Overall Dan Rooney's was a
Overall Dan Rooney's was a great restaurant. Our waiter, Arthur, was wonderful. Anything we wanted, he was there in a second. The food, superb. We really had a great meal. However, as entertaining as the dueling pianos were, the hostess wanted to sit us right on top of them and they were so loud there wouldn't have been any way we could even have a good meal. My chair was literally, almost touching one of the piano players. Not a good place to put a table of six. We waited for about 15 minutes which was fine and was seated at a booth in another part of the restaurant which was perfect. All in all, this place should do really well.

I took my mom and Aunt for Mother's day. They had the burger so I had the rotisserie chicken. They both don't eat hamburgers that often but loved it. I never had chicken by the pound so I didn't really understand it. I was a little disappointed by the chicken but I finished my mom's burger and that was great.

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted to go out for dinner. He suggested we go to this restaurant because we have been passing it and seeing it at Empire State Casino. We looked on line at the menu and decided to try it. They also validated our parking ticket to valet park. (A little bonus with a meal.) We made reservations for 6 that evening and arrived a few minutes early. No problem they sat us down right away in a private booth, They are all private booths. Our waiter came over a few minutes later and gave us a good choice when we asked him about a certain wine. He recommended a great wine. I asked about the halibut and he also answered all my questions. It was a great dinner, Arthur our waiter was great!

We still talked about the meal the next day; that is when you know you truly enjoyed dinner. Oh, and dessert was delicious too!
Wait staff were pleasant also. I'm tired of going to establishments and interacting with surly, annoyed wait staff but that was not the case here. Definitely will go back again.

Only Sure thing at Empire City
Great food, great service and energetic atmosphere make for a excellent experience at Dan Rooney's. My wife and I do not gamble but we wanted to check out Empire City. Not impressed with the slots or video roulette we looked for something to eat and were pleasantly surprised. The Rooney burger is the best. So good we came back to EC just for Rooney's. We valet the car and Rooney's is right there when you enter. Spend $50 and they cover the valet. Try the open turkey sandwich it's awesome. Sports fanatics will be impressed with the table side personal tv's and the 20 other tv's that surround the restaurant. We will be back to EC, not for the slots but for the Rooney's.

Well prepared food. The rotisserie chicken was very flavorable. Can't beat the value for eats and service.

Dinner on a Friday evening was a nice surprise. We have visited Dan Rooney's for lunch before but never dinner. We were seated right away and the manager saw how busy our waiter was snd quickly came over to take our order. He made us feel very welcome and even covered dessert when one of our orders was delayed. He didn't have to, but it was a very nice and appreciated thing to do.
We enjoyed our meals while watching the live feed from the trotters. A very enjoyable evening.

Good pre-gambling meal!
Burgers, ribs and sandwiches were tasty. Live music Saturday nights is a plus.

Really well done design. Lead and bass guitarists played. TVs all around, including at your table to watch the races or game. the nachos are better than average, with chunks of avocado on them as well. The tab beers are a nice selection, and are always crisp, fresh and cold. The burgers are award winning, and taste like it. The ribs that my buddy had looked, and he said we very good.
You sit well, and are well looked after.

Casino Pub Fare
First time dining at Rooneys. The waitress was very pleasant and overall we received very good service. A fairly good selection of brews. Ordered nachos and potato popper for apps. Potato was excellent and plenty of them. Nachos were not typical--with very little meat; but good nonetheless. My husband and I had hamburgers--not too much to mess up there. The meat was tasty, but mine was overcooked compared for what I asked for. I would like to go back to try different items.
