“Run down location for a greyhound race track.”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

You must really want to gamble to go here. Very run down building and grounds. Very dirty place to watch the races, and very smokey. This place needed renovated 20 years ago!

“Fun but smokey and where's the food?”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

They advertise (even there) that they have dinner plates but we found the menu very lacking and sparse (and expensive). Customers were smoking where there were non-smoking signs. This is inconsiderate of course but the employees did not ask these customers to comply with the posted signs either. When clearing people out at end of the night the security was very rude and LOUD. We were not disagreeable or uncooperative in the least and felt treated like drunken beligerants.
