Im very very satisfied and will surely come back for more..i higly recommend it to my friends..5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than Duane's at Mission InnI have to say that this place is near the top of my list for steak!
I have been to many places and this place is a hidden gem among the casino slots on the second floor.
Was able to reserve a table quickly and upon arrival was greeting in the most friendly manner.
The little things go a long way at a nice restaurant.
Not a single snob in the house.
Waitress and staff were the best.
The food was excellent and the price is the best around for an excellent steak.
And no sales tax!
Go there today, tomorrow, or your next chance.
Ask for Rebecca to be your server and you will not be disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemWho knew that within the casino was a great restaurant? Food was reasonably priced, well presented and delicious. The decor and service was great as well. Both the prime rib and filet mignon were both prepared as requested and very tender.The pre-fixe Cinco de Mayo special was a great deal. What more could one ask for except for the restaurant to be open the whole week?5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you Rebecca.Thank you Rebecca for your amazing service.

Great atmosphere to start, and had a great server named rebbeca! Had great help from all the employees at the pines!! My experience just kept on getting better. Food was mouth watering and delicious. Had tickets to see a show at the casino also , but time was getting close for show to start. Still had dessert coming and was worried about being cutting it to close and being able to enjoy our dessert. So our great server rebbeca made arangements for us to come back after the show to enjoy our desserts. Wow talk about great service overall. Very pleased with all staff, its gonna help me not think twice about coming back to the pines! Thanks agian.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite placesOne of my favorite places to dine. Prefer the pines over Duane's. only wish it was open every day of the week.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is great, wait personsFood is great, wait persons wonderful. Only complaint was the bar service was very very slow. Even getting our first drink order served was long. Subsequent orders almost didn't get there until we were done with the meal. Don't know if the delay was the wait staff or the bartender. The house signature martini is to die for!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA very fine restaurant withA very fine restaurant with excellent service and food. Waitresses Cynthia & Amanda? provided outstanding service along with the bus boy and other waitress (unfortunately I did not get their names). We dined on Thursday April 18, 2013 around 5:30 P.M.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, decorFood was delicious, decor was tasteful, would never know you were in a casino. Worth every penny. Great for a romantic or special occasion dinner.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHours are limited, pricesHours are limited, prices are comparable, service is great. I would rather go there and pay the $$$ than suffer the buffet or the lines at the food court.
They should try to attract clientele outside of casino players or move location closer to high rollers or high limits or have an outside entrance bypassing the casino for clientelle not there for gambling. There must be a neighborhood close by they can attract.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPining for The PinesThe Pines is what I would call a fundamentally sound, upper-tier dining experience. No real flaws, but nothing that is amazing or unique. The service was good, the atmosphere nice, and the food quality generally excellent. I particularly am impressed with the crab cakes appetizer, as well as the flavor and tenderness of the filet mignon. You cannot go wrong having an intimate dinner or a small group occasion at The Pines. If I were to point out one thing that could use improvement, it would be menu variety. But an excellent choice overall.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe chose the Prix Fixe dinnersWe chose the Prix Fixe dinners and we were not disappointed. I had the french onion soup for my first course, so yummy. I decided on try the Salmon Vera Cruz for my main course, the fish was tasty and cooked to perfection. The third and final course I chose Peanut Butter Pie, my husband chose the Cheesecake, both were excellent. I will say that the next time I will get the cheesecake, it is my new favorite.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoy the Pines.We really enjoy the Pines. The food is great and so is the service.
