I brought a friend to dinner for her 87 birthday. We had a wonderful experience. The service was great and food delicious! We will be back.
our reservation was about 30 minutes after opening so the restaurant was quiet when we arrived. It was quickly filling by the time we left. The food was wonderful. The spinach salad was delicious and the steaks were done just as we requested and they were full of flavor. The shrimp cocktail had 6 JUMBO shrimp. Wonderful! The prices were in line with other upscale steak houses. It may not be somewhere you could dine every night but it certainly somewhere you should dine when you can. The service was fantastic. The view is wonderful and will get even better as spring and summer come along. Don't miss it!
We were a little disappointed this time. The quality of food has dropped off significantly. Both of our filets were a little tough. I would question whether they were indeed cut from the tenderloin. My wife's broccoli was cold. The bearnaise sauce was very thick and not much taste. On the positive side, the French onion soup was delicious and the creme brulee was good. Our waiter, Collin, was energetic and attentive.
We were in town for work and it was our wedding anniversary. Everyone there was so nice and the food was excellent. They wanted to give us a free dessert but we were too full. Then we sat at the piano bar and we even had a dance.
Our experience was wonderful! Not somewhere to go if one is looking for “value”, but the food was definitely worth what we paid. Delicious! And great service!
They’re missing a few attention to detail service items that would usually come with the price point but it was a good meal and good service.
We met up with some dear family for a special dinner and catch up time at Cavanaugh’s. The food was delicious! Everyone’s steak was so tender and tasty! Our service was wonderful and we enjoyed every moment of our visit. Also the lobster Mac and cheese was scrumptious!
Everything was great. Business celebration. Our waiter was very attentive...kept us informed of times throughout dinner. Great dinner.
It was a return visit for my husband and me, but the first time for the couple with us. Everything was exceptional. We had a table with a view of the river. Excellent drinks, atmosphere great and our appetizer was wonderful. They ordered Filets and said they were cook the best they had had as well as the best flavor. I had crab legs and my husband had the bone-in ribeye. They were both excellent as well. A great experience all around. Although the desserts looked delicious, no one saved room. We recommend it Highly!!!
Went here for Valentines with my wife. I have heard it was expensive but decided to try anyway. For the portion sizes we received (from the side items), it was definitely worth the price. Best steak hands down. Best sides we have ever eaten. Everything was cooked to perfection.
Excellent dining experience. Great food, great service, beautiful view, great ambiance. A little bit pricey but usually dine here for special occasions.
Valentine’s Day date
It was an amazing Valentine's day dinner. The food was delicious and the company was fabulous. Service was on it. Could not ask for more.
Valentine’s Day dinner. Great Food with a beautiful setting!
Was celebrating an anniversary. Server was nice. Food was less desirable than previous visits. Steak was well done - not medium.
We dine at Cavanaugh's fairly often. Especially for Business events. This was the FIRST Time our meal was not very good. We had a party of 7....Everyone ordered steak, to different degrees of rare or medium well. All 7 steaks were overcooked, and we lost our waiter for about an hour. We had to go to the bar to get a drink. We were extremely embarrassed. We will more than likely still come, hoping this was an isolated event.
We always go here for our Anniversary. Waiter was awesome!
Potatoes were a little too cheesy, steak a little tough.
Cavanaugh's is a fantastic restaurant with great service, fantastic food, and wonderful drink menu.
Cavanaughs made our first date super special. This night was the first night I had worn heels in several years and I felt like Julia Roberts walking in with Richard Gere in Pretty Woman. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent. Overall a very classy place.
Excellent fine dining in Evansville at the Tropicana Casino!
The service was superb and the quality of the food itself, very good. However, our dinner's took longer than expected to be served and everything was luke warm at best, including the soup appetizer. This was disappointing. The warm cornbread loaf that was served prior to the meal was a nice change. Due to the delay in our meals, they did offer us complimentary desserts, which were fantastic.
We enjoyed the filet and lamb chops - split a wedge salad to start - and order asparagus as a side. With the food we ordered and the bread that came at the beginning, we were stuffed with amazingly great food. We were able to have a conversation while the pianist played and sang in the background. We had great service and enjoyed the feel of the restaurant. The restaurant was bigger than I thought, but it still felt small.
