    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    The atmosphere is great. Semi fine dining with a nice view of the track. The buffet is kinda skimpy. They call it a prime rib and seafood buffet. Not much seafood. Shrimp, fried clam strips, and mussels were about the extent of it except some pasta with crab in it. Besides the meats you only had about 5 selections for sides and the fixings for the salads weren't much. They do however have a large dessert bar. This place is great but I would definitely order from the a la carte menu.

    Here's my opinion about the SkylineTerrace. It is a nice place to go if you want to watch the horses race in a warm atmosphere. The service was great but i was highly disappointed with the food. For the price and location i expected better quality of food and more of a selection. Ryan's and Golden Corral have better food quality and selection. They had nothing for your salad. The pulled pork and saurecrout was dry. It was supposed to b a seafood buffet as well and they only had steamed shrimp, small clams and mussles and dry breaded catfish. Oh and salmon cakes. The only thing i found enjoyable was the bbq ribs, and the sweet potatoes. The dessert table was plain ordinary. The side dishes were cold. There wasn't even cheese for the brussel sprouts. Everything on that buffet was cheap and poorly made. i enjoyed the dining experience and the racetrack, just not the food. Next tim i will eat elsewhere before going to the races.

    We have attended the races at Charlestown & had the buffet many times. We were with a couple that had been one other time. We all agreed that the quality of food HAS REALLY SLIPPED. We will probably go back to the SKYBOX as the food there was much better. Sorry

    Food quality has gone down since the days we attended Sun. brunch & races. Sat. nite a slice of prime rib was thin as a slice of bologna & tough as nails. Fried clams over-fried & cold. Cake desserts dry & tasteless. Only reason to return- to sit comfortably, eat while betting the ponies.

    Great time again at CTR and the Skyline Terrace! Once again the food was great, the staff and service were great, the racing action was great! Love going here for special occasions or just a night out for a good time and great food. The buffet is always kept up and has really good food. The staff is the best for service and being helpful. Never a bad experience.

    We pretty much make coming here to celebrate our Anniversary an annual event. This year everything was very nice. The roast beef was rather tough but other than thaqt, the food was perfectly acceptable. The service was outstanding as is always the case. All the staff are friendly and accomodating.

    The buffet was excellent with many items to choose from. The prime rib was just the way I like it and the creamy horse radish sauce topped it off nicely. The salad bar offered a lot of choices and the food was fresh. The wine list gave several good options and the pinot noir was fantastic! The service was excellent and the staff was friendly and made us feel welcome. Thank you for an enjoyable evening!

    We went for the prime rib and sea food buffet. We were a little let down on the sea food selection. The cod was dried out, and while the catfish was good, its not seafood. The salmon was only presented in cakes. The shrimp was only fried. Thus, it was a fried food affair for $30. The prime rib was good, but the rest of the meal was Mexican. Come on Hollywood, we could have had dinner for less and had more of a selection at Epic. We hope to have the selections we use to come for. Your chef needs to learn how to match up foods. He offered a terrible vegetable soup with dumplings. It was like bad raviolis. Broccoli and cheese was the other soup offered. That's overrated leftovers. It was a clam chowder night.

    Eating the Buffet and relaxing without rushing was great. Enjoy the horseracing along the way which makes it even more relaxing and enjoyable. I have been here many times but this was the first time that I have to say all the FOOD was excellent. Most of the time some of the food is hard like it's been sitting or we run out of things and the refills took too long.

    The price is a bit on the high side but the food is good and the view of the track is quite nice. Assuming you get a table on the edge of the row... Otherwise you will have to stand during the races. There are TVs at each table and many have the capability to make bets at your seat if you have an account. The food is above average on the buffet. Have not ordered off the menu yet. Nice variety of food, great salad bar and dessert. Soft serve ice cream as well. My only complaint is that sometimes the salad bar doesn't get replenished fast enough. I had to wait about 10 minutes on lettuce once.

    I have been attending the Skyline Terrace for years, mostly for the stakes races and have noticed the last few times the buffet price has steadily been increased. We arrived at 7PM but had to wait nearly 15 minutes for our server to respond to us, drinks were served in another 10 minutes. The food was not good, for the price I have had some hole in the wall Chinese buffets that were much better. Many items on the bar has seemed to be sitting for awhile and dried up. The vegetables on the salad bar were not fresh, the lettuce was the typical grocery store bag mix with some brown lettuce. Not really sure what is happening here, maybe trying to cut costs but for nearly $40.00 a person it was a shame, my wife made a comment as she was not plsd.

    Love coming here on the weekends for their buffet. You get to eat and watch the races ... and go into the casino and hit a some slots and return again. Yes, you can hold your table for the entire evening. This is not a eat and rush out restaurant. It's good food and a leisurely atmosphere. The servers are friendly and on top of their game consistently. We will return again.

    This restaurant is away from the noisy casino and over looks the Charles Town thoroughbred race track. Very beautiful setting overlooking the racetrack with the mountains in the background. We were warmly greeted and then immediately seated. Our waitress was prompt and friendly. Our meal was awesome. We got the Wednesday night special: filet mignon with crab legs. It was served hot and both were delicious. We had a wonderful evening and would highly recommend the Skyline Terrace.

    This is a very cool place to go. The roast beef was delicious (they had rare) as was the shrimp and the dessert. The salad bar was weak and the temperature was too warm. I'm not sure if the a/c was broken but it was noticeably warm. The betting is conveniently located in the dining room. It has a fantastic view of the track, the server was attentive and friendly. All in all a very good experience. Too bad about the air conditioning problem.

    Reservations are required. The view of the race track and the on table monitors are a fun way to pass the time. The buffet line was chaotic, with the expected traffic flow not clearly marked. There was a wide selection of salads, sides, and desserts, but the quality was hit and miss depending upon your selection. The service was great, and we were surprised by the 50% price cut for our 11 year old. We probably will return for a casual night out.
