Four of us went to the Center Cut for dinner on a Friday night. The service was excellent, and the ambiance was was equal to any of the national brand steakhouses. Two of us ordered the large filet and both were grilled to perfection. The third member of our foursome ordered the NY strip and it was also grilled to perfection. The fourth member of our group ordered the the salmon and she said it was excellent. We ordered the mashed potatoes, asparagus, mushrooms, and heirloom carrots as sides the portions were generous and flavorful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and look forward to going back soon. I believe the actual cuts of beef were slightly better than what we normally get at Ruth's or Morton's.

The menu was very very promising, but very disappointing. I had chicken liver as appetizer and they were so greasy and so tough, could not eat them. My husband got calamari that were so chewable that he could not eat it, and we took it home, when even our young adult rejected them. My main course was a lobster pie, that was just okay, and arugula salad, with no dressing or taste. My husband got the venison, that was just okay, and the Brussels sprout were very disappointing. We did not have any desert because we waited for the waitress for ever, and just skipped it. The restaurant is in a casino so there is lots of smoke and noise, and the food was very disappointing.

Brandy and Kyle make magical cocktails. Brandy and Pat are awesome server professionals. It is always fun to see Julie at the hostess stand. When you arrive at the restaurant it is like the sitcom Cheers: Everybody knows your name and the reason you came!
Steaks are flavorful and the kitchen never over cooks... when you order medium rare, for instance, the steak arrives at your table medium rare!!!!! I have never had to send a steak back. As for their Seafood, it is as fresh as you are going to get, considering we are landlocked in the midwest! Awesome raw oysters with a vinegar based brine. If you like SeaBass, you are going to love this one!.
Not only are the cocktails and food yummy, but you also get entertaining live music.
Bottom line, you can not go wrong at this restaurant.

Very nice dinner, the server was excellent. Kind of mixed feelings about the food versus price. I had the lobster pot pie, which was very good, but I would have preferred the potatoes and carrots to be into smaller pieces for better cooking. They were a little firm and IMO stews and such should have soft, almost fall apart veggies. My wife had the filet mignon, but ordered it medium well, so I cannot give an opinion on a steak that was ordered anything beyond medium (I prefer medium rare personally). Even being borderline well done, it was somewhat tender and pretty good and the chef prepared it as ordered. I save the best for last though. We also had the crab cake appetizer and it was OUTSTANDING. Big chunks of crab meat and not too much of anything else. Just enough to hold it together and a perfect job of searing the top and bottom to a perfect golden brown. Enough for two to share and the best we’ve had. The different breads with the three kinds of butter was a nice beginning course as well. We will go back again.

The food is so good. Our fliets were cooked perfect and I added a side of pimento cheese grits to mine. They reminded me of my grandma's southern cooking.
We always ask that Pat be our server. He makes dinner so enjoyable. Truly an asset for the restaurant.
We will definately be back.

The Center Cut is located at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino so you need to wade through the slot machines to get to the restaurant. it is definitely worth it. Once you step inside, the noise of the casino fades away. The service was top knotch and the food was incredible. I ordered the chilean sea bass and it was tender and juicy. My date ordered the prime rib and it was cooked perfectly. The wine list was not extensive, but it was very good. It was a wonderful night and we had privacy and quiet to talk. if you are there gambling or watching a race, it is a great place to take a break. If you are in the area and want some fine dining, this is worth stopping in.

We had a great 1st experience. Our server was very polite and kept up well with our needs. Our meal was perfect and I ate every single bite! The bread at the beginning was a vey nice surprise and very tasty. We'll definitely be back for more! The noise level question confused me a bit, but it was perfectly quiet and very calm.

Impeccable dinner, steaks far better than those at high end Indianapolis restaurants.

Service, especially when we have Brandy as our server, is top notch.

Our favorite place to dine by far.

Absolutely wonderful! Kyle had our table ready, and knew our drink preferences when we arrived. He is the best bartender/server. We always request him when we dine at Center Cut. We will return. The coffee crusted New York strip steaks were excellent! I hope they keep these steaks on the menu.

Tried enjoying a Christmas Eve dinner and it was horrendous. Food was absolutely disgusting. We brought it to the attention of the server. The chef walked by us twice without an acknowledgement. The manager didn’t even attempt to apologize. Very unprofessional. SHAME ON YOU CHEF! Rethink your career choice

It has become an annual tradition to have dinner at Center Cut for our wedding anniversary. (We also go there for other occasions, like birthdays, and whenever we want a really good steak.) We have become good friends with server/bartender extraordinaire, Kyle Fix. He always takes good care of us, and this visit was no exception. Best steaks for miles around. Great alternative to places like St. Elmo's, and it's practically in my back yard. Really happy to have this great establishment this close to home.

Nice place but the smell of smoke from the casino almost counters all of the benefits. Usually we are seated in the back of the restaurant and the smoke isn't a problem, but since it was a slow Monday we were seated just a few feet into the restaurant and the stench spoiled the night.

Celebrating a college graduation and couldn't have been more pleased with the service, ambience, drinks, and food. Steaks were expertly prepared, as were the lamb chops and scallops. 1 side dish can feed 2-3 people. I have been here a couple times and when you step off the casino floor into the restaurant you leave the hustle and bustle of the gaming area behind for a really high end dining experience.
