Saturday night is the seafood buffet and prime rib roast beef night. Lots of seating. Nice view of the race track from all seats. The food is good. Price very reasonable.

I have reviewed the casino before, and still enjoy the casino, and am sometimes sad to see some favorite slot go, but be replaced by newer ones. I understand the need for change and modernization. This review however, is of the restaurant at lunch time. We were a party of five, and the service was excellent as usual. I felt... More

A very good cassino. Lots of slots. Cassino is clean and well kept. We always enjoy our time at this Cassino. People are nice and we seem to get a lot of play time. A great evening out. There is live entertainment on Saturday. There is a buffet on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday for 11.99 a great value.

The track restaurant has been remodeled and is now very suitable for 2016. There is now a vibrancy to it. The buffet continues to be the best in Ottawa and quite frankly in any other Ontario based raceway. While the price has risen modestly the value cannot be minimized. This is a fine venue for all description of circumstance, whether... More

for $21.99 there is an all you can eat crab & ribs buffet. Fresh stir fry shrimp, prime rib, many choices including chicken and fish. Excellent salad and desert selection. Saturday nite you must be over 18 and identify if there are mobility issues. This is very popular so reservations are recommended. There may be shuttles available from different down... More

You get what you pay for. Some of the buffet food looks like it was thrown on the table. Saturday night is too full for comfort, large wait lines, people leaning over the food, rude loud diners pushing people to get another plate of slop, poor service with minimal staff so plates aren't cleared. Unclean & risky health standards. Not... More

When you need to free your emotions cheering at the horses, get excited at the possibility of a big win playing at the casino or eat a big meal at the buffet... what better place than Rideau Carleton Raceway & Casino. Enjoy, every piece of the action and have the chance of a big win!!

The Casino is currently undergoing some renovations but are not a real distraction. When completed the casino and restaurant will be a really great place to visit. The restaurant is still a fantastic buy. Monday to Wednesday are a lower price while Thursday to Sunday is more expensive but comes with more variety (including crab legs). I have never had... More

We invited ourselves out once again to the Slots Casino in Ottawa off the Albion road for some nice personal date time (yes, even for us sixty gen guys). This would be about the 18th time we have been there over the last ten (10) years. We always try go there during the National days of different countries ( Spain,... More
