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.

THE FOOD AT THE BUFFET WAS EXCELLENT. SERVICE WAS GOOD BUT A LITTLE SLOW, ONLY SAW THE WAITRESS 3 TIMES. A LITTLE PRICEY FOR THOSE OF US WHO DO NOT EAT LIKE 'HORSES'. WELL WORTH IT FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF WATCHING THE RACES FROM A TABLE.

Reservation was wrong I received a confirmation for party of six was told it was for a party of two. Requested window seating received 3rd tier although plenty of advance notice to accommodate my request was given. Hot as Hell air conditioner was not working,no compensation was offered as in "Sorry the air isn't working ...a free drink on the house... would you like to re-book? percentage off your bill....but nothing.Food was okay but in the heat it was like eating in a sauna. Very uncomfortable and appetite was suppressed. I would return, but only if the air was working.

MEH food, horribly hot inside as Air conditioning was not working. Food just so-so...really did not get my money's worth and won't go here again. Service non-existent. Really could have used another glass or water or cocktail but was never asked again.

Booking a reservation on-line was very easy, however I requested window seating on my reservation form but didn't get it when I arrived at the restaurant. The food was very good, but rather expensive unless you choose the buffet and are likely to make multiple trips back to the buffet table.

Usually I love eating at the Skyline Restaurant as we watch the horses run at Charlestown. The only reason I am rating them so low this time is because the air conditioning was not working the night we were there and it was in the 90's outside and it felt that warm inside. This made it almost unbearable to eat or enjoy the time at the races. Our waiter was working hard, but he was not as attentive refilling our drinks and as hot as it was inside, we needed that, though we were not charged for our drinks by management. Hopefully the next time we attend this restaurant the air conditioning will be repaired.

The service was wonderful, Rachel was very attentive through- the evening, the buffet was taste especially the carved turkey & prime rib...
The only cloud on the evening was the lack of air conditioning, apparently it was under repair
so the room was very warm on a very hot day.

The Skyline Terrace is excellent. We drive over 4 hours each way to dine there and to enjoy the live racing action at Charles Town Raceway. The food is fabulous. Dinner service begins at 5:30pm and ends around 9:30 and this includes a wonderful buffet. This is a fantastic deal because while you are enjoying live horse racing, you can partake in salads, fruits, cheeses, crackers, entrees and scrumptious deserts. I find all of the food to be top notch and wonderfully displayed. The staff is attentive and friendly. I have nothing negative to say about this restaurant and look forward to returning as often as possible.

First of all our waitress was wonderful and the food for the most part was good. I think it's a little expensive for what you get but again..the food was tasty. I had made some requests online when making the reservations and was very impressed that they called me at home before we came and made sure everyone in our party was comfortable (handicapped person). I really appreciated that attention to detail.
