A word from Great Plains Cattle Company - Ameristar Casino
With its soaring main dining area, with weathered crossbeams of old barn timber and wagon-wheel chandeliers, the Great Plains Cattle Company at Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City pays homage to the rough-and-ready past of the American West. But the experience of dining here, in seats of distressed leather and among classic western art, is unexpectedly refined. Choose from such favorites as our Campfire Shrimp, Cedar Plank Salmon and Trail Boss Rib Eye -- and don’t forget to peruse our well-chosen wine list. A private dining room is available.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The steaks and sides were perfect. They have a nice selection of wines also."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The food and ambiance was good however our order was lost and we waited and extended time to receive our meals. The manager did come to our table and apologized for the problem and when asked to compt one of the meals was more than happy to do so. I felt due to the wait, I should not have had to ask for one or both of the meals to be compt. In his defense, he did offer a free desert but I felt that was not enough compensation for our long wait to receive our food."

  • "I was disappointed in my bone in strip. It was not very flavorable or tender. The salad was drenched in dressing. The desserts seemed to be frozen and not fresh. I would not go to this restaurant again."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised at how amazing not only the service was at this resturant but our steaks! Both were 5 star, and our server; a lovely lady treated us like VIP! My advice: this is worth the drive and the dumpy casino location!"

  • "My husband loves this place so for his birthday we meet two other couples. Server was bad, at these prices I expect an upgrade in service from a chain steakhouse. He took the order and brought salad but not near enough for six. We were served our meal and were checked in once after we were well into the meal. My steak was fantastic but my husband said the prime rib was not as good as usual, everyone else loved the food though. Most of us had adult beverages and we were never asked if we would like another. I don't like someone to over do it ,but this guy disappeared and not much personality. For the price per plate I prefer better service. Last your bathroom smells bad which was surprising because it looked so clean and nice."

  • "The food was good but a little pricey. We had an onion ring appetizer that was a little short on onion rings for the price. Our waiter came up a little short on service but was adequate."

  • "This was my first visit. I'll surely be back. I was very impressed. What's more, it was my surprise for my wife on our anniversary, and she was impressed. The whole drive there, my mouth was watering thinking about what steak I would order. Then the server described an off-the-menu special of a pan-fried walleye. I tried that instead of steak and it was absolutely delicious. My wife loved her steak and everything else on the table was excellent. Just Great all the way around! Hint: If its romantic you're looking for, ask them to seat you in front of the fireplace."

  • "I have eaten here many times. Friday the food was very good (as usual) but service by waiter was slow (not usual). Main waiter seemed very distracted while his assistant was much more attentive and in fact better suited to be main waiter."

  • "Steve was our server and he was very good. The steaks were fatty, salad wilted, broccoli caps with nasty tasting sauce . Extremely overpriced for terrible quality."

  • "I have had dinner at Great Plains many times in the past few years, All I can say is, they are awesome. Love the ambience, food is great, steaks outstanding. Service is awesome. Have touted Great Plains from my first visit. Friends and family say the same. We took our parents there for their 50th anniversary. Of the many places to eat in Kansas City, they are one of my favs. They are better than others I have been to, that cost way more."

  • "We love coming to The Journey's -- it's been on our favorites list for many many years now... while they have had staff changes over that time - they have kept their core group that keeps making this the place for us to come back to again and again... From Jake to Cherise, to Kelly to Joyce, to Chef Omar -- we love the special attention and care they all give and the great dining experience that we get from it. Tonite it was Joyce - who is always a compassionate and selfless Hostess... she knows what we like and how we like it! Her attention to our personal preferences is commendable and appreciated. Even when we change things up, like I wanted to try a different wine tonite, Joyce knew exactly what I was wanting. We are Blessed."

  • "one in our party had the crab risotto which was mushy and did not taste like fresh crab and the up charge of 10 dollars was a bit much. All that ate the prime rib were very satisfied, it has always been our favorite. I wish they would bring back the 22 oz bone in prime rib dinner. One had the Hamburger and it was very dry and over seasoned. Other than that the service was fantastic as always and the whole experience was top notch."

  • "The decor is very nice. The service was great. I dropped my fork and didn't have to wave anyone down. They were right there. I had the filet and it was cooked just as I ordered. It is expensive but good for a change of pace."

  • "We went for our 34th Wedding Anniversary . My husband BBQ Ribs (Full) was ok but the baked potato was cold and not soft. The butter did not melt on the potato. My 7 oz Filet was not good at all. It look bad when Steve brought it to the table. Would not recommend this restaurant to my friends or family. We have been there several times and each times its been getting worse. The best part of the meal was our Campfire Shrimp. Very disappointed"

  • "Dined on a Saturday night at 7pm. We were seated right away, but from that point on the service was incredibly slow. My boyfriends food came out without part of the meal. The waiter said he was going to get it and 10 minutes later still had not returned. The manager subtracted that from our bill, but overall either the kitchen or the service has serious time management issues. While there we heard two other tables also complaining about issues. Too bad because the food and atmosphere were decent. Seems like they were not prepared to be busy on a Saturday night."

  • "We repeat: --> Rare is a tandem so good, such as this... Not since Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid eh? Bobby can whip up some FANTASTIC recipes that will always make your mouth water... and Steve -- the MASTER "hote de table" -- will serve it up with the greatest smile and cordial entertainment you could ever ask for. WE keep coming back - because when something is GOOD -- why change it! 5 Stars! Thanks"

  • "We spent the weekend at the Amerstar for our anniversary. We decided to try The Great Plains Cattle Co. for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter was great. He explained in detail the items we were interested in. We were seated in front of the fireplace which was great. My wife had ribs which were fall off the bones great. I had the filet Oscar. It was also great. We have had better but not by much. Pricing was fair for what you get."
