I so looked forward to a Professionally cooked Thanksgiving Dinner. The meal was awful. Turkey was dry and tasteless. Expensive also. I do not mind paying for a meal if it is worth it. This meal was a rip off. And to think that Thunder Valley is not satisfied making tons of money from its Gamblers, it has to turn around and burn the people that come to High Steaks. I'll never be back.

Our party of 4 had a wonderful time. Our server, Michael P., and his assistants were more than attentive. He also answered questions that we had about the offerings for Thanksgiving dinner. The courses were timed perfectly. For 2 of us that could not finish our main dishes and desserts, they were very accommodating in packing our items up to go. I've already made reservations for Christmas dinner. Thank you to all that made our holiday special.

Started in the bar for a glass of bubbly for husband's birthday. Moved to the dining room where we had the Tuesday Prime Rib special with a couple of sides and a great bottle of wine. Food was excellent, portions large, service incredible. Will definitely go back (and ask for the same server).

Love that we don't have to drive to Vegas or LA for an amazing 5-star steakhouse experience. The food is absolutely top class, and the service is on point, friendly and accommodating. It's a bit noisy when full (especially near the bar), but other than that we have ZERO complaints and will be back many times more!!

We have been going to Thunder Valley Steak house for 14 years and it is the best restaurant we have ever been too and we have been t restaurants around the U.S. and the world.
The service and food are the best.
You can share most all dinner and apps at no extra cost. They are brought to the table in separate plates and it still a good proportion. We can not wait to go again!

Food as usual was outstanding. Out Server Tristan was on top of everything to make sure that we had a pleasant time. One of the wait staff seemed to be in a hurry to get us out as she took all of the dinnerware and left my wife holding a roll with no dish to sit it down on.

The roasted corn lobster bisque is always good... my husband ordered the halibut as it was the special... not very tasty... I ordered the scallops last time and they weren't very good either....our daughter ordered chicken and it was good... I had a salad and it hardly had any dressing on it... We do like to go there and now know not to order fish....

The food is always great and never a disappointment. However our server seemed to be distracted with other tables and we felt ignored. We drove almost 1 1/2 hrs for our 5 yr Anniversary and it was my boyfriend's first time and I raved so much of the food and service. He love'd the food but wasn't to happy about the service.

Food was just ok. We both ordered the prime rib, but what we received did not resemble prime rib. The portions were adequate, but the meat was tough and looked like an unknown cut of meat.
Service was good and the ambiance was nice. I would be nice if there was parking available right outside the restaurant to avoid a long walk through a smoke filled casino. LIke many people, I do not trust valet parking, too many bad experiences. Prices were high compared to similar venues.
