They charged me twice for the buffet. Contacting bank to remove charge! Food was ok cold and service was extremely slow.

We had a great time! A few things that would have made it better: clean the dead flies off the window sill, the waiter/waitress should stop by the table more often to ask if we needed anything (had they done so, we would have ordered many more drinks from the bar), and turn up the air conditioning (it was too warm).

What we loved: The followup call on our reservation was nice and I got to tell them we were celebrating birthdays. The buffet servers were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The variety and quality of food was good. We were sat at a table right by the window. We were not rushed to leave.

We will be back and we will recommend to others.

We have been to this Pink Buffet at the Meadowlands N.J. several times over the past year Only because they run 1/2 price deals.

Although there is always a large variety of offerings, meat, poultry, fish & vegetarian, most of the food that is supposed to be hot is Always luke warm at best.

Most items are always, at best, average or weird in taste.

Absolutely Not recommended if you are going to pay the Full Friday $29.95-$34.95 price!

We always try Every item on the buffet in the hopes of finding something, anything, authentic in taste or even truly edible. The Only item that was hot & tasty on 10/11/19 was the Butternut Squash Soup.

The Mozzarella, Tomato & Red Onion Caprese was mild & The Creamy Deviled Eggs were a bit mustardy with too big & firm diced peppers and chives.

Even though the buffet opens at 6PM, this time was the First time they put the (mostly generic tasting) deserts out at 7:40PM instead of their Always 8PM!

We are so sorry but in good conscience we cannot recommend this restaurant, at least not without a deal.

Dining in the Pink at the Meadowlands is fabulous! The food is superb with a good variety. Of course, what is better than sitting trackside enjoying the races while you eat.

Had a great evening at the Big M for the first time. Restaurant was fantastic. Service was top notch and so was the food. My only minor issue was that we could not get a program upstairs when we arrived and had to go back downstairs to get one. Was surprised they were not available at the reservation desk.

My wife and I really enjoyed our evening. We live 11 hours away and it was our first time attending. We own shares in four horses and were very interested in seeing the Big M. We were not disappointed. If we are in the area again, we’ll be sure to come again.

Fun way to see the horse races. Buffet is nothing special but was fine and had a decent variety of salads, pasta and meats. Convenient betting windows to place your bets for tie races. They also had someone walking to the tables to take your bets without having to get up but she never made it to our table

We all had a great time, as usual. Food & service were great. The only complaint was the noise level. We were having trouble having a conversation at our own table. Even the employees said it was unusually loud. Maybe some sound deadening panels or something to absorb some of the noise.

I think Pink was an awesome time, the food was tasty if it was hot. Some times it was a little cold but the food at least the bite of Italy was really good. I think the variety of food to the variety of dessert was great. Such a great experience and concept. The only complain was that it was freezing! So just make sure you have a sweater. Other than that I’m sure anyone would have a great time there.

The service was great and the food was really good. The evening was a pleasant surprise what more can you ask for great service really good food and a night at the races. We had a great evening and a lot of fun. I would suggest this to any horse player looking for a night out.

We enjoyed our night at the races at Pink. We had great food, a great view of the track and the finish line and the service was great. It was a surprisingly quiet night at the racetrack given that it was fan appreciation night. The weather was overcast however and there were a few sprinkles so maybe that drove people away. Overall a great family night and we look forward to returning.

July 4th weekend limited the number of patrons so we were moved into trotters, which is also very nice. Not a huge fan of buffets but everything was refilled and fresh. Quality of food was good, service was great and they had soft serve ice cream for dessert. How can you go wrong.

We originally made reservations for Pink then we received a phone call that we were going to be sat in Trotter, which is always a good experience, but this past Friday since I didn’t have a party of 4 and were only 3 we were sat in the individual chairs. It was extremely difficult to eat at and I was expecting a table. I must say this was the first time I am disappointed with Trotters, I usually have a good experience but not this time! I usually come down at least 2-3 times a month but not if it is going to be like this.

CHEF DENNIS makes the night a winner even though I lost on the horses.
Wonderful buffet as usual. He went out of his way to prepare a special pasta dish for me due to dietary concerns. Additionally, CHEF DENNIS goes from table to table making sure the customers are satisfied with their meals.
And that dessert bar......can’t wait.
Looking forward to going back next month.

The value for the money is very good. The taste and quality of food selections were also very good. Exec chef came around to the tables to ensure everyone was pleased. That went a long way with me. I also liked where we were seated (2nd tier). You can see the races or watch on the television at the table. This was my first time there. Next time, I'll request a seat below so we're able to see the races clearly without looking at the television. I also liked that you can bet at your table, great service, added value for me!
Areas for improvement: the buffet line was long. They're serving a large quantity of people in a limited space, but perhaps there's a way to use the space near the entrance for another buffet line??? Also, I wasn't happy with the wine selection. Had the rose and the prosecco, and didn't love either. I don't want the calories for something I don't love, LOL!!! Lastly, at the price point of $40 each, at least one soft drink should be included.
It was an overall wonderful experience (on Father's Day) and I will return and recommend to others.

lets start with the salad no taste then we move on the the potato salad potato's way to big the pieces and no flavor the coleslaw i get better in a dinner come on now you can do better then that. the mozzarella and tomato was the best thing there. moving on to the meal the burgers looked so dryed out the potato were cold the cheese and butter didn't melt at all, The bbq sauce on the chicken and ribs at least buy something good if your not going to make your own because it wasn't good at all. The meal high light was the mac and cheese and the sliced meat thank god for that. The desserts were great the cake nice the little brownies great and who doesn't like ice cream. Me and pops hit alot of buffets and you guys can do way better spend alittle money its not like the track doesn't make money we love coming to the races but we might stop coming for the food thanks greg

We had a table in Laura's section and she was absolutely fantastic. We had refills on our drinks without even having to ask. The food was good and plentyful and the dessert selection was more than we were accustomed to seeing. Dennis and his crew did a phenomenal job on Saturday night. Thank you to everyone for making our outing a very enjoyable one. Thank you also to Dawn, their wonderful hostess, for setting us up at a table in a quaint location with a great view of the track.

Food was cold and tasteless. When we walked in the person who was in charge of reservations was rude. When asked if we could switch tables she said no very abruptly and dismissive. There were pleanty of empty tables and still remained empty by the time we left. You would think for 40 dollars a person the food would be delicious and hot and the people would be nicer. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
