Live races on a totally modern track that just seems to shrug off the rain. The dealers treat you like a regular even if you are new. Granted sometimes the dealers English is a little shaky but it was never a real problem. If you are in a wheelchair the casino is very assessable with a family bathroom and lots... More

We stayed one night in Erie, Pa and took a shuttle to this Casino. We've been to may casinos and this was a first for us where they had live horse racing. My wife loved it because you can watch right at the rail. The casino is very clean and mostly non-smoking which I love. There are tons of slots... More

My boyfriend and I traveled here for a small vacation. They have a live horse race track and won a little cash. The horses were beautiful and well taken care of. There are many places to eat in the casino and ample parking. The slot machines were great and entertaining. There are many hotels near by.

This casino offers a wide variety of slots; all the new games that visually entice you to try your luck! Payouts seemed average. Staff in all venues are extremely friendly and helpful. I particularly enjoy the self serve beverage bar; no need to wait on a server. The Buffet served a nice selection and the food was good. My only... More

this casino has a very friendly staff. Is a small casino and buffet closes way too early during the week. Casino is small and dingy probably won't return

My husband and I have visited many times and it never has improved. In 7 years time one would think they could figure out their mistakes. First off, valet parking and cocktails in real casino venues are complimentary. Not here. Outrageous drink prices and $5 valet. Do they really expect a tip from someone who has had their wallet gored?... More

We only live an hour from this casino and had never been there. My sister in law bought us, and our in laws tickets to a concert there for my husbands birthday. The concert was ok, although there was no point in actually purchasing seats because everyone was crowded up to the front anyway. Afterwards we stopped at a table... More

It's a typical casino but with the horses running out on the back track. Because it's right off the interstate (I-90) you can jump off for some fun! The horses only run during certain hours & days. The breakfast buffet (early mornings on weekends only) is an excellent offer for the price (last known it was about $5.99 I think).... More

I recently visited Presque Isle Downs with my cousin during a weeknight. The casino was not busy, so it was the perfect time to go in my opinion. Be sure to sign up for the Players card. They gave us $10 free slot play instantly. The machines definitely let us play. We were there for several hours and had an... More
