Had made reservations for my wife and I for dinner. Today was the first day of Old Home Week and saw that the Buffet prices were a bit higher. ( I completely understand that) So my wife and I drove an hour to Charlottetown and due to Old Home Week, we had to pay $4.00 for parking off the premises.... More

Dear MMB746, Red Shores is a supporter of the agricultural traditions of PEI on display every year during Old Home Week, and part of that support is the use of our parking lot for the fairgrounds. We do understand, however, that there are additional costs to our patrons who visit during Old Home Week. We apologize that this information was... More

Fantastic buffet, great service (never ran dry), and fantastic atmosphere. I would recommend the Saturday night Buffet at the top of the park, Buffet followed by a few races to anyone! Take in a couple of races outside though, the atmosphere and noise trackside is worth going in itself, even if you don't wager.

Although the food was great, atmosphere was good and service was about average what I really remember about our visit was almost bumping the person behind me with my chair when I tried to stand up from my table to go to the buffet. I understand that they try to accommodate many patrons but taking away from peoples comfort during... More

Small buffet but loved that everything was labelled as gluten free - very helpful and convenient - I even got fresh gluten free bread to the table! Just wish there was a soup option available that was also gluten free. Lovely environment and friendly service. Made the day at the races very enjoyable :)

This is our go to place when we feel like having a good buffet. The food is great and nicely varied with good local flavors. There is always a soup, today's was Tomato Basil. Then there are lots of salads, including a green salad with toppings such as raw veggies, croutons, bacon bits and homemade dressings. Other salads today included... More

We went to Top of the Park for an office party and was expecting the usual buffet. Ok, but not outstanding and same menu as elsewhere. The selection was great : duck breast in an amazing sauce, chicken and fish prepared in a variety of ways and amazing desserts.

Our staff dinner was held last week and we chose to go to the Top of the Park. Our group was 50 employees. When we arrived there were other groups as well. I was worried that there wouldn't be enough to eat. Boy was I wrong. There was plenty to eat, everything was hot, and food was replenished before it... More

Considering it is an all you can eat buffet, the pricing isn't bad. You do get a great view of the racetrack. The food is not the attraction here.

Had the 'race night buffet' and enjoyed eating and then watching the harness racing. The buffet had some great quality food that was very well and cleanly presented. The standouts were the steamed mussels, seafood chowder, and the island beef. What was really surprising to me was how good the green salad and potatoes actually tasted--the produce tasted great and... More

Our last visit to what used to be a great buffet didn't hold up to my expectations. The food was lukewarm, not replenished quickly and quite bland.
