We tried to go have lunch today at the Cellar, but it was closed. Did I miss something? This was at about 12:30 this afternoon. Thanks.

A couple of weeks ago, my husband's family and we were talking about good places to eat, and my father-in-law said that the Cellar was only a casino now. I thought that the one side was converted to casino, but the other side (Little Big Man Pizza/Cellar) were still open; my sister-in-law said no, that they're closed. I don't know how long ago that was or anything, and I don't know if anything was ever posted in the paper or anywhere else for that matter. It would have been nice if it would have been. . .

Rhonda stated that they were losing money on the restaurant side and decided she was going to close it. It's sad because they had really good pizza. Too bad they can't just sell the pizza's for take out.

To bad they didn't leave it the way it used to be, or get rid of the keno/poker machines, and leave it as a restraunt. Good food at a decent price I always thought.

Is the new Cellar Casino going to serve food?

My understanding from what I've read in the Star is that its just going to be a Little Big Man pizza place; not an actual restaurant. So I'm assuming you can just get pizza there to go or possibly eat in the casino.

Its sad that the restaurant in the old Cellar closed, pre-fire of course, and that by the sounds of it, it won't be revived in the new Cellar. I always thought they had great food for a reasonable price, and they were always busy.

Guess we'll see what the new Cellar winds up being...

Full service bar and casino. There is a kitchen, but that part is not up and running yet.

Hopefully the restaurant portion will open up eventually. I used to go there for the pizza, not to throw away my money.

How is it that Miles City supports so many freaking Casinos?

We need to make statistics a mandatory course at CCDHS.

My husband and my older brother invented a game called "Montana Express Poker." It consisted of a large barrel with a slot on the top. A sign said "Hold Open Wallet Over Slot. Shake. Thank You for Playing Montana Express Poker."

I think it could work.

Every time a new casino opens I wonder if one of the old ones will go out of business but it never seems to happen so I guess we haven't exceeded the demand yet. Funny thing is I don't know anyone that goes to them but obviously lots of people must. I have rarely if ever heard anything positive about them on this forum, doesn't anyone want to talk about how they are a good addition to Miles City?

They keep several buildings from being empty.

MT Express Poker has just as good odds as anything else around town I'm sure.

Hell, if the barrel said "proceeds benefit the ROCKS program" or something, I'd consider "playing."

And, I suppose that the "good" thing about the Casinos (not enough to override the eyesore that is Haynes Avenue) is that it separates some truckers from their money and leaves it in the community. So, no, they're really not all bad. But mostly. Bad.

I still plan to return to Miles City and open a strip club right there by the Blue Moon. If we're going to whore out Haynes to fit the needs of the OTR Truckers, lets do it up right. Strip club. Boom. Lets make it rain. A % of profits will go to benefit after school programs.
