Possibly the best steak I have ever had--the special Cowboy char-grilled rib eye. It was huge and done perfectly--medium rare-- and it didn't have a lot of waste on it which is unusual for a rib-eye. Even my wife, who isn't a steak lover, asked for second "bites". Service was OK, although we had to remind our waiter that the wine had been chilling for over 15 minutes. Our assistant waitress made up for lack of attention and did much more than just clearing dishes. To be fair, our waiter had a large table next to us and at least one other table. The ambiance--set in the middle of a smoke-filled casino-- just has to be ignored. Concentrate on the steak.

The atmosphere was nice; however the food was not great. One of the servers brought some hush puppies to us, which we didn't like. The bread, breadsticks, and local butter was delicious. I ordered a wedge salad and the egg was medium rare, I like hard boiled eggs, so I didn't eat the egg. We ordered filet mignon for dinner and the meat was super salty. We've had better filet mignon at other places. Our places came with bone marrow, which we don't eat at all because we don't like it. It would have been nice for the servers to offer another side. We weren't told it came with bone marrow and I don't recall seeing it on the menu. It's a waste of food for people who don't eat it. The cocktails were great! The service was great too! We decided not to order dessert because we didn't want to be disappointed. Bottom line, this restaurant has its pros and cons, but it's way over priced. For high prices, I expect delicious and well seasoned food; they didn't quite deliver that. The presentation was nice, but the taste was not good.

The food was great and the chef's imagination was top-notch. However the service was below par for what was expected to be a 5-star experience. The bread was not delivered until we asked, the drinks were slow to arrive and there was very little enthusiasm shown by the server. She lacked knowledge as to the origin of the oysters and overall was average. The restaurant seemed quiet, under attended and there was no music or ambience.

This is a steakhouse, the steak was prepared good, the food presentation was excellent. The king crab legs where mushy, believe they were frozen not fresh. The cocktails were different a lot of unique flavors and mixes with such an elegant setting, you would think the cocktail menu would enhance the dining experience. Wine list is excellent at fairly reasonable price. The restaurant is located in an casino, which allows smoking, there is a slight smell of cigarette smoke while eating. We will go back for the steaks. Customer service was excellent.

its a casino restaurant thats a long drive to get there, so it must really be special. it is really nice dining. the area is still casino smoke and thats not so good. My second visit here and the food is served well and is tasty. my second visit and I am waiting to hear from the kitchen I so believe my porterhouse wasn't more than a t-bone, but they don't serve t bones! I hope this can be explained as I would love to re-visit in the future . its a 45 minute drive in this small town.
its certainly a place to try.

Service was Great!! Reservation was ready when we arrived. Friendly staff. Good food. Good wine selection. Only reason why I would not give a perfect 10 is because I had asked for my Prime Rib well done and it was more like medium. I know some people would think this to be a travesty, but, I do not like the site of blood on my plate. I just traded some of my prime rib for some of my husband's veggies and I was fine. We were super surprised that we were offered a complimentary Birthday desert eve though we were a group of 8 celebrating 4 birthdays! Each birthday person received a desert! Thanks P Y!!

PY ranks as one of the best if not THE best "steak house" in Southern Arizona which is saying something in a location where beef has been king since the days of the missions, presidios, and ranchos. The service is attentive without being overly hovering. Dean and his team made the evening memorable. The wine list is notable, while the whiskey list arguably is the top one to be found in the state for single malt aficionados. Presentations are clean and appealing; side dishes creative and delectable as perfect accompaniments to the high quality entrees; sea food appetizers almost made me forget my primary reason for the visit --BEEF. The ambiance is subtle. You can conduct a conservation comfortably--what a concept. While not for everyday dining because of the price, it is worth every cent for a special occasion. I look forward to a return visit. Bravo to Executive Chef Ryan Clark and Chef de Cuisine Roderick Le Desma.

I had the 5 course tasting and i thought it was good and the wine paired well with the food, but as a chef i beleive the entree could have been better for the price. The steak was good but the side included was a roasted tomato, bone marrow and a few potato chips. If it would have included a better side I would have given 5 stars. All of the other dishes were good.

Considering the menu prices we expected a much more formal setting. We felt over dressed in our business casual attire as there were people in flip flops and t-shirts. We really wanted a classy night out without our children a "date night" if you will. Our server was really friendly, but service was extremely slow, took a very long time to take our order and a extremely long time for our food to come. When it did arrive the presentation was beautiful ( pictures shown)! I ordered the 12oz Top Sirloin medium rare but it came very rare not medium rare...but we waited so long to get our food I didn't want to send it back, not to mention I wasn't even asked by the server if it was cooked properly. Every good steak house I have been to this question is asked every time. My husband had the Duck, very small portion and tasted very bland. We shared a side of the spicy fried brussel sprouts which were amazing, they were the best part of the whole meal hands down. When it came to desert we were looking forward to the banana creme brule but we were informed they were out, the server did offer the citrus cheesecake with their compliments. It was a nice gesture and we took him up on the offer, it was ok, very very tart.
All in all we thought the wait was extremely long to get our food which really cut into our "date night" time to explore the casino and the food is way over priced for the quality received. We probably will not be returning any time in the near future.

The chef has changed the menu quite a bit since our last visit, and it's nice to see the new dishes: lamb, duck, etc. We had the burrata appetizer and it was quite generous and accompanied by some lovely figs, but could have used a splash of balsamic vinegar. My husband's scallops were perfectly cooked, and my duck was accompanied by delicious pureed celeriac and veggies in an outstanding sauce. The star of the evening were unbelievably delicious Brussels sprouts cooked in a mustard butterscotch sauce (sounds weird but both of us couldn't stop eating them). I can't wait to go back in late February when the menu is changed again!

My fiancé and I don't have a lot of chances or time to go on dates together due to our schedules. When one of my clients suggested going to PY Steakhouse at the casino for their great steaks, I was excited. We both had the The fillet, she had the 6oz and I had the 10oz both were to be medium rare. We ordered the brussel sprouts along with the mac and cheese and opted for the lobster due to our special night. The food came and looked fantastic, that is until Stacey ( fiancé ) cut into her steak, she then asked the wait staff what the doneness looked like to her. She promptly got Dean (I think that was our waiters name) he also agreed that it was cooked well passed medium rare and apologized. I then asked if there was any lobster in the mac&cheese. Dean said that it looked as if the kitchen had simply forgotten. He then took Stacey's meal away to be fixed. Then basically took everything off the table including my meal to keep warm and the sides so it was like we were starting the meal over again. We talked and ate the bread with that amazing butter that was the star of the show.
Sorry this has gotten long and wordy!!!!
In-short I wouldn't recommend PY steakhouse to anyone.
Dean was great but with the food was unfortunately left plenty to be desired.
On top of all of this we were seated at the right of the picture in the back. One thing that bothered me at our seat was the wall. It was filthy with food splatter and was not a particularly nice view during our meal.
We both agreed that we would have had a better experience at Moby's.
It would have been nice to get our dessert for free or a percentage taken off of the meal. Just a little something to make it feel like not a complete loss of a what could have been a great meal experience
