"We believe the new Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino will add to the overall energy and excitement taking shape in the Inner Harbor area," said Robert Mele, Chairman, Seneca Gaming Corporation. "Thanks to the efforts of many of our neighbors and our colleagues in the development community, people are rediscovering this section of downtown as one of the jewels of the Queen City. We are excited to redefine our presence in the area with our new casino property."
In addition to the 800 slots and 16 table games that will be a part of the new Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino, visitors will also be able to enjoy many of the local flavors for which Buffalo is famous. The menu of the American-style restaurant that will be located in the casino will feature such signature items as chicken wings from the Anchor Bar, Sahlen’s hot dogs, beef on weck from Charlie the Butcher and other local favorites made possible through partnerships with local restaurants. Many of the partner restaurateurs were on hand for this morning’s announcement.
"This continues the evolution of the spirit of partnership we have been with this project and in this neighborhood," said Seneca Nation President Robert Odawi Porter. "It’s more than just items on a restaurant menu. It’s everyone coming together to help reinvigorate a neighborhood and a city that is our home and helping to create a destination atmosphere in the Inner Harbor, which, in turn, will help bolster our economy through tourism, investment and job creation."
