Great restaurant for horse race fans. Lots of cool history, interesting. We had dinner here 2 out of 4 nights during our recent visit. Good food and drinks and a nice happy hour menu.

Came here for dinner and had an excellent meal. We started with a nice wine, and some garlic bread (seems to the house bread). For my meal, I had the small filet/shrimp scampi combination meal, with a side of sweet potato fries. The filet was...More
