When I knew we were to have an evening out with my husbands work at Top of the Fair I was skeptical. I had read the reviews and was not looking forward to the evening. I was very wrong. We were fortunate to be in a reserved area with our own bar and servers. It was clean and the appetizers... More

Pricey at $35 for a buffet with ham, Costco Desserts and 1 vegetarian dish. Waitress was great, our reservations were lost even after 3 prior phone calls. Not as good as it used to be!

We have attended the New Years Eve Buffet and Horse Racing event at the Top of the Fair a number of times over the past decade. I don't think that we will do it again. We had wonderful seats with a great view of the track and our server was very attentive under the circumstances. The problems lie in the... More

We were a party of six and had the dinner buffet here in November. We were disappointed both with the quality of the food and the selection. On the menu was roast beef (not prime rib), turkey, and some dry looking salmon, carrots that were almost raw and various salads and rolls. There was hummus and spinach dip, but no... More

The atmosphere is unique with the races going on, and the service was good which is what salvaged a 3 rating from me. The food was literally cold at the buffet. I understand the very concept of the buffet lends itself to food not being piping hot, but this was cold. Cold potato's, cold tortellini, cold carrots, cold soup, warm... More

We were a group of 13 celebrating our friends 50 th Wedding Anniversary. We had a good long table with a Tv at each end, one on the races and the other on the hockey game. The food was fabulous, but a very long line for the prime rib. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. We had a great... More

There were 10 of us and they put us at 3 tables way down in the left corner. The screen at our table for the horse races kept going out and was fuzzy. The carpet is very stained. The soup was good but barely warm. I could not cut my roast beef. The skewers with vegetables and shrimp was mushy,... More
