The Turf Club at Golden Gate Fields
Service was very good, what we ordered was good, but the previous time what we ordered was much better tasting..the calamaris, the crab salad and clam chowder.
We had a lovely day at the races and the seating was perfect. We will be doing this again soon and will use OpenTable for reservations, well done.
I would tell someone interested in visiting The Turf Club that the views are AMAZING!!! The food was not good. We sent things back and weren't really satisfied with the replacements. The drinks were great but not worth paying for valet and the additional $15 entrance fee. I would definitely recommend visiting the track for $1 days or maybe some other promotional day! When we ventured to the lower levels (where EVERYBODY seemed to be) it was music playing and the people were friendly and plentiful. Our hostess (Cat) at The Turf Club made sure that we had what we needed and when it wasn't to our satisfactory...she tried her best to accommodate. I would say try it.....but eat first or go eat downstairs! lol
It was so cold! Other than that, we love going there.
Love the turf club at Golden gate fields, where else can you have a great meal and place your bet on
a winning horse?
Wonderful service, even on a busy day with a crowded restaurant. Food was excellent; improved over our last visit several years ago. Fun atmosphere!
I love Thoroughbred Racing, so I would eat hot dogs in the Grandstand. However, the Turf Club has moderately priced food and low price drinks as well. For the volume of covers they do, the food is very good.
A swell spot to enjoy one of the greatest sports in the world. The facility itself is lovely and located in a lovely spot. No trip to Bay Area is complete without a visit!
Great accommodations. We came in early, so we got a nice table with a great view of the track. It’s also exciting to see the full view of the live horse racing from the post parade to the finish... We’re also able to meet nice people (horse owners) that were sitting close by our table.
It’s a nice place to spend a weekend...just bring a lot of “dough”!
This was our first time at GGF & we were told to make sure that we got into the Turf Club. We had an incredible time. I'm not sure what Maria's title is, but she was amazing. She made our first experience here extremely memorable!! She was so helpful, friendly and went over & above what we expected. The wait staff & the betting window attendants were also very friendly and willing to answer all of our rookie questions we threw at them. So, we have recommended this to friends, and we will be returning with them in the future. What a great day!! Thank you Cynthia and your amazing crew, our trip to the Triple Crown was kicked off in spectacular fashion. Derby, Preakness & Belmont bound!! K Snyder
I love the Turf Club. I always have fun when I go whether I win or not. The food is excellent and plentiful.
Great table at finish line w/ excellent service and food!
We had a wonderful family day at Golden Gate Fields! Service and staff were so friendly and helpful especially to novices making bets. I loved the staff and the beautiful horses!
It’s always a treat to enjoy the track in a sunny day. The ambiance is what you’d expect watching horses race. The service in the Turf Club was top-notch, and the food was above average. No buffet today. Very friendly and accommodating staff.
I love this place. It's fun to come celebrate the New Year. The service was exceptional. However, the buffet really lacks pizazz. JUST NOT WORTH THE $$$$. The potatoes were instant out of the box. Veggies were overcooked. Salads were over dressed. Chicken overcooked and dry. I ordered a club sandwich after paying for the buffet and it was soaked in mayo and fries were cold. Ugh. Maybe next time.
Service was good. The food was ok. Too many loud yayhoo’s with foul language. Overall it was very pleasant. You used to be able to get away from the looser idiots in the turf club. Probably going to have to raise the price or give people the boot.
Only negative about food that it was not very warm..
Great time having good food and drinks watching the races!
Excellent place to eat, drink and watch horse races. Service was awesome with the mother/daughter duo of Jackie/Kat. They were totally awesome. Food is not bad for a restaurant at a race track. All in all great experience
Fun yearly tradition.
We will be coming back. Once you learn how to bet the experience really begins to build. I liked the ability to see the horses before each race and discuss with my family which one we all liked the best & then bet. Very exciting event. Thank you.
Awesome day, the turf club is very comfortable. We will be back
View was great, food was not that great, wings were over cooked and prices were high! Also server was horrible...took forever and was not attentive. Tried to get my daughter to get something she didn't want....
What's better than a day at the Turf Club with your son? Answer: Very few things. I always order off the menu rather than partaking in the buffet. Steak was quite good and was cooked just how it was ordered. Vegetables and potatoes done just how I like them, not soggy, and crispy, respectively. My son did have the buffet and found only two of the items he sampled "lacking in quality". The rest, he said was "quite good" and the desserts "really good". This is someone who is an excellent cook and very particular about his food. I suspect most don't go to the Turf Club for the food but if a "real" meal is what you enjoy while watching the races then this is the place to be. The trick, obviously, is to pick winners so the day pays for itself and you can feel good about leaving a very large tip.
The Turf Club at Golden Gate Fields is a wonderful brunch destination or afternoon getaway. Very good food and cocktails, friendly environment even for first time racegoers, unmatched views of San Francisco and the Bay. If you choose to bet, it's certainly available; or just enjoy a great brunch while watching the most beautiful of athletes - the thoroughbred race horse.
There was four of us in our party and we had a great time. The Travelzoo voucher helped a lot. Hoping there will be more.
Beautiful setting to enjoy horse racing, it’s a shame more people don’t go to the race track anymore. On ly the choice of food needs an upgrade but everything elsa is nice
Always a fun time at the Turf Club.
That is this is where you gamble. The view from the bathroom though is the best in the bay area.
We always enjoy the Turf Club. We usually have the buffet, the fried chicken is the best. Highly recommend it to anyone going to the races.
Had a wonderful day at the track. A little pricey on drinks and entrance fee, but food outstanding and service perfect. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun day at the bay.
From the moment my date and I arrived, we were treated royally! Daniel, our server, was funny, very attentive and made sure we had everything we wanted! The remaining staff was also very good in every way. The bathroom was kind of a mess, however, the atmosphere was amazing and the seats with monitors made the entire experience enjoyable. The views were spectacular and if I were to provide an overall experience rating....%100 easily! Keep up the fantastic work and thank you!
P.S. Making reservations was very easy!
