    My boyfriend and I ate at the restaurant Friday November 14th and had the special surf and turf and we had a coupon for $10 off each. If it wasn't for the coupons we would not of been able to take part in this dining experience. The food was flavorful. The staff was very polite. Even though the restaurant is in the casino, the noise level within the restaurant was very minimal. We would love to make this our "special" dining option.

    Thanks Final Cut for another fantastic dinner. This time we brought my dad & his wife for an anniversary & birthday dinner combination. The restaurant filled every one of our requests from location of the table to surprising my dad with some sugar-free birthday desserts. The excellent food and service on top of all that made the night PERFECT! We will be back again soon :)

    Reservation was ready on our arrival. Perfect 2-top table off to side- Nice and quiet for easy conversation. Food was great, App was little late but server stepped up and apologized (Like that she didn't toss anyone under the bus). Food was excellent and I tip the hat to management for putting up a special that was a great value. Will be back again soon.

    The menu and food were very good. Service was slow, long time to be served drinks after being seated. Then, ordered more glasses of wine at the time main course was served, meal was completed, no wine, we canceled the order. My belief is there was not adequate staff to handle the number of tables in service.

    Our server was on top of it! She was very knowledgable about the menu, the wines, and treated us like her only table....but didn't hover. The food was tasty, but they cooked my husband's steak as medium well instead of medium rare. They quickly remedied the situation and were kind about it. We won't be returning, not because of anything the restaurant did wrong or that the food wasn't good, but for the price, we just prefer to go spend it at a different steakhouse. J Gilbert's is our absolute favorite steak place and it has yet to be matched in quality, price, and experience.

    We have eaten at the Final Cut many times since the casino opened over 2 years ago. We have never been disappointed in the quality of the food and service. It's one of the best steakhouses in the KC area! Great for any occasion. Try it just once and you will be a repeat customer. The menu is carefully thought out and many new items pop up from time to time. The Wednesday and Thursday night specials cannot be beat! Enjoy.

The wine list along with the special pricing allowed us to enjoy a wonderful bottle of wine that the manager recommended. We had great service with Tony, Gus and our wonderful server. Thank you very much for a fabulous evening.

    The most disappointing thing about our visit was the customer service. I have worked with the general public my whole career, and the core of a business relying on customers to maintain their business is their service. Even a bad experience with food can be parlayed if the service was excellent. We visit Hollywood casino frequently and usually just go to Epic buffet, but decided to visit Final Cut Steakhouse because it was my birthday. The host asked if we were there for a special occasion and we told him what we were celebrating.

    Went on a Wed night & ordered off the specials menu. Ordered a KC Strip & got a different cut. Both of our orders were good wrong & poorly. They were out of sides (even though it was their first night open for the week & there are several other restaurants in the same building they could have pull food from). Waiter was uniformed & didn't care. I would have received better food for less than half the price at Outback Steakhouse. Ended up giving my dog all the food - that's an expensive dinner for Fido :P Based on this visit, I would NEVER ever go back to Final Cut. Luckily for Final Cut, I have been previously & enjoyed everything from service to food. So, I guess my 3rd visit will confirm which time was an off night :P

    I ordered a 10 oz filet. I ordered it medium well and a baked potato to share with my wife. My filet was more rare than medium well. It was a bright pink in the middle and I could not eat much of it. The baked potato was a normal sized potato not really large enough for sharing. I probably should have sent it back but at this point we had already been waiting 45 minutes for our food. The waiter did apologize several times for our wait and offered to buy us dessert. We declined the offer.

    I was very unimpressed with the Final Cut Steak House. Prices are way to high. $36 dollars for a steak that comes with no sides is absurd. The place is nice but pricea fir what you get is way below standards. I do not recommended this restaurant.

    My mom just finished her last round of Chemotherapy so my brothers and I wanted to celebrate the occasion somewhere nice. I've been here before so the decision wasn't hard. We had an awesome time. The food and wine second to none. We were also able to get our favorite waiter for this occasion which is Gus. If your going ask to have Gus be your waiter. He's second to none as well. My mom had a great night and I think she even won some money. Thanks to everyone at the Final Cut Steakhouse.

    Dined on 7/3/2014
    Since I've grown up and lived in KC all my life, I rarely ever venture to a Casino for great steak. There are just too many local favorites like Jess & Jims, Hereford House & J Gilberts that always deliver a great steak. BUT, we decided to give the Final Cut steakhouse a try after some heavy persuasion, and I am SO GLAD that we did. This steakhouse is absolutely beautiful from the bar to the placemats, and the view has got to be the best there is if you're up for a sneak peak at the Kansas Speedway infield. I would not say that their steaks are better than the others in KC but they are right up there with the others, but you can't get a better KC Strip in the area for the prices they have on Wed & Thurs (special nights).

    I would love to give this restaurant a 4-5 star across the board but the service was not what I expected for the price. It took quite a while for our waiter to come to our table for even an introduction. There were a few items that the waiter said he would bring but we ended up needing to ask for them later when he didn't. He was very courteous but slow in responding to our needs. For the price I would expect a little more. Otherwise the food was exceptional and the view of the speedway was very nice.

    The Final Cut is a great place to celebrate the special occasions of our lives. We've been twice now with friends to celebrate first a wedding anniversary, and then a retirement. The food was wonderful, the staff very friendly and professional. We are pleased to have such a nice restaurant so close to us.

    Our steaks were perfectly cooked. Definitely worth coming to this steakhouse for the delicious steaks. They were also kind enough to ask if it was a special occasion. They generously treated us to a wonderful bread pudding dessert for our anniversary. This would be a place that I would definitely come back to again and again.

    I have been here before, and usually enjoyed it. Not this time. There have been changes to the menu, wine list, and specials recently... some of those changes REALLY negatively effect the dining experience. For instance, the 'new' bread choice - cheap and visually unappetizing... The whole experience definitely was a step down from previous dinners - Too bad they didn't lower the process to match the lower quality.

    The Thursday evening special was incredible for $24.99. The waitress went over the entire menu and didn't mention the two dinner specials for the evening. I booked the reservation through Open Table and looked at the menu online and I thought about the Surf and Turf special all day long and was disappointed that I had to ask if the special was offered.
