The food was average. The location is a bit off the beaten track. Nothing special to make an effort to get to.

Since the Turf Lounge closed its doors in September 2016, is anyone aware of a similar venue? The Turf Lounge had a great atmosphere and it was fun to groups there to have a bite and a few drinks, learn a little about betting on the ponies and have some fun. So "upscale" off track betting is what I'm looking for to host an event.
