    4th trip here and it was great as always. The rubs on the steaks as well as the steaks are excellent. Our steaks were cooked to our order. If you want a GREAT side, order the Bourbon Creamed Corn With Parmesan Crust. It is one of the reasons we go.

    Dined on 4/30/2011
    The Final Cut is inside the Hollywood Casino. Our friends had told us that this steakhouse equalled Jeff Ruby's steaks and their favorite- Mortons. My husband stated that the strip steak was excellent! And that's hard for him to rate anything excellent other than a Jeff Ruby's steak! I have researched/eaten in steak houses from NYC to San Francisco with Vail, Aspen, Chicago, The Biltmore etc. & no other compared according to him (I'm a vegetarian for 48 years). So check it out for an "excellent" steak! Many staff have worked in several Jeff Ruby restaurants from Belterra to Cincinnati ones. The atmosphere, however, is NOT a sophisticated atmosphere! The server was overly friendly, even sat in our booth due to the loud noises!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/23/2011
    Overall the meal was ok. Felt a little pricy for the quality of the food. We had 2 filets order MR and Medium and they came out being cooked the exact same. The asparagus side dish was $6 for 5 pieces. It was good but come on... The lobster bisque which is one of my favorite dishes, was too thick and not as sweet as it should be. The house salad was excellent and I would suggest it. The creme brûlée was excellent. The service was helpful but not intrusive. She kept a nice distance to allow us to talk and we didn't feel rushed which was nice. Overall if you are there it is an ok meal but I wouldn't suggest making a special trip for it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/10/2011
    Everything was wonderful. The tempura shrimp was out of this world. I am not a fan of seafood but the sauce served with the dish was amazing. A bit of honey and perhaps chipolte and brown sugar. The wedge salad, not just a quarter of a head of lettuce, this was dressed perfectly. Chrisp with the diced tomato and the blue cheese, topped with ranch. The combo brought it all together. The steak, cut with your fork melt in your mouth tender, charred just the right amount cooked to perfection. The baked potato is large enough to share. All in all well worth the drive for me!

    My wife and I both had fillets. They were cooked to perfection and were possibly the best steaks we have ever had. The Bearnaise sauce was flavorful and creamy. The side items, asparagus and three cheese potatoes, were also perfectly cooked and pleasantly flavorful. It was early when we got there so we had the entire dining room to ourselves to sit, talk, enjoy the food and celebrate our anniversary. For dessert we shared a Creme brulees that was superb, with a perfectly caramelized topping. Matt M. our waiter was attentive but not overly so, just right.

    This meal left a lot to be desired, I do not recommend dining here and will not return. Server (Ian) forgot lobster tail, and then proceeded to make us feel bad because he brought it out half way through our meal and we no longer wanted it. Tempura shrimp appetizer was soggy and bland. House steak sauce tasted terrible ($3) extra, for what tasted like Worcestershire sauce and cocktail sauce mixed together. Server didn't recognize my friend's birthday even though it was on the reservation. He had a terrible attitude and left check on table without a check presenter. What an awful experience.

    EXCELLENT FOOD and preparation! Steak was seasoned and prepared to perfection with high quality beef. Oysters on the half shell were fresh and very large. Large chunks of lobster were found in the bisque. The service left a lot to be desired. Cocktails were extremely skimpy - looked like less than a shot at ~$8 a pop! Ambiance was too bright for a high-end restaurant with too much visibility of the hillbillies going in and out of the Casino.

    Food was outstanding. Service could have been better. Ordered some drinks before we got our meal but didnt recieve the drinks until we was almost done with our meal. Would of been nice to have the drinks while eating our meal. Over all the food was excellent, the service was not to great. Made reservations and the greeter asked if we had reservations then proceded to take a phone call in the middle of taking my name(which I feel is rude, phone call could of been put on hold) and server wasnt promt with making sure if everything was ok.

    Have to start by saying I'm a food snob. I travel the country for work and have eaten at 100's of the best steakhouses. I read many of the "just okay" reviews for this restaurant, but my wife has never been to the new Hollywood Casino, so we gave Final Cut a try. The hostess wasn't engaged and asked our name 3 times, but things got MUCH better after we were seated. Jeff, our sever, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The wine list was perfect and so were our steaks. I had the bone in ribeye, spinach salad and my wife had the filet with bisque. Both tasted AMAZING and were cooked perfectly. I put them at the same level at Morton's or Ruth's Chris. The Waterfront still has the best steaks in town, but you will enjoy the Final

    The food was very delicious. Everything was cooked as ordered and there were no issues in regard to food. The service is lousy. The resturant was not busy, we arrived at 8:20 and there were 4 tables in our section being utilized. Immediately after we were sat, another couple sat in a booth accross from ours. They recieved their drinks, ordered dinner, and recieved their appetizers before anyone came to our table to take a drink order or give us a menu. It seemed as our waiter was not informed we were sitting in the section. We were given bread and water when we sat down by a hostess. It didn't seem that our table was checked on often. From the time we placed our order until we left, our server approaced our table 3 times,once for the bill

The food came out hot & timely & our orders were properly prepared. The portions were just right & the sides could be shared. The only negative we had was the horseshoe booth seating arrangement. We felt like we were on stage. However it made easy access for the wait staff & easy to get in & out of the booth. I'd definitely return.

    I ordered salmon with fingerling potatoes and asparagus. The salmon was delicious, but the fingerling potatoes (one potato sliced in half...you know how tiny a fingerling potato is!) were dry (due to overbaking) and tasteless. The asparagus (3 spears) was very, very hard (not cooked at all). The spears were very large (smaller spears are more tender to begin with) so it compounded the "tough" issue. The wine list had very few California wines, if you're looking for California you'll be disappointed.
