    Food was excellent quality. Service was poor. Our neighboring table had an excellent and attentive server. We had to ask him on 3 different occasions if he could locate our server. It took over 20 minutes to be served our salad wedge. There were only 3 occupied tables on our level. We had to ask our server where our salad was. Our crab legs were room temperature. There was no flow to our dinner. The service was completely disappointing.

    This is the second time I have eaten here and the food is delicious, well served and the ambience tremendous. The steak is very good--far above that of most purported steak houses. The creamed corn was so good I want to pick up the bowl and eat out of it. Creme brulee dessert also outstanding.

    A very good overall experience. Josh was our waiter. Very knowledgeable and professional. Food was very good and cooked to our liking. The only downfall was the red sauce for onion rings. Very funky. Like the atmosphere being able to watch the races and enjoy a good meal.

    The food was tremendous. I had the best sea bass of my life. The drinks were good though a bit slow in coming. The wine list was small but adequate. The drawback was that since the restaurant is situated overlooking the track it was extremely loud. Immediately to our left and elevated about two feet were guys chewing on (unlit) cigars with their race forms spread all over the place. I will likely go back but only when I know for certain the horses aren't running.

    The service was terribly slow, and there were only five other tables in the restaurant. The food was a bit underwhelming as well. They just seem to be lacking some basics when it domes to operations and people.

    I have dined at the Homestretch many times & amazed at the friendliness & attention given to detail & service. Although the location is probably not the best for elegant dining they have done a remarkable job of “fitting” it in. During race season you have a perfect view of the track. The service is faultless as they all truly work well as a team. Mike, Josh & the blonde lady, who has a remarkable memory for detail. They have all managed to a balance of professionalism with personalizing the dining experience to make it memorable. The food is by far the best in the area. Come with an appetite and save room for desserts. Can’t leave out the Chefs as they do a phenomenal job of preparing the food to perfection.

    Always enjoy dining here. This should be the number "1" reason you come to Anderson, IN. The food is always outstanding. Steaks are great and always prepared right. Service is outstanding even when it's slow because everyone goes to the buffet. The staff always makes you feel welcomed! I wish others would consider this choice rather than using their "points" on something else.

    Our bill was $80. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. We ordered salads, chicken, shrimp cocktail. The service was slow. We were there for the Kathy Griffith show which meant we couldn't linger in the restaurant because they needed the table & chairs. The menu is very limited, very few options. I prefer the Naked Chopsticks which is also located within this facility.

    There aren't many high end restaurants in Anderson, IN. We choose the casino. The restaurant is surrounded by betting booths so there is little privacy. The food was acceptable however the family style sides were very small. The steaks were done perfectly. We had a nice bottle of wine but the server did not check back to re-pour during the dinner. It would have been nicer I think to see the horses running but it was early in season. Price was a bit high for the size of the meal.

    Filet mignon was excellent for both of us dining there. Very subdued, almost eerie ambience in hugely open area. Three or four on staff who took care of us acted like they wished they were somewhere else entirely, except one blonde lady who peppered our salads, who seemed very nice and welcoming. Cost was a little high, but I knew that going in. Wish all highs and lows considered, I'd rate it slightly above average.

    The server would walk by our table and not look to see if we wanted some service, like he was absorbed in some other business. it took some time to his attention for the check. he should be more attentive to his table guests. I told my wife he was busy, but he needs to be more alert and responsive to table guests. good servers are always watching each table they serve. I still left a good tip.

    Arthur
    Dined on 10/25/2013
    Even though it's a 45 minute drive, we come to this restaurant frequently because the food is fantastic! Our favorites are their Sea Bass, the filet mignon and their soup of the day (whatever it is, it's always wonderful). The only downside is the service is sometimes spotty - they don't stay on top of the water and drink refills. Last time, they had violinist that played when the horses weren't racing. Lovely touch! I would recommend Homestretch steakhouse to my family and friends.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/21/2013
    Often you don't expect good food at a racetrack, so although this was the high end restaurant, I wasn't expecting much. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. The steak (I had the ribeye) was a nice size, tastily seasoned, and done to the right temperature. The sides we had were also delicious (asparagus, potatoes au gratin). I liked the fact that they had 375 ml bottle choices--a whole bottle would have been too much for my husband and myself. We had the Clos du Val Cab, which was delicious. Service was very gracious, discreet and cordial.

    It's a racetrack/casino...how can you expect a lovely/romantic/quiet anniversary dinner to be possible. The crab cakes weren't bad. I'm a big eater but I could only eat less than half the steak which somehow was way too dry to enjoy, no juice and no sauce avail. While the mashed potatoes looked pretty the fact is cold mashed.potatoes are horrible. Mac and cheese...how can you screw that up? Easy, throw a cup of elbow mac.in a bowl with some kind of runny soup/fluid and sprinkle cheese on top. Thankfully the bread was hot (the only thing hot we received) and the butter was soft so I asked for and received a second helping. Not being a wine drinker I ordered a beer with my meal, a long neck with a $100.+ meal...no mug or glass offered.

    This was our first time to the home stretch steak house. We had the Lobster Tail, the best by far. We will be going back again to try the steaks. Our server did a wonderful job. I would recommend fine dinning at Hosier Park and Casino. Book your reservation on line. Confirmation of our reservation was immediate. You have a full view of the race track, and you overlook the entire track, you have the option of placing a bet in the dining room.

    We chose to eat there before a concert. They attempted to manage the sold out crowd by offering a limited menu. They just are not a class act. My salad never did arrive. The table next to us finally just left after waiting an hour for their salads. Our server was not with it. She often just stared into space. Very disappointing evening.

    my second time at HP steakhouse. Food was great! 1st time, same assigned server but table was in traffic line and 2 other servers made the difference - filling drinks, taking empty plates away, etc. only saw assigned server 3 times all evening. Second visit was a less traveled area and no extra help from other servers. From no napkins, no bread till main course when another server delivered saying 'more bread you asked for ' when we said our first bread, he looked a little surprised. the manager got our napkins. when we did say something to our server the response was... I'm sorry. three times during the meal. I might come back but I will ask for another server. Great setting with the races right there.. great food, poor service.

    My first visit to Homestretch Steakhouse at Hoosier Park Racing and Casino was for a girls' birthday reunion dinner. It was great fun! The food was superb, the table location was great (on the finish line!), and the ambience was delightful. It was a destination place with lots of activity options but quiet enough for conversation.
