WAYLAND, MI — A new restaurant, bar and lounge, high-limit table games room and more are among a host of interior renovations planned for Gun Lake Casino.

Construction on the improvements, which total $10 million, is expected to start this spring and be complete before the end of the year, according to a news release.

“We are excited to announce exciting renovations coming soon here at Gun Lake Casino,” Sal Semola, CEO of the casino, said in the release. “Continuing our commitment to enhancing the guest experience through innovation and excellence, this $10 million investment by the Gun Lake Tribe will bring a new noodle restaurant, a new center bar, and a new high-limit table games room.”

Gun Lake Casino opened in 2011 in Wayland along U.S. 131, halfway between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. It offers 2,300 slot machines, over 50 table games, a live poker room, as well as several restaurants and bars. The casino is owned by the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians.

The interior improvements set to begin this spring include a new restaurant, Lucky Dragon Noodle Bar, offering noodles and Asian cuisine. It also includes the construction of a new Crossroads Casino Bar and Lounge, as well as the new game room.

Some table games, slots and a grab & go venue will temporarily be relocated as part of the renovations.

The interior renovations join another major project underway at the casino.

A $300 million expansion, featuring a 252-room hotel, multiple indoor swimming pools, a full-service spa and new dining options, is scheduled to open in 2025.
