I went to the Presque Isle Downs with Friends and Family for a nice day trip. The casino itself was fine but nothing spectacular. After a couple hours there we chose to dine at the Backstretch Buffet since we've been to other casino buffets with what we thought we be similar fare. Sadly, we might have come on the wrong...

It is one of the smaller casinos I have been to. 2 bars on the casino floor, non-smoking section, restaurants on site. The horse races were not running when I was there, I would like to come back during racing season.

We go here for slots and roulette. So far we have been breaking even or slightly ahead. We can't comment on horse races, we have not been here at at time when the horses are running. Nice upstairs lounge with live music, good food and drinks. The only bad thing is Pennsylvania allows smoking inside. While the casino does a... More

The food is great the gambling area well let's say it's no Vegas. And leave it as that. The food could be better but for the area and type it's good.

Food was ok. Service somewhat slow. Servers great but overworked. The servers had a lot of tables to serve. The hostess to seat us took 15 minutes as she was cleaning tables. Otherwise Food and server where courteous.

This was our 2nd time to the horse race track & this time we brought our toddler who loves horses. We were able to sit outside & eat & watch the horses. It was a beautiful night. Only complaint is the parking - the parking lot is quite a walk to the main casino. But they have shuttles to bring... More

I met up with some friends at the casino, and we played the slots machine, and bet on some of the horse races, which was televise on the large screens at the racing section. We also enjoyed a luncheon at the restaurant upstairs above the casino. We was treated very kind by the hostess, and was welcome to the casino... More

First time at this casino in Erie PA and it was a lot of fun. I am not much of a gambler; however, I was there with a group of friends who are and that is what they wanted to do. It ended up being so much fun we went back the next night. There are a lot of different... More

We visited the casino for a short period of time. The greeters and workers were very welcoming and kind. Had fun playing penny slots, which are predominant. Casino is clean.
