Diner Reviews
  • "The bone in Ribeye is great, my friend had the Walleye special and ate every bite. Between the appetizers , meal and side dish we were stuffed. The desert cart looked great but we had no room."

  • "I was skeptical going in to eat here as I thought it may just be a glorified restaurant because it was in the casino. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that nothing was further from the truth. My date and I ordered the entree for 2 deal that they offer and chose the filet 3 ways. We split a bowl of the lobster bisque soup and ordered crab cakes as an appetizer. EVERYTHING was absolutely amazing. Fillets were cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. The soup was fantastic, very flavorful with great texture and with a lump lobster claw. Crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had, seasoned perfectly with all delicious lump crab meat and no filler. Service was good as well, very classy people and scenario. Slow service though."

  • "The food was good, but not outstanding for the price. The waitress was friendly but rushed and it took us two hours to get drinks, appetizers and our entrees. I wanted dessert, but that would have been another hour I am sure. If you have an evening with nothing to do and you don't mind waiting it is a very nice restaurant."

  • "The only critique I have is on the reservation wait. We we we planned the night to include many activities and had to change plans due to being seated a half hour after our reservation time. Our server was amazing, making up somewhat for the inconvenience."

  • "We went to William B's Steakhouse for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. They were great about having open availability, as we had to change our scheduled time initially. They got us right in, and seated us. Our food arrived promptly and the staff was nice. The steak that I had for dinner was hands down, the BEST steak I've had in my life, unfortunately the food was all very pricey and there wasn't a very large selection. I would only go here again to eat a steak, but not to go to try something different because the steak was almost the only thing on the menu that I wanted to try."

  • "We dined at the restaurant on a Thursday evening. We enjoyed a quiet table in the back of the restaurant. We loved the warm rolls, but had to ask twice for more to be brought out. Lobster bisque soup was good, but in the bottom of the bowl were crab pieces and not lobster as we expected. It ruined the taste of the soup. When we reported the crab to the waiter, who had called the meat crab meat as he set the bowls in front of us, he denied that it was crab meat and rather meat of a lobster. The French onion soup was excellent. The duck with cherry sauce was delicious as well, as was the lobster alfredo. We would return if we had a different waiter and would not order the lobster "crab" bisque again."

  • "I was told the specials but not the price which was not a problem until my bill arrived the "special", the 10 oz filet, was not a special it was the same price as the menu listed! When I questioned the waiter about this, he stated, "I know it is the same price but that is what we were told to offer" !!!!! NOT A SPECIAL!!!!!!!"

  • "We had Patti, She did a phenomenal job. We had a spill and she acted quickly. For being an upscale restaurant, she didn't rush us at all, we enjoyed every bit of our meal. There were times where we had dirty dishes and Patti was busy, which we understood, but it wasn't very clear why a couple servers walked by out table and didn't offer to get them off the table. I'm a server myself and I hate seeing people with dirty dishes on the table and help my fellow co-workers, but these servers just smiled at us and kept walking. I think there should be a little more teamwork going on. We really didn't fancy the lighting, it was too dark. If an older person came in there they probably would of needed a flash light just to look at the menu."

  • "My husband and I have now eaten at William B's twice. The food is wonderful and complete dinner price is comparable to any other fine dining steak house. I love the low lighting and the waitstaff are older but very good at their jobs. Love the prime rib, my husband always get the biggest steak and loves it as well. Fun place to treat ourselves when we come to the blue chip to gamble, especially when we win lol."

  • "My wife and I went there for her birthday and our ten year anniversary. We have the bacon wrapped scallops as an appetizer and they were amazing. The bacon was crisp but not burned and the scallops cut like butter. They were they best we ever had and they are my wife's favorite. We had the dinner for two and we chose the Chateaubriand. It was served with small potatoes ans green beans. These were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The Chateaubriand was so tender you only needed a fork. It was perfectly cooked to medium rare as requested and it had a nice grill marks. For desert we had creme burlee that was also perfect. We have never had a better dinner!"

  • "This is probably one of the best restaurants we have dined at within 50 miles of Michigan City. Awesome food. We had the twin lobster tails and the bonein ribeye. They were both awesome. Oh and don't forget to take home a slice of the chocolate cake. To die for."

  • "This was the 6th time my wife and I have dined there. We have always had good meals and a good experience there. This time I had the bouillabaisse and it was great. The only problem with it was the clams, a bit to chewy and tough. The rest of it was excellent. My wife had the Parmesan encrusted walleye. It was not a bad dish but there just wasn't much flavor at all. The fish was bland at best. The dessert was the double fudge cake. It was excellent and twice the size it needed to be."

  • "Great experience! My wife and I attended as an extended Valentines Celebration. We were so impressed with our experience that we have vowed to attend again and will only sit in the section where Sean is the server. This waiter was so pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive that I would prefer not to jinx the experience by dining with anyone else. His knowledge of the Chef's background added to the experience. With every savory bite, my taste buds exploded with flavor. Great dinner, atmosphere, and service."

  • "This is a 5 Star restaurant. Having been in best places across USA, this ranks with the best of best. Menu has just right number of entrees to accommodate every taste. Preparation, even for those with special requests, did not disappoint. Attention to detail from everyone was impeccable. Person named Chris was our waiter and he made you think you were only one he was serving. This was our wedding anniversary celebration so we wanted the best - and we got it. Everything was so clean you would think they just opened. Dine here, relax, enjoy the service, and you will want to return asap. We can hardly wait for our next time!"

  • "This is the first time we have had bad food at this restaurant. The prime rib was dry and tough. It must have been left over from the day before. We should have complained to the manager, but we didn't. The waiter offered to replace it, but we were done eating by then. The chef should not have served the prime rib."

  • "This was our first time at the restaurant. We had an absolutely wonderful time. From the appetizer, to dessert, it was all wonderful! We started with an appetizer of Crab-Cakes.........wonderful!! Lots of chunks of crab meat, not just all breading. We ordered the Dinner for two from the menu and got the Filet 3 ways. One of the best steaks we have ever had! Cooked to perfection, We figured we would get 3 small fillets, but they were 3 large fillets to our delight! The waitress was very attentive and friendly. This place is not cheap, so not somewhere I would go often, but very nice to go for a special occasion. We will be going back in the near future."

  • "We were on a one-night getaway in the new buffalo, Michigan city area and after reading reviews we chose to dine at William B's as we were looking for a nice steakhouse. I have to say it was not what we expected. I have been to many casino steakhouses and all have been enjoyable with excellent service staff and great food. Although the food was good, the service seemed to be inexperienced and untrained. Seemingly not even knowing the menu or proper service technique. In hindsight I wish we would have chosen the Copper Rock Steakhouse at the Four Winds Casino."
