banquet hall large enough to host weddings and functions for up to 600 guests. The banquet hall can also be configured into separate rooms for smaller events and functions. Also located in the Convention Center are five large breakout rooms that can host meetings from 1-50 people. For small outdoor gatherings, use their stone terrace near the meeting rooms or the beautifully landscaped courtyard area right next to the pool and hotel.

Another option for a more casual fun atmosphere is a pool-side get-together at the cabana bar adjacent to their beautiful new indoor swimming pool featuring a large rock formation waterfall.

For gaming and real excitement, try your luck on one of the 850 Slot Machines, Blackjack or Let-it-Ride tables, Poker Games, Roulette, Big 6 Wheel, or Craps Table.
