Monticello Raceway trots out new dining

21 Sep

MONTICELLO, NY — No matter how glitzy they look eating and drinking facilities at race tracks usually leave something to be desired.

The powers that be at Monticello Casino and Harness Racing Raceway are promising something better at The Terrace, the facility’s new upscale restaurant and bar that provides an alternative to the Winners Circle Buffet and the Food Court which do not offer table service or much imagination.

The menu will lean heavily on seafood and steaks, along with a line of chef’s specials. A full-service bar is included in the new operation. Will what’s on the initial offering fulfill the promise? We’ll leave that up to you, but a cursory glance at the menu available online doesn’t show much new. And, the fact that its “wine list” is limited to a few generic styles isn’t encouraging.

Hours: 5 to 10 p.m. Fridays and 5 to 11 p.m. Saturdays. Reservations are not needed required.

Monticello Casino and Harness Racing Raceway is located at 204 Route 17B in Monticello, just north of Middletown in Orange County.
