VERONA — After earning the top spot as New York’s best gaming resort by Casino Player Magazine in September, Turning Stone has received nine more “Best Of New York” awards from the same industry magazine, the most of all resorts in New York, the Nation announced today.

The awards include: Best Overall Dining; Best Overall Entertainment; Best View: TS Steakhouse; Best Romantic Restaurant: TS Steakhouse; Best Outdoor Dining: TS Steakhouse; Best Buffet: Season’s Harvest; Best Seafood: Season’s Harvest; Best Late Night Dining Emerald and Best Nightclub: LAVA Nightclub

The magazine’s annual Best of Dining & Nightlife award winners are selected by casino visitors themselves, evaluating gaming resorts in a number of categories.

“We have been deliberate in developing our restaurants and entertainment venues in a way that allows us to offer experiences to our guests that are truly unique,” said Ray Halbritter, Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO. “Before opening Turning Stone, many people said it would be impossible to create a world-class resort in Upstate New York, but as these awards show, we continue to prove the doubters wrong.”

Earlier this year, Forbes Travel Guide awarded the resort with three Four Star ratings and AAA bestowed three of its elite Four Diamond Awards, distinguishing Turning Stone as the only resort in the entire northeast to earn three of both prominent awards.
