“buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I find the buffet is not really up to par. A lot of the desserts were mainly squares that you know had been cut out of a box. Beef was tough and other things were not very tasty or appetizing.

“Cheaping out”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Firstly, I'm not a big fan of gambling however I would go with my father and my sister. Sometimes we would head over to the buffet or "pretend" we understand horse racing and bet at random as to when the horses would come in.

I'm not a fan of the place because I think alot of people waste their time and energy there. Simple as. When we used to go at New Year's Eve there was a bit of a do. It is unfortunate that for people to meet people that the only way to do this is to go to a gambling establishment but if they are willing to spill their hard-earned cash then at least provide a quality banquet otherwise I would say to convert it to something more meaningful to the patrons who attend regularly...is there even a suggestion box at the Raceway and Casino?

“Pleasant way to spend time with Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

There are slots next door to the dining area , but we prefer to eat and place $2 bets on the horses- food is fair but not main attraction.
