  • Been visiting this track on every vacation to St Petersburg for over 10 years now. A fun place to spend the evening. They offer OTB for more than dogs too, you can place bets on horses and steeplechase. The lines for the betting counters are short and the staff are efficient. The snack bar was a little overwhelmed during our last visit but they got everyone taken care of. Only the big board on the far side of the track needs a little love, but we had no trouble reading it. Can't wait to go back!
  • I've been to one other dog park in West Virginia. This one ranks pretty high. It's one of the oldest tracks in the United States. Very historical very clean had a great time. But I don't understand why there wasn't many people there on a weekend evening for the races. I would think more people would come there and bring their kids it's very fun
  • I enjoy the food and the atmosphere. I wish there was musical entertainment. It's sad that a place that brings in so much Financial capital had such a difficult time fixing a roof over the top floor betting, bar and restaurant area.
  • Player beware. If you play poker, do not play here- unless you like having a completely different floor call depending on who you get. Nothing is uniform, and tournaments involving multiple bags are manipulated by groups of friends who dump to each other. Better places to play. Be warned.
  • Gambling area is very nice, roomy, comfortable and easy to navigate for first-time visitors. Staff is always friendly. Dress is very casual.
