we don't often get to go to the races but really enjoyed our afternoon during old home week. the staff were friendly, the service was great and the food was very good considering it was a buffet - which are difficult to maintain any sort of quality with.

They are run by Atlantic Lottery and so easy to see how the slots are controlled and manipulated, my advice is to stay away from Casino but if you like to see a horse... More

I love their soups. I travel all the way from Cornwall to have their soups. Fish and chips are great too.

We are visiting from Florida, where the Seminole Indians have a pact with the State to operate Casinos (both machines and table games) at various locations throughout the state. Some are just as nice as ones you would find in Las Vegas. So with being accustomed to places like that back home, this Casino was an extreme disappointment. Didn't find... More

I was surprised how fun is to watch the horse race. However, dont forget to eat well before going because there are not many options around there and the restaurants get pretty crowded.
