  • Good fun, free parking and free admission and the horses races are fun to watch and bet some extra change on. The restaurant is upstairs and the menu is extremely expensive. Plus there is only a few tables where a family can sit as most of the floor is not accessible to minors.
  • Food in Terrace (buffet) is always good (make sure to make a reservation though), love eating & watching the races... even when it's busy the staff seem attentive & want to make your experience a good one... even the clubhouse bar has tasty food available
  • Lots of fun watching the horses and learning how to bet! Food was average, nothing special but not terrible either.
  • fun place to bet on horses, I went for the food, was good!
  • Lousy lighting. Place is being remodeled..albeit slowly. Still lots of fun though.
