Fairbanks Steakhouse @ Hollywood Casino - Aurora Ratings and Reviews
We live in Aurora and are Steakhouse fans. Aurora is the second largest city in Illinois and woefully under-represented when it comes to quality steakhouses. We were hoping this would be a big hit. It wasn't. The hostess first asked if we were paying or using points, which is normal considering it's attached to the casino. I said we were paying and she then took us to a 6 top table when there were several 2 top tables available overlooking the river. I assumed (and I could be wrong) that maybe they were saving those for people who frequently gamble there. It was irritating to me. The décor was a bit dated, but I can live with that. The service was just ok. The drinks were average but nothing to get excited about. Ceasar Salad was over dressed. Steak was actually quite good for both of us, cooked perfectly and seasoned well. Sides were just ok and the desert (turtle cheese cake) seemed like it came right out of the package from a grocery store. We left feeling indifferent, probably won't go back.
The restaurant was busy but the food came out on time cooked perfectly
The service was great Scott is one of their better service there is very attentive to your table and knows exactly when to bring the next course out
I would recommend going and asking for Scott as your server
This was our first visit, and we were very happy with the service and the food quality. The portions are quite large, however. So next time, we will see if we can split an entree. This is an ala carte menu, so if you don't order a side, you will not get one.
This was our 1st visit to Fairbanks Steakhouse. We dined there because it is close to the Paramount Theater and very convenient for dinner before a show. We would dine there again before our next show. Prices were on the high side for the menu selections, but the food was very good. There may be an option to reduce the cost if you have a Players Card with the casino. We did not.
Fairbanks restaurant is never a disappointment. The food is consistently fresh and the service as professional and friendly as you would find at any fine food restaurant. The crab legs are outstanding, so are the steaks. Actually I've been here many times and never had a an unpleasant dining experience.
We went to Fairbanks for our 50th Wedding Anniversary dinner. Thought it would be something special. Our food was good (although somewhat overpriced). However, they knew it was a very special dinner for us and they offered absolutely nothing,,,not even a cookie! Waitress wasn’t even aware it was our 50th. The hostess did say happy anniversary....that was it. Probably will never go there again.
My lovely Girlfriend and I went to Fairbanks on 04/29/17 for our anniversary, then gambling and then to see the Beatles band American English.
I made reservations almost 2 weeks in advance. We were promptly seated, however is was in the main isle to the kitchen, not appropriate. The server was pushy, we felt like we were on an assembly line. The drinks were terrible, my dirty Martini was half full and not very good. The busmen were hoovering around trying to pick up plates you were still eating off of.
The food was very good, very hot and professionally prepared.
The overall experience was just ok, I would rather spend my 150.00 somewhere else.
This was the second time we went to Fairbanks before a play at the Paramount and both times the food and the service was excellent. Decent value for a nice steakhouse and good cuts of meat. Also, the servers are aware of what time the shows start and get you out of there in plenty of time to walk the short block to the theater.
We arrived just at opening. While things seemed a little confused we were seated promptly and our hostess took our drink orders. We both ordered the T-bone and salads. The drinks arrived and were well made with a proper amount of liqueur. We were served a large portion of sliced bread which while impressive to the eye was quite bland to the palate. The salads were both generous and flavorful. The steaks were a very high quality cut, very flavorful (We had requested maitre d' butter.) and well prepared. The wait staff was very pleasant and attentive.
