Its fun to eat and bet on horses. Food/drinks are good, but a little pricey for what get. They need to expand their dinner menu a little or have more nightly specials. Overall its a good dining experience.

dining with the daily double.
For track lovers who want a more relaxed but exciting way to dine try this track overlook.while the menu is somewhat limited there is variety. The portions were substantial and was pretty good too. The best was the flat bread appetizer. The desserts were typical large clunky combinations that required no talent to make. Its worth a shot just dont expect flair with the fillies you are handicapping.our waitress was attentive and helpful. She was a pleasure to talk with.

Loved the Mothers' Day dining experience. The food exceeded my expectations. Thank you for contributing to an enjoyable day!

Bright cheerful place.
Penn national is surprisingly relaxed place, where the horse races can be enjoyed like a feel good family movie instead of a seedy place for gamblers. The Mountain View is an nice vista to view it all. The food is good pub food, a bit pricey, but the service is great. They also reind you that the table is yours to enjoy as long as needed without a push for turnover.

Great for out of town guests
Mountainview is a great place to take out of town guests. The food and service is always wonderful. You don't even have to leave your table to bet on the races. Very nice ambiance and relaxing.

Great night at the races!
As a frequent visitor to the Skybox restaurant, we decided to treat the $500,000 Penn Mile with a classy dinner twist. This is the first time most of us had eaten at the Mountainview Terrace since the Casino had been built, but we all agreed that it was just as good, if not better, since then. Everything was excellent, the food, the service, the atmosphere. It truly lived up to everyone's expectations for the evening!

Always a fun time. Betting right from our table. Very helpful courteous staff.

Great place to bring a visitor
We like to treat our visitors to Penn National for a fun experience in an enjoyable atmosphere. The Mountain View has great food, a friendly and helpful staff, and the excitement of seeing your horse cross the finish line.

The food was very good as was the service. It was fun to be able to enjoy both a delicious meal and the entertainment the horse races provided.

Great Way to Enjoy Night of Racing
Not particularly recommended if you are not there to watch the horse racing. If you want a quiet romantic evening this is not the place to go. For those of us that were there to enjoy an evening of thoroughbred racing, the food was very good at a very fair price considering you also get a great seat to view the races. The wait staff was attentive and professional. The menu offering is varied and will have something for just about everybody.

Great night at the races
The restaurant is very nice and the food was good with choices from entrees to pub grub - our food took a took long time to come out this time, however a discount was given as an apology - we did not ask for it they just adjusted our bill and we were appreciative. Last time there I had the salmon and it was quite good. This time a burger and it was excellent. It was quite crowded and I recommend reservations for a Saturday evening - we had them and walked right in on time and were seated right away. It is a fun night at the races.

Family Fun Night
When looking for great food and entertainment that is a reasonable distance from home, consider Mountain view and Penn National racetrack, I always have a good time trying to pick the race winners,
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lots of fun
I was very surprised with the quality and quantity of the dinners. The prime rib was excellent and the crab cakes were great just as good as on the eastern shore. If we had one criticism the should have been betting machines at each table, there were on two in near proximity to our table, and they became backed up. I found myself walking to the entrance of the restaurant to place bets.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful time catching up with old friends while watching the races from the Montain View Terrace. The food was very good, while reasonably priced. The service was outstanding. Can't wait to go back!

We had a wonderful time dining and betting on the ponies.

Mountainview @ PNRC
First time there, went to celebrate a birthday and take in some horse racing. We had a table against the window with our own private tv monitor. The room is very large , but well divided so it feels small. The quality of the food was excellent and the speed of service was too good - it seemed as soon as the server took our order the food was at the table , literally . Service was so fast we out in less than 5 races, even though they made it evident we could stay all night if we wanted .
WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK !

I would highly recommend this restaurant. Our experience could not have been better,. The food and service was excellent.

full of excitement with the horse races, a great time in all!!

Our dining experience
We had 6 people at our table .The food was good although a little pricey.Service could have been a little faster.The wine my wife had was very poor quality, very disappointing.Overall a nice experience and we will come back.

Excellent Horse Racing Dining
The view is fantastic, the horse racing exciting and the food was great. I can't say enough other than I will make sure to return soon.

Excellent dining selections with a great view of the track. Terrific service. So much better than Charlestown.

