Made the mistake of going on a Friday. It was 50 cent beer and hot dog day, I did not realize how many cheap people there were here from up north. There was no place to sit or stand. Lines were long to enter, place bets, get drinks, and get food. We did not eat or drink anything and only... More

As there is a wait between races, it does stretch a bit, but you can leave at anytime. Most of the money... More

The greyhound races are kind of fun for awhile. Unless a person is really into racing and betting, it get a little old after a couple of hours. We went on a Friday (when they offer $.50 hot dogs and soda). That was ok, but not gourmet however. All in all, it's a unique way to spend a couple of... More

Good entertainment for guys (and ladies if this interests them). We went for a Friday matinee, where entrance fee, hot dogs, beer and soda are $.50 each. There are many theories on choosing which dog will win, and I haven't found a good method yet, but it's still fun. Where else can you get lunch and entertainment for about $20?... More

Decided to visit greyhound racing today and found accommodations were good for watching the action. An enjoyable afternoon.

Last minute decision to go to the dog track but we will do it again. It was 50 cent day....admission, hot dogs, beer & sodas. 14 races so we were there for 4 hours and didn't make any money but had a blast. I say give it a try.

Two daily tournaments, plenty of cash games. Nicest group of dealers you'll find anywhere. Well managed.

Sat outside in upper level. Kinda run down. The valet was less than friendly. It's fun to bet, but everything else here has gone down hill. The snack bar personnel had zero customer service skills.

Have been many times over the years and love these old school dog tracks and glad they added a poker room which I think helps these places stay open since it's amazing how much fewer people go to the tracks now compared to 30 and 40 years ago. It's a fun experience to see the dogs run and you can... More

Great place to play Poker. Friendliest Poker room ever. The building is old and so are a lot of the players....but the action is good. They do their best to make it a good experience. Nearly all the dealers have a great attitude(which is a rarity). The drinks are strong...coffee is free. The food is excellent and they have a... More
