    Had a great meal with outstanding service. When I made reservations I mentioned it was our anniversay and asked for a quiet location. We got what I asked for along with a pleasent suprise at the end of the meal. A cake with candles and a congratulations from the staff. Very nice.

    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.

    THIS WAS OUR FIRST VISIT TO WILLIAM B'S. WE WERE MAILED A COUPON. SO WE WENT OVER LAST TUES. AND SPENT THE AFTERNOON GAMBLING WITH 5:30 RESERVATIONS. 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.

    Tunica, Biloxi, Vegas, Sh/BC we have had 72 meals in high end steak houses. B's was an utter disappointment and complete joke from start to finish. Perhaps you should venture next door to ascertain how it's supposed to be done ie. Vintage. We ALWAYS stay at Sam's Town but will give that Circus of your's a wide birth henceforth and dine at 1800, Binions or Vintage. Not enough space here for details so should anyone be interested, call me and I will enlighten. Dan Branson 903 399.2609

    Well to begin with Chef Cedric is missed, I really can't believe that Sam's Town let him get away to another Casino. But Rebecca is a great Chef also and she always takes care of us. Henry is always the best server and takes great care of us everytime. When you meet Ron the Manager he may seem a little strange but don't let it worry you he is a great Host. Don't know what we would do without all these great people at William B's

    We eat here weekly but this time we had Friends in from Florida and they have never been to William b's well as usual it was the best service and Food as always, Henry is by far the best server around and the Chef "Cedric" is the best in town and don't forget Ron the Manager he is awesome as well. If you don't fall in love with this food and service then you don't deserve to eat here. See ya!!

    Went there on May 10th for an anniversary dinner. Was promised a complimentary bottle of champagne by the restaurants manager, Ron. Unfortunately, nothing was ever sent to our table. Ron, who seated us upon arriving, never returned for a follow up on our experience. Decent crab cakes. Decent caesar salad. Steak was over-cooked but had great flavor. Great mushrooms and asparagus. Good wine list and spirits selection. I will not be dinning her in the future.

    I dine there regularly. Never had a bad experience. Steaks and seafood are their specialty. An upscale restaurant with a friendly and professional staff. Good wine selection too. Good for entertaining family, friends & clients. Predictably good food and service and very accommodating to special requests. Located off the lobby of a casino hotel so ask for a table near the back of the restaurant; otherwise, the music from the hotel lobby bar may compete with the soft elevator music in the restaurant.

    Best steak I have had in years. My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here after a long day in the casino. Ou server Larry, made us feel like were his only concern, and even took time to help with menu selections. The food is marvelous, and the open kitchen fills the whole room with such a great aroma as you can smell all the steaks and dishes cooking. A little pricey, our bill for two people was just over $150, but I will definitely go back next time I'm in town.

    My husband and I ate at William B's two nights in a row. We thoroughly enjoyed both dinners. The beef selections -- filet and prime rib were outstanding, as were the seafood selections -- salmon and shrimp. Our service was extraordinary -- Horia is a gem. The new manager, Ron, is making such a difference; it is a joy to dine at William B's.
