    Nice Casino with really good buffet dining experience. Also sports bar and snacks on upper level, live racing on Thursdays is a real winner too!  more »

    Really cool place! I was there with my brother and father for my first time on June 29, and I loved it. Really cool environment and what a rush when you place a bet and then cheer as you watch them run. The buffet was good quality, not a crazy amount of food choices (there was a lot of food choices but for some reason I anticipated much more food choices) but what was there was delicious. Even though it was a rainy night, I had a great time learning about it and experiencing it. I will definitely return with some friends. Do recommend.

    Great variety in entertainment, lovely restaurant, excellent parking. Really busy though so definitely try to plan it out so you're not going when it's bursting at the seams with people.

    Mother's Day. Very busy. Ladies at the front are horrid. The rest of the staff is awesome. Great selection. Fresh. Tasty. Not haute cuisine, so dont expect it. Treated children with patience and kindness. Clean washrooms. Excellent parking. Great views. Physically challenged friendly. Excellent Vegetarian options. A fantastic family experience.

    Just good to get out and put a $20 into slots and come back another day to do same. Meals are great.Need no one else to be with to argue over money when you go alone.Loveit. ( Hope....No one is hunted down like @ a factory I worked @ in Cornwall for giving a suggestion or review)

    Racetrack area was barren and filthy. Cafe was out of certain beers. Only 1st and 2nd is considered placing?? Also don't go here if you're young. You will have to be carded basically every time you want to gamble. And not in any intelligent or friendly manner.
