    Our experience is always good. Our server “Beauty” was excellent and always made sure we had drinks. Drinks are a bit over-priced. We go for the racing which we enjoy and the host/hostess are always great.

    Disappointed in the variety of main dishes and desserts. Could not get tea. No offers of 2nd cup of coffee. Had to ask for more water. Beverages should be available at buffet.

    Buffet - no fresh salads- just corn and potato, then the hot foods which were just barely warm consisting of white rice, small roasted potatoes, lasagna (I think that’s what it was consisting of mostly pasta with no sauce), chicken drumsticks and wings. That buffet was disgusting. The desserts were good, I guess because they were produced elsewhere consisting of squares and cake plus fresh fruit. The coffee was hidden away at the far end of the room but of coarse it was also luke warm. We were a party of 12 and you can rest assure that no one will ever come to another buffet and will be telling all their friends.

    our server was pretty bad, didn’t check on us what so ever, after we talked to a manager we played at the slots outside homestretch and our server came up to ask and asked what was wrong with the service and she continued to argue with what we ordered and couldn’t admit her mistake. but what happened was we ordered 2 buffets, one clubhouse and the server didn’t punch it in and said that we didn’t order with her it must’ve been with someone else but she just wasn’t a very good server.

    First of all...there was a power outage in the casino...had to wait 1/2 hour for a personal payout at the machine I was playing. Then...we went to homestretch...requested a table close to the finish line a month ago, but we were seated 1/2 way down the window area. Then...it was Friday...and we didn't want the buffet, but we had to get our own food from the food venue in the casino...when we made the reservations, they said that a server would help us...but that was for Thursdays only. Then...they were short staff servers, so we waited and waited for a server for water and drinks...finally we went to the bar and the supervisor said that our table didn't have a server...huh? So we would have just sat there? Finally she asked a wonderful young man if he could pick up our table...he did a wonderful job. We were not impressed...and last time we went to Homestretch...there were other issues...the management does have to do something. The races, though, were fun!

    The service was great in homestretch. Buffet wasn’t great and having to leave our party to order at Foodies and bring our own food back wasn’t ideal. Waited 64 mins for a salad and missed a majority of the retirement part were there for just waiting on food. Food at foodies served out of order of arrival. Manager was good about getting our food out once we asked for a refund. Found huge pieces of plastic in food from the buffet and Foodies as well, but staff was very apologetic and refunded those meals. Overall decent experience minus the foodies dilemma.

    I read the other reviews and we decided to go anyway, so we were prepared. It is not the buffet of pre Covid. The cost is 29.99 and they throw in a 10.00 voucher for betting on the ponies. It's your decision whether you want to use that or not. I also believe you can order from the kitchen. The races were great and we had lots of fun there. It would be nice if they started updating the mismatched tables/carpet etc. for I would recommend if you were wanting a fun night out and were looking for something low key to do. It wouldn't be a recommendation to do on multiple weeks in a season. It's a been there done that kinda thing. The Homestretch was only half full on a Friday night, so it was easy to get a table on the main floor. The tiers were all empty. I hope this helps

    An excellent smorgasbord held in conjunction with the Harness Racing better at Fraser Downs. Service was excellent as the staff had to serve a large number of tables in the grandstand area. Would definitely return again.

    The buffet is in need of good food ! In the past it would have lots of hot and cold good tasting dishes. From different kinds of rolls to lots of choice salads, hot ham, roast beef , pulled pork and wonderful homemade desserts . Last night home cooked potato chips,white rolls a soggy fish, dried rice only cold potato salad, no greens ,fried chicken some Costco boxes square’s choices and a bowl of fresh Mellons pineapple and a few strawberries . The workers are happy and helpful they are trying to their best . Lots of people there too. Just the food was a waste. I have bin going to this place probably since it opened My birthday’s with all my grandkids, their parents,my grand mothers 90th birthday, my daughters pre wedding dinner and Anniversary’s Yes I have been to the buffet there over the years but last night was definitely not the best. I’m trying to to find a complement. I love going to the Track it’s a great night fun for all but next time I’ll be carrying my food in and be like the man beside me and have have a pop or a glass of wine that is ok but a bit on the expensive side. We keep hoping that things have changed but I expect only the cook and his helpers the rest have left the building. So disappointing but I keep trying and hoping that a company that is bringing in lots of cash could creat something worthwhile to eat. Maybe next time ?

