    Loved the seating in front of the chefs stat ion it was like watching a one act play! These guys are like a well oiled machine. We started our dining experience with the maytag blue cheese salad which was fresh and made from the finest quality ingredients. Then it was bring on the beef and man was it cooked perfectly our filets were awesome accompanied by smoked cheddar baked mac and cheese. The restaurant was dimly lit and each table strategically placed to assure each party had privacy. The staff takes pride in there work to ensure your experience will bring you back! Bon appetite y'all!

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    Without a doubt, one of Shreveport's hidden treasures. Everyone thinks that Binion's is the place to go for good food at the casinos. They couldn't be more wrong. William B's is by far the much better restaurant. The food is absolutely superb, the ambiance is great, and the menu is less than half the price of Binion's!! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone, regardless of their foodie pallets. We live in Shreveport and eat here on a regular basis. Highly recommend.

    We dine with William B's 3 to 4 times a month and I have never had one single complaint about anything the chef's put on my plate.....Now Folks, that's saying something......You cannot go wrong in eating a meal with them and you definitely won't leave wanting anything else to eat....you may even have a "take-out" to "take home".....!!!

Waitpersons are spectacular (especially Samir) and I would love to have each chef as a "live-in" at home!! Host and Hostess are very, very amicable for the start of a very enjoyable occasion.

    I have finally had a bad steak it took three years and a new cook/chef but the prime rib was over cooked and tasted old or bad. Since they let Chef Cedric go across the river the Quality of food and taste has gone downhill. Sorry just being Honest.

    My wife and I have eaten at William B's before and really enjoyed the food and the service. We have never had dinner on a "special" occasion before and thought we would try it. The food was wonderful as usual. The service was great as usual and the Champagne was a very nice touch. We will definitely be back. Super Thanks to Ron and the "crew"".

My husband and I never order the same items and neither of us has had one thing to complain about....the hostess is great, our waiter, Samir, is a gem, and I wish all the chefs lived with me!!! Go, you most certainly will not regret it.

Would recommend this establishment to anyone. No need to dress up but can still feel that you are eating at a 5 star establishment. Sam's Town knows how to make everyyone feel good!

    Food was excellent - server (Henry) very friendly and informative. Great wine list. Service was a little on the slow side. Noise from band was extremely loud! Not a place for a quiet, romantic dinner if during the band's performance time - but, we will definitely come back - food was great!!!

    Great menu offering a wide range of options. Food was very good but one of my guests steak was undercooked. This was corrected but took 10 minutes to do so. The wine list was extensive and laid out very well. The service was good, maybe even a little slow but our server had several tables needing his attention. However this was not a problem since we wanted a leisurely pace. All-in-all a nice dining experience.

    This is our second visit to William B's this month and it won't be our last....the service was impeccable, the food was marvelous, and the ambience was perfect....what more do you need to start a wonderful evening with your hubby or special one....not a thing! Everyone was most courteous, service was not rushed but not too slow....just right. When a meal starts your evening this way the rest is bound to be heaven!! Please do give them a try...you will not regret it. Bon Appetit!

    If you are looking for a great meal you will not be disappointed, try the Chicken Oscar or any of the Steaks, I had the special braise rib which was awesome, my wife had the oscar also awesomeness! Everybody always order baked potato to be safe but you have to try the potatoes au gratin. 5 stars plus.

    I ordered the filet mignon and wasn't pleased when I found out it didn't come with any sides. The steak was decent but to me not worth the money. My wife ordered the seafood cannelloni and it was was way to oily. The spinach salad and the red velvet cake was the only two really good things about the meal.

    Rib a Eye steak "the Chop" cooked perfectly. Excellent taste and melted in mouth. Would say one of the best steaks I have had recently. French Onion soup also very tasty, the ratio of soup broth to onions, to bread to cheese was perfect. My only complaint was the service. Waiter would disappear for long periods. When returned to floor, would wait on others and never stop to check on his other tables. My ice tea remain empty more than full.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our entire meal - from appetizer to entrée. We were seated across from the chef's stations and I really enjoyed that. Your chefs are awesome - the food - excellent! Our only request next time will be a new waitperson. He wasn't a bad waitperson but evidently thought we needed entertaining since he never stopped with the foolish comments. I don't go to a restaurant to hear a comedy act....but for the food....which as I said was awesome. We were happy when the meal was over BUT NOT because of the food. On our next visit, we will ask for a new waitperson and I can guarantee you, we will again be completely pleased with the food, and our new waitperson. Go and enjoy, you'll be so glad you did!

    It had been awhile since my husband and I had eaten here and we knew that one of the chef's had left . No need to worry though !! My husband ordered steak , blackened, medium rare and he said it was possibly the best he had ever eaten. I love their baked potatoes and fried shrimp. We always ask for Samuel and he does a great job making sure we have everything we need.

    Quiet, relaxed atmosphere; no windows or view however....not recommended for anyone who may be claustrophobic. Although we dined early (6:00 pm) and there was no large crowd, the service was slow. The restaurant specializes in steaks and prime rib. I had the prime rib and it was quite good. Overall I would rate this a three star, nothing extraordinary.

WE WERE MOST IMPRESSED WITH THE GREETING WE RECEIVED FROM THE MANAGER AND HIS FOLLOW-UP TO OUR TABLE. OUR WAITER WAS SAMMY WHO WAS THE BEST WAITER WE HAVE EVER HAD ANYWHERE AND, WE HAVE BEEN TO PLACES ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE FOOD WAS FIXED TO PERFECTION AND TIMING OF EACH SEGMENT WAS EXACTLY ON TARGET. SAMMY RECEIVED MY RECORD TIP AND WE EXPRESSED OUR THANKS AND GRATITUDE TO THE MANAGER ON OUR WAY OUT. THANK YOU, ERIC LOGSDON PS: MY WIFE AND I AGREED THAT WE WOULD DRIVE FROM TYLER TO SAMS TOWN JUST TO EAT AT WILLIAM B'S...AND PAY FOR IT.

    We visited William B's on a Saturday night and the restaurant was fairly crowded. We were seated immediately and the service was very good. Sam, our waiter, guided us through the menu to arrive at our selections. We both had the bone in Chop ribeye steak, both cooked exactly as ordered and the mac and cheese was very good. Some of the casino steakhouses are hit or miss, but I would recommend William B's.
