  • Went early for a promotion and while waiting in line, there was a loud yelling fight from people behind me due to people cutting in line that went on for approx 30 mins. No security anywhere. Then 15 ...  read more »

  • As a young adult, I used to love coming to the race track during the summer and sitting in the Club. It was a fun evening with good food and you didn't even have to bet to enjoy the time. Now, the ent...  read more »
  • The food buffet for our catered event had lots of options, and they were all delicious! The horse racing was fun to watch. Placing bets required a little education, but was worth the effort. Having won two Exacta Box bets, I had a good night!
  • I came here midday for a lunch meeting. The restaurant portion was amazing. The only issue I had was the plate that my meal came out on did not fit my plate lol. Other than that the entire time from the bartender, to the lemonade and atmosphere was awesome. If not for it being a casino, definitely kid friendly as well.
  • My husband and I went to Eldorado on 6/24/16. We both had a very nice meal at the Brew Brothers, (the deep fried pickle spears and onion rings were very good). We were seated right away and our waitress was there almost immediately. This was even during a concert night, I was surprised there was no wait. Our hostess and waitress were very nice and friendly. Tasted several of the microbrews, some good, some eh...but hey, everyone has different tastes. We played the slots for over 4 hours and had a lot of fun, some wins, some loses. Came home with money in our pocket so that was a plus. We will be back!
  • Eldorado Scioto Downs is beautiful well maintained facility with excellent, helpful, and polite staff. There is plenty to do, slots, horse racing, excellent restaurants and brewery, fun events and concerts, and a new hotel being built! I have never met a rude employee, it's seems every employees hey hire is nice and polite! There are great people working at Scioto Downs! I like the laid back feel of this casino! The new restaurant Brews Brothers is excellent! I defiantly recommend trying even if you don't go to the casino to gamble! The food is excellent, and great beers to try! The patio is nice in the summer to sit outside and enjoy a burger and a beer. Even in the colder months they have a fire going out there to keep you warm! I have been going to watch horse racing at Scioto Downs since I was a kid in the 90s! (My Grandpa worked there in the 80s-90s parking cars RIP!) However I do wish they would update the grand stands and most defiantly the TV viewing area for watching the horse racing at other tracks. I feel it's very outdated, the TVs are small and hard to see, the lighting is bad and theres no sound. I enjoying sitting out there and betting the horses even if there currently isn't any racing going on at Scioto Downs. The club house is very nice with a nice bar. I love it's heated and cooled in the off seasons good place to just hang out with friends. My only problem is, it seems now I never win on the slots. When I first starting going when the casino first opened I hit a big jackpot and seemed I won money quite frequently. It's different now, I have been 20 times in the last year and every time Iv spent $200-$400 in couple hours and walk out broke. I now it's gambling and some people lose and some win! Just seems to me the payouts and odds have went way down. People need to win once in while!! I find myself going lees and less now because of this.
  • Great place to meet friends and satisfy a large group and now a new hotel and plenty of Airbnbs in the you seem to always win !!! lol
