Last month we went to the Rideau Carleton Raceway for the Saturday night Seafood/Prime Rib Buffet to celebrate my sister's birthday. We all agreed the food was very good and the price was right. Besides the crab legs, prime rib, mussels, BBQ ribs, shrimps, made to order chicken souvlaki, etc., there were salads, yummy desserts and so on. Unless you... More

However, I like my eggs easy over and that option was not available. They have a big bin of scrambled eggs, so I... More

Always like the buffet - we've been there many times. Decided on this visit to order from the menu. Bad decision! Ordered the steak sandwich. It came to the table cold. Sent it back and it was returned to me cold again. It was NOT a busy night. Stick with the buffet.

I want to congratulate Rideau Carleton on such a awful new year dinner buffet. The beef was tough and very grizzly, lasagna was awful hard and dry, but what would one expect for a new year dinner? Turkey with stuffing, meat pie, mashed potatoes. Wrong none of those there, the choices were ribs beef and salmon. Congratulations Rideau Carleton buffet... More

We are not Casino or Horse Race fans, but attended as part of a group event. Nor are we buffet fans but were very surprised with the quality of the buffet. They had roast beef cut on demand and had a nice selection of sides. With the great deserts offered as well as cheese and salads, the offering was OK.... More

Our family attended Sunday Brunch and had a wonderful experience. There were 5 children and 4 adults and all of us were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The variety of food and the quality was perfect. The staff was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great. I will definitely be back with our family.

The slot machines and the casino are OK but not anymore a great attraction to me, but the buffeet is one of the best in Ottawa area, and the price is not too bad.
