We booked, ordered and paid two months ago. $105 and change per head for 4 courses. The menu was fairly specific, & many discussions around food intolerances were had, prior to deciding and paying. We were assured my meal would be catered to... if you are ok with, "catered to", as being items simply left off not swapped. The entree... More

Have been coming here for the past 3 years and go to the Sky Lounge. Its a yearly trip that 9 of us do. we have the $200 package and that gives you 5 course meal, and 6 hour drink package. All in all a great day out with friends.

Had a lovely day, package was well worth it! Food great, service great and to get the full race day experience was wonderful. If you like a good day at the races but think going just as a couple to the skyline is a bit of a waste,,, it's not! We really enjoyed it!

Pleasant city race track. Nothing flash but good for a afternoon of fun. Plenty of bookmakers to choose from plus the tote. Average food outlets but good bar facilities. Easy parking walking distance from the entrance.

The lack of service is disappointing For the money you pay to be a member you would at least expect capable bar staff, there lack of knowledge an general unwillingness to help is enough to change venues
