    We didn't know this restaurant was in the horse racing area. We went on a night that did not have horse racing so it was pretty dead and it felt like we were eating in an empty warehouse. Would have been more lively on a racing night. But the food was good and the service was fast (maybe because it was empty though). Lots of TVs and games to play. We may go back on a racing night to really get a feel for the crowd and ambiance!

    Good Drinks, great value on buckets of beer. Food is on par for bar food (4 of 5) environment is extremely good for watching races and other sports. Tons of TVs. Crowd gets loud but it’s a party at the horse track to be expected, if that’s not your vibe maybe the track bar(s) aren’t for you. A- ; solid stop for some food and drinks . Recommend reservations

    I normally don’t write bad reviews. But! My salad was okay. Shrimp could have been warm. My husband’s burger was awful. He couldn’t finish it. So we just paid, tipped and left. The hostess was rude. But our server was very friendly and polite. I’ll stick with eating on the casino side.

    Food was tasty. Service was AMAZING! Kevin was great and will definitely be asking for his section when we return. During live racing, I hope that you all will turn on some of the TVs to the track - and work on the broadcasts freezing up. Other than that, we had a wonderful time!

    This was for my grandson’s birthday. We had five 14 year olds and 4 adults. This was a Sunday afternoon. Everyone had a great time doing the sports virtual simulator. The boys tried golf, football, soccer and baseball. Then went back to golf. None of them have played actual golf before so I was surprised that it was their favorite. We chose to wait until after the simulator time to order food. Our server brought drinks as soon as we arrived and constantly checked on us. We ordered pizza and it didn’t take long to get them. We brought in a cake. It was a fun place and will be back.

    I’ve been twice now, both times on Fridays to sing karaoke. We love I love the lettuce wraps.  This time was for my birthday.  We also have the boiled shrimp.  I wish you would offer, boiled potatoes, corn, and mushrooms, though and make it a meal.

    Kind of confusing, intro was part of our 60 min...kind of unfair, bit the guy was nice. Ordered Chicken app, not much chicken to it, more cheese ball fried. Axe was fun for sure, but you have to pack up and move to make room for next party. The shuffle board was too close. Vicky our server was awesome!!

    I thought our food was incredibly good given the price! However, when we went to pay our check, it indicated that the golf simulator cost $120. 2 of us played for 2 hours and had a great time, but there was not a clear indication of this cost prior to booking our reservation or once we arrived. In the future, I would have preferred more transparency in this area.

    We had lots of different appetizers like Mac n cheese balls, pretzels, wings, pizza, fried ravioli and all were actually really tasty. The nachos need a little work, but the chicken nachos were better than plain nachos. Lots of draft beer selections. Fun atmosphere with family friendly televisions to watch from every angle. We did a reservation for the kids to do a golf and sports simulator. Very fun! Will definitely be back.

    Mainline sports and bar was great for our first time getting to try it at Oaklawn! We ordered the Apple blossom and the Oaklawn Tea.. we liked the Oaklawn tea the best! We ordered the Margarita Pizza and the Bacon Mac and Cheese Bites, and let me tell you they held up to their hype! My husband and I both left there absolutely full and miserable because we at so much food. Our waiter was hilarious and so patient with us when we were trying to decide what to get to eat for our lunch! I highly recommend Mainline Sports and Bar to everyone to give them a try! We will definitely be coming back! ❤️

    We went during racing season so it was busy. Also a Razorback game was going on so it was loud. We expected this and thought it was fun. The food was good. I got a Rueben and my husband a hamburger.
