Casino was dark, under a grandstand - Discount on food for new members - Food was good, but menu was limited, and no full buffet. I would rather have had free slot play. Nice that it was non-smoking, with enclosed smoking rooms, but I would rather go to Vernon Downs any day.

Although clenliness is not their strong point, there is both indoor and outdoor seating for summer / winter racing. The host many New York State Sire Stakes and I had the priveledge of seeing Niatross Race here. There was a bar on betting on him. Beer, any beverage and food are expensive. You pay to park, for admittance, and for a racing form in the first five minutes. Several yrs ago they added slot machines and there is simulcasting. Very well lit track for night racing. If you use the bathroom try not to touch anything.

Very nice and pleasant place. Friendly people. Easy access with parking right across the street and the area is safe and well lit.

Visited this weekend. They have a really nice racetrack and grandstand area. Very accessible. Anywhere you sit you can see the races perfectly. Not to mention the tvs at the tables. Nice bar facing the racetrack. Nice and friendly service. Didn't eat there but the food looked and smelled really good. The casino on the other hand is not as desireable. Definitely needs updating. Beverage service for coffee and soft drinks, but if you want an alcoholic drink very hard to find. Only one restaurant with a bar other than the racetrack bar when the races are going. All in all I would recommend for a fun evening.
