Meadows Racetrack & Casino

By

One of the largest casinos on the East Coast, the 350,000-square-foot Meadows Racetrack & Casino features more than 3,500 slot machines and some of Pennsylvania's first gaming tables in its state-of-the-art gaming facility. The Meadows facility also features harness racing at the racetrack, along with eight restaurants. Shuttle service is available to the casino from nine area hotels.


SLOTS & TABLE GAMES:

The Meadows casino boasts over 3,500 slot machines - from favorite traditional slots to hot, new games. They also offer 62 Table Games, including popular games like roulette, big six wheel, mini baccarat, three card poker and craps. The Meadows also boasts a 9,800-square foot, 26-table Poker Room located on the Track Level with shuffling machines and a full-service bar and food service area. Daily tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $40 to $150 are held twice a day. Major tournaments are staged on a quarterly basis, including qualifiers for the World Series of Poker.


HORSE RACING:

The Meadows racetrack, open since the 1960s, has long been a popular part of Pittsburgh's professional sports scene. The harness racing facility features a year-round racing calendar, with races running Mondays - Thursdays most weeks during spring, summer and fall. The old-fashioned grandstand behind glass, used during four-and-a-half decades of racing, has been replaced by three rows of stadium-style, outdoor seating putting hundreds of patrons close to the home stretch. Inside, 72 kiosks have individual 16-inch TV screens to watch any race across the country, and 25 wall-mounted televisions show additional tracks.


DINING:

The Meadows Racetrack and Casino features three full-size restaurants, including Bistecca, an Italian steakhouse with upscale dining and breathtaking views atop the casino. Located on the casino level are both The Terrace Café and five specialty micro-restaurants in The Meadows’ Food Court. The Terrace Café serves up classic American cuisine from coast to coast, as well as international favorites. The third full-service restaurant is Delvin's Café situated right next to the racetrack. Seats in every Meadows Casino restaurant have a view of the racetrack.


LOCATION:

The Meadows Racetrack & Casino is located in Washington County south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It's just off Exit 41 (Racetrack Road exit) of Interstate 79, offering easy access from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Youngstown, Erie, Charleston WV, and Buffalo.
