    Although my wife and I enjoyed a great meal, we unfortunately sat near some diners who were just plain unhappy with each other and everything else. Too bad. I highly recommend the crab cakes, best I ever had.

    We went to William B's for a special dinner to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We were not disappointed. The Maitre D', Patrick, was very friendly and accommodating. He checked on us several times during the meal to ensure that we were pleased. Kathy was our waitress. She was excellent. Very friendly, helpful and attended to our every need. The food was excellent. At the end of dinner William B's provided us with a delicious cake for our celebration. It was a great experience, and we would like to thank the Blue Chip Casino and William B's for a wonderful dinner.

    Service was great, the staff was friendly, attentive and personable. The food was great, I had the filet medium and my wife had the surf and turf. The only thing we didn't like was the creamed spinach, too salty with the ham in it.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    We were seated as soon as we arrived in a booth. The bread and water arrived at the table. However a waiters and waitresses just looked at us. Not one person stopped or made an effort to find out what we were there for. I took my phone and set a stop watch to see how long it would take for someone to take our order. Took over 10mins. Sally finally came over to us. And just sat there and stared at us. Made the whole situation very awkward. I ordered the fillet and cooked medium. It came out litterally bloody. Had to ask her to take our drink order. She stood as far away from us as she could. It was seriously a Horrible experience. Not worth the price whatsoever!!!!!

    Stayed at the Blue Chip for our Anniversary and ate at William B's both nights for dinner. The food was excellent!!! The Shrimp Cocktail for an appetizer was fabulous! Jumbo shrimp bigger than I've ever had. Tried both the chopped salad & the house salad. Both were good. The French onion soup was wonderful, not too salty like most. Ate the special on Friday night, Marlin, was excellent. On Saturday we had a steak filet & the Chilean Sea Bass. Again the food was "to die for". The Key Lime Pie was scrumptious. Service was great, not too rushed. The Maître d' made several passes through the restaurant and spoke to each table individually. Definitely recommend this place for a nice dinner out.

    Being from Chicago, I was skeptical of how good the food and experience would be. I was blown away by the food, service and the price. The filet was delicious and I was delighted to find some high end cabs at a decent price. Our waitress was very attentive without being over bearing and the water glasses never got empty: something I value highly when drinking wine. They even decanted our wine which I thought was a nice touch. This is definitely the best steak house I have dined at outside of Chicago!

    We had 6p reservations prior to a special event at 8p. We arrived on time & was told to wait in the bar with 40 people who were doing the same thing. When we checked in we explained to the hostess that we needed a table, because we would not be comfortable seated in a booth (this was also on the open table reservation). After waiting 1/2 hr we were going to be seated in a booth, because they had walk-in high rollers from casino who took the remaining tables without reservations. So we waited again for a table to open & when one did THEY ACTUALLY SEATED ANOTHER PERSON WHO WALKED UP WITHOUT A RESERVATION. We finally got seated 45 minutes late without even an apology or glass of wine. Not worth the aggravation-manager is not helpful.

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    High end dining, high end pricing, average food quality. My wife and I enjoy dining out and we do not have an issue with paying for quality food. The walleye I had at William B's was over cooked on the edges and the bottom (For the second time). My wife had the twin lobster tail, which she enjoyed. Service was good, our server was named Wayne. With our meal being comped, I was not to upset, just thought the management would like to know our experience. I have had the walleye before and really enjoyed it, but the Lighthouse in Cedar Lake tops this one! Bottomline, food quality at William B's is going the wrong direction!!

    The filet three way's may have been the best meal we have had at a leading steak house. Everything exceeded expectations. Great place for dinner but just go there and eat. The Blue Chip as a whole especially the service on the hotel side and the management on the hotel side is worse then a motel 6.

    The petite sirloin was delicious, the crab stuff shrimp was horrible. The shrimp was hard and rubbery. The Brussels sprouts were decent but undercooked in my opinion. The ribeye was good but quite fatty. Both steaks were cooked to specifications. The soups were ok at best. The service was much lacking and out waiter mostly absent. We only had soups and entrees and ended up being there almost two hours. We received bread and our soups right away but waited almost 45 mins for our entrees. We asked for additional bread and our server never brought it. We ended up asking another tables server for condiments after we got our plates because our server disappeared again. Didn't order dessert because we didn't want to wait any longer.

The sea bass and stuffed shrimps were very good but the shrimp in the shrimp dejohn were way over cooked. The flavor was very good but the dish was ruined by the overcooked shrimp. Have eaten here 4 or 5 times now and has always been an enjoyable experience.

    My husband and I have eaten at William B's steakhouse several times. This last dining experience we found the food just not up to standard. My lobster was stringy and tough and just plopped on a plate with no style or flair. The blue cheese salad dressing was not good at all. I ate the lobster but left the salad which they did not charge us for. My husbands sea bass special was fine, but a bit small. I will say they make the best Bombay Sapphire martinis. The wait staff was great and ambiance wonderful. We will go back because normally I love their lobster.

    The atmosphere at William B's allows for a romantic dinner or just having a relaxing dinner with friends. We are never rushed to complete our meal. The filet and lobster is always delicious with the burgundy mushrooms and asparagus. My prime rib was done just as I liked - lightly pink - and very tender. Our server was pleasant and friendly.

    William B's is located inside the Blue Chip Casino and Hotel. It's an upscale restaurant with dedication to detail. Our wait staff was outstanding and the food was incredibly delicious! I recommend the potatoes au gratin and the cream of wild mushroom soup (when available). The steaks were great quality, and our server made a great recommendation of pairing the wine with my meal. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic, leisurely dinner while visiting Blue Chip Casino, William B's is a great place!

    We have eaten here 4 times and get excellent service every single time! The last time we ate there it took way too long for a server to show up. When one finally did, she apologized profusely and said that she did not know we were her table. She was friendly and accommodating throughout our meal and said she was going to make it up to us due to the fact that she kept us waiting. We ended up with complimentary 2 crème brule. It was delicious! We never had a bad meal here either.

    This was my first time dining at this restaurant with my boyfriend. We found the food on par with that on a typical upscale Chicago-style fine dining experience. Everything was well prepared with quality ingredients to ensure an exceptional meal. The server was attentive to our needs, and the low-lighting and kid-free environment because of its casino setting, made for an enjoyable adults-only atmosphere. For Michigan City, it is pricey, but in this case, the prices are more than justified given the top-notch food quality and impeccable service. I would easily recommend this establishment for romantic, intimate dinners and special occasions. I feel that it is easily the very best in upscale dining in Michigan City, Indiana.
