  • AMAZING. The museum was impressive, large, and has a state of the art unique movie screen that is in a large oval circulating the room. Got to see two races on the tracks. The place as a whole is incredible and worth the hype. The restaurant food is pretty yummy. Of course we had to try their mint julip, wow that was strong. Also tried their mule which was made with bourbon and was not bad. Staff from restaurant, the track, the museum, were all so nice.

  • Overall 99% great experience. Staff was very personable and helpful. I would’ve rated the experience a 5 star if it wasn’t for the cantankerous lady wearing the eye patch. She was so rude to me that I picked up my money and went to another wager line. When I reported her to her supervisor, I got the sense that the staff appreciated me speaking up about her poor customer service skills. She’s probably rude towards her coworkers too. When enough people speak up, eventually people like her can no longer be allowed to treat people so poorly.

  • We spent Thanksgiving 2017 on Millionaires Row 4 and would like to applaud the staff for their excellent food and service in this year's event. The turkey was absolutely delicious, tender, and moist. We had a wonderful time this year. The changes you have made this year regarding the quality of food from past years is remarkable. Thank you.

  • Iconic, so you have to do it. We were traveling to watch our football team. This was definitely a plus to go watch the horses and bet a few bucks for fun. Once in a lifetime. They do allow smoking, and there is probably lots of drinking at all times, but they keep a certain level of sophistication at these events so that it's nothing belligerent. I'd say it is still family friendly and you don't have to sit in your seats. You can move around and go to the finish line if you like. A friendly guy on a golf cart gave us a lift in the parking lot to the the front gates and gave us free tickets. We just tipped him.

  • This place was extremely nice and nothing like what I expected. Honestly, the views from the seats we had weren't the best. And hardly anybody was outside anyways. But there were nice little alcoves all along the wall inside with a tv and chairs and tables to watch the races. Which was very nice. They had very good mixed drinks. The bloody Mary's are the best. And betting on the races was not difficult to do. Although if you don't know everything about the one particular race and who you picked, the people taking the bets will not be very friendly to you. I was even told to step away and come back when I knew what I wanted to do. I think I was missing the lane number for my picks. That was all. Seems like something they could help you with. But whatever. It was a nice place. And a good way to spend a few free hours.
