Jack Binion's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
We’d been here before several years ago and had an excellent experience. We were nervous about all of the terrible reviews regarding service lately and decided to try our luck. The terrible reviews were spot on. Service was excruciatingly slow- 30 minutes for a round of drinks for 2 people, 30 minute wait for bread, 70+ minute wait for main course. The server’s explanation (Ryan) was that it was a show night and he was sorry that we chose to come on this particular evening (our Anniversary). Really??? Binion’s hasn’t gotten the hang of it yet? Lame excuse. The total experience was over 3 hours. The only saving grace was that we were given a gift certificate so we only had to kick in $60. We were not the only unhappy guests, people complained all around us and in the reatroom. Save your time and money and go to the city for a fine dining steak house. Never again!
The decor is stunning. The oversized burgundy booths are elegant and inviting. I love the Romantic Atmosphere.
Lauren assisted us with our menu selections. My fiance ordered a 16oz Rib Eye that was satisfying to say the least. And my 12oz Filet Mignon was seasoned to perfection, no enhancements required. To compliment the steaks we had mashed potatoes with carmalized onions and asparagus. I chose the vanilla cheese cake
for my birthday desert. Wow! What a Great Celebration!
We were using a Diamond reward so that make it very affordable. They over cooked the ribeye, the spinach salad was fine but just fine, the mashed potatoes were uninspired. We heard the staff apologize at every table for something. Not up to steakhouse standards. We would not go back unless we had another reward that had to be used.
Servers Maria and Carmen were great.
Our appetizers, Oyster Rockerfeller, was cold as hell. After a moment, we were given hot appetizers.
For our main course, our steaks appeared to have been pre cooked and cold, the asparagus and baked potatoe was cold, the perch w/ spinach was lukewarm and cold spinach. My best friends salmon and organic spinach was quality. That was unable to be resolved because we had a show to attend and was 30min late.
For the prices that are charged, food quality should be excellent.
I have dined there two times before. This was my first seating in the dining room. The waitress was great. I ordered the calamari as I have every other visit. However this time I was very disappointed. The size of the calamri pieces were very small. They were cooked perefectly and tasted great. I would love to enjoy them again the same way I did before.
Second trip to this restaurant, but not as good as the first. Food was good, but also plain. Also we felt very rushed. Salads arrived before we were done with the appetizer and main course arrived shortly after the salads. Was in and out within an hour which was highly unusual for us. They do have a wonderful view of the lake though. All in all the meal was just okay.
The food was very good. Service was lacking a bit, very polite, but she forgot our drinks more than once. And the fellow that brought the food forgot the ketchup and A-1 sauce I requested. which I like with the meal before it got cold, my fries did get cold before I received it on the second request. When you are paying that kind of money I should have to request things more than once ---they were very polite but they need to work on keeping the guests from waiting --I eat on a regular basis at Ruth Chris in Chicago and I can't think of a time that this happened there.
My husband and I had an early dinner as a Diamond Card Celebration. First time at the steakhouse. Food was delicious, service was great. We are not used to all the attention we received. Prices were a little steep for us to return. Hope to earn another dinner in the coming year. We would like to thank the Rewards Department for this great dinner.
I love the view of Lake Michigan. On a Thursday late afternoon there were very few diners. The waiter's descriptions of the salads and the Lake Perch were not accurate. My guest asked questions about the basil vinaigrette and it was described as mild which it had a strong flavor of basil and she had to ask for another type of dressing. Also, she asked about the Lake Perch which was described as pan fried with some house spices. She described it as having no taste and small limp pieces of perch. At one point our waiter disappeared for quite some time and we had to flag down another staff member.
The only complaint I had was that a half salad was not offered as In most steakhouses and it was very large for one person in combination of the rest of the meal. My salmon was delicious. The birthday serving was beautiful however I wasn't given any options and neither my guest nor I eat cheesecake. The decorative pieces surrounding the cheesecake however were very good.
Everyone was very attentive to our needs. Service was great and we even had an after meal cocktail at the bar. The bar host was friendly, social and made us very yummy libations. Me and my extremely handsome companion can not wait to return to Jack Binion again for what we know will be another great experience.
Been her now 4 times. Other 3 were amazing, so since it has always been our top pick we decided to just go and eat as we don't gamble. However this time steak was a bit over cooked, no big deal but absolutely no taste. Like as if it sat in water and boiled the steaks, mushroom and onions. I would possibly try again but for a dinner between 2 close to $100 for just your steak and sides you want to make sure it's amazing every time!
But we did let server know and the manager gave us a free dessert that we did eat at home, that was so good! Drinks are great too.
It was great scenery, food and service. I didn't realize the restaurant was inside the casino. I was glad that it was. The weather was rainy and I thought we would get caught on the rain but we went from the parking garage right into the casino to the restaurant. Very friendly atmosphere, right on the lake
Perfect steaks and friendly attentive service. Only down side on our visit were a couple of large groups were standing at the hostess stand clogging up the entryway and several of us needed to check in. When I made my way to the stand the host was nowhere around. Later I found out he was attending to a minor issue but like I said things got clogged up. I finally checked in about 10 minutes after my reservation time and was promptly seated. All was great after that.
I don't recommend going without reservations. The group in front of me was unable to be seated because they were booked for the night.
We've eaten here many times before and came again just before a concert at the Venue. The food was quite good as usual, and the service very prompt and professional (thank you Mary for the recommendations, you were right on point!) We still give Binion's high marks in an area that doesn't provide a whole lot of choices for a fine dining experience.
