Center Cut at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I Arrived at 7pm had reservations, were seated immediately. Prompt service ordered drinks our server was prompt and attentive. I ordered the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer and it was superb. I had the signature NY Strip and my wife had the filet. Both were very good. We had the creme brulee for desert and it was excellent.
The pork chop and ribeye were large and cooked to perfection. The chicken livers appetizer were great as always. The fish chowder was very good and was served differently than I've seen before which added ambience to the meal. Christina the waitress is excellent and we always ask for her when we eat at this restaurant.
The restaurant is a nice place to eat in an area where most of the restaurants are casual dining. One major issue I had was walkin through the smoky casino to get to the restaurant. It reminded me of the old days of flying where you had to walk through the smoking section to get to the bathroom. The food was okay. My King Salmon was a touch undercooked. My wife and son had crab legs that were great.
Overall, I thought the restaurant was good but somewhat expensive for what you get.
Crab goat cheese fondue was pretty good. I recommend this. Sliders and fries...cold. Flavor was fine but “pickles” tasted like plain cucumbers. I would not order again. Lobster bisque was good at first but then started to separate (weird?) after a few minutes. I would not order again. The lobster in it was over cooked but nice sized piece of claw meat. I hate when food comes out cold. My wife would not let me say anything even though I just wanted mine heated up, not a new dish. Her coffee crusted steak was fine but again it was not warm/hot. It was on top of cold polenta as well. The waiter did not ask how everything was so we did not say anything. It kind of stinks to drop $125 on dinner and just be “okay” but it happens.
After wading thru the smoke filled casino, I was worried that this may not be a good idea. Once we got into the restaurant the smoke subsided and we started to get our appetites back. We started with the shrimp cocktail. The shrimp was a little mushy at $4 per shrimp and I could taste some grit. My wife had the 10oz fillet and I had the 20os bone in ribeye. Both were ordered medium. The fillet was so undercooked it was purple in the center. My wife sent it back after just cutting into it. when server asked how my steak was and although it didn't have any flavor, I told her it was OK. She sensed something wasn't OK so I told her it had no flavor. She took it back also. 12 or so minutes later my wife's fillet returned. The good news it, it was now medium but the blue cheese topping was now burned. The ribeye returned and was somewhat more flavorful. All in all a good $70 meal. Not a good $150 meal. However they did give us a free piece of cake that we took home to the daughter. Lessons learned. Next time drive to Indianapolis and get good steaks.
WE HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS RESTAURANT MANY TIMES BUT WOULDN'T AGAIN AFTER OUR LATEST DINNER.
StEAKS WERE OVER DONE AND VERY DRY. NOT UP TO THEIR USUAL STANDARDS AT ALL. I DIDN'T FINISH MINE.
WE HOPE IT WAS JUST A BAD NIGHT IN THE KITCHEN BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN A FAVORITE FOR A LONG TIME.
The food and service are excellent. Coming in through the Casino is a bit rough as the smoking and smell of smoke can ruin the ambiance, but once you enter the restaurant all of that is quickly forgotten. The place is great, you no longer smell the casino and the atmosphere is very good.
Service was good, but normally it is outstanding. One in our party ordered Lobster Bisque and the waiter FORGOT to put in the order. One ordered Oysters Rockefeller and it came as ordered. Our food main course came before we had finished our salads. I felt as though we were being rushed. The food is great and we will return, but I was a little disappointed with the service this night.
All our special occasions are celebrated here. The last two weekend dining was here. One for birthday and the 2nd for anniversary. The steaks are the best around. The service is great! The only draw back is it's in the casino and if your a non smoker you will have to walk through the smoke filled casino to get to the restaurant, but once inside the restaurant you can not smell the smoke. Very elegant setting inside. I would highly recomend.
Waitress was good could of been a little better at keeping up with tea and water refills other wise loved it dessert was great they added 2 candles to my moms cake for her birthday great noise level didn't have to shout could here everyone would recommend to everyone
My soup came out cold. Then my crab cake came out cold. My husband's steak was burned on one side. My friend Janet's steak was cold. My friend Bob's walleye was cold. The service was horrible. They comped my soup and crab cake but they should have comped the whole meal. The previous visit we had here was good but this time was just awful. Manager put words in my mouth and was a bit of a smartie pants. We won't be back unless it drastically improves.
Superb again. We took my Mom out for her birthday. She's been gambling there, but never ate at the nice restaurant. She was very pleased with the steak - cooked to perfection. Very tender and tasty. Others all had steaks as well - ranging from medium to well done - and all were cooked perfectly. Great quality, great taste.
I opted for the king salmon special, and was very pleased with it as well. Great taste, cooked medium well per my request.
Pat is an awesome server. He was friendly, polite, communicated everyone's requests and needs, and really provided outstanding service. This is the 2nd or 3rd time we've eaten there on a Saturday night and I'm always happy when we get his tables. He did a little extra work to bring the violinist in to our room to play a couple of songs for my Mom - we didn't even ask.
All in all, a great experience and excellent food. My mom has already suggested that this is where we go for her next birthday! We absolutely will be making that reservation.
My steak was barely like warm when I got it. I sent it back and they out it back in the broiler to warm it up. It had no flavor at all when I got it. Texas roadhouses sirloin is much better than the filet mignon that I got here. This is 2 times in a row that my steak hasn't been good at all. Center cut used to be my favorite place for a steak but not any more 👎
