I reserved the table on open table earlier in the day. When we got to the hostess station they informed us that they don’t do reservations at all and DO NOT use OPEN TABLE! Luckily They did have one table left which we had to wait 10 minutes to sit. So in the future if they don’t use Open Table you shouldn’t have them listed ! Food and service and value are very good!

The bar tenders Jason, Molly, Corina, Joe, and Stephany are wonderful
Waitresses- Wendy and Gina - great and very attentive
Host - Delvon- very personable, friendly and helpful !

Food is ok.
Very disappointed that items, seasoning and condiments have changed but does reflect the change in the menus.
No longer serve beer dip but nacho cheese with pretzels.
Very disappointed that asparagus is no longer offered with the Salmon meal.

Made reservation on open table and when we got there they said they don’t get reservations from open table - don’t know why it is listed on open table and allows you to make a reservation if they don’t integrate it into their reservation system.

Made reservations do my anniversary. Was sat behind a pole and could not see track or TVs. When we asked to move we were told no that was the only table available. We had people in front of us who did not make reservations get premium seating. When we asked to move again into one of the many tables that were open we were told no. Would not recommend and will not be back... the hostess was rude and not nice. Just who you want to be the face of your business... not

We've been coming here with friends since it opened. The food has seriously been going downhill. We are not people who normally complain, but the food has been terrible. Have even sent items back. So sad, because we enjoy the atmosphere. All of our friends agree :(

This was our third visit here this year, and each time the food and the overall experience has been very good. The food quality this year is definitely better than in past years, and the menu selections have been expanded which provides for more choices. Combine this with the top notch horse racing of Presque Isle Downs and you have an enjoyable evening out with friends or family. One nice touch would be rolls or bread with dinner, and hopefully they will consider this soon.

I would return because of the service. I requested a meatless appetizer, the kitchen staff came out with the plate to reassure me that the meal was meatless, even placing beans on the side since they had meat in them. Above and beyond!!

Great night celebrating daughters birthday! Food was great but best of all was our server! Don't recall his name but he was efficient, attentive and personable! There was a problem when first seated, some other people took our "requested" table (because their TV didn't work) and our waiter sat us at the table they were suppose to have with broken TV but then arranged a better table for us! This was not our waiters fault at all, just the entitled people!

The food and service was very good. The prices were very good for what you got. We were very disappointed with our seats. We have always been at the lower levels when we asked about seating for the horse races. We asked, and were told they had been booked since May. Although there were empty tables the entire time the races were going.

We really enjoyed Churchill's. It was our first time there and because we had a reservation we were seated immediately, had a great waitress and really enjoyed being able to see the track from our table. I would definitely go back again.

Wanting to dine during the horse races, we made an Open Table reservation four days in advance, making a request for a window seat. We then called the very next day to confirm that they received the request for a window table, and were told we were being put into a window table. We arrived on Sunday to find the we were three layers back from the racing window, while multiple window tables sat empty. Upon asking the hostess to be seated near the window, as per our request, we were not given a window table. She said if the tables were not taken in 15 minutes, she'd grant our request. The tables sat empty, yet she never moved us. And frankly, by that point, why bother moving all of our food and drinks? We were already irritated. The table we were given had a TV that didn't tune into the races. Maintenance was called and it couldn't be fixed, so we were moved to another table. The food is always fairly good, but service is almost always sub-par, and this evening was also sub-par. We had to remind the server numerous times that we had ordered another round of drinks. He'd blame it on the bar, but yet when he returned with our drinks, the condensation on the glasses indicated the drinks had been sitting for quite awhile. We'll be back, because the food is decent and if you want to see the races, you have no other options. However, go in with the reality that the service is going to be bad.

Extremely LONG wait! Sat for over an hour with no food and when the appetizer came out, it was cold! Hardly saw our waitress. The actual food was great, but hardly worth the wait or the experience. Very disappointing

I had made a reservation online but still waited about ten minutes for a hostess to place us at a table. Our server wasn't very personable and didn't supply good service. The restaurant was clean and the food was pretty good. The coffee was cold. Overall, I think we would have been better off just getting a hot dog from outside instead of the hassle of getting attitude from our waitress and waiting 25 minutes to get our orders taken. But the horse races were fun!

Unfortunately even after having a reservation the service was very poor

They took our drink order and only could bring a plastic cup of pop because the bar was out of glasses fir the beers?????
The food was ordered and we didn’t get served until closer to 7:45
Very disappointed with a casino restaurant. Usually they are too notch

The Bourbon And Brew clubhouse dining experience we had was a step better than in past years. The quality of the food has improved and this was a much needed change. This was our second visit this season and the quality of both visits was consistently good. My sirloin steak was tender, juicy, and cooked just right. It would be a nice improvement if bread or rolls could be provided with their full dinners, but that is presently is not the case.

Service was a bit spotty, but overall it was okay. As for the menu it's not bad, but a few more entrees would be a welcome addition. Prices range from very good on some items to a little over priced on others. When combined with the horse racing experience that is provided at Presque Isle Downs the combination of live racing and dinner in the clubhouse is a truly enjoyable night out. We'll be back for more as the racing season continues!

We had a reservation for 7 pm, we were seated at 7 pm, at 7:05 pm our server came over and took drink orders, our drinks were received, she took our food order and we never saw her again until almost 7:50 pm. The restaurant was understaffed. When she finally came back to our table after several attempts trying to get her attention, she asked if we wanted to order two drinks each so she didn't have to come back until the food arrived. The food arrived at 8 pm, someone other than our server brought it over, we ordered a pepperoni pizza and a two sandwiches with French fries. French fries were cold and the pizza crust was burnt. We will not be going back until you address your staffing issues, this isn't the first time but it will be the last. Highly disappointed for a Fathers Day outing.

Our waitress was never around and twice we had to get up to find her.
We have always had good service but not this Wednesday.
She was tipped accordingly.
The onion soup was perfect as well as the French dip.
