It was a lot of fun to go and watch the races. You do not even need to bet if you do not want to. Get a program and watch. We had never been to horse racing and the guys at the counter were great to explain how it works and then help us through selecting. In addition to horse... More

Of course the other 3 came home winner's (me- not so) but, we had... More

They have really upgraded Batavia Downs. It is really nice. Like the other race track casinos it is smaller, less hectic, laid back atmosphere. Staff is friendly and its relaxing playing the games. When in the Batavia area we always stop for a good time.

It is a really well maintained casino. They do offer 2 smoking areas to play in there which was great for my friend who does smoke. It was a annoying that there were people playing on 2 machines at a time and gave off the "I dare you to challenge me" vibe so, no I didn't have it addressed as... More

Though small, this casino has a lot to offer, including the many super employees there! Everyone I met was friendly and made me feel like we already knew each other. I used my $5 free play (for first time people) and won $10.13! MANY machines, a sports bar, 2 restaurants (though I didn't see the second: my fault) and a... More

The staff was very courteous and it is a fun place to visit. There is a hotel under construction next door which I am sure will... More
