I am not a Casino guy - actually, the noise of all those goofy machines drives me crazy. BUT, this place has a really cool race tract facility and several of the fields are LARGE (like 9 or more horses). That seems somewhat rare these days outside of Kentucky. The paddock was easy to access and betting was very easy... More

My wife and I came here during out trip in Erie, PA. Over all the gaming choices are a little sparse considering what is available in the area as far as casino's go. We aren't smokers so, but a little smoke isn't going to kill anyone. There was room to play on the tables and slots depending on what you... More

Decent size and plenty of slot machines. Slot machine drink service is spotty. Servers don't attend to the areas too much. Defiantly check out the horse racing. Fun to watch and or bet too.

I love to go to the track to watch horse races. These are beautiful creatures and it is always a thrill to see them coming down the stretch to the finish. Even if you don't bet it is still a fun time. Admission is free and soft drinks and water is also free. The hamburgers in the upstairs restaurant-brew brothers-... More

Went during Kentucky Derby. Thought since the casino also had horse racing they would have a promotion for the derby. Was wrong. Although we could bet on the race they was no type of "watch party" Also note that racing is only Sun-Thurs, so if you are planning to watch horse racing Fri-Sat then you'll be disappointed. On the plus... More

Bob, Thanks for taking the time to review PID. We are glad you and your party had a good time on the casino floor and betting on the horses. The Brew Brothers is now completely finished and looks awesome! If you are interested in a Watch Party for the Kentucky Derby, we do have one. The Brew Brothers takes reservations... More

The Presque Isle Casino reeks of cigarette smoke, so my husband and I opt for the Presque Isle Downs. Fortunately, the horses raced the evening we were there. We were seated at the finish line at the Brew Brothers Restaurant where we had a good meal while betting and watching the races. I returned a loser, but I will be... More

Lorrie, The Brew Brothers is an awesome spot to eat, drink and watch the horses! We are glad you enjoyed it. as for the casino, we have smoking and non-smoking sections and out filters are top-of-the-line to try and keep that smoke smell out of our non-smoking areas. To avoid walking through our smoking section, try entering through the east... More

$14.99 lunch At first glance looks good. Second look not so much. Brisket was burned on bottom and had poor choice of seasoning. Also had turkey and pork loin at carving station. Asian station was old dried fried rice that looks like they threw soy sauce and a scrambled egg in it. Small egg rolls and a chicken dish that... More

Some of the dealers and Pit crews have not been properly trained. My last visit (not going back) included a Texas Holdem dealer who after dealing 2 hands and having difficulty with the payouts informed the table she did not know the various poker hands and their rankings. A dealer at the craps table did not know how to book... More

Very nice slot machines and friendly bar area to relax. The odds on slots seemed good and would definitely return if in area again.
