    Service was a little slow & we weren’t able to leave when we wanted to as the computer was down & we had to wait about 25 minutes before we could pay our bill.

    Absolutely a fun evening with great atmosphere. The food was delicious, reasonable and plenty of it. I had the pear salad which was very good except I would have preferred fresh pear. We will definitely return another time.

    The food was good, not great. My salmon was a little overcooked and the vegetables were not cooked quite enough, especially the potatoes. A bit expensive.

    Extremely slow service, would not return unless they are staffed if that was the issue. Half hour before we saw a waitress after seating, 2 1/2 hours to have brunch with small pre-determined menu. Had previously eaten there and enjoyed it. Not a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day.

    The servers/wait staff were exceptional but the kitchen was way too slow with the food preparation. We waited over an hour for our main course and spent more than 2 hours in total at our table. Unacceptable.

    Unfortunately there were not enough servers for the number of people dining. We waited far too long for each course. It was not our servers fault, she was doing the best she could. After 2 hours we had to go and did not get water replenished or tea/coffee.

    The service was extremely slow. Not the servers fault as she was good. I suspect they were overwhelmed in the kitchen. Or not enough staff. Took us 70 minutes from sitting down to get our appetizer. My steak was very small and the plate was full of hash brown potatoes. I suspect they loaded up the plates with the home fries to make the plate look full. Will not be going there again.

    The food was very good, we enjoyed the salmon and pasta, service was good, overall a very enjoyable evening. A good night out, we will come again. First time visitor, not sure if the raceway track infield is under construction ? sure needs some curb appeal, racewaytrack appearance was a big let down.

Very pleased with dinner selections, good variety of prices. Bar menu was also good - appreciate that local beers were offered on tap. Looking forward to returning!

    Food has been very good each time we have attended. Our waiting staff has been wonderful as well. Sitting beside the window was cold as it seemed like the heat was not turned on the first time we went so the second time we attended we sat one row up and had an excellent view of the races and were much more comfortable.

    Meh, it was okay. Service is very slow, food was okay. There are vegetarian and vegan options for appetizer and meal, (notice that they are not plural) no dessert option for vegans. Watching the horses was fun. The atmosphere was good. Large groups, know that your table will be awkward for some watching the races as your back is to the window. Family opinion, we came, we saw, we left and will not come back. Value is just not there for mediocre food and service.

    Pre pandemic we used to really enjoy the top of the fair. It was expensive but worth it for the buffet and racing. Now food is ok but very pricey for what you get. Entrees should include bread or salad at least. Felt somewhat overlooked as we aren't big drinkers and didn't order alcohol.