SWEET POTATO FRIES
We ate at this restaurant to watch the horse racing. The food was surprisingly good. There is not a lot on the menu but, something for everyone. I highly recommend the sweet potato fries, they were the best we ever had. The prices were reasonable considering we were at a casino. Service was very good. The waitress allowed us to take our time and enjoy the evening. We will definitely return.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a fun night
We love coming to the Mountainview Restaurant. What a fun time--you have the casino and the Penn National track with many choices of restaurants. Mountainview is so relaxing and the service/food is always wonderful. Great way to spend and evening or take guests to.

My husband and I wanted to go to the horse traces at Hollywood Casino. We saw Mountainview recommended on open table. The food was good and the service was great. It was a very enjoyable evening. We plan on returning with a group of friends
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Maine lobster was outstanding for a great price. Otherwise, I'm usually bored by the menu there.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife and I have been there a few times before. We just enjoy the atmosphere and professionalism that all have provided. We will attend again.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome place to dine! Great view of the Lebanon Valley north mountains and perfect view of the track when betting on the ponies!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Would be NICE to KNOW that the MAX. seating at a Table is ONLY 6 prior to arriving

Service was great! We had
Service was great! We had a visitor from Germany with us and he loved it.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had never experienced the Mountain View Restaurant and we are relative novices when it comes to betting the ponies. The food/service experience was very nice however doing that AND having the races right in front of us was very entertaining. My wife especially enjoyed the experience, probably as a result of her picking winners in 7 of 9 races! We will be back and we will bring others to enjoy the experience
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great place to have a 100th birthday party for my mother. The size of our party was 25 and we were seated 6 per table so were able to visit during the meal. But we were in a secluded enough area that it was comfortable to move from table to table... and there was an area near by that the kids could sreatch their legs. The staff was excellent and attentive. Food was very good and served nice and hot. And a good side light was being able to watch the horse races - kept both adults and kids entertained.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mt. View is an excellent place for dinner and to view the races---Our server, Antonia, was very efficient and friendly---Again food was great and service was just as great
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best experience there in years. Your staff was friendly, helpful, accommodating, and professional - from the hostess desk through to the wait staff, Food was better than usual. Keep up the good work.!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food and atmosphere
The food was delicious and our group had a blast! Reservations were easy to make with no hassle upon arrival. It was nice to be as close to the racetrack as possible. Our server was very blah with no energy or enthusiasm to serve us or offer suggestions. She was in a hurry to clear off our table but not in a hurry to check on us throughout the evening.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We go to Mt View a couple times a year. Great meals, Great entertainment, Great service, and friendly people.
I want to give a special thank you to Owen, our server for taking such good care of us.
My wife and I really enjoyed the evening.

Dining experience with horse racing
For a special occasion this experience was wonderful. The tables were all in excellent location to view the track and the food was great.The service was really great and each server met us at the door and serviced our needs continuously.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have eaten there several times. Quality and selection of food is just okay.

This is at Hollywood Casino
This is at Hollywood Casino and it so awesome to be able to watch and bet on the horse races right at your table. The food is always very good from sandwiches to meals. We love it there - lots of fun. And always great service!!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
dinner and racing
Waitress/server was Nichole. Very friendly and enjoyable atmosphere with great service. table was further out than were we normally seat, however it was comfortable and warm. (by the front window) A long walk to the ticket window and a long walk to the bar area for Nichole. We told her to bring 2 drinks at a time to save her the long walk.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
It is a great place to catch
It is a great place to catch up with friends and bet on the ponies. Good food and service, always a helpful staff. We also like it because we can spend hours and not be rushed out the door, so we can entertain friends for hours
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food. Excellent Service. please consider expanding the menu.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM

Mountain View at Penn National Race
The experience at Mountain View is always energetic overlooking the Penn National horse track, actually the only time it is open is when they are racing. The view of the surrounding countryside only adds to the view of the track. The food has always been good, not an extensive menu but still plenty to chose from. The service is excellent - they go overboard in trying to accommodate your requests. We will certainly return.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dining while horse racing

Plan to do again.

11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Picked this place for a birthday dinner. Being able to watch live horse racing during dinner was pretty cool. We went in early December and the view was nice but is probably better in the summer months when it stays light out longer and you can see the mountain view in the background. Food was very good and dinner was not rushed at all. Overall, i would go back again if I was in the area.

We have been wanting to try
We have been wanting to try this restaurant, and so we decided to do it for a birthday celebration. We enjoy the horse racing and liked sitting at the window to watch the races. The food was wonderful.
