Have been there for work and friend transfers/gatherings many times. Food was always great, buffet fresh and restocked regularly and multiple choices. I will keep going back.

My friend and I stopped here after two disappointing Chinese buffets near Charlottetown and this place really made up for the other two. Tear apart juicy beef and the best scones I've ever had (rosemary vanilla)- not dry for once! Also mussels, fish fillet, and a huge selection of desserts including blueberry mousse, all sorts of pies... we both left... More

I had the best buffet in town here. Delicious and wonderful service! I particularly liked the lunch buffet but the supper was good too. I'm not a fish eater but it was really good just the same.

I can't say anything about the casino, since I don't gamble, but the harness racing, especially during Old Home Week (August) is a real treat. The park is quite old, quaint, well-preserved, and all the events are accessible either by watching from the stands or standing right at the track. Children are permitted, too.

The casino is rather sad and disappointing. Dark and gloomy with not a lot of happy people about. Can think of a lot of better ways to be separated with my cash. Try the horse races, much more entertaining. Did not try the buffet, but have heard good things about it, but again, it is a buffet.

Food was excellent and an attempt had been made to slant the menu to Elvis Presleys Graceland favourite food items. This was followed by an Elvis imperonator concert, which was also excellent

We planned to visit the casino during our trip to Charlottetown as a "rainy day" activity. Well, it didn't end up raining (gotta love unpredictable island weather!) but we went anyway, and were glad that we did! We went on a Friday, which is when they have their Surf and Turf buffet. It was DELICIOUS!!! We made a reservation but... More

Run of the mill Casino, nolthing special. Vacationing from Ontario, where Casino's know the value of satisfied patrons - non-alcoholic drinks are FREE. PEI, on the other hand has extremely tight machines (didn't see anyone winning) and they charg an outrageous amount for pop or coffee. Shame on you.
