Oaklawn is a fun racetrack. The staff is always friendly. They have a variety of good food & Oaklawn serves great drinks too. If you want a run racetrack, then oaklawn is the place to go.

Very nice racetrack and casino. The service was good in all areas. Adult beverages are expensive...$5.50 for a draft beer. Food was above average and only a little overpriced. Our trip was during the off season so it was not crowded.

We went during live racing season (January through April ), but their casino is open year round. Plenty of parking on site.
