    we had a great time! The Restaurant was quite busy when we arrived so we had to wait a few minutes to get a table, but it was worth it. Our Server was very attentive, the food was excellent and we had a great time I'm looking forward to our next evening out

    I have been dining at the Steakhouse for years and for the most part it has been quite consistent. A lovely, quiet dining room, great service and good food. Its a nice respite from the noisy casino. Was impressed with the summer prime rib special.

    The filet was flavorful and melted like butter in my mouth. The lobster bisque was delicious and rich. Service was excellent. Always available, but not annoying or hovering. Only downside was the casino outside the restaurant was smokey. That is the only way to enter the restaurant. There was no trace of smoke in the restaurant.

    I don't why my expectations were low, but I was SO impressed with our meal at Steak House that I've been telling people that it is absolutely a destination dining spot. Casey and I agreed that the Hollandaise sauce accompanying the asparagus was the best we'd had - ever, anywhere. Veggies were fresh, crisp and delicious, the parmesan crusted steak fries were planks of yummy goodness and the prime rib and New York Strip were both very flavorful and done to a turn. I will be going back as soon as the occasion presents itself.

    Made our first visit to this steakhouse to try the Prime Rib special when celebrating a family birthday. The restaurant is large and well appointed and doesn't have the feel of being in a casino. Seats were comfortable, all service was great. Primary server was outstanding. We enjoyed the early portions of the meal but when main course was served the food quality was not up to par-food was at varying temperatures, leaning towards cold as if some items had been sitting around waiting too long before serving. Birthday dessert was a nice touch -very good taste and presentation. We will consider coming back and hope for main course to reach higher level, consistent with the other elements.

    Dined on 7/9/2014
    Food was poor quality, meat was dry, flavorless and overcooked. Asked for a scoop of plain ice cream with nuts and Andrew stated he didn't believe they had nuts, but wanted to know if you wanted chocolate syrup and we stated it needed to be plain. When ice cream came out it had chocolate syrup on it. The appetizer was cooked correctly and tasted good - bacon wrapped shrimp. The person that was filling the water glasses had to keep going to get Andrew to come back to our table to wait on us. We will never and have no desire to go back to the restaurant since the entrees and service were very poor.

    The entire dining experience was very positive. Although i was hesitant about going, due to fear of being disappointed once again. The Steakhouse met, if not exceeded all expectations. The servers were absolutely refined. They were extremely observant and were able to meet our needs before being asked. Water was always full, plates removed almost immediately upon finishing a course and the next course was brought out immediately after. The meals were appropriately priced. You pay for taste presentation and service. I would recommend this establishment again.

    Dined on 7/5/2014
    They brought my wife a salad with only the stock to Romaine lettuce. My salad (house) was the actual leaf to the Romaine lettuce, extra for a salad with a poor cut of rib eye (fat lots of fat, 50% fat) steak that cost $36.00. When my wife told the waiter her salad was not Romaine he said yes it is and argued. (they did take her salad off the ticket) I ordered medium and my steak was medium well to well (light pink in the very middle of the steak and tough around the edges). We asked for loaded bake potato's and they brought a small plate with a t-spoon of cheese, sour cream, big pieces of bacon and butter, no onion. At this point I didn't want to ask for onion, it might turn into a argument. Waited 20 minutes for the check. $112.00 T

    We were watching the clock & the waiter & staff gave good service on a timely basis getting us out in good time. Friendly, attentive service, good food, reasonable prices. The only demerit was a slight problem of negotiating through all the slot machines to get to the restaurant.

    Excellent meal - my companion had a ribeye that you could cut with the fork, and my Steak Diane was wonderful. The meal began with a very tasty little tapa before we even ordered. The basket of bread offered a few different types of rolls and regular and flavored butters. I had the house green salad and it was fresh and the blue cheese dressing was very good. The steaks came with some very good fresh mashed potatoes and fresh veggie. We were too full to have dessert but watched a couple tables enjoy the fancy presentation of a flaming something!! Wonderful experience, and we'll do it again!

    Don't be fooled when you walk in to the casino. It is a smoked filled place that is a real turn off. However, when you walk in to the restaurant, the entire atmosphere changes. It is a really nice place with some outstanding food. The waiters are incredibly accommodating as well. Highly recommend to anyone that wants a fantastic meal in Tucson.

    we have dined here several times and the food is always excellent. However the last two times our service has been somewhat disappointing. Both times they have brought our entrees before we are ready.. This last time we had just started our soup. Our server only came back to check on things when we were finished with our meal. We always go here for special occasions but one more try and we will have to find another "special spot"

    Although the food was better than average, the high prices, limited entree selection and lo-ong wait time would give me pause before choosing to eat here again. We've dined there several times in the past and in most of our more recent experiences, the service was below average and slow. This time, our dinner arrived almost one full hour into service. My Steak Diane was very good but my wife's Steak & Lobster arrived merely warm. And neither had much flavor. The waitress forgot about my cocktail, which appeared to have been sitting at the bar for quite some time as the ice was almost melted by the time she brought it over. The boring menu's remained unchanged the past several visits, except for the rising prices. Not Recommended.

    We went to The Steak House on Easter for our Wedding Anniversary. We went there hoping to order one of their delicious steaks from the regular menu but found they were only serving Easter Brunch. We went ahead and had the Brunch and my disappointment soon turned to one more reason we love The Steak House so much. Everything we had was delectable especially the grilled Prime Rib, seasoned mashed potatoes and green beans that came directly from the kitchen chefs. The Brunch display, where we helped ourselves, was fabulous and so was the dessert table. It was hands down the best Brunch we have ever had and would not hesitate to go again.

    Been here 2 weeks before said it was one of the better meals we had. We had recommended this place for our party of 6. Open table did not tell us it was a brunch. The food was not the quality we had expected,not werth the money, had a steak two nights later at another restaurant, was excellent for a little more than half the price. Probably will not return.

    Such a refreshing change from Agave. I will always drive the extra distance to eat at the Steak House over Agave. Service was so much better at your location. Food was better as well. You should have the manager of the steak house teach the manager of agave the ropes. I live in sahuarita.

    The tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the lobster bisque was wonderful. I was not impressed with the bannas foster. The sauce was not cooked long enough to carmelize, and the liquer was added to soon and too much so the dish came out like alcohol soup with banana chunks.

    My date ordered the coconut shrimp they were tough and very fishy tasting service was very poor offering alternate choices so she asked for a salad and they had to find raspberry dressing in another place. when my bill came they said I owed more than the bill I told them their was supposed to be a sixty dollar comp from the players club. after a long time and several conversations the said they would work it out with the players club. I asked if my club points would be returned. they could not confirm that they would.

He took our drink and food orders and never saw him again until after my boyfriend and I had finished our meals. Was never checked on to see how everything was and never had our drinks refilled. Food was alright compared to the price that was paid. Had better steaks at Texas roadhouse.
