WOW Not what I expected at a dog track. The buffet was amazing and had the best beef brisket I ever had!!! I highly recommend even if you don't bet on the puppies!

One of my favorite Buffets. If you like quality food this is your place! Crab legs, filet mignon, too many foods to name. Dessert is not included but never have room for dessert anyway! This is an adult only buffet so I could not take my kids, so it's perfect for a date night.

I have gone there a couple times now and really enjoy the buffet. The food is well prepared and though some items are the staples,prime rib,and crab legs other items are often switched out to mix it up

The buffet is great! and attentative service you will ever find at any buffet! And that includes Vegas! Plus, you get a chance to play the dogs, which I do not gamble, but enjoyed the opportunity to do so while enjoying my delicious meal!!

While in St Petersburgh visiting family we were treated to a night out at the races. It was our first time at the dog races and although we didn't quite understand who to bet it was very interesting to watch. The food and our server and her assistant however was amazing.

We have dined at the Derby Club about 6 times in the past year, the buffet they offer has a lot of variety and the quality is very good. The atmosphere is excellent, very classy with gorgeous window views from every table and can't be beat. Our only issue is the drink service is usually quite slow and seems to... More
