“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

First I got to say that the Harness racing is a must for everyone, you can go watch them practice most mornings. But the best thing is the TRACK RESTAURANT!!!!!!!! the food, service, and just the hustle and bustle is fabulous at this place! We take everyone there that comes to visit and they are blown away by the Track Restaurant! They have the best wait staff ever and the owners all always present. In fact one of them in the dishwasher. This building has a big history. The kitchen is the middle of the place and that is because when it was built desegregation was still in full force and the black had their own entrance from the whites, CRAZY! If you go make sure you go in the second eating area (u have to walk through the kitchen to get there) and see the wonderful original artwork in this side of the place!

“Just wonderful place, must see for race horse lovers !”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

Pinehurst historic harness training center is a winter and spring training center for high priced young standardbred yearlings in there quest to become future racing stars , see them train on a half mile clay and sand surface or on a separate mile track. They train Monday to Saturday from 6 am to 12 noon. Watch for the spring matinee day to see the "coming out party"of some of these young horses, great tailgate party also, it's usually on the first Sunday in April. At any other time make sure you have breakfast at the old track kitchen and try their famous blueberry pancakes after seeing the horses train.

My wife is a huge horse lover and we love stopping by the Harness Track for their special events or just the morning cart warm ups. It has a fun, peaceful atmosphere.

I have to agree with John and his comments on the restaurant, a great place to grab some good food at great prices. As Arnold would say, "I'll be back".

“Breakfast from the Past”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Small, white, concrete, noisy to loud. An exceptional piece of Americana right here in Pinehurst. If you don't eat breakfast at the track, you don't know what real breakfast can be - eggs your way, pancakes, sausage, scrapple, you name it - all with race track names. Great, great place for breakfast.
