Quality horse racing and fun for all ages. Indoor and outdoor viewing available. I would suggest purchasing a program for the evening so you can read about the horses and the drivers. Racing is on 3 nights a week, Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday.

This place was a crazy. It was very disorganised, probably because it was so busy, but, if you're going to offer to cater to so many people, get your act together. The buffet was so busy that we hardly ate anything as you couldn't get...More

A bit on the smaller side compared to places like Casino Rama or even Woodbine Racetrack, but still a nice little casino with great games to choose from. Horse Racing starts in June but judging by the crowds I've seen in the past, they could...More

After the reviews on trip advisor and elsewhere, a new caterer has taken over the Georgian Downs Buffet and will be effective the entire 2016 season. They now have award winning World Culinary Olympic chefs on staff as well as new management entirely.

They do have cash machines (atm's) but the service fees are quite high there. So we usually try to make sure we have cash ready for the night before we get there
