ordered Prime Rib. and New York Strip $46.00 and $56.00 . Ordered both medium rare, both were medium to well cooked. The Prime was so tough it was a crime to call it Prime anything , very cheap cut of meat. Ordered calamari and it was undercooked and had to send it back to be cooked longer. Very disappointed in the whole meal. $158.00 for a meal that was so under expectation.

We had a wonderful waiter, but I must say the hostess was rude. Doors were unlocked so of course we entered the restaurant. She was very rude to us and the other couple who came in stating if the doors are not physically open don't come in. It was 4:55 and our reservations were at 5. Wouldn't anyone have enter if the doors were unlocked!!!

Our server (chris) was very nice and attentive. Food just wasn’t very good. Lacked flavor, incorrectly described. 2 items we ordered were out and substituted. Husband got the special pasta which was not at all as described. Salmon was cooked very nicely and every person we had contact with was very nice.

Loved the waiter Jack. Food was great except for the baked potato, you could tell it was precooked, on cool side, not fluffy. Everything else from the steak, mashed potatoes, Caesar salad, shrimp cocktail and creme brulee were wonderful. Thank you!

My guests said that the prime rib "wasn't amazing". That they wish they had ordered a Ribeye. The pasta of the week was spaghetti with bacon - just average. The side items (asparagus, brussel sprouts, house salad, spinach salad, and the bread) were delicious!

We really loved the service. We had Surge - and he was just perfect.

It was a nice evening.. just a little disappointed with our main entrees.

I understand you are seating less people do to Covid or short staff. I felt like the groups should of been spaced out more, the restaurant wasn’t full by any means, but it felt like we were all seated in the center of the room and close together

Lovely early 1900s decor, great value, great service, good food. We are from a metro area where this meal would have easily been 70-100% higher in price. Staff works hard to exceed expectations. Not five stars but a very good steakhouse. The baked potato was perfectly prepared and the size of a Buick! Great value on cocktails and wine. If you are staying in the hotel/casino a definite yes.

Well, River City Casino made this visit difficult and annoying. We parked in the parking garage which was near the concert (The Guess Who). When we tried to walk to the restaurant we could not get there because we had to pass through the casino. Oddly enough, the casino required masks but the rest of the facility did not. The casino did not provide masks. But we were told we could buy one - for $8.00. What a terrible set up and policy!!!

1904 is an upscale restaurant attached to the River City Casino. The food was excellent, and the service and decor are first rate. It was a bit too dark inside, which made it hard to read the menu without using the light on my phone. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food, which helped. I had the prime rib, and it was great. Very tasty and tender. My wife had the Airline Chicken, and she said it was wonderful. It’s a bit on the pricey side for being attached to a casino. And the sides are ala carte. It made up for the price, though by having good food and service. If you’re in the area I would recommend it, but make reservations as they get quite busy.

My plate was great, however I had to send my partner steak back twice before she was able to get it well done by then it was burnt. Unacceptable for $56.00. She wouldn’t let me ask for a manager for the risk that they would harm her food.

Disappointing. My husbands strip steak was cold and underdone, the baked potato was luke warm. My filet was warm, not hot. Mashed potatoes warm, not hot. I added on two scallops for $20, expecting some impressive scallops. I was not impressed.

Bread was delicious. We also ordered french onion soup, which was very tasty and hot. Our waiter and all the wait staff were very good.

When we eat at what we consider a pricey, upscale restaurant, we expect meals to come out fresh off of the grill sizzling hot. We could have sent back our food, but then we would be waiting another 15-20 minutes, which we weren't interested in doing.

I don't expect we will go back.

The beef here is so good that I often order the filet with no seasoning and no garlic butter......just grilled, and they grille it to perfection. My friend had the prime rib which had been roasting all day, and it was served rare and tender. Hopefully they have a plan to keep these chefs in place for a long time. The whipped potatoes are made fresh daily, and the house salad is fresh and crisp with the red wine vinagrette dressing. They have an ever changing list of top domestic red wines to complement your meal. Most recently we enjoyed the Caymus Cab, and the Stag's Leap Artemis is another wonderful choice. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and very efficient.

Our mashed potatoes and baked potatoes were cold, one of the filets had a funny taste sent it back, the salmon was not good at all. Other than that the prime rib And other filets were perfect. Veggies could of been hot. 314-600-3346 waitress and all staff was great.

Ughhh Being a steakhouse I had high hopes for the steaks.
Our table had Ribeye (VERY chewy), sirloin (very tough) filet (ok) prime ribeye (very bland) none of them has seasoning what so every. All Very bland. Service was no where near where it needed to be, especially for prices we paid. Very disappointed at overall meal and service. Highlight was Mary made great lemon drops! Wedge and spinach salads were good! Definitely understaffed . Also only 4 wine menus in the entire restaurant. The table assistant/bus boy was working really hard!
