Diner Reviews
  • "Great for the horse racing.....however the dining experience needs some work."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Buffet was ok. (Lamb was overcooked, pasta was overcooked, potatoes were overcooked, garlic bread was very dry - Pork ribs were delicious and tender, salads were mostly good, and dessert was awesome.) Service was pretty slow (Our waiter was new.) But, we mostly went to watch the races. Our group had a fun night and we'd definitely do it again. Will probably try the ala carte menu next time."

  • "We went for a family birthday night- and the races themselves were wonderful. However, the buffet food was cold, bland, and without much variety. I wish there were more options and that the food was better cooked. It took our server forever to come with out drink orders and dessert, and we couldn't even find him to get chance from out bill- we had to leave it with the bar and get change from them. Highly overpriced for poor service and food."

  • "We used to enjoy an outing at the track and staying at Colours, however since they cancelled their menu service and have moved to buffet, there buffet is something to be desire for. There were no options for vegetarians other than salad and some mushy vegetables."

  • "Spent the day at the track with the family. Had a good time watching the horses run and tried to cash in on some bets. Didn't go over too well"

  • "I had to give my reservation to my in laws since another occasion came up. Their view of the the buffet was very good. with the horse races, it was a great evening. enjoyed the beef inside Yorkshire pudding. missed the prime rib. guess it is only in the evening supper."

  • "We will come back. Very quiet-easy going evening of horese racing entertainment."

  • "We were very surprised at the overall service provided. Setting was terrific. The food was excellent value. The overall atmosphere was extremely pleasant. We highly recommend Northlands for an evening out, whether you are a race fan or not."

  • "When i Booked I asked to be close to the buffet as 2 of our party have artificial knees. They put us in D-2 which is about as far from the buffet and betting services as you can get and by the end of the evening we could hardly walk. Do they not look at requests because there were vacant tables in rows A,B, and C closer to the center. The buffet was mediocre as was the service. When you could order off the menu the food was superior and the servers were more on the ball. This is definitely a step back. The races are still entertaining."

  • "changes to Colours are not positive, the food, service, atmosphere, have all deteriorated."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Compared to our visit last year, their buffet seriously declined in selection and quality. There was limited choice and the pesto chicken was overcooked. The Caesar salad was swimming in dressing. They ran out of beef on the carvery early into dinner. You had to get the bread and dessert from your server if you could find her. Our service was very lacking and I had to look for her. No cheese or fruit at all. The best was the bread and the fruit pie. Definitely not worth the $25 plate price."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Buffet at $24.95 was the only choice and not a good one. Beef, Chicken, Cannelloni, Meatloaf all dry. Pork undercooked, Salad bar and dessert were good."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Was very disappointed in the food would rather menu only good thing on the buffet was the prime rib"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Our server rarely came to our table but other servers were very helpful. The food was great, the races were exciting and we enjoyed ourselves very much. We will eagerly go back."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The server was great, very friendly and accommodating for a group with some specific needs. The food was great, and so much variety, you sit and eat all day while watching the race. Everything is included and very economical considering the environment and the quality. We will be going back for sure."

  • "We had the buffet there on Friday evening. The quality of the food was very good but unfortunately the food was cold to warm and the only hot item was the soup. Had a good selection but unfortunatly not hot."

  • "We were celebrating a special occasion and had been to Colours before and enjoyed it. This evening was a DISASTER! There was no Buffet on this night and we ordered from a menu, we had to ask for the menu and were given one to share between 4 people, our meal then took one and a half hours to arrive. All we ordered were two fish and chip and two sandwiches . After our meals were finished, two more orders of fish and chips arrived ,which we sent back. Then another full order of sandwiches and fish and chips arrived, again sent back! What a gong show and what a waste of food. Won't be back and can see why Northlands always has it's hand out for funds, Total Gong Show."

  • "The check in was good, food was great, view was awesome. The service was slow. We waited a minimum of 20 minutes to get our drink order. We were unaware it was a buffet, and after waiting awhile for menus, we finally caught our servers attention and found out. I believe our server came back to check on us once during dinner. We were also not told that dessert was included with the buffet. As I said the food was great, and overall we would be willing to give it another try at some point."

  • "I found the food good but limited for the price of $24.95"

  • "Colours offers a fabulous view of the race track, its only redeeming feature. It was once a decent place for standard fare but has deteriorated from o.k. to frankenfood. I booked for July 1st, which is a great day to go to the horse races. The first unpleasant surprise was the sign that said you MUST purchase the buffet at $25 or if you don't a $20 charge is still applied. Except for the salads, the buffet food was inedible unless you have lost your sense of smell (and sight). In terms of horror factor, the dense grey meat loaf stood out. The servers stayed huddled around their stations, so good luck getting their attention, and we asked to see the manager but got a no-show. Looks like Colours has faded to a whiter shade of pale."

