Went to Silks buffet on Saturday and it was not good. The crab was terrible and so were the salads that had no fixings. Every time I went up trays were empty, for the price around $35 not worth it. And don't get me started...More

attended a special event so we got outside area private seating - it's all a bit run down and 'gambly' - parking is a challenge. If you like betting on horses it's all a little confusing! Friendly staff.

Public Transportaion . Found it a long walk for seniors and parking way to expensive. Stopped in at the casino .. Couldn't spend to much as parking was $12.

A day at the races complete with buffet brunch is so much fun! Whether you bet big or small,Mir not at all, it's a unique excursion for a family or friends outing. Watching the horses never gets old.

HI.. I am planning to go with my partner to the Hasting Park Racecourse but not sure of the way to do this.. Do we pay to get into the PNE then just go into the Raceway or do we have to pay to get into both or can you just go to the racecourse separately. We are seniors (60"s) so not too old but just like to get it straight. how long is the evening race on the 26th and will we have a chance to see the names of the horses prior to going there? Also we wanted to take in the concert that night if possible but I guess it could be over by then. Please let me know what you can?
