  • Very Disappointed

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    I have had better strip steaks at a fund raiser. The steak was of a poorer quality than a hash house for $29 a la carte. This was our anniversary and I was prepared to drop some money. We even ordered dessert and the salad bar. I like Bernie Kozar very much and I sure hope that only his name is associated with the restauraunt. I was thinking it would be like a Shula's or a sports steak house. Outback is even better.

    Everything was great but I ordered the signature prime rib - 10 oz size. The meat tasted quite good but most of the piece of prime rib was FAT which I discovered as I ate it. instead of taking this off of our bill, he gave us 1 complementary dessert. I will try the restaurant again but not the prime rib.

    We went here for our anniversary not knowing what to expect. We were more than pleased. It was the best steak and scallops we ever ate. Our server was wonderful. Do not like the ala cart but the salad bar was good and well worth the extra $$. We will return again.

    We were seated at table #19, Bernie's table which is used for special occasions, this being my birthday. The salad bar is disappointing, not many choices for veggies. My wife and I both had the Prime Rib special. It is a good deal; salad bar, 8 Oz. Prime rib and a small dessert for $25.00. We also shared a baked sweet potato. It was huge. The prime rib was generous, but not as tasty as I expected. Overall it was a good, not great, meal. The dessert was quite good.

    Ordered fish and it was over cooked. Sent back because time another order to arrive other person in party would be waiting. Didn't take off of bill but got a piece of cake (for my birthday) as a replacement to the fish. Had to wait for bread. Didn't get it until being served dinner. Service was poor (slow).

    Ribeye steak was tough and had no flavor. Salad bar is not worth $15. Salad dressings were not good. Spent $73 on 1 steak a salad bar and 1 appetizer. Left still hungry since I ordered salad bar as entree but didnt even eat a third of whay I had on my plate.

    there were 6 of us. Service was good but food was terrible. 3 of us had the prime rib and it was terribly smoked and did not come out hot. 2 other guests had the fish and it was overcooked. About the only one that really didnt complain was the vegetarian. He had the salad bar and he said it was adequate. When you are spending on the high end, you would expect much better food. Appetizers were so, so, had the tuna and also sausage - like i said, very so so.... I'm a big Bernie fan both professionally and personally - i would suggest that he try out the food, especially the prime rib - i think he would be extremely disappointed - i know we were...Almost $400 for 6 of us and we all felt that Outback Steakhouse was much much better

    Everything was good, except the idea of a salad bar in a fine dining restaurant was strange to me. The salad bar was great, but not a good fit for a white table clothed restaurant. Told the waitress I was trying a new wine on their menu, and she brought out a glass already poured. I expected the bottle to be corked at my table, and given the opportunity for a taste to be sure this is what I desired. Thank goodness the wine was palatable.

    Because the restaurant is in a Casino don't expect a quiet, cozy romantic atmosphere. It is a casual environment that is tastefully decorated with memorabilia from Bernie Kosar's career. The service was very good and the food was very good. I thought it was over priced considering the casual environment, but that is to be expected with it being in a casino.

    The restaurant is very nice and has a comfortable atmosphere. The service was outstanding, never had to wait for drinks or anything we needed. It is a little pricey, but for special occasions who cares. My wife's filet mignon was fantastic, and the lobster Mac and cheese was great. I got the ribeye, and it was cooked perfectly. The only thing with the ribeye was it seemed to have a lot of fat which made it tougher than it should have been. Overall we liked the restaurant.

    I took my fiancé here for his 32nd birthday. He loves prime rib and Kosars did not disappoint!! It had a nice atmosphere--maybe a little loud Bc it opens into the casino, but still pleasant with a nice view of the casino. Staff was pleasant and accommodating!! They even brought him a chocolate cake for his birthday free of charge. Prime rib was excellent, filet cooked as I ordered it. Mostly importly, we enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.

    We have been trying to dine at this restaurant since it opened. We booked a reservation on Open Table and were pleasantly surprised to get a reservation. The service was adequate. The waiter seemed distracted as if he had too many tables. He was, however, very pleasant. The food was excellent with the exception of the brussell sprouts, as they were very tough and laden with garlic. We waited some time for our entres and for our plates to be cleared. For the most part it was a good experience, but we do not like the tables so close that you are hearing each other's conversations. I would rate it a B-. May or may not return.

    We have been to Kosar's several times and each experience was good. Excellent steaks! We like the prime rib special, for $25.00 you get soup and salad bar, huge prime rib and desert, have never been disappointed. Atmosphere is very nice and you can make it a fun night with friends by visiting the casino.

    The restaurant is very nicely decorated, they should have spent the money for a clock for the chef. It took 1 hour and 30 minutes to receive our food, and the kitchen must have been out of spices, very bland. The next time I visit the Rocksino, dinning will be at the buffet, sorry Bernie.

    From the second we arrived the issues began. The hostess station was confused and having issues seating customers with reservations. After a few second wait, we were seated. We had 2 hours until the concert was going to start. Drinks were ordered and came, food was ordered. I infomred the waitress we were going to the concert and she said she would put our food order in right away. 1 hour & 25 minutes later our fodd had still not arrived. I requested the manager and while the waitress was getting her, our food finally arrived. My wife's filet mignon was cold, not warm, COLD. Manager Nikki came over and after interrupting us to tell us we were the only ones with issues offerred to take the steak off the bill. UNACCEPTABLE - poor management

    The food and service were excellent, however my wife and I were in a booth capable of seating six people and it only had access on one side. Too big for two people and not practical for a group when both ends of the booth don't provide access (particularly since there is a salad bar. None of the booths were really made for two people, so they were not what one would call "romatic seating". The service was great and the food was attractive as well as tasty. A big plus for us was that the beverages were frequently filled without us asking for refills. Since it was my wife's birthday, a dessert choice was offered to her by the restaurant. That was a nice touch.

    We came here for my Birthday dinner a couple of weeks ago and it was fantastic. The only detractor if you are on a budget is the sides and salads are all a la cart. The salad bar looks awesome and you can get that all by itself as an all you can eat. The open flame wood fired grill is very cool to see. I had the filet which was perfect however my husband got the flank steak and was a bit dissappointed. We each ordered a side, mushrooms and sauteed spinach which were delicious. We were seated immediately and greeted by Mark, our waiter who was attentive and thoughtful. Will definitely be back!

    Our server, Tricia, started our dining experience off on a very positive note with her friendly and enthusiastic greeting and attentive service all the while tracking our time so we could make an 8pm concert. Our meal started off with the salad bar with its unique daily offerings including the soup du jour, a great chicken corn chowder. Our steak selections and fish of the day were prepared exactly in accordance with our requests. We accompanied our dinner with sides of grilled Brusssel sprouts with bacon and some fantastic lobster mac and cheese. Two sides were plentiful for sharing at our table of four. Our meals were all of high quality and of comparable value to a fine steakhouse.

    We waited a long time for our meals to arrive, then we had to ASK for the check. 45 MINUTES. That's how long it took for the waitress and the manager to figure it out and come back to us. 45 minutes after the meal was over, waiting. We were celebrating our anniversary and mom birthday. It was not a good experience. The food was great. The service was terrible.
