Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino

wine(MARICOPA, Ariz. – July 12, 2018) – Earlier this month, Wine Spectator magazine announced that Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino’s Oak & Fork restaurant in Maricopa, Ariz. won the 2018 Award of Excellence.

According to Wine Spectator, the Award of Excellence recognizes restaurants whose wine lists feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. Ranging in size from 90 selections to several hundred, these lists are well-focused and tend to emphasize discovery.

“When we opened Oak & Fork earlier this year, we set a goal of achieving this important milestone from Wine Spectator,” said Nate Kinstlinger, beverage operations manager of Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino.   “And we couldn’t be more proud of our team for this recognition.”

“From the culinary team coming up with mouthwatering specials that keep repeat guests coming back for something new to our servers and bartenders making personalized pairing suggestions to our guests, the team’s dedication to creating memorable experiences for our guests is truly the reason why Oak & Fork has been granted with this honor,” he said.

Oak & Fork is one of the Casino’s newest food and beverage offerings and was opened as a part of the multi-million dollar expansion that includes additional guestrooms, ballroom, and spa and fitness Center.

Oak & Fork’s complete wine list can be viewed on the website. The restaurant is open from 4 - 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 4 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
