Our family attended Sunday Brunch and had a wonderful experience. There were 5 children and 4 adults and all of us were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The variety of food and the quality was perfect. The staff was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great. I will definitely be back with our family.

The slot machines and the casino are OK but not anymore a great attraction to me, but the buffeet is one of the best in Ottawa area, and the price is not too bad.

I usually make a visit there once a month for "date night" with my wife. Place is very clean and well run. Food is usually excellent and prices are reasonable. Great place to spend $20 for about three hours of entertainment (I plan penny machines).

The Winners' Circle is an ideal place for a fun group evening. The buffet is quite reasonably priced with many choices, plenty of salads, roast beef and many many desserts (my weak point!) It's fun to watch the horses and listen to the crowd roar when the races are on. We eat, do a little betting and a little playing... More

We seem to end up at this casino multiple times on visits to Ottawa. On this trip we discovered the restaurant. We ate on a Wednesday night and had a wonderful window table which gave us a great view of the antique car show that they have there on Wednesdays. This particular Wednesday the cars were directly below the restaurant... More

I frequent this place Wednesday nights for the great car show in the parking lot. Plenty of cars and motor cycles. Then inside for the buffet (VERY GOOD) and a few hands of blackjack. Not much of a horse racing fan, but seems to be popular. Weekends offer local bands with popular favorites, entertaining to watch and sing along to... More

Saturday night is the seafood buffet and prime rib roast beef night. Lots of seating. Nice view of the race track from all seats. The food is good. Price very reasonable.

I have reviewed the casino before, and still enjoy the casino, and am sometimes sad to see some favorite slot go, but be replaced by newer ones. I understand the need for change and modernization. This review however, is of the restaurant at lunch time. We were a party of five, and the service was excellent as usual. I felt... More

A very good cassino. Lots of slots. Cassino is clean and well kept. We always enjoy our time at this Cassino. People are nice and we seem to get a lot of play time. A great evening out. There is live entertainment on Saturday. There is a buffet on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday for 11.99 a great value.