    Buffet was okay. Nothing to write home about. The prime rib was good...juicy and med rare. the Turkey was a little dry and overcooked. Fish was NOT AT ALL GOOD. Dont TOUCH the fish. Must be tilapia or some awful fish like that. SO fishy and inedible. The rest was okay. Passable for a night of horseracing, but could SO EASILY with a bit of effort and a bit more budget, be made worthwhile.... Atmosphere was fun. Horse racing was really fun. I think our group enjoyed it. Wait staff are friendly, but SO untrained. Can't answer any questions at all about the food, the gambling....sadly. Buffet staff...the man carving the prime rib was kind and sweet and helpful. the skinny tall guy with glasses that was assisting was SO irritable...we had 18 people that I brought, and two got there late just as they had started to pack up the meat to put the buffet away. I let them know that they were hungry, would love to eat, we had already paid for them, and if they could please just put the two plates they were putting away back out for two minutes. He looked at us, snarled, kept on an angry face, was visibly and vocally swearing under his breath at us..after I had just paid for 18 people and their food and drinks!! One of the most unprofessional staff I have come across in a LONG time. Overall, we had a good time. Racing was fun to watch. Gambling on the races was first time for me and for many of the team. Quite a few really enjoyed. The building is nice. Casino and restaurant clean and smoke free, tall windows to view over the face track are great. Lighting is really good. It was overall a very fun evening. BUT, the staff need training. The member of the Buffet team (not the gentleman doing the meat carving who was wonderful, but the other) needs training, manners, compassion.....should have had better parenting!

    There for a staff christmas party. Service was terrible. Waiting 30 min for a coffee and first drinks took just as long if not longer! No water dropped off at tables. Had to speak with management to tell them we were NOT paying the auto gratuity for such bad service. Only good thing, our reservation was at 6pm so the food was hot and delicous. Recommendation to a friend is a BIG MAYBE!!!

    Our small office of 6 have come here for many years, I was disappointed that this year we couldn’t reserve a table at window and then we see two empty tables and some with one or two people. I even called ! We didn’t attend for a couple of years b/c of Covid of course, but the buffet is certainly not like it used to be, very long lines as you didn’t have the big buffet you used to have operating 4 lines in two directions, and then out of salads and some roasters empty. We enjoy the horse racing with the group but will rethink the meal next time. I would recommend with caution

    The cafe food was decent and well priced. The service in the Homestretch was quite slow, but understandable given that the place was jam packed and our server was new (she was really sweet and tried hard). Our table wasn’t really a table, more like a line of desks, so it was tough to socialize with anyone not directly next to you. Also, we were away from the windows, so we had to view the races on the TV screens which cut off the left margin, so we had to cross reference the names on the program to figure out which horses won/placed. That being said, it was still a really fun night and we will be back again. Just not on a friday night a few weeks before Christmas.

    The price for the buffet based on the quality of food was too much. You can only purchase over priced drinks from the wait staff, not the bar. There were not enough wait staff for the amount of people. It took half an hour to get our drinks both times.

    We used to come here for our Christmas party every year, and it was the highlight of everyone's year. Unfortunately, this year was the first time we came since it was closed during covid, and it was not the same. The buffet was limited with less salad options and not enough food. They ran out of potatoes (so we never had any) and multiple times people were waiting for the buns, potatoes or vegetables to be refilled. This made the lineups very long. The drinks were limited as well, and we could no longer get specialty drinks. Just beer, wine and highballs. I found the tables to be crammed together and longer than normal, so they were crowding into where the people were lined up for betting. The one highlight was our waitress who was on task, and kept our table of 14 stocked with Christmas cheer! Of course the horses were beautiful and also kept us well entertained for the evening. Overall everyone had a great time, but i'm not so sure we'll be back next year.

    Found out when paying they changed the price of the Buffet two days prior only advertised on Facebook. Was not worth $34.95. Beef was very fatty, chicken was dry and salty and the salad was wilted with little dressing. Dessert did not stand out and went very fast. They did not have enough servers and the bar tender was for a private party so you could not go to the bar to order yourself. Dissatisfied . Will go again for the races but not to eat.

    Unfortunately there was not enough staff to cover the amount of people who attended. Long waits for drinks, and long lines lining up for placing bets on the harness races. Staff did the best they could - but very understaffed.

    Home stretch used to be really good. Food is fresh, not much to choose from. But if you have not been here for the live racing, and the prior buffet, than you might like it.
