              We were there on a Sunday. They had a large buffet with a minimum of $45 if you ordered off the menu. The buffet food was fair. We had prime rib as our entree meat and it was not good at all. But other than that, the food was fair to good. The best was the omelette station!

              The salad was incredible . It had everything a salad buffet needed and all of it was fresh. The cold meats were great . The peel and eat shrimp a little slimy . The canneloni a little cool . The prime rib was like rubber , however I was warned by the carver that it was very rare. The food associates were very professional and did their jobs very ,very well. I was never warned that the buffet was set to close soon and I also missed out on the dessert table . Plates were cleared immediately. Beverages always filled . We were seated adjacent to a rowdy group of people clearly intoxicated that did not eat the buffet .I had no idea you can get into Ten Palms unless you were eating dinner there.

              Juan was an attentive and excellent waiter as well as his Argentine helper(woman). We love going to Ten Palms and sitting on the veranda having lunch. We make a point of taking friends there and they always seem to return on their own. The food is always exotic and prepared nicely. It's a bit pricey but since we only go there only once in a while, it's worth it. Great ambience, beautiful horses and a bit of reasonable betting action and it certainly is a worthwhile and fun filled afternoon.

              As far as a buffet restaurant in a race track goes, this is the best possible experience I have seen. The food is better than good. The service was great. The ambiance...well it's a race track so the ambiance was really nice inside the restaurant with windows overlooking the start/finish. As you might expect, it's really busy at the post time for the first race. So if you don't come in starving, you can wait until the second race and walk up to the buffet with no line. Then by the later races the crowd dwindles down and you own the place. Getting a table right by the windows over the track requires a party of six. We didn't have that and we still could see fine. But once tables opened up, we did move down and by the window is better. You can also walk outside at the start of each race and get a really nice elevated view of the finish line. It's a really nice track and the restaurant was a home run for Sunday Brunch.

              Hosts were polite and friendly. Server was rude. She seemed bothered by us. We were eating a buffet so we didn't need the server for food and even then, she rarely passed by our table for drink orders or water refills. When she actually did pass by our table for drinks we would say thank you and she wouldn't even smile or say you're welcome. Even on a busy day, a smile and a you're welcome is an easy thing to do. I asked another server for a spoon for my 6 year old since I couldn't ever find our server and was told to ask MY server. The bus boys were great. Plates never piled up. They were polite and friendly. Food was mediocre. Definitely not worth $59 per person for the buffet. I used to come with my family all the time when I was younger because it was my grandfather's favorite place. Since he passed, we decided to celebrate here as a tribute to him. Sadly, I will not be coming back. I was so disappointed with the whole Mother's Day experience.

              We went for mother's day. The race was fun, but we were seated outside on a very hot day. Requested a table inside for the air conditioning, but I was told they were for other reservations with more people, however several tables inside were empty all the time we were there. Not nice :/ We did not enjoy eating with the hot weather.

              Came for the Kentucky Derby. OpenTable listed this as “An Experience” @ $75/pp + 20% auto gratuity. An hour and a half after walking in, our tab for 3 people was $285! This was a complete joke of a buffet which offered a salad table, raw bar with stinky peel and eat shrimp and oysters, some “not so hot” side dishes, entrees included beef stew, Turkey, prime rib and chicken legs. Also there was a pasta table with cheese wheel and a dessert table. Soft drinks were also included. Do yourself a favor and run away!! This buffet was maybe worth $29.99/pp. My guess is they allow people to stay the entire day, watch the races and graze. At this price you can go to the finest Brunch places in Miami- Zuma, Ritz, Four Seasons etc, have bottomless drinks included and impeccable service at that price. If you’re here for the races, you can even go downstairs to the Carousel Club for better food, alcohol and more importantly atmosphere. There they have plenty of TVs, wagering machines etc.

              Nice, air-conditioned place to watch the races-with a sweeping view of the track. The food is marginally better than fast-food so, given the minimum spent required per person, you must be prepared to pay a premium for a) assigned seats for the entire day in an air-conditioned setting and b) a nice view of the track.

              Had an absolutely fantastic day here. Was a somewhat quiet Friday afternoon. A couple of banquet events that didn’t have any affect on us. Food was great. Service amazing. Had table service for wagering. Our guy Steve was super helpful and gave us novices some wagering tips. Overall a perfect way to spend the day at the races.

              It’s fun because it’s at the race track. So, it’s definitely an experience to watch horse racing while eating with friends and family. However, the food is just OK. The service is awful. And at $60 per person it’s probably going to be over priced for what it is

              I went with a group of friends and we ALL had a wonderful day. All you can eat for $45 - food was OK, and yes we would ALL go again. Seeing the horse race was so much fun, great day.

              Fun brunch with friends… we decided to combine with the race track. And despite a lousy day picking horses, we had a good day with friends. Carlos was a terrific server… the buffet was well-stocked with plenty of good choices, and the drinks well-made.

              Went here for the first time with my boyfriend for lunch on a Friday afternoon. I must say we had a blast. We sat outside and did some betting on the horses. The view was outstanding. The food was ok not outstanding and not bad either. We definitely will be back.

              We had a very nice time, eating at the buffet and watching the horse racing. The buffet has a variety of foods, includes salads, cheeses, omelet and carving stations, as well as other cold items, like shrimp and lobster. The service was very good. We will definitely be back.

              We have been going to the Ten Palms for years but because of the pandemic we hadn't been there in over a year. I'm happy to say it was better then ever. The food was excellent, the prices have remained reasonable for what you're getting and the whole experience was excellent from the moment we entered and were welcomed to the end of the day.

              This was not a good experience. The food was unmemorable and the service was really slow and very inattentive. All around horrible. I recommend just eating at one of the nicer venues next to it like Yardhouse or other and just get a seat in the grandstand.
