- Wow- dinner & horse racing!OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 6/30/2014We had a wonderful time with friends over the great dinner and watching the horse races. The table TV monitor's helped when the horses were out of view. It was a very fun evening with a great meal.I would recommend this to a friend.

- wrong tablebirdieDined on 9/26/2013Love this place...always have a good time....this was the first time I had made a reservation.....I did so online...the table they showed on the internet was not the table we had reserved.. Wanted one so we could see the racing, Asked the hostess, said she had never seen what was on the internet, but it was the table that was reserved and we could not move to a different one. For future reservations I will be talking to someone in person....Thank YouSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Fun with Friends at the RaceswmnosDined on 8/28/2013We did not get the tables we had asked for. At first we were disappointed but then realized they were just as good for viewing the races. The food was very, very good and the wait staff friendly and observant to our needs. All in all, it was a wonderful night of entertainment.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- SittingOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/27/2013There were MANY empty tables, and 15 mins. after we were seating they sat a party with a BABY and a TOOTLE, right next to us. I think if there were 8 other tables, WHY. The baby cried and the TOOTLE scream at the horses. If fact they should have NOT be able to be seated in that restaurant.. I was glad when they left to go outside to see the horse, they should have done that to begin with.Special Features:
- Our waitress was fantastic.butchDined on 8/18/2013Our waitress was fantastic. It was her last day of work before returning to college and she treated us like we were the king and queen of England!Special Features:
- Horses & FoodBillDined on 8/11/2013Great place to watch the horses and enjoy good food. We ate in the dining room and the prime rib buffet. The buffet was very good.Special Features:
- Best Way To Watch Horse RacingRichard127Dined on 8/11/2013This is the best place I know of in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio to watch the horse races, and they are our favorites, the thoroughbreds. They have great food at a reasonable price, with excellent beer on tap, and any mixed drink you could want. There is easy access to betting windows and rest rooms. Excellent service and friendly workers. The Club House is awesome.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Racetrack DinningOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 7/31/2013This restaurant overlooks the race track at Presque Isle Downs so you can watch the races while having dinner. The food is well prepared and inexpensive. $20 for a 8oz. Filet with potato and vegetable; $15 for a 10 oz. Strip Steak; all cooked to order. These are not steak house quality items but are of very good quality and an excellent value. The Rack of Ribs is also a good buy at $20, served with a sweet and mildly spicy sauce. Great sandwiches and appitizers are also available. Same menu lunch or dinner. The staff is well trained and the service is flawless.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely dinnerSrG42Dined on 7/25/2013We went as first timers and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and even ran into friends. Our server and the other servers in our area were very personable and fun. We would definitely go again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fun SpotFunforallDined on 7/18/2013The restaurant along with the racing cards make this a great night out with a group or just my wife and I. The food and refreshments are always tasteful and inexpensive. A great 3 to 4 hour fun spot.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I had 5:15 reservation andOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/18/2013I had 5:15 reservation and I told there was a private party till 6:15 and I couldn't be seated till then. I was told there was a mistake but I would just have to wait, and the hostess said I would have to fine something else to do till 6:15. I walked around the Casino and gambled for 10 minutes, when the hostess tracked me down on the floor, and said she rechecked and I could be seated earlier. The quality of the food has gone down. The Clubhouse food used to be the best, both of our dinners were over cooked. The restaurant was almost empty I can understand over cooked food. Our waitress never checked on us, I had to wave her down to get a second drink.
- Good food and service. AlthoughjodiDined on 7/14/2013Good food and service. Although I made my reservation through your site and the restaurant had no information about it. We were seated timely in spite of them not expecting us.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- My reservation wasn't receivedLuckyDined on 7/8/2013When I arrived I was told I didn't have a reservation. Luckily I still had my confirmation on my phone. Luckily they weren't busy and I got a great table to watch the horse races.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- It was nice to be able todebbieDined on 6/10/2013It was nice to be able to watch the racing without being rushed . The food choice was fairly good and came out nice and hot.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and fun!CasinogalDined on 6/10/2013Enjoyed a nice delicious dinner, with a super track view ! Quiet, yet fun evening -got to some great races without getting wet!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- horrible experiencejoanDined on 5/28/2013Worst dinner ever. Food was fair at best. Service awful, server brought appetizer and one minute later the dinner salads and dinner,how the food was cooked that fast i do not know. No drink refills or any communication. Avoid this place,,
- Oldie and Goodiefood4meDined on 5/22/2013I have tried almost everything on the menu and the only dish that wasn't A+ was the pulled pork, rather dry and not much flavor. The wait staff is very helpful and extremely pleasant. I recommend this restaurant to any one who goes to the casino.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First TimedarkellerDined on 5/19/2013Tthis was our first time at the Club House, or at Presque Isle. First, reservations were made in advance easily, and since we decided to dine earlier than expected, there was no problem. I thought the food was very good, and the prices reasonable. I didn't get a real connection with our waitress (needs to be friendlier) but the service was average, which is OK with me. I would probably have liked to have seating that overlooked the racetrack, as that was one of the reasons we were there for. I have no doubt that had I requested it, I would have been moved. You want to ask your diners when they come in. Some want to watch, others don't. I would consider it a decent experience, and with a little effort could be a great experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- busy floorszyqDined on 5/12/2013The food and service was great, but the congestion at the wagering windows was horrible. That really needs to be changed!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- A Great Night Out, All Year Long!OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/27/2011Two thumbs up: good food, something for every taste and appetite. Great service and a fun exciting ambience with the horse racing. The new manager is a real keeper. The difference in the staff attitude is palpable. More relaxed, friendly and client-centered.:) This was a girls' night out and multiple birthdays celebration, and the last week of live racing. Brett was our server, and the perfect combination of professional and personal.So much fun, but still all about service. The place was always fun, because you can still watch and bet on the races broadcating live all year. With this new "attitude", we plan to get there often this winter! We're definitely thinking about it for our office Christmas party!Special Features:
