I typically love this restaurant but Valentines dinner was extremely rushed, set menu with no taste and still 140$. We received the appetizer and salad 2 min apart and the entree 2 min after that :( won’t be back

We were attending a show there at Ameristar and because it's Restaurant Week we decided to go to Great Plains Cattle Co for dinner before the show. The food was very good, the service was only OK. She didn't see to be as interested in us as she was in other tables where there were guests that dine there frequently, obvious from overheard conversations. I asked for part of my dinner to be boxed and she tossed the box on the table for me to do it myself, after I observed her carefully box the leftovers for the table next to ours. All guests, regardless if they are repeaters or first timers, should be treated the same. We're not sure if we would come back to this restaurant.

Went for restaurant week and had a great 3 course meal. Will be back for a bigger order of crabcakes for sure! The soup and risotto were both too salty, but still tasty. Loved the dessert trio!

We ate here for KC restaurant week. The diver scallops with Rissoto was exceptional. Great bartender as the cocktails were perfect. The best part of our experience was the service, from hostess through waiter and runners. We hadn’t been there for over a year but will be returning very soon!

Set menu for Restaurant Week was good, but we ended up seated by the bar. Staff were courteous, but not as attentive as hoped for. Not the treatment we would expect from an expensive steakhouse. All of the food was well-prepared and high quality. Really enjoyed my scallops! The crusted steak was good, but didn't need the topping. The little desert sampler trio was great!

Great Plains is on the top of my list in KC. Great service, food and selection of beverages makes it a great dining experience. Price is what you would expect from a good steakhouse. My recommendation: try it, you’ll like it!

Convenient place to eat before concerts or activities at the Ameristar Casino. Very good food and the service was a little slow but adequate. We were going to a concert at the Casino and it was very easy to eat here beforehand. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

The steaks at GPCC are always very good. But the prices have really soared in the past few years, and are now ridiculously high. $45 for a 16 oz ribeye? The same thing at Texas Roadhouse is $21. Plus, GPCC has poor tasting bread, and they switched to leafy greens for the salads, which taste terrible. TR has great rolls and the best salads, with fresh iceberg lettuce. If TR wasn't so annoying noisy, I would never go to GPCC again.

A good date night restaurant. Arrived 20 minutes before our reservation, we were told to come back closer to the scheduled time, there was no space at the bar to wait. The service was very good with the exception of ordering a drink from the bar, there appeared to be only one person handling the rush and it took a very long time for the drink to arrive, I was well into my salad and appetizer before it arrived; the food was good quality, the KC strip was perfection, the filet mignon was undercooked but hubby and I traded plates and all was good, the red wine sauce reduction did not compliment the filet mignon, I would recommend you order it on the side to taste unless you've had it before otherwise, it overpowers the meat. The $2 tiny desserts are perfect for a sweet taste, they are a good way to end the meal. Overall, we enjoyed our first visit.

Great place for Prime Rib. Always a good amount of food, cooked to perfection. Sides of salad and bread are delicious. And there is a great selection of extra sides that come with the meal. Baked potato is huge. Wild mushrooms are very tasty. Our server was not great but not awful. Slow to fill glasses and bring extra horseradish or salad dressing when asked. But still a great meal..

Each time we have dined here the food has gotten progressively worse. The steak was cooked unevenly and was without flavor. Waitstaff were so busy we didn't want to bother them. I was actually sick to my stomach later. We will not return.

Great Plains is a consistently good steakhouse! I particularly enjoy dining during the early evening when it is not crowded and you get the undivided attention of staff. Food is always tasty and portions are generous. Wine list is pretty decent and I can typically get a glass of one of my favorite wines from the bottle list.

Terrific service is the normal for me here.
Steve suggested 2 dishes tonight, but i passed on them for the Prime Rib.
Nice glass of wine, no dessert.
Meal came quickly- even on this busy Friday night.
I will be back soon.
