Skyline Terrace - Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races Ratings and Reviews

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.

Very easy book reservation, we had a good time. While have eaten there many times, this time we were disappointed in the buffet food selection and quality so next time we have both agreed that we will order off the menu next time.

Had a great evening with friends. The Buffet although not as much of a variety as I remember from our last visit the food was still good and the dessert selections were as always --- very plentiful. We enjoy the ability to relax in an air conditioned space with plenty to eat and drink while watching the horse racing just outside the window.

Everyone was so helpful! My 88y.o. Mom's birthday was the occasion. She says we have her spoiled bringing her to "play the ponies" and for the fantastic buffet! She uses a walker and my sister uses a wheelchair but you all make us feel welcome. We all love to come to Charles Town and making reservations has never been easier.

Another great time at CTR and the Skyline Terrace! Always a fun evening with great food and service. If you haven't been, you don't know what our missing. The staff is great, the racing is a lot of fun, and oh, did I mention the food....
The selection of the buffet was not near ...
The selection of the buffet was not nearly up to what it costs. I was disappointed in that. Outside of that everything was great. It was our 44 year anniversary. Our server was Stella. She was outstanding. Very personable but not smothering. I had flowers delivered. They were put on the wrong table. Stella noticed the reservation name was the same that was on the flowers. When we got there She had it right for us. I'm not saying no one else would have but she did. My wife wanted to give her a flower but we didn't see her on our way out.
The food wasn't any better than Golden Corral but way more expensive. No I don't eat crab legs.
What has happened to the food?
The food on the buffet is wanting. Too many fried foods, limited selections and a true lack of creativity in the kitchen all make for a quite disappointing meal. I love to come for the races, but will be ordering off of the menu from now on...skip the buffet.
skyline terrace at the races
Food is good. We had an issue with the cold dessert of cheese cake not being cold but they brought us another one. the problem with buffets with a carvery n the middle is always "who gets served first" from which direction. this buffet is the same. it was good otherwise. some of the dishes werent labled but it was pretty clear what they were. whats not clear when they check you in is that if you say yes to the horse brochure, there's an added charge. they should say "would you like to buy a race guide" instead of "would you like a race guide". too many new people coming to the races. The food is good and generally hot. I would also like to see the price of the buffet posted on the menu so when you are deciding you dont have to wait for the server to tell you. But its nice that the table is yours for the night (so why set a time??) so if you want to eat all night and watch or bet all night you can. Food is worth it!
The sea food buffet was very nice.
We went to this restaurant primarily to eat while betting on horses at the track. We were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the food. We do not normally like buffets because of the "bulk cooking" that tends to be involved. Each item seemed to be properly prepared and tastefully presented. We would go back for the food alone.
The buffet was good, not great... let see:
Salads - Great
Soups - Great
Crab legs - Very good
Prime rib - Very good
Desserts - Very Good
Vegetables and sides - not to good run of the mill sysco
Overall not as good as previous years.
Our serve was very good her name was Stella S.
Thanks Stella you saved the day.....
A night for the races, not the food
The quality of the food offerings has slipped a notch in recent times: selections reduced,
casserole type items were very salty and consistency pasty, breads and rolls were prepackaged Wonderbread, and desserts were like grocery store bought. Thanks goodness for the meat carvery.
On the plus side, service was good and, because of the racing, it's still one of the most fun places to go for an evening out.
The food was just O.K.
'Beautiful view to enjoy dining'... however the food was mediocre at best. I have dined there many times in the past and the food was much better. It seemed that the overall quality has diminished, for approximately the same price. I think next time I will just enjoy the horse racing and eat prior to entering the track. Hope to see improvement.
I was dissapointed with the menu choices.
I think my expectations were too high maybe. I have dined at the Final Cut so I assumed it was similar to that experience. The staff did an excellent job but the food quality wasn't up to par. The cake I had requested was very good and they did deliver as promised.
The food was absolutely horrible.
The Prime Rib which is the featured item tasted like shoe leather and the
rest of the dishes were bad as well.
They really should do something about the quality of food they are serving.
I have been eating in the dining room for 50 years but will no longer do so.
Horse racing and good eats
Great fun watching and betting on the horses. Good buffet food, but nothing over the top. Staff aren't very attentive and know nothing about the menu or wines. They could use some brushing up to solid their waiting skills. That aside they are nice. I love going here for its casual ambience and fun. Great for groups.
Food was poor
The cold shrimp was mushy and served in water half way up the bowl. The turkey was dry and the prime rib wasn't very flavorful. The ice cream machine was out of ice cream half way through dinner. the fried chicken was pretty good and our server was very good but i was disappointed there was no fried clams. The food was nit up to standard that was charged. Very disappointing.
Celebrating Birthday at Track
Skyline Terrace is nice with great view but, the buffet needs help!. Most of food was cold, tasteless and cheap. The salads were really good, ceasar dressing was really good, crab soup was awesome, steamed mussels were good, prime rib was good but most food on hot bar side was sorry. Fried Shrimp was hard and cold, chicken wings cold and hard, salmon cakes cold and didn't taste like salmon at all. Please consider revamping the buffet selections for $26.99.
Overall good time was had but with better food selections it would have been better.
Great time, fun place!
As always, a fun time with live racing to one side, and casino to the other. Wait staff super and always ready with a fresh beverage or refill of a coffee. And they are fun to talk with as well. With all the casinos and racinos popping up, Charlestown remains a great venue to enjoy the races, run into the casino for a bit and back out to the races. And they hold your table for you so you have a the best of all worlds for the entire time you are their guest. Well done!
It's Post Time!
Another great experience at CTR and the Skyline Terrace! As always the service and food was outstanding! Everyone on the staff is professional and works hard to make your visit memorable. The buffet is always fresh, hot and delicious. And of course you can't forget the racing! It's great to have a TV at each table for watching the action and replays up close. They have betting windows at each end of the restaurant, but of course there is no obligation to bet. Just pick a horse and watch the action unfold. Outstanding experience - again!
