Great Place to Dine

My wife and I went to Fairbanks
My wife and I went to Fairbanks for the 45th anniversary of the day we met. Our food and service were excellant, with our waitperson making great recommendations. The glass of house wine we each ordered were very well priced, and of excellant vintage. We have dined here several times and have never been dissapointed. A table looking out over the Fox River provides a nice view despite the roof of the casino in the forefront. We were treated to a desert for our anniversary.

We have been there many times before, having excellent food and service, but this time our service was just fair.

Fairbanks Steak House
Not as good as when it fist opened but still great steaks! The waitress and crew were very attentive and friendly..went above and beyond to make the evening lovely. I used to love the prime rib..still fine but not fantastic. I don't know whether they changed the cut but it used to fill the plate and I had plenty to take home. Still had leftovers but not as much as before. Will go back for special occasions....but will order the steak.

Our waiter was outstanding.
Our waiter was outstanding. Our prime rib had been over cooked and rather than presenting it to us, quietly asked if we would accept a substitute. The rib eye steak was served as we requested. He was atttentive without hovering.

Great service from Lee and staff
The Colorado lamb chops were cooked perfectly medium rare.
Enjoyed the onion soup and our salads.
Ask for a half salad, they are large.
Lee took great care of us, she is the best.
We took lots of leftovers home.

Food fit for a casino
We normally visit the casino in Elgin, but for a change we decided to travel to Aurora. The gambling was just as bad here as in Elgin so we looked forward to the steakhouse for dinner. It turned out to be an excellent choice. The wives split the New York steak and were extremely happy with their choice. I had the seafood daiviola and it was very good though the scallops were a little dry. My friend had two shellfish appetizers that he was crazy about.
The wine choice of the house Cabernet was excellent.
Our waiter was quick courteous and knowledgeable. A great dining experience at a reasonable price.

The service was especially notable. The portions were almost too large for one person, but cooked to perfection. Will be returning very soon.

Dinner and a show
We had a show to attend at the Paramount. The waiter knew this and addressed it with us. Unfortunately the timing of the food wasn't very good and we had to rush through our main meal. The fried calamari is definitely better than the grilled calamari, which was very rubbery. I had the Chilean Seabass. It was cooked to perfection and was tender. My husband had the filet mignon. It was also cook to his liking but lacked in flavor/seasoning. The presentation was a steak on a plate. Not even a sprig of parsley accompanied it. They could use a lesson in presentation. We didn't have time for dessert. I would attend again for the quality of the food and its proximity to the Paramount Theatre. The service was very good except for timing.

Decent, flavorful filet mignon, if but somewhat overpriced. Nice atmosphere for couples.

Above Average Steakhouse
Made an impromptu decision to dine here after getting a promotion on Thursday, November 21st. My wife had over $100 in comps, so we figured we would try it out. She had two patron-based cocktails and I had two glasses of wine. Not an extensive wine list, but it sufficed. I had the Baked Onion Soup...very good. My wife had an 8oz filet and a baked potato which were very good. I had the cajun ribeye which came with Louisiana hash browns, which was my only regret. It was basically one big patty of flavorless hash browns and was very oily. The ribeye was great, but should have opted for garlic mashed or a baked potato. We split a serving of asparagus as well. I probably would not go out of my way to go back, but still was good.
