The Trackside Restaurant is located in West Gosford on the corner of the Central Coast Hwy and Mans Road and is attached to a Domayne department store. For quite a while now the fact that it was attached to the Domayne lead me to overlook the place as a place to go and eat, however after seeing the Stone Grill cooking sign we eventually decided to give it a go.
Aside from being attached to the department store, the building is quite nice to look at from the outside. It reminds me a bit of the American style strip mall restaurant with lots of glass and palm trees. Inside, as if the name weren’t enough to give it away, the motor racing theme really comes into its own. The displays of authentic racing cars and racing memorabilia are impressive without being overpowering.
As a side note, the place seemed to be very child friendly. There is a kid’s play room and all of the staff were very nice to our daughter.
If I did have to make a criticism of the appearance of the place, I’d have to say it was the large flat screen TV’s that they had going. As it’s a motor racing themed venue I’d have assumed that if they did have to put something on that it would be motor sport related. Instead, the screens just seemed to have an endless loop of ads for what was on in the restaurant on the other days of the week. I guess this isn’t normally too bad but our table was right under one of the screens.
