Had to wait a while when we arrived to be seated, even though we had a reservation and many tables were open. Food was great with large portions.

Waited a very long time with employees ignoring us to be seated. Was initially seated in a super noisy area open to casino. Once moved the server Jazmine was amazing, the hostess/other waitress was terrible. Food was excellent! It is noisy, less intimate and lighting not as well as it was in the past before renovation.

The food was terrible. We had the scallops which was the only thing on the menu that looked half decent. A big decline from when it was truly DJ’s at Jumers.

After the remodel the restaurant is open to the noisy casino. It used to be a nice quiet place separated from the casino. Would recommend for a nice but not upscale dining experience as it used to be.

The food and wine have almost doubled in price since the last time we visited. Understandable due to COVID, but the quality of food has gone drastically downhill. The steak and the sides were bland and didn’t include the flair that it used to have. It used to be our favorite place. Not anymore unfortunately. The ambiance sucks since it’s now missing a wall that opens to the Casino. It used to be a romantic, quiet setting. Not so much anymore. The place has gone downhill since reopening. We will not be visiting anymore.

Our anniversary. Which we put on the reservation but not sure why they asked as no one mentioned it and
Nothing special was done. Disappointing. Our 35th anniversary celebration. Food was good but
Pricey. Nice waitstaff. Didn’t use to be a family venue and I didn’t realize that had changed- couple groups with loud kids…and kids messing around. Not the romantic place it once was..

We had steaks which were cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful. The service was excellent. The environment was nice but not elegant. One end of the steak house is open and you can see into the casino.

My husband and I have been dining at DJ's for several years now and this has been by far our worst experience. They are understaffed (not their faults but service was SLOW). Prices have gone up - I ordered a $60 ribeye thinking that they upped their menu with good quality steaks - WRONG. My steak was the size of a local grocery store ribeye (that I could have bought 4 of for $60). It was mostly fat and chewy, and was presented on a layer of what I'm guessing was an A-1 & Barbecue sauce combination. Note to DJ's: if you're serving a good quality steak, you don't need weird sauce!!!! It was just NOT good. I paid for a baked potato (ala carte). It was the only decent thing about my meal except for the glob of what I can only guess was cheap margarine in a side container. My husband ordered the special which was pine nuts and raisins wrapped in a thin steak with a weird brownish-grey looking sauce. He actually said it was so-so. Since they remodeled, you have to look at the casino floor - zero ambience. We had dinner at Keller's at Isle the night before. The quality of food and experience was much better. For that matter there are dozens of better options in the Quad Cities. So disappointed in this place that we used to love.

Waiter didn’t give us the specials and check on our food.Shrimp Cocktail was hard . Onion soup with was water down with very little onions. Salmon was excellent and so was the airline chicken. Was told I couldn’t substitute veg for anything. This is three times in two months in this restaurant will not return. Coffee shop restaurant in casino has better food and nice waiters.

Steaks were not cooked as desired. Was served my whole meal on 2 individual bread plates. Dessert way over priced. Called it Strawberry Shortcake but was a cake with strawberry drizzle. Did not celebrate my girlfriend's birthday as requested when I booked reservation.

Food was very poor for à la cart restaurant with high prices. We have been to this restaurant before but since we’ve been there last they’ve remodeled and it is now very casual not elegant and fancy like an expensive restaurant usually is. I was excited to have French onion soup which turned out to be canned beef broth with a few onions and “crunchy”croutons literally thrown in the soup and what appeared to be two slices of Kraft cheese not even covering the bowl, not put under a broiler like French onion soup is supposed to be. Overall the food was was bad to many issues with every course that we ordered too many to write in a short review. Horrible experience!

Had a filet medium and it was prepared perfectly and melted in my mouth. Salad was excellent as was the soup. No room for dessert. Service was perfect. Made for a great night.

Usually everything is excellent. The fries were cold and soggy. They offered to replace them, but, it took about 45 minutes from time ordering until delivered... didn't want to wait any longer.

We went to DJ's for our anniversary dinner. The drinks and appetizers were good (expensive, but good). We both ordered steaks medium rare, when they arrived they were WELL done. I was starving and ate mine, but my wife did not finish her steak. They did take hers off the bill, but if you are going to charge $40.00 for a steak it should be cooked properly!
