Monday night "burgers half off" night has become an institution and was packed with a local service group meeting as well as plenty of couples and families in booths and tables. The atmosphere is very causal and relaxed with a few t.v.'s on sports games on the wall but not overpowering with noise and distractions. The service is good and... More

We visited a friend on our way to Fla. He took us to Trackside for lunch. The staff was friendly and the food was good. The place could use a little updating. We would go back for lunch when we go back to see our friend.

We were three seniors ambling about in Ashland and took one of us to have a birthday lunch here. All selections - salads and sandwiches were very good. " Best steak sub" from one who knows. Good service and although there were many filled tables, our booth was quiet for conversations with one another.

I love their Ribs. They are the best in the area. Served up with Baked Potato and vegetable. This is a great place for all sorts of foods, but their ribs are outstanding!

We arrived for lunch and it was starting to get busy, but the wait person was very patient with us. I ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger rare and my friend got the Chicken Salad. When the food arrived, the portion was large, and we were surprised at the taste of the food and the service. My Bacon Cheeseburger was cooked rare... More

Not for families or large groups (we had 8). The staff clearly did not want us there. Everyone in my group was uncomfortable immediately upon talking to the hostess and asking to be seated. Strike One-The hostess was just rude! From the time we walked in the door they were just condescending. Strike Two-We were asked to wait 30 minutes... More

The Grill is next to the NS railway. But the atmosphere is very well done horse racing. All meals are oversized. Great service. Is number 1 for good reason.

Needed a place to get dinner on our way north. Not far from 95 & our hotel. Decided to try this quaint restaurant, it is by the main Amtrac railroad tracks in Ashland (name of the place comes from the pictures of race horses on the walls). Choices that you can't believe: apps, salads, entre's, and a sandwich list that... More
