I have great fun with family or friends. Hard to bet a day at the track. From live racing to the Tiki bar always friendly and exciting.

The track is always exciting and fun. You can get up close to the horses, they are beautiful animals. The Tiki Bar is always busy and the music very enjoyable. It's a very old school feel when we visit the track. Always a great time.

This appears to be an older track and their logo "alive and kicking" reflects their determination to stay open. While many race tracks have had to resort to the addition of a casino to survive, Fort Erie stands alone and seems to be doing well....More
