The salad and desert were great. However, the filet I ordered medium rare and it was medium well. My sister had dover sole which was also overcooked. Had been here before and we both had ordered the same thing and at that time if was excellent, but not this time. It was very disappointing as it was my birthday. Told the waitress this and they didn't even offer us a complimentary cup of coffee.

Always a great place to have a relaxing dinner. The special was a great value and a 9 out of 10 for taste.

The only exception I had was that; the iceberg salad wedge was not crisp or all around fresh looking.
There was a little/slight wilted on the edges as though it had been cut earlier in the evening or day.

This is the second time in 2 weeks that gegie(hostess) greeted me this time she stood in the center of the dining room(empty)to decide where to seat me & then didnot give me a menu the other time it was worse. I had fr onion soup that had a strange taste like oregano who puts that in onion soup it took away the good taste and also the coupon in the soup filled 1/2 the tourein made it very unappetizing for being upscale dining you have a long way to go to compete with other casinos. The steak was fabulous bad potato small and very plain if your paying these prices you could have onions bacon or cheese to add to it. Desserts reasonably priced veg’s were cheap and unappealing mashed potatoes looked terrible like you ran out of instant potatoes and so dry they cracked when you cut into them

The overall experience was terrific. The only complaint was the steak was tough and contained a lot of fat. Also we were there for our 30th wedding anniversary . When I booked the table I specified this however there wasn't any extra attention.

I had a $200 certificate compliments of GVC. I ordered a GVC salad and the lobster tail. The salad was good. But, the lobster was overcooked and tough. It's advertised as $60 on your menu. So, I thought the kitchen should have done a better job of cooking it right. My girlfriend order the filet and she said it was good and the onion soup was presented nicely.

They need a vastly improved menu, with more choices. The portions were smallish and my choice, veal chops, was disappointing as if was tough. My meal was sort of comped but the prices were very high for what they offered.

Food was very good, however, my steak was supposed to be medium to medium well and it came out totally well done. my guest's steak was to be rare and it came out medium to medium rare.
service was good, however, server failed to inform us about the specials of the day - i overheard it at the next table, which is how i knew about the specials. atmosphere is very nice - this is not my first time here, and yes, i will be back.

On Thursday nights, Buckingham's offers their Surf and Turf for $29.99 and it is a great deal. The steak was mouth watering and the lobster tail was served with Lemon and Drawn Butter. The atmosphere was upscale and the service was attentive.

Absolutely fantastic meal! My fillet was excellent, and the staff and waiters were quick to refill drinks. Took awhile for the host to seat us, not sure why as the restaurant was not busy. I also found the music playing in the restaurant to be a little irritating- some classical or less ‘elevator’ type music would probably be more fitting!

We always ask for Cindy to be our waitress, it is liking coming home to see an old friend. She is the best. I did have a terrible reaction to the food this visit and not sure if it was the tenderizer used on the Porterhouse steak or the crab cakes. It was a very uncomfortable day after.
