  • If you love horses, betting or both - this is a fun way to spend the day. Reserve a table to ensure you have a great seat, tv monitors at the table and you'll stay dry if it is a rainy day. Plenty of ...  more »

  • Love coming here to play cards or bet the horses. Will not play table games at Mystic because they do tip share so I find the dealers to be less friendly b and more rude. The dealers here earn their own tips and are a lot of fun. They have Ultimate Hold Em which you will not find at Mystic. Also love depending the day here watching the horse races on the weekend. Great way to spend the day, even if you don't know how to bet horses. You can attend Canterbury College in the spring for free to brush up your race betting. Lots of fun!
  • My husband and I really enjoy Canterbury Race Track, in Shakopee, MN. I'd give it 5 stars if they still allowed you to bring your picnic items in. On very hot days, we drink a lot of water & buying it there, cost an arm & a leg. I only have 2 each of those. I don't get hungry on hot days, but when I do get hungry, food cost even more. But this place is so much fun, we just try to budget the best we can to include it. Entry cost went up a couple $ either this year, or last year, but it's still affordable entertainment, except for the food & drinks. Canterbury is great at promotional features; Bull dog, wiener dog, exotic animals competitions. They have "Buck Night," wine and beer tasting days, live music some days & nights, free hot dog days, etc. There is a play place for kids and special family days. If you register for their race card, free, they send you updates, bulletins, calendars, free tickets, etc, plus you get discounts, free racing programs, etc. Great place!
  • We don't go often, but it's a good cheap day of fun. Even with kids. Love that military members ate free, such a nice perk. Prices for concessions aren't actually that bad, it's affordable. I will say the only negative is that the lines are very long everywhere. They MUST get more bathrooms. I waited 32 minutes to get into the women's bathroom last Sunday. Rediculous.
  • A great place to go for a number of reasons. If you want to sit outside, drink beer and eat fair-oriented foods, this is a good place. If you want to go experience a cross section of 'Merica, think will suffice. If you want to gamble on the ponies or partake in poker, this is the place. On a good weather day, it can be pretty busy here, but there is seemingly always somewhere to sit, but you may have to work at it.
  • Facilities are clean. OK food options. Craft beer bar on the second level. I like it way more since you can now bet on your phone as opposed to waiting in line for those machines. Spend the 10 minutes to set it up! We always have a great time, the 4 times a year we visit.
