Dianne is an outstanding server.
The Crab Cakes were the best I have ever had.
Desserts are huge and worth every bite.

Sea bass was a little overcooked.

The petite filet and sea bass were both underseasoned insomuch that one needed the sauce/dip to enjoy each protein. I prefer if they are able to stand alone and then the dip/sauce just amplifies the flavor of the protein.

Nice restaurant though. Not sure we'll be back because it's in the casino. We're rarely in that area.

Had a good meal, as usual. Food is expensive but that’s what I’ve can expect from high end chophouse. Little dark in there need to turn light from dim. Since it’s inside of casino Rivers you need to show your vaccination card and id to get in the casino and then to restaurant in the back of casino. Bummer that they are closing their doors on 1/30 due to pandemic.

My $72 Porterhouse was slightly over cooked and at that price I expect perfection. The lobster bisque was far too salty. The restaurant was as dead as could be. Only two other tables were in use. There were no Cabernets by the glass and the desserts were limited to three options, one of which was large enough for a party twice our size. Our waiter, Joe, was capable and friendly. I would definitely not return but I understand that the restaurant is closely next month anyway.

Food has been hit and miss in the past, but this visit was great. Perfect steaks and sides, attentive service. Filet was fine and juicy, so was the porterhouse. The cocktail shrimp in the past have been a little tough (overcooked) but not tonight.

I was expecting a different atmosphere. I was disappointed when we were escorted to the rear away from the piano area when we had made reservations. We were giving our information when some White customers walked in and took the last table. This was a birthday celebration so when my fiancé announced his disappointment. I asked to be moved, at that point the people who took the last table must’ve decided they wanted to move, so we were given their table. I wasn’t aware that you could wear hoodies, sneakers etc., there was even a baby next to us. I wasn’t pleased because your food prices reflected a different atmosphere. I thought it would be more like the Capital Grille. Your food was delicious as were your drinks. When I asked if you do anything for birthday celebrations, I was told no! But you can buy a cake!?! I wasn’t asking for free food, I only wanted to know if you had something special that would be done.

I was pleased with the food and the service from my server. However, I ordered a vegetable that had bacon (totally my fault for not reading the small print) and I thought it would have been nice for management to remove it from my bill when I told them my mistake; I don’t eat meat!!! Oh well. Lesson learned. I’m not sure about going back though, as I now have a bad taste in my mouth!!!

This was our first time at Hugo's, and it won't be the last. We thoroughly enjoyed this Restaurant inside Bet Rivers Casino. Service was excellent as the waitress was very attentive to our needs and checked on us constantly. Food was outstanding and lived-up to our high expectations. There were not many patrons in the restaurant even though it was Saturday. I suspect they are still recovering from COVID, but well worth a visit. Try the strawberry mule drink or the pineapple martini - both are awesome. Live Music was playing in the cocktail bar while we sat in the dining room which was an unexpected bonus.

Food was fresh and tasty.. we had the calamari was a first but good, Buffalo shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops and seared scallops with pesto, the seared scallops were good but way too salty.. my guest even confirmed so I had to send them back but the atmosphere partnered with a live pianist was a good start to the evening.

The service was amazing. Our waiter was so bomb and took really good care of us. The food however was just ok. The Buffalo shrimp appetizer was the wow factor. It’s actually way better than red stone in my opinion. My prime rib dip was very basic and my bf was only half way satisfied with his Cajun chicken and shrimp. The drinks although tasty were basic drinks with special names. No cool cocktails. One visit was good enough. I don’t think I’ll go back.

Dined alone at the bar after biking 66 miles. Staff was extraordinary friendly. Food was excellent. Had the sea bass. Blackened with rice and broccoli - all cooked to perfection. Feel like I’m refueled to finish my bike ride to Philly. I’ll be back when in Princeton NJ.
