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

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.

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.
