    great dining experience...bring $$...we were given desert free as it was our anniversary....great meal...oyster presentation over the top - dry ice made a 'smoke' like entrance to table...she had rib eye (excellent) I had sword fish (just a bit too far cooked) creamed aspargas excellent and mac & cheese 5 stars...everything ala carte, which I enjoyed....our server was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back again. Steve & Marty

    Service was awesome from beginning to end. The only thing was that we ordered the Tomahawk steak and it was way too salty. But I didn’t want to complain about it.

    Next time we will ask for a table out of the main room; especially when there are multiple groups of 10 to 12. They are too noisy when we wanted a nice quite dinner where we can enjoy our conversation and hear each other even though we were sitting next to each other.

    Upon arriving we were immediately addressed by the hostess. She saw we were celebrating our anniversary and said Happy Anniversary. One minute later we were shown to a comfy booth. Soon after we were given a delicious basket of assorted rolls that were wsrm and tasty. Our waiter wished us a Happy Anniversary and took our order. We each had a Cadillac Margarita. It was very potent and tasty. The bacon wrapped shrimp arrive promptly and they were big, meaty and very tasty. We shared a kitchen sink salad with crab, shrimp. Tomatoes and avacado. Very good, enough for 4 people. The surf and turf was excellent. The filet mignon and lobster melted in your mouth. The shareable brussel sprouts with parmasan was very delicious. we had a wonderful surprise, our water brought us a chocolate mousse dessert covered in chocolate with two candles to celebrate our anniversary It is a pricey place to eat, we'll worth it.

    The restaurant is in the casino and as a result you have to walk through clouds of some before entering the restaurant. This really ruined a good evening because the restaurant smells like cigarettes.

    As usual, the food we ordered were great. The steak was well-seasoned and cooked, the pork chop was also yummy with the sides. Our server was great and recommended a very good wine. It’s our place for anniversary every year. For sure, it was a great night for our special day.

    The filet was undeniably the best, as always!! Server was polite and friendly. It was not busy and it took way to long to get our cocktails, at least 20 minutes. Later he forgot my coffee and I was never offered another. He didn’t flip open napkins to place them in our laps and did not brush off bread crumbs before serving salads. However, we did like him. There is little ambiance, the lights should be dimmed a little more. The table cloths and candles are very nice. Our biggest problem is with your total lack of a dress code The web site says something like “casual business “. We were surrounded by men in shorts and flip flops, T shots and baseball caps worn backwards!!! We are there hats inside at all? The women were not as bad, but many were unacceptable in a fine dinner house. The worst was a young woman in hip hugger shorts and a midriff top. She was 50 pounds over weight, here belly stuck out and she had a belly ring in it! Does anyone believe this is any sort of business dress?? Oh, I almost forgot the man in a sleeveless T shirt exposing his under arm hair. Pleasant dinner view!!! Just actually make a simple dress code and stick to it!! No shorts, flip flops, white under shirt or and mens sleeveless shirt and remove hats upon entering!! If you did that, it would be great!! I would also suggest some sort of glass enclosure around the bar to keep the noise down and window seats in the restaurant, we enjoy people watching. Thanks MV

    Never asked about the salad I didn't eat, just took it off the table, Never asked about wine with dinner, we had to ask a person to get her to receive our wine. Brought out a birthday cake, but didn't ask if we wanted anything else, or coffee. She acted like she didn't really want to be working! When your paying the high prices for food you expect the service to match.

    Ordered the 8oz filet and it was definitely not a filet it was the flattest piece of meet I’ve ever seen and very tough, I took one bite and that’s all I ate. The two other two with me ordered the 11oz filets and there’s were 4 times as think as mine and a lot better. Was very disappointed for what the prices were. Other wise the food was good and service as well.

    It was our 13 anniversary, the oysters were good had a couple bitter ones. We had cord chowder that was great. I had a Caesar salad, the lettuce was very wilted like it was old. The dressing was bland and the anchovy’s on top were way to salty. For dinner I ordered a custom 24oz hamburger medium rare what I got was an over cooked hamburger patty. Well done. Burner around the edges and way to salty. My wife had the chops those were fine. We. Skipped dessert. That’s about it.

    We had family visiting from out of town and they wanted to gamble. It was so convenient to take them to a nice restaurant as well as show them one of our local casinos. The food was awesome. Ronney, our server, was amazing. The ambience was classy, but not overly much. Thank you for having an array of restaurant options at Thunder Valley.

    Arrived early on purpose so we could hang in the bar and have a drink. Was not going to be possible (!) as they use the bar area for additional reserved dining, even at the bar itself. With a little rejiggering, the hostess was able to get us a spot. Bar was loud, more than I expected at a steakhouse but, I guess, should have been expected being around a bunch of gamblers. Service at the bar was good. We went back to the hostess at our reservation time. I would have thought the hostess would have come to get us as we had already checked in, but no. Was lead to our table and seated. Almost immediately, we were put off from all the cigarette odor where we were seated wafting into the dining room. We asked to be reseated and ended up in a booth back in the bar. This was less than optimal as we were back in the noise and all the flashing slots through the bars windows. Food was hit and miss, some excellent, some average. Service was excellent. Was my wife's birthday, waiter asked if we were there for a special occasion and I told him, but nothing extra was done (unlike our anniversary dinner at Ruth's Chris earlier this year). Guess I should have known better scheduling a special event at a casino restaurant, but I had high hopes given some of the reviews and word-of-mouth I had received for High Steaks. And that I have been to some excellent casino restaurants in Reno and Vegas. Sadly, High Steaks did not live up to my expectations. Unlikely we'll be going back.

    The service was amazing - extremely attentive. The food was delicious. I had the day boat scallops and they were so flavorful. My husband had lamb chops and he said they were the best he has had. The lamb had a very yummy sauce. We also shared the Kitchen Sink salad (funny name), which I thought was a little pricey but it did not disappoint. The salad was wonderful! Regardless of the price I would order it again.

    Highly anticipated, but fell short. Martini, French onion soup & creamed spinach were pretty good. Main course of prime rib & fried chicken was barely edible. Absolutely no flavor on both dishes. Prime rib was so tough. Very disappointing.

    It was my son’s birthday dinner! They ran out of prime rib. Ordered a steak and they forgot the blue cheese crust. We were kind of disappointed with the meal. I’m glad our server was great. Not sure I will go back to celebrate a special occasion since the food was over all just mediocre.
