this nice restaurant offered beautiful view of the racetrack. the rooney's saw fit to close this beautiful area because they were not making enough money, thus costing people who worked here for years to either work in lousy jobs or be terminated. it was not enough they were making millions in their casino. they are the filtiest family in the...

The food at the Empire Terrace is great but tends to be a bit pricey. So if you're not out to spend a chunk of cash on "good eats" just eat in the cafe where you'll still pay a little higher for what you get, but at least the food is good.

The food is good and the place is extremely clean; the courtesy and the attention of the employees can not be better. I can tell anybody to eat there when in the casino.

I was taken to this restaurant for my birthday few weeks ago and it was one of the worst dining experiences I can remember. The service was beyond slow. My friend and I shared one of those huge frozen drinks and I could detect no alcohol at all. When the food finally came, it was beyond disappointing. We both ordered... More

My husband and I went to the races this past Saturday and decided to eat at this restaurant which overlooks the racetrack. WE have eaten there is the past and heard it was now serving barbeque. It took a long time for a waitress to come to the table. She took the food order but had to come back with... More

I often go to Empire City Casino, but have only dined a handful of times. This is by far the worst, I along with 3 others had dinner this past Saturday. My wife's Mignon was cold and overcooked, my friend's cowboy was 50% fat. The other 2 meals were below average, for the price its not worth eating at the... More

I had a voucher for $90 for dinner at the Empire Terrace and although it was busy that night, we got seated very quickly and service throughout was decent. The food was exceptional and our table against the window overlooking the track with it's only little tv screen right on the table was awesome. I'm planning to go back next... More

My husband & I along with another 2 couples had dinner at this restaurant last Saturday evening. We arrived at 7 PM and the restaurant was more than half empty. We ordered our meals and it took a good hour and a half before we received our food. The waitress could care less. We all ordered a cesar salad with... More

I tried to go on a Saturday night at around 7:30 and the place was absolutely packed but this weekend I went early on Friday evening and the whole experience was lovely. Easy to park. The restaurant is good. The entrees come with a starch and vegetable but no salad.
