    The food here has improved greatly over the years, but the service is horrible....SLOW, SLOW, SLOW and unprofessional. On my last visit a couple days ago: I had to get up and go to the bar to get a wa...  more »

    Had an enjoyable, relaxing time watching the horses and placing a few $2 bets. The program explains betting quite thoroughly and you can either place bets and collect at the "window", or during dinner...  more »

    Overall my family had a fun day at the track watching the horses. The Running Aces horse races are a lot of fun for everyone. We started out though with a poor dining experience in the bar area. We should have made dinning room reservations in advance because we have had good meals in years past in the dinning room but this year we could not get into the main dinning room. So this time we tried eating in the bar area. We have also had better experiences at Lucky's outside in years past. All of the servers were working hard running around serving their tables but the service was slow and the food was not the quality we were expecting. The pot roast was fatty, the tacos had little meat and flavor, the Buffalo Chicken salad and pizza also tasted like frozen dishes warmed up in the microwave. I recommend reserving a table outside near the building in advance of your arrival, luckily we were able to get one using the stand by list. It worked very well for our party of 9.

    Best non smoker casino and race track... U will never go home smelling like a pack of cigarettes. Many blackjack 21 tables price range from $2 to $200. Good customers and Kind dealers. Their Food is the best with great prices. Nice bar too. They also have poker tables. Harness horse racing 3 days a week but No slots. I love it there!!!

    I am so impressed with Running Aces. I loved everything about Running Aces. Including toilet paper in the bathrooms. Which was much nicer than you find in many places you go. The doors opened nicely. The doors weren't too heavy. And being handicapped those are important parts.

    I'm a heavy gambler. Been going Indian casinos for many year's. Once you play here you will never think bout indian casinos.This place pays you 95% back. Love it. Food great/prices,racing could get a little better but free admission worth take family. Dealers hand shuffle are some should never be dealer as a former dealer. Find the right attitude and your luck will change. Yes hotel and slots would be awesome.State of Minnesota laws are stupid and we must have state casinos. Gambler in win

    Onion rings that are black, shows that they don't care, how do you make black onion rings? Or you could clean your deep fryer and they would be a clean golden color, I had the Cuban sandwich and the pork was old/frozen, you could smell it juice was running out of it (frozen food). If you are going to sell food make it fresh or do not serve it. I can make better food at home. A year later they still serve frozen food, when your burger has grill marks and not cooked on a grill.
