My husband and I had dinner at Emeril’s Fish House before we went to see Steve Martin and Martin Short. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server was very friendly, attentive, and efficient. Our drinks, entrees and desserts were outstanding. I had fried oysters and they were the best I ever ate. My husband had the chicken and it was good too. I had the goat cheese cheesecake and my hubby had the banana cream pie. They were also good. I would highly recommend Emeril’s Fish House.

The ambiance is very nice here and the food was quite delicious. My wife had the Shrimp and Scallops and I had the fish and chips. The food came out fairly quickly considering how busy they were and it was hot and fresh and excellent. We were running a little late for a show that night, so the waitress was kind enough to take care of our bill while we were eating which allowed us to get to our show on time. Our waitress (Cindy) was knowledgeable and very friendly. A+ on the service. With drinks, our bill came to about $70 which I thought was worth every penny. Highly recommend you give it a shot.

I ordered the shrimp and scallop dish with the lemon butter sauce. The dish was cooked perfectly. I enjoy my meal every time I come , and the wait staff is very pleasant. The manager, Greg, is exceptional.

Enjoyed the food, service was excellent. The only thing I would suggest is people with reservations should be in a separate line to get into the restaurant, not stand in line with those that have no reservations.

Generally, when we have dinner at this restaurant, everything is outstanding from the service to the food. On this particular night, the night of the 1 million dollar drawing, the service was poor. I do not believe it was the wait-staff's fault; they were on the run constantly. I believe, there should have been more wait-staff to accommodate the amount of people at the restaurant.

The service and ambiance was good. Unfortunately, I decided to get the seafood paella, which was awful. Having tried paella many times, this was well below par. The sauce was unrecognizable and without taste. Why did they stop serving the Etouffe, which was great. But my server was great and was most gracious and brought me something different. I will go back, but will never order the paella again.

Waitress Krista was sweet and helpful but at the same time, let us go at our own pace and left us to chat and catch up. Much appreciated. Dinner was great and worth the price. And Emeril himself was there, so what more could you hope for?!

One of us had the sea bass. It had a fishy taste. Two had the crab cakes. There were 2 kn the plate, both a nice size, but very bland. The corn hash was very good. The last had the shrimp and grits. Cant compare since none of us have had grits before. The brussel sprout side we had sounded better in the description. They were actually undercooked. All in all, not a great dining experience. The service however, was very good.

When this place first opened it was a major letdown. But now it has come leaps and bounds since then, presentation and food quality is terrific, great service. Most times I prefer it over the Chop House.

We have been here a few times...for us it’s the ONLY place to eat at Wind Creek! The wait staff is very professional and friendly. The bartender is on pointe. It makes our experience so memorable. (Even if we lose in the casino!)

Emeril's Fish House had a good selection of cocktails and wines and nice selection on the menu. Overall a good experience. The food and drinks were very good. The service was polite and helpful but very slow: we waited about 15 minutes after checking in for our reservation to be seated though the restaurant was not crowded. Our waitress was very slow to appear as was our food, and our dinner for 5 people with cocktails, appetizers, dinner and desserts took over 2 1/2 hours. Was not fond of having to leave the restaurant and walk through a smoke-filled casino to use the restroom.

We have dinned at Emeril's Fish House before. We were disappointed in the food. The seafood paella was blah. While I tried to explain this to our server she quickly threw a dessert menu on the table. The plate was hot but most of the food was luke warm. We visit the Casino every other month. Maybe we will have to try another option.

Very beautiful restaurant, classy. Our waitress explained everything, and was very attentive without being in the way. Now this is constructive criticism. It was our 47 wedding anniversary, and we both ordered Tanqueray gin and tonics. Mine was right on, my wife's tasted like a double, and she only had a couple of sips, and I finished it.

We split a wedge salad, and it was big enough for the both of us, and very good. The blue cheese crumbles came mostly in a lump, but still very good.

My wife had shrimp and scallops, which she really liked, and I had the Seafood Paella, which was very good, but I question why you would include such small muscles. Let them mature.

Overall everything was very good, and thank you for the ice cream. Yes, we will be back to try something from the land.

felt rushed by our waitress not very friendly waitress , some food was good cold shrimp ,little neck clam s ,hushpuppys, but steak my husband had had gristle running thru the whole steak it was cooked well tasted good and he hates throwing any food away so he ate it anyway . my husband talked to manager about it (not looking for a free meal) but a discount would have been nice since the meal was VERY EXPENSIVE $145.00 and manager could see all the steak that could not be eaten but gave us a piece of pie (which was not that good either) to make up for a bad steak we looked for a nice place to eat for our anniversary but were very disappointed with our choice it was our first time there and expected so much more and would not recommend the fish house

I have often recommended the Fish House to my friends. It’s always difficult deciding what to order because there are so many tasty dishes on the menu.
Krista is an excellent waitress. We always try to have her serve our table. However, when Krista is unavailable, everyone else that served our table has been excellent.
Good food, reasonable prices, and nice people make this restaurant a must!!

Except this time. Too much breading on the oysters. It took away from the taste.

Will not go back. Made a reservation, got there 10 minutes early and greeted warmly and were told that it would just be a few minutes to get our table ready. We decided to get a drink at the bar and told the host we would be there. 15 minutes went by and we checked on the status of the table and were again told that they were getting it ready and would just be a few minutes more. Another 15 minutes passed, we went back again to check and were told that they had called our name 3 times and they ended up giving our table away. They did finally accommodate us, so at this point we told the waitress that we were going to the 8:00 show (it was 7:10 by now). We were served 25 minutes later (after the table seated next us who sat after us already got their food.) We rushed to eat, were not checked on until we had to leave and honestly the food was overpriced and average. Very disappointed.

Excellent service from Greta. Host stopped by and chatted with us. Greta was helpful in advising us on our food and drink choices. Food was served with appropriate timing and quality was very good. One of my husband's side dishes was not served and we could not get anyone's attention to ask for it. Someone should have checked in with us after the food was served. I indicated on our Open Table reservation that it was my husband's birthday and also informed the host after we were seated but it was not acknowledged in any way. Although some of the small touches were missing we would still return to this restaurant.
