Decided to try the Raceway out for lunch and play the slots for a while. The restaurant overlooks the raceway and is quite spacious, so you can sit and watch the horses getting their exercise. They have 2 daily specials at lunch time, plus choices...More

Buffet is always well stocked and fresh. Selections change from time to time. Roast beef cuts are generous and ham is tasty. Servers are attentive, drinks freshened, and used plates cleared promptly. Major desert bar, calories be dammed , fill up!!

We go to this casino once in a while. It is a typical casino with slot machines, and it is almost always full.. It is sometimes difficult to get machines we want to play. So we spend time roaming around. The level of noise has...More