Service and ambiance was very good but I had the bone in rib eye and it just didn't taste fresh. I got the impression I was served a steak that had been in the fridge too long.
Pretty disappointed overall.
Cavanaugh’s is quickly becoming our favorite restaurant for special occasions! This time it was my Daughters 21st Birthday. Food was superb, service excellent, and the card signed by the staff is such a nice touch!
Place was almost empty but they managed to spill wine on my guests, cook everyones steak to well done and generally absent for service.
As parents, we do not have many kid free nights. We decided to do a date night at Cavanaugh's. We had a wonderful dinner. Food was delicious, the server was very nice, and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.
Romantic dinner with a view of the river. We had the shrimp cocktail, king crab legs and potatoes au gratin. Everything was delicious. Service was excellent. Will return.
THE STEAK IS AMAZING!! Lots of flavor and so tender!!
My business partner and senior staff members were in town for a important corporate meeting and went to Cavanaugh's upon recommendation from others and prior experience - and once again you totally stepped up with excellent food, wine, atmosphere, and service. Our senior staff members had never been so this was the perfect choice to help show them our thanks for all their hard work. Thank you Cavanaugh's for a great dinner and night
Great place for business meetings or just a night out. Full wine list with great food.
Very friendly and accommodating. Did wait for food a bit, but most enjoyable. And close to casino
Highly recommended for upscale dining!! Food was fantastic and the overlooking view of the river was awesome.
Well I will start by saying that the setting and appearance is great. My wife had the pork chop and said it was great. The callamari was good for the appetizer. I had the prime rib and it's was very mediocre in my opinion. We waited 45 mins to be served our food and all came out room temperature along with the asparagus I had. Prime rib had a lot of excess fat. I definitely would much rather have me a Texas Roadhouse or Logan's any day any time. The ambiance is cool and mice to experience. Other then that all it is overpriced and very overrated
I would have given an outstanding rating overall, however our service was very slow. It took us two hours from time we sat down to time we left (for a party of two 8:30pm-10:30pm). Our waiter spent more time chatting up and giving hugs to other tables and neglected us along with two other tables beside us. They were also complaining. Waiter only refilled our drinks once (in tow hours!). I rarely saw him during the two hour experience. After 10 minutes I had to take my bill/credit card to him as he would not come back to get it. He said they were busy......was not even at 30% capacity at that time (10:30pm).
This is not my typical experience with Cavanaugh's. I have only had outstanding experiences in the past, both in a personal and business dinner setting.
It wasn’t the best at Cavanaugh’s tonight. When you cut corners with food and service on a $300 bill, it just doesn’t make the customer very happy. I’ve been drinking double-oaked Woodford reserves which are $9.50 per drink. The drinks were too weak, and I was waiting for refills several times. The lobster bisque was salty and cold, and brought out the same time as my cocktail shrimp. My wife asked for a spinach salad with salmon added to it, but the salad was brought out by itself with no salmon, and a separate salmon entree was brought out later for the main course. Last but not least my $42 steak ordered medium was somehow burned on the outside and rare on the inside. Sitting in a pool of blood after I cut a few pieces but still Couldn’t have sent it back to cook anymore because the outside was already charred and black. I’ve been to this place probably 50 times now and it’s really tough to say things about Cavanaugh’s because I have loved my experience on so many occasions, but we were cut short tonight, and it just didn’t feel like a special occasion treatment with the food and service.
Great restaurant and very good food. The lobster bisque was very salty, I could not finish it; however, they made it right by taking it off the bill.
Dining area was too bright and we ordered the roasted broccoli from the menu and it was actually steamed. Overall the experience was good.
Filets at Cavanaughs are a family tradition for Christmas Eve. Everything was perfect. Joanne fantastic server.
I've always enjoyed Cavanaughs but this trip was just ok. Steak was pretty good, shrimp were tough and tasteless. Waitress was ok, not overly personable, but we'll probably return.
Quiet dinner for two. Food was good just over priced.
A nice evening out.
