Impeccable Service, Great Quality Food, Soviet Era Management!

Had the 'race night buffet' and enjoyed eating and then watching the harness racing. The buffet had some great quality food that was very well and cleanly presented. The standouts were the steamed mussels, seafood chowder, and the island beef. What was really surprising to me was how good the green... read more

Our staff dinner was held last week and we chose to go to the Top of the Park. Our group was 50 employees. When we arrived there were other groups as well. I was worried that there wouldn't be enough to eat. Boy was I wrong. There was plenty to eat, everything was hot, and food was replenished before it... More

Considering it is an all you can eat buffet, the pricing isn't bad. You do get a great view of the racetrack. The food is not the attraction here.

Our last visit to what used to be a great buffet didn't hold up to my expectations. The food was lukewarm, not replenished quickly and quite bland.

I love this place and I frequently visit the top of the park with friends and family. My boyfriend and I love going for lunch. Such a great price for a buffet that actually has a huge selection. The evening buffets are just as good and offer you mussels as well as seafood chowder. Pop used to be included with... More

Wow! What a Friday night seafood and prime rib buffet with lots of good options including oysters, crab legs, mussels, halibut and chicken and pork. Loaded seafood chowder and interesting salads. A table of desserts with a dozen to choose from. A red and a white wine were both on for a special price of $20.00 per bottle. I would... More

Most of the places to eat that are unique to the Island have some features that this American noticed: 1. High price in Canadian dollars, 2. smaller portions, 3. food not seasoned that much... Most of the restaurants we paid a lot for, and walked away still hungry. This was a pleasant exception. The negative first for some people. This... More

Great food, good price, just wish hours were a little more obvious. Can go in random times and the place is closed. I always just call now.

We always attend the yearly Easter Brunch Buffet and are never disappointed. Lots of choices for both children and adults and very reasonably priced. Brunch includes both typical breakfast fare such as eggs Benedict and French toast as well as the salad bar, Prime Rib, chicken dishes and vegetables. The children love to watch the horses in training on the... More

Let me start by saying I rarely write a review on Tripadvisor, We were on a family visit to PEI last week and the highlight of our trip was going to be an evening at the Top of the park. A relative in PEI made reservations for our group which totalled 14 well in advance of the date. When the... More
