The best of two worlds. Monmouth Park Racetrack is always having a Wine Tasting or Food Trucks Event. Take advantage of it. It's only a couple of dollars to get into the park and you can stay all day. But get there early because the place gets packed fast. Bring a chair and have a picnic. You can also bet... More

Monmouth Park has the most beautiful paddock area. It is a fun place to enjoy the day with family and friends. Facilities are clean and an asset to the Borough of Oceanport.

Monmouth Park is beautiful, has public transportation from Penn Station, and has the best paddock in the world! You can stand closer to the famous superstar horses than you can at any other paddock I've gone to. I saw American Pharoah there, Looking at Lucky, Nyquist: so many superstar horses. Haskell Day is perhaps my favorite day of going to... More

Been coming here since the early 80's. Great racetrack, clean and roomy. Enjoy new changes, sad there are less racing days. Always a collection of the best horses, trainers and jockeys. Hope this place survives for a hundred more years!

My husband and I spent the afternoon at Monmouth Racetrack. It's a fun place, clean and always has a family atmosphere. There's a few restaurants inside ranging from food stands to a sit down restaurant. I enjoy visiting the paddock and watching the horses getting ready to race. The racetrack is near the beach so there's usually a nice breeze... More

Attendance was very light and easy to get to bet. Clubhouse Terrace dining was very pleasant with excellent view and table top computers to watch the race. Service was good and prices reasonable. Portions were large. Parking was easy and short walk to entrance. Nice way to spend lunch and the afternoon.

Once year the clan meets at Monmouth for fun and games. Bring your own food and beverages. Love the shade In the picnic area, but only see small part of the race. Best race track staff on the east coast. Helpful, friendly. Parking is awful. How about a shuttle from the far country of the parking lot. Hit some winners,... More

Bottom Line: OK for what it is but DO NOT buy any food or drinks there. Details: We visited on a Sunday afternoon with a friend who lives in town. We had never been to a racetrack before so it was a nice experience. The grounds were nice and clean but you could tell that it had seen better days.... More

I was invited to one of those corporate days at Monmouth Park. Sitting in the picnic area one thinks of summertime foods, tomato & basil salads, potato salad, corn on the cob, charcoal grilled dogs and burgers. What I got from Monmouth Park was right from the Sam’s Club or Costco quick foods counter. Why on a 95 degree days... More
