Fun place, poor buffet
Aug. 2019
We enjoy the races as a family and the betting staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The buffet is definitely a disappointment. I would avoid it. Fun evening though.

Definitely worth the price
Aug. 2019
First time visit for the Friday night buffet at 9.99. Everyone is allowed in at 4.45 and rush for a table and immediately get a place in line for the buffet. That's the worst of it. A nice variety of salads and vegetables. Beef was excellent however the lobster tail is doled out one at a time and difficult to remove from the shell due to overcooking. If you are someone that enjoy lobster you have to continuously line up again . The beef and yorkshire and veggies are worth the trip.

Dinner and races
Jun. 2019
Always have a great time here. The dinner is buffet and pretty good. Watching the races is always fun. Have gone to the casino, as well but I admit, I love the races...especially with a group of friends.

Quick visit

My wife and I stopped in here on our way home to Windsor after visiting Elora. At first, we didn't like the denominations of the slots we were looking at.....very few penny machines. Eventually we found the penny area and played our token $50. Found a machine that gave us 300 free spins, and by the time we left it, we won $500. Nice. Extremely rare occurrence.

buffet was excellent
Jun. 2019 • Couples
We went to the restaurant at Grand Valley raceway on Saturday night for our 45th anniversary. THe buffet was 9.99 each and the food was excellent.
We heard that one had to wait for 2 hours-we arrived at 4 pm and were seated at 4:45.
We did have to ask the waitress for water=she had not come to our table at all. THe buffet consisted of rolls, cabbage slaw, lettuce salad, roasted potatoes. cooked vegetables, mashed potatoes, yorkshire pudding,prime rib and lobster tail
Someone told the waitress that is was our anniversary and the waitress gave us a piece of complimentary pie
a lovely meal for the price

Dinner at Elements Prime Ribs and Lobster Tails
May 2019
Well, they advertise all you can eat Prime Rib and Lobster Tails. Can we say Moooo because you have to line up like cattle. This is so popular that you need to get there at 6:00pm for the 7:00pm seating. You may still wait up to 1.5 hours. The dinning room is just a cafeteria but the food was very good. Now, take into consideration the drive, the wait time and any money you spent in the Casino waiting ($65.00 for me) It may be better to find another place and pay full bill and get a, let's say, more human experience.

I am sure it will be better after renovations are done. Played the slots, made a few dollars. Enjoyable experience.

Great little casino
Mar. 2019 • Couples
Previously we didn’t really like going to this casino as it was pretty small but in the pass month they opened up two new sections. Now we love it. No longer have people behind you waiting for a machine. Lots of new machines.

Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
Jan. 2019
We bought tickets for the Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre at the Grand River Raceway. The dinner is located at the Lighthouse restaurant. The Show was great. The dinner was also very good. The food was wonderful, it tasted delicious! but the advertisement says it will be buffet style, but we each only got to go up and get one plate of food. You eat in between Acts of the show, so everyone else was done eating and they were bringing dessert around, but I still had food on my plate, the second act started and I was still eating my dinner, while others were eating dessert and some were even finished. Other than the speed at which dinner was served, everything was great. We did slip over to the Casino after dinner, it was under renovations at the time, so it would be nice to see once it is finished.
