“Not as nice as I though it would be”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

The building is very dated and very dirty. The staff is not organized and the place smells like smoke a lot!

“Noisy, grungy gambling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

I was disappointed. I had looked forward to watching horses racing. Instead it was noisy, old grungy booths, smoke filled and the glass was dirty so that it was difficult to see the race. I don't recommend it unless you are really into the gambling.

“Fun night out.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

The 'downs' is a fun place to watch the trotters and place a wager. Sit upstairs for a few $ and enjoy the view.

“Northville is a joke.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

I have lived in many metro Detroit cities and this is the most absurd place I've been yet. It's a complete inbred city full of hillbillies trying to act rich. Drunk neighbors that bully everyone on the street by parking where they are not supposed to, calling you names, dwelling on their porch(es), bonfires in their front yard, parties until all hours of the night...it's a bit much for as costly as this place is to live.

Further, every place and I mean EVERY place in this town overcharges you for crappy service and product/food. The "art gallery" is a COMPLETE joke as well as their town festivals, farmers markets, and town theater.

Do yourself a favor and don't visit this city. It's NOT worth your precious money. Seriously, folks, I'm not just someone with a beef or complaint. This city doesn't deserve anything except to crumble.
