    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/21/2014
    I loved the feel of the restaurant! It was decorated in an extremely elegant manner, using a lot of gorgeous onyx. We had two waiters, Shawn and Patrick and they couldn't have been nicer or classier! The food was out of this world! I wanted to order and eat everything on the dessert tray! This is a great restaurant if you would like to really impress a special person, or a whole group!

    We went on a Saturday night and booked the table for four on Open Table. When we arrived, they were able to get us in 45 minutes earlier than our reservations. They gave us the menus quickly and our server came right up to us. When she took our orders, she seemed as if she had to explain everything to a first grader. When she left our table, we all had the same feeling that she didn't accept us as her usual clientele. Maybe it was because 2 of the 4 of us had worn sweatshirts? Maybe. Was it because someone wanted to know why they would butterfly the filet? Maybe. Whatever the reason, we dropped $300 no questions asked. We also asked about smoking to which the visser said we couldn't smoke, but if we were literally at the table next to us we could. While the booths next to us and the tables near us all had smokers puffing away. Medium well was definitely well done with no juice to be found, very dry. The sweet potato was good. Desserts were very good too. Maybe it's time to give the menu a look over and come up with some more food options for diners.

    I just feel like the food wasn't worth the money. The service was beyond excellent from the hostess to thw waitress to the bus boy. But I feel like ive had better tasting food elsewhere for less money. The food was not bad by any means but I guess I was expecting more for those prices. Or maybe I'm just cheap and those are normal for a steakhouse in a casino. Also they allow smoking. ...gross

    Dined on 11/9/2014
    We ordered and shortly after we did my husband did not feel well ( not related to food at all, but a cold he was fighting), so i asked if we could get the order to go. Later that night back in the room, I went to eat some of our food only to discover the waitress never packed the baked potato they charged me $8 for. Quite disapointing

    We first dined at William B's Steakhouse about 10 years ago and we make it a point to go there when we are in Michigan City. The food is amazing, always top-notch. Love the quiet, elegant atmosphere and the service is first-rate. I hope you will put it on your list of must tries.

    The blacked scallops were to die for!!!!!!!!! This was an app special which should be added to the menu mabey as a surf and turf entree. It was a nice change and just the right spice. i wish you offered the steaks with a blackening your spice blend is delicious!!!!!!! The only complaint I would have is that the restaurant is frequently overbooked and if you book thru open table you will be bumped off the list and not only loose your reservations but your dining points because the restaurant will reschedule you on their system.

    Service. was good, but our server, Jen, didn't seem to be very familiar with the wine choices, though she did bring us the "book" of wines to look at. We opted to get cocktails instead. Asked 3 times for lemons for our water, but she did finally bring them. She was patient with questions about menu & food came in a very reasonable amount of time. I had oysters on the half shell & prime rib, my husband had bacon wrapped scallops & lobster fettuccini. My husband said the scallops were pretty bland, but the rest was wonderful. It was a bit disappointing that everything was a la carte, & the food is pricey, so we opted to go without sides. But overall the food was wonderful & the service was fine.

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    I met friends from Chicago at the restaurant (I'm from Ohio) and we had no idea that the restaurant allowed smoking! We were seated in the smoking section (unbeknownst to us) and could not handle the smell. We asked to be moved to the non-smoking section and it was a bit more pleasant (although everyone knows that smoke travels so it truly was not a non-smoking section). Also, we were first seated by a very loud private party and my friends and I could not hear each other. The table change helped. The food was good.

    We had a wonderful dinner. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The food and service were outstanding. The only complaint we had was that we had no idea it was a smoking restaurant. We weren't asked or offered a non smoking area. Being NON smokers, it did put a small damper on what was a otherwise wonderful meal.

    Overall our dinner was good. We have visited several times and this is the first we felt was a little less than expected for good quality. My wife had to send her filet back as well as the table next to us. My prime New York strip was on the edge of what I call prime. For a steak priced at $49 it better be great prime beef. We will still go back and I am not writing this to discourage anyone from going. I think this is still the best dinning in Northern Indiana.