  • "Waiter was way too busy to do a good job. There were a lot of table cleaners but not enough senior staff"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food was tasty enough but there wasn't very much selection. For a $25 buffet I would have expected more choices. The prime rib was very good, but there wasn't much else to choose from. The desserts were great! Drink service was a bit slow, but it seemed that the waitress had a lot of tables to deal with rather than she was just being lazy or didn't know what she was doing. She was very apologetic so that made things better. All in all, I would return to the racetrack for a special event but would hope for more options on the buffet."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Service was lousy, took forever to get drinks. Had to walk up to the bar to get drinks numerous times. Would ask waitress's for items and they would never come"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The only thing Colours restaurant has going for it is its location to the race track. The food was awful. I had fish and chips -- the fish was right out of a freezer box and deep fried to the point that the fish was dried out. My husband had their steak sandwich -- the meat was small, over cooked and dry and too chewy. Although the service was attentive, our girl was new. She didn't know how to open a bottle of wine with a corkscrew. She gave us the wrong bill and had to find the right one. She had no answers to our questions. Don't know what you do when you come to the track, because you get this same bad food in the bar area as well - without the view of the track. Maybe you have to bring a lunch with you."

  • "We had an absolutely fabulous time. The food was great, the staff beyond friendly and helpful. I had taken my sweetie out for his birthday and everything was perfect. The evening was fun. we loved the food, the drinks were good, price was perfect. WE WILL BE BACK"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Great experience with two grand-children. Our table location was perfect. Our waiter was very friendly and observant to our needs. Food was okay. In the past the food was outstanding."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The dining room was comfortable and kid friendly. The buffet was good, not a lot of different selections, my 6 year old only liked the sausage and nothing else, they never refilled the fruit platter so if you wanted certain fruit then you had to be there early. The dessert was good as my daughter had 3 pieces of chocalate cake. We loved watching the horse races while we were eating and the waitress was friendly. We were allowed to leave and attend the barn tour while having our table saved for us."

  • "we were in F1 unfortunately the service has gone away down hill since changing from menu to buffet not enough for children on buffet I finally had to go to DEENE bar manager to get us service and this is not the first time I do not begrudge the cost but service stinks."

  • "Had a great evening! Our niece and nephew were done from Grande Praire and it was a fun experience for them. They loved the food and the whole atmosphere. Thank for giving us a table near the top and close to the betting machines as I had requested. The server was excellent- but unfortunately I have forgotten her name."

  • "The food was terrible, the beef lasagna had no beef, there was no dessert, the chicken oscar was tough and overcooked."

  • "Our waiter left early & we were left with no service."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "However everything else went downhill from there...........what was on line for the menu was not what was served. Salads were ok, everything else was downhill, tasteless (pasta), overcooked/rubbery (fish). The best part of the night was the chocolate cake. Service was erratic and slow. Apparently the young man who was supposed to be serving our table did not come over to our table for almost 90 minutes. The young lady that took over our table was wonderful, warm, accomodating and truly efficient, albeit overworked/stressed with having to take on additional tables. I love the races but next time will go grab a hotdog instead of the buffet."

  • "The buffet was very limited and did not provide good value for the money. Service was slow and not very good. I would not go back."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Everyone in our group enjoyed the buffet. I still like the idea of a menu. Our server was a sweet young man - but, our service was very poor, slow beyond words, i.e. two drinks were ordered at the same time (water and pop), the water was delivered after a long wait - it took an evern longer time to get the pop - and only after we flagged someone down. Waiting for our bill was a very long frustrating experience. For those reasons I have made one recommendation above."

  • "We have been going to Colours for years and really enjoyed being able to order off their menu. Now they only have the buffet. When we went a few weeks ago for Sunday Brunch it was extremely plain and disappointing-the meat was a dry pork roast. This time we went on Weds evening and the food was again plain but a bit better the meat dish was turkey and they only had white meat (when I went up at least). For over $25 for a buffet, I expect really good food. This is definitely not the case, the food is edible. At one point, I saw one of the chefs pick something out of the salad bar with her ungloved hand and put it in her mouth. I do enjoy the wine and drink list, it is quite varied."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The service was very poor, waited more than 30 minutes to take drink orders. Should of doubled up on the drinks didn't see waitress for more than an hour. Potatoe salad the potatoes were raw, the steamed vegetables the turnip were raw. Roast beef was tough and chicken was very dry. End of evening no bill. Tried to hunt down waitress couldn't find her or the manager to pay bill and file service complaint. Left money with bartender. Not worth the $24.95 for the buffet! Not a very enjoyable evening! "

  • "I have been to colours twice. By far it's the worst service in town. It's too bad because I really enjoy bringing friends but it's close to embarrassing how bad the service is. I would not bring clients to your restaurant. "
