It was disorganized. Didn't know where to go to get drink tickets. Lines long at all beer booths and especially food boths which were only two. It had nothing to do with Oktoberfest, no German music or very few costumes. It was a total bust and...continued

Get the VIP. Unlimited beer and food and an abundance of places to sit.

Last year was better. This year they didn't had less food and beer samples in the VIP. The pretzel was ok this year as well. The atmosphere was nice and the food trucks outside the oktoberfest area were awesome.

Terrible. Very unorganized and not a lot of directoion of where to go to get your food, etc. Once we got there there was NO FOOD LEFT! Yep, only beer. Am not happy and thinking twice about using goldstar again for this type of even.

They were stingy on filling up the beers. You could buy on site the same individual items for less. Entertainment was so-so. Not enough shade umbrellas to sit and relax. The stein is a cheap plastic cup. Very disappointing event. However,...continued

Fun, but very hot day- the beer was excellent- a bit pricey- bands were great- Gambling is a waste of time.

The event ended at 7 pm, so why did they run out of beer by 4pm??? Whatever brew was left over was hot , and they refused to fill up the beer Stein! We had to pay for a small cup and pour it in the stein. What a waste!

It was all outdoors with little shade. There was a good turnout, but the lines got longer as the event went on. If you go next year, I recommend to go early as they ran out of some beers by 3:30 pm.

Went with my sons. Had a blast. Kids are free and the event itself was a blast. Get the vip package it's worth it. There were so many beers to taste. Have water and sunscreen. You will need it.

The event was ok - there wasn't enough seating for those who were eating their meals which caused a lot spillage - and wish that there had been more music - kindof lost the Oktoberfest feeling pretty quickly.

Plastic mug was disappointing for VIP $. If you are going just to drink beer great deal otherwise not great view of race and mug should be stein.

The beer was great - nice selections. The food at the Dog Haus was unacceptable. The Wurst should have been a brat or bockwurst but was more like a spicy polish sausage with very thick casing. The tater tots were undercooked and inedible. The...continued

It wasn't as exciting as I hoped. It was very blah, just a bunch of tables & white tents, we stayed for prob 2 hrs., tried a couple of beers & a sausage. It wasn't the Oktoberfest experience I was looking for, will not go next year.

They didn't have enough people working the event, so the lines for everything (food, beer) were crazy long. We spent an hour in line just to get food. Also they ran out of a few food items - and we were there early - we arrived at 1:00pm - so...continued
