I have visited this Colonial Beach venue which had Off Track betting,KENO, and Comedy show advertised on a Saturday afternoon. There were at least 50 patrons in attendance when I visited. It was a few steps away from the River Edge Inn hotel and it offered a full bar and a future warm weather outdoor dining option.

It's nice place! Food smelled good! But it was not very convenient for new people. No one greeted. We had no idea what and where to go. So we just left

The drinks and service were okay but the food was horrible. Over cooked wings, burnt hush puppies, and a crab dip with no crab, basically a plate of cream cheese with some garlic bread. I would think that since this is a gambling establishment, there would be a little better upkeep. Since its really the only gig in town, they... More

We did the prime rib special. Views of the Potomac river/bay are enjoyable. Watched the local wild life during our dinner. Prime rib dinner was very good. Most of this establishment is set up for gambling. This establishment is over the river, which puts it in Maryland, not VA. Kind of crazy, but from the H2O line outward is Maryland.
