The prime rib and rib eye steak were outstanding, some of the best we have had recently in Kansas City. Too pricy to become a regular dinner restaurant, $9 for a side of potatoes, we expected a huge side to share....but it was just a normal side. The steaks were on the larger side but that was expected at this price. Service was outstanding, so no complaints on the very enjoyable meal. Compliments to the manager and the food runner...both were present and working quickly to keep everything running smoothly. We saw no tables with any issues....rare these days. We recommend if the wallet allows!

The dinner was excellent from the cocktail to the end of the meal.And the service was excellent! My husband had a delicious prime rib and I had filet mignon. Both were cooked to our specifications. It appeared that some of the diners were regulars so that is always a good sign.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Absolutely love having dinner here, but I must admit seem that service was a little slow but I understand with the current business and economic practice at the moment that's to be expected. I only made that comment to bring recognition that is well deserved to the men and women who work in the industry of providing services for their patrons and their customers. High five to the entire staff at the Great plains cattle Company.

We were celebrating a 40th anniversary. Our server was polite, professional and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was quiet and made dinner conversation easy. Our meals were excellent. Everything was cooked to specification. The only drawback was that it got busy and we weren't offered dessert! I didn't complain but its the first time that has happened. Overall, we had a great time and will be back.

Let me start with I'm a foodie! So doesn't seem natural for anyone who know me to eat here, that being said about twice a year I get a hankering for prime rib and a wedge salad do others do the wedge with equal or greater Newonce yes! Does anyone in KC do prime rib better not in my opinion! Been going 2 times a year for that order Specifically for 15 years and have never not had it served perfectly to my temp requirements mine medium rare my husband medium. I live in the winter or summer as casinos are cool there Dark cowboy low light decor is cozy with several fireplaces.

You can’t order a loaded bake potato they bring you cheese and butter and sour cream in bowls and make you fix it. No bacon or chives. Potato was warmed up not fresh. When you order prime rib that’s all you get no sides come with it every thing is priced separate. Use to be a great treat now just ok and expensive.

Hate that they have gone to everything is ala carte. Prices have gone out of site. Would only recommend to people who have and are using lots of casino points. Food was excellent, but there are a lot of good steak and seafood restaurants in the area where prices include salad and side and at much more reasonable prices.

Food was excellent. I chose to eat here by myself rather than go to the ballgame due to temps outside. I felt Very comfortable. Service was fast and efficient. I wanted to try a
KC steak so it ended up being a little pricey as steak dishes are ala crate but it was an excellent steak. I tried the carrot soufflé and enjoyed it. Wish I would have tried the onion soup instead of salad but that was me not sure which to choose I’m thinking it would have been good

The waiter wasn’t the greatest. It took forever to get an order in. Forever to get our bar drinks. He was bossy and told me to take items that I didn’t want because I have a dairy allergy. I didn’t want the horseradish cream for my prime rib because I didn’t want to chance it getting on my meat but he insisted on it me getting it so my husband could have it. I wanted my asparagus sautéed in olive oil but he insisted steamed is what I needed even though it I didn’t because it I knew it would be bland - and it was bland. Other than that the rest oft he serving crew was wonderful and the food was very delicious - except the asparagus which was not prepared how I wanted to begin with.

The service & atmosphere was great but unfortunately the food wasn’t what we had remembered from our previous time there. My wife’s steak had too much seasoning on it & her scallops were overcooked, fishy. She couldn’t even finish them & she loves scallops.

Service was great! Comments on prime rib “it’s ok” salmon was dry, dessert was yummy, bread was good but limited. Martini was good. Prices for the Midwest were excessive. Don’t raise the prices during a pandemic.
