  • Great Fun! It is great to have horse racing in Minnesota! It would be great if there were more variety of foods but what is there is very good and really inexpensive for this type of venue. Lots of parking and even if it rains the seating is comfortable.
  • The horse races are super fun to watch! Any horse can win! Great atmosphere and friendly people.. the horse riders are even nice! They let you feed and pet the horses! Listening to PAUL ALLEN is ALWAYS THE BEST! HES ENTERTAINING AND MAKES IT FUN for the crowd!! CANTERBURY IS THE BEST TRACK IN THE USA!!
  • Canterbury Park has all the basics of a good horse track, so don't expect upscale or extras. They do a good job with the actual horses and racing, but the facilities are very sparse, dated and at times not clean. They have been partnering now with the casino up the street and most of that money is going towards the horses, but I'd really like to see their interior areas updated. The floors are peeling in some places, the furniture is classic 1985 in many areas, there are odd corners and curtains and overall a strange flow to some of the floors. They did update some areas over the winter, but not enough to make that overall impression. Again, the people that work there are nice and really do a great job with the horses and races, it's just the f/b operations and facility that gives this a OK rating.
  • As with any gambling establishment, many people leaving one star reviews are probably upset they lost money. I want to be objective as possible with my take on Canterbury, and I think I can, for I have neither won nor lost a significant amount here. The variety of blackjack they offer is nice, with some interesting takes I haven't seen many places elsewhere. The minimum bets usually aren't too high either (around $10 when I've been there) which makes for a nice experience. For the bad now: the premises need some SERIOUS renovations. As a casino, they have no excuse for the outdated look they sport in their eating and drinking areas. Even the TVs were underwhelming. The food is also, for the most part, not good. I really wished they had better, more fresh options in their indoor cafeteria. Most food you'll find here is concession quality. That being said, watching the horse races is fun, especially as a family activity. It's much better to come here for the races, but unless you want to play Texas hold 'em, I would stick with Mystic Lake for your gambling needs.
  • very nice here. always have a good time. grab a few friends and head down there. very good company
