Date nite for my hubby and myself. We love to go for nice buffet and watch the horse races. It is a really fun thing to do. The entire front is glass window so the races are right there to witness while you eat. Make a reservation! After the race, and dinner, (10:30pm) we went to the event center located there to see Jay Leno. He was good but the seating HORRIBLE!!! Stuffed in tighter than an airplane seat. I'm not exaggerating! I had an extremely obese man in 1/3 of my seat! Thank God I don't eat much! Just saying"....and FYI!!! DON"T go see a show there! They are breaking every fire code.

We enjoyed knowing that our table was for the whole night. The hostess said we could actually eat dinner or have drinks, leave and gamble, come back get dessert, whatever. We got the buffet, it was ok-not the best value for the money. We enjoyed being able to bet on and watch the horse races from any seat in the restaurant with large viewing windows all around (and small tvs at every table was also a plus!). Service was Phenomenal! Betting window attendants were also super nice and helpful! We will be back - Next time we are ordering off the menu to see if that makes a difference in the food.

After a very short wait at the check-in we were given a very well-situated table. The menu had enough variety to keep everyone at the table happy and the steaks and crabs were prepared just fine and arrived at the desired temperature. The wine list was extensive and the desserts inexpensive and tasty. The table service we received was the best experienced (worldwide) this entire year. And, of course, access to the horse-betting area was convenient.

Initially we were ushered to a table near the buffet line, but asked to be moved closer to the horse track. A manager quickly had us relocated. We ordered off of the menu instead of the buffet. The filet mignon was very tasty and the crab corn chowder was also very good. Bonnie our server was very efficient and attentive. She had a very nice personality without being intrusive. Betting on the horses was a lot of fun and with a betting "window" right in the restaurant it was quick and easy to place bets from the restaurant. I will certainly return.

It was my second time there. I was really disappointed in the temperature of the building and lack of servers. Our server was excellent but completely overwhelmed. I felt bad for him. Food at buffet was lovely and tasty as usual. Something must have been terribly wrong with the ventilation. It was way too hot in the building. I will go back but hope for a better experience next time.

The reason to eat here is to attend the horse races and participate in pari-mutuel betting. Thus the food, though good, is secondary to the reason for being there. And probably how much one enjoys the experience will be linked closely to how well one does at the track.

When we arrived we were a little surprised when your security told us that there were NO restaurants on premises where we could have dinner because one of us forgot ID. We asked twice too so you might want to reeducate the people at the casino entrance. Had I not known that they had to be incorrect because I had seen plenty of kids at this restaurant previously we would have just left.
Once we figured out on our own how toget there , because two employees gave us bad directions the restaurant was ok, not exceptional but the races were fun. Server fine.

We come to Charles Town Races at least a few times each year from the Tidewater Virginia area. It is worth the drive. The big window facing the track makes for a fun evening of racing and the food is superb. The buffet is open from 5:30pm and stays available until after 9:30. It is a lot of fun to watch the racing action and eat for the entire four hours! We love it! There are viewing monitors at each table, betting machines available and live tellers to accept wagers as well. The buffet has prime rib, shrimp, ribs, chicken, salad, assorted cheese, fish, carved turkey, seafood creole, tilapia and many other items. The deserts were plentiful and there were too many different kinds to choose from...it's a good thing that we had four hours to eat...plenty of time to pace ourselves.

The restaurant at the racetrack allows you to watch the racing in comfort while enjoying a meal with friendly service from the staff. Good choices on the menu and you don't have to leave the restaurant if you want to place a wager. A great place for a group of friends to get together for an enjoyable evening.

Actually, I was disappointed. I was there about 5 years ago and the food was much better and the tables were prettier. The server was AWFUL! We had to hunt her down for drinks. Oh, and the cocktails I ordered were sub-par. It's a cool place to go because you overlook the racetrack and can sit/eat/relax for as long as you like while betting the horses. Other than that - NOT worth the price (food, drinks, service). I doubt I'll be back

We enjoy going to this spot for a relaxing way to watch the races and have dinner. The meal is always very good, although on our last visit, many of the foods were not very hot. We also seemed to have very slow service this time. Had this been our first visit, it may have been alarming, but we realize this is not the norm.

Just about everything on the buffet is pre-packaged, frozen, or canned. Truly disappointing for a $63 meal for two. My husband enjoyed the Prime rib from the buffet, and the steamed shrimp were decent. The only redeeming dessert was the Creme brûlée...everything else tasted dry or as though it had previously been frozen.

Enjoyed the dinner and the races, but may I suggest an easier way to get into the restarant, when we arrived from the outside the door to the restaurant was locked we had to walk to the next entrance, we are seniors, to far to walk.

Went there with 4 of our foodie snobs and they loved the food and atmosphere. They all chose the buffet. An added fun was watching and betting on the ponies races. We all went into the casino afterwards and our friends enjoyed that as well. Fun evening had by all.

we were first to be seated and for some reason got seated up top on the 5th tier which was warmer than I could tolerate. Yet most lower level tables and seats were unoccupied until much later, it at all. What's it take to get a good seat?

Very very disappointed. Invited 4 friends to join me for dinner and to watch the horse races. The only thing i ate was the shrimp and creme brule. The clams were tough, spare ribs were fatty, prime rib overcooked and tough, carrots cold and tasteless, cheese cake tasted a little like butter. I did not try anything else because I was afraid to. The salad bar looked OK so cannot comment on that.
Also, was disappointed that there was no one to show us how to place a bet. We had never been to a race track before and knew nothing about betting or what it all meant. So that was sad. But we enjoyed watching.

The skyline Terrace is a good restuarant but it could be better. The buffet has a good asortment of items and deserts and you can order from the menu. The tables are close because the sapce is limited and it get's crowded on weekends when horse racing patrons and groups come in. I generally liked the buffet food but improvements can be made to make it even better, including offering a self-serving ice cream machine, adding whipped cream and fresh strawberries, offering shrimp and possibly crab legs, adding sugar free pies and cakes, and providing a separate seating section for Executive Producer and ICON players or atleast priority seating. These players are Hollywood Casino's major investment and being seated at a cramped location and at a small table is inconsistent with how these type of players should be handled.

The food was simply o.k., the service as well. We were seated in a timely manner but the buffet truly lacked luster. I did like the fried shrimp and my husband liked the peel and eat shrimp - nothing else had the flavors that we expected from a "Prime Rib and Seafood Buffet".

We had a very pleasant experience with the exception of it being extremely hot In the skyline Terrace. I understand it was very hot outside however you need to make it at least comfortable for your customers. It definitely was not comfortable and we felt sorry for your employees with their heavy clothing. Our waitress and busboy were wonderful . We couldn't ask for a better waitstaff.
