Overall great first time experience!!! The prime rib was on point and the seafood linguini was the best we’ve ever had!! The waiter was very nice and inviting and picked out the perfect glass of wine for my wife. Made for a great date nite.

We ordered the prime rib. It was very excellent. Our server was very courteous and helpful. Overall experience was very satisfying
It was a very nice evening.
Love the ambiance on the Ohio river. It was well worth our time and money!!!
Excellent service from Riah. Wonderful ambience. Delicious food.
Mom’s 75th birthday celebration
Hostess was incredible and very complimentary to my mother
Serg (waiter) did everything right and made us very much enjoy our experience.
We had a window view overlooking the Ohio river that was spectacular, if only the entire experience could have been the same.
While there was a large group that had arrived before us which slowed down the kitchen (35 people showing up for a party of 10???) we were very disappointed with the way our order was almost destroyed. Not only did we have to wait almost 20 minutes for our food we had ordered 3 steaks and none was prepared correctly. I ordered my bone-in ribeye with au poivre and it arrived with no peppercorns although the cognac sauce did come. When I asked the waitress she said that was correct and I mentioned the description on the menu stated peppercorns and the sauce. Otherwise my steak was done correctly so I ate it without the peppercorns.
The other 2 steaks, filets, were way overcooked: one was to be rare+ and it came out well done while the other was to be medium rare and came out medium well. The 2 filets were redone and came back perfect.
Cavanaugh's did give us nice compensation for the errors and we enjoyed our dinners.

The food was absolutely amazing. The service was wonderful. Everyone was so friendly and so nice. I wish that we weren't just there for vacation because I feel like this is a place I would definitely return to again and again.
Took my boyfriend here for an early Father’s Day dinner because he has wanted to eat here for a while he got the duck and said it was ok I had a steak which was messed up 3 times before I refused to have them make another my steak was taken off the bill and we were competed 2 creek cake deserts that looked beautiful but were also discussing. We were very disappointed and will not be back
Great food and beautiful views! Service at Cavanaugh's is second to none. Everyone is extremely nice! The food is pricey but very good.
I was satisfied with my dining experience for my birthday. It was wonderful to catch up with my friends and enjoy some good food.

I have had dinner at Cavanaugh’s more than 25 times. This was my first time under the new owners (Eldorado Resorts), and I am pleased to say that it was as good as ever, possibly better. There has been some changes to the menu, along with small changes to some of the recipes of menu items that have been around since the beginning. That can be dangerous when something has been around and well liked for so long, but I believe they pulled it off for the most part. The only drawback in my opinion is the recipe change of the cocktail sauce that comes with the shrimp cocktail. That is an appetizer I get every time, and have always loved the (I assume) house made cocktail sauce. If they didn’t change the recipe, then someone had to accidentally spill some more horseradish in it because it had enough to clear your sinuses. My friend eating dinner with me and myself both got the shrimp cocktail, and both found ourselves having to wipe our noses several times while eating it. It was annoying having to do this especially at an upscale restaurant, but not enough to complain to the staff about it. I am sure the chef would have whipped me up a little sauce with less horseradish, but I was hungry and looking forward to my first part of dinner at my favorite restaurant. It did not affect my rating for this trip, but I would like to think that someone would address it with all the shrimp cocktails they sale, and maybe make it the way they always have, and offer the option for the diner to have spicy cocktail sauce upon request.
Crab legs were good but market price of $80 was a little high. Brussels sprouts and bread were too dry to eat . everything else was good.
It was pricey but the food was really good. Would be a nice place for an anniversary meal.
The service was excellent. Attentive but not hovering. The food was great especially the crab cake appetizer and the filet. Sides are easily enough for two so sharing is a good idea. I’d like to see more house made desserts. Cocktails were terrific too.
We arrived at the Hostess greeted my Mother in Law and her twin Sister with a Happy Birthday wish! We went to our table by the window overlooking the river upon arrival. What a view! There was a birthday card in the table. Our server arrived shortly after sitting down and took our drink orders and explained the specials. Drinks arrived and we ordered appetizers of Chicken Marsala meatballs and the largest shrimp cocktail I have ever seen. Both were delicious. They also brought Artisan bread with roasted garlic cloves and butter. All I can say is delicious! Our server was knowledgeable and friendly and best of all a Cardinals fan. We ordered Scallops, Lamb Chops, Salmon, and a Filet. In addition to the sides that came with the meal we ordered Lobster MAC & Cheese (incredible) as well as Broccoli. The main courses were presented beautifully. They tasted even better. What an incredible experience! The twins finished their birthday dinner with a desert. If you want an exceptional dining experience along with wonderful food, atmosphere, and service, then Cavanaugh’s is a must on your list! Thank you for a memorable experience!
We had an great experience, it was our first time there for us ans we had a great time and our server Collin was amazing and let us know everything which made it that much more comfortable. From the time we walked in until we left was great, next time we will choose a window seat, but all is very nice!!!
Absolutely LOVE this place! The only negative was that we ordered 2 shrimp cocktail appetizers. The second one came and we couldn’t eat two of them. They smelled fishy and were not crunchy like the others. A bit disappointing but the overall experience was still an A!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Nice view of the river. Enjoyed the music coming from the bar. Very enjoyable experience.
Was a very nice experience. I gave it 4 stars due to a bug. I felt something on my arm and noticed a stink bug crawling on me. Food was ok. Service was great. Not a fan of the prime rib. I’ve had much much better prime rib at smaller mom and pop diners.
The night was fantastic and very enjoyable watching the river.
Great friendly, attentive, courteous staff. New items in the menu and great selection.
Amazing quality food. Great service with prompt waiters.
Excellent food and fantastic service.

Great environment and staff! Service was exceptional.
Food was good, but overpriced
Piano bar was a lot of fun with great music

Sergey is a very good server. He’s fun to talk to and very attentive.
Food was fabulous! Service was great!
Lovely date night!!
