  • We had a great day at the race track! This was my first time and I know NOTHING about betting. Luckily, I was with some people who knew what to do. We bought a Groupon that included a program, $5 for concessions/beer, valet parking, and $2 for betting. Great buy! Highly suggest getting a program. It will detail how to bet and provide all the information about the races going on that day. Draft beer prices were really reasonable too, which was a great surprise.
  • My first trip to a race track and I loved it. We went three times in a week. Watched the races from right at the rail near the finish line. Wednesdays admission is free and the parking is always free. Recent food and drinks at not uterly ridiculous prices like some sporting venues. All in all a great way to spend an afternoon.
  • Enjoyed a beautiful day watching the horse races. We dinned at the Silk's Bar and grill. The food was delicious from breakfast to salad, burger was huge and delicious and the Short rib sliders. Yummy. And we broke even. So a wonderful free day with the family.
  • We were at the Tampa Bay Downs for the Pinellas Park Kiwanis Club that go every year and sponsor one of the races. Today it was Race 5. We had a great time. Several of us went down to Winner's Circle ( the number 7 horse in pink silks ). That was great. This is a great event for inexpensive family outing or friends to go out. Just a couple bucks to get in and it's up to you to spend money on drinks alcoholic and non-alcoholic as well as Simple burgers and fries or Gourmet style meals in the clubhouse. I hope to return before the season ends!
  • The Tampa Bay downs is one of my favorite places to go when I go to Florida. It makes for a great day every time I go. First of all the food is very good and is responsibly priced from 6-12 dollars a meal. Once you start betting you will find that the staff is friendly and the optional computers are simple and easy to use. Lastly the seating options very from out or benches, tables etc. To indoor tables and even a club area. Over all I recommend the downs for beginners and experienced gamblers
