My family had a wonderful at the Fort Erie Race Track on September 4, 2016. The gardens were in full bloom and our family had a great day eating hot dogs and hamburgers and sausage on the bun, while watching these beautiful horses and jockey's race for the day.

The track is always exciting and fun. You can get up close to the horses, they are beautiful animals. The Tiki Bar is always busy and the music very enjoyable. It's a very old school feel when we visit the track. Always a great time.

We really enjoy going to this race track . It is older but simple to understand and simple to bet . We did not try the restaurants but did get a hotdog that wasn't to special . The race caller was clearly understood and knowledgeable . Quiet and relaxing and we won a little also .

The big event of the year! The place was booming with excitement when you walk into the place. Daily Racing Forms, pocket programs and other programs are available at the entrance way of the race track. The food is great like a hot dog. Would go back every year!

This appears to be an older track and their logo "alive and kicking" reflects their determination to stay open. While many race tracks have had to resort to the addition of a casino to survive, Fort Erie stands alone and seems to be doing well. You can bet in either U.S. or Canadian money and get paid out in the... More

This track has been around for many many years and while it is a little tired and struggling over the last few years it still has a lot to offer. It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with our family. Some of us even came home with a little bigger wallet than we went with. I was... More

Although the races are some of the best to be seen, the crowds are small - except during the Prince of Wales Race Day. There is a very nice indoor restaurant where you can eat and watch the races. There is also a trackside bar and grill. If you want to just sit in the covered stands, you will be... More

Lovely times are to be had at this track for an evening or afternoon (Sundays). The infield is gorgeous, the horses are beautiful and I usually break even. The horses are well taken care of by the grooms that are sometimes almost dragged around the walking ring when they are anxious to get on the track. Food is reasonably priced... More

This track has seen better days but it's still a good day out. There is no entrance or parking fee so your only expenses are betting and food. Tuesday evening racing is particularly attractive – nice to sit in the grandstand and enjoy the refreshing evening breeze. Betting windows are concentrated at the clubhouse end, and there are many stairs... More

This place used to have slots but is now solely a racetrack. When we visited it had just closed and only operates on Tuesdays and Sundays in the afternoon. It's very quiet and has seen better days. Still it's clean with good seating to view the races. It's just there isn't the volume of business now as in the past.... More
