I want to congratulate Rideau Carleton on such a awful new year dinner buffet. The beef was tough and very grizzly, lasagna was awful hard and dry, but what would one expect for a new year dinner? Turkey with stuffing, meat pie, mashed potatoes. Wrong none of those there, the choices were ribs beef and salmon. Congratulations Rideau Carleton buffet... More

We are not Casino or Horse Race fans, but attended as part of a group event. Nor are we buffet fans but were very surprised with the quality of the buffet. They had roast beef cut on demand and had a nice selection of sides. With the great deserts offered as well as cheese and salads, the offering was OK.... More

Our family attended Sunday Brunch and had a wonderful experience. There were 5 children and 4 adults and all of us were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The variety of food and the quality was perfect. The staff was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great. I will definitely be back with our family.

The slot machines and the casino are OK but not anymore a great attraction to me, but the buffeet is one of the best in Ottawa area, and the price is not too bad.

I usually make a visit there once a month for "date night" with my wife. Place is very clean and well run. Food is usually excellent and prices are reasonable. Great place to spend $20 for about three hours of entertainment (I plan penny machines).

The Winners' Circle is an ideal place for a fun group evening. The buffet is quite reasonably priced with many choices, plenty of salads, roast beef and many many desserts (my weak point!) It's fun to watch the horses and listen to the crowd roar when the races are on. We eat, do a little betting and a little playing... More

We seem to end up at this casino multiple times on visits to Ottawa. On this trip we discovered the restaurant. We ate on a Wednesday night and had a wonderful window table which gave us a great view of the antique car show that they have there on Wednesdays. This particular Wednesday the cars were directly below the restaurant... More

I frequent this place Wednesday nights for the great car show in the parking lot. Plenty of cars and motor cycles. Then inside for the buffet (VERY GOOD) and a few hands of blackjack. Not much of a horse racing fan, but seems to be popular. Weekends offer local bands with popular favorites, entertaining to watch and sing along to... More
