I love the atmosphere here - better than Yellow Brick Road - it's larger than YBR, less of a bar crowd, decent food (I've only done the cafe-like place where you can get hot dogs, burgers - service there is not the greatest but it's not a sit down place). The casino is usually clean - they have my favorite... More

great racetrack. everything else a dump. grandstand and concessions in bad need of upgrading.washrooms are a disgrace.i have been in outhouses that smelt better and were cleaner.one look and you can see any money goes to the casino.certainly not a fan favorite place to go to. what a letdown to travel from ontario to visit and to be so disapointed.

TIght machines where you don't get many jackpots but you do get a lot of points for food & gifts... you can easily 'earn' yourself a free lunch with a couple hours of play. Basically all slots. Don't hear many big payoffs here but its probably better paying that the nearby Turning Stone. If you're there, nice side visit.

very depressing place...for a young person. The average age of the patrons was 80 +... they should just install oxygen tanks on all the machines.. the food in the restaurant by the casino was horrid

I've been going there for years for dinners, races and food. It is a much more relaxed environment than the big noisy glitzy casiinos. Sure it's smaller, more limited than the big casinos but it also offers racing with a number of specials. Can't wait for the track to open again. And although small, there is a large variety of...

I loved the atmosphere and especially the smoke free environment! We were able to listen to a great band and also play the slots. The people that go there are always laid back and the staff is very friendly.

I went here recently and I do enjoy the atmosphere. It's not big like Turning Stone and it has a more homey setting inside. Not the noise and crowds like a big casino and that is a major plus in my opinion
