  • Golden Gate Fields is a local landmark . Lot of people turn away just because of the gambling , And I definitely understand that. you just want to go somewhere with great views fun people and employees who go above and beyond to make your visit a good one. Some of the views can really be on postcards & breathtaking . Sundays are Dollar Days dollar parking, dollar admission, dollar hot dogs , dollar drinks including beers. I took my father-in-law doesn't gamble at all but loves horses & he said he's been living in San Francisco since 1967 drove by on Interstate 80 almost three hundred fifty thousand times.. and is kicking himself because he didn't realize how much fun in the Sun it was.
  • Place is grimy, but really that's what you expect, and to me it's what I want. On Sundays beer, hotdogs, admission, and parking is all a dollar. And if you expect more from that, you shouldn't. It's decently clean, there's always a place to sit, and horses are fun to watch no matter what.
  • This place is great. Super friendly staff and the racing is epic! Always look forward to my next trip.
  • MY girlfriend and I go at least twice a year. We enjoy getting dressed up and going to the Turf club where they have an all you can eat buffet most weekends. The view is beautiful and with the tv at your seat you can bet on the other race tracks around the country.
  • Exquisite views of the GGBridge & SF, lovely indoor outdoor experience, great people watching, excellent food, racing excitement & beautiful horses you can see close-up & even sometimes touch...
