We visited here last Saturday for the brunch buffet. The buffet items were hot and fresh, with plenty of things to choose from. The cost was $14.95 and worth it. The only thing I didn't like was the fact the kids, regardless of age, are charged the same price as adults. So I paid 14.95 for my seven year old... More

I wasn't expecting much for a track restaurant, but wow were my expectations exceeded! The buffet here is delicious, evening or the matinee. I prefer the matinee because they have a dessert or two in the buffet. I love the soups here too: the New England clam chowder is awesome! Try to get a buffet that offers the Maryland crab... More

Great spot with good food. Definitely a step above the typical buffet fare. The Blue Cheese mashed potatoes were excellent, and the prime rib, chicken and crab legs were great as well. Decor and ambiance is better than expected. Overall a wonderful time.

Nice night out. Not expensive. It's open area is not very convenient for food or drinks. They could be more people friendly. It really lacks in quality. The inside Saturday night dinner special is very good and has a lot to offer. Very good food and service.

The buffet on Friday and Saturday evenings is outstanding. Home made soups, salad bar, cold table, steamed crab legs, carved prime rib, fish, meat, pork.....wow. Watch the greyhound racing, or just come for the buffet. It's been a staple for us every Saturday evening for the past 5 years.

One of my favorite Buffets. If you like quality food this is your place! Crab legs, filet mignon, too many foods to name. Dessert is not included but never have room for dessert anyway! This is an adult only buffet so I could not take my kids, so it's perfect for a date night.

Some of the food dishes were tasty but there was so much food mixed between the dishes from people being careless or using the same utensils for multiple foods. A friend with a scallop allergy didn't go near the scallops but ended up with an allergic reaction. The best part of the buffet was the freshly made waffle with strawberries... More

I have gone there a couple times now and really enjoy the buffet. The food is well prepared and though some items are the staples,prime rib,and crab legs other items are often switched out to mix it up
