We were there to celebrate my birthday and the only person who acknowledged me was the hostess. Our server came off like he didn't want to be there. He messed up the dessert request as well, we asked for 3 desserts we got 4, we asked lime cheese cake and got strawberry. He even put the leftovers in a bag on its side. Overall couldn't get out of there fast enough.

We had a wonderful meal. Two of us had the Grilled Veal Chop which was just superb and will definitely order next time. Third person had the Pea and Bacon Risotto which is not enough for a man to eat. He definitely enjoyed having some of my veal. Going back very soon. Highly recommend.

Our waiter was fantastic. Unfortunately the food was bland . Mussels didn’t have much flavour , the scallops were $18 and there was only 3 . And no they weren’t large or even medium . The lamb was around $30 and it was 2 very small pieces on some mashed potatoes. Very disappointed in the lack of flavour and the portions

My wife ordered the surf and turf (Medium Rare). When it arrived, the steak was over cooked to the point of being medium well. Mistakes happen. What I was impressed about was how quickly the matter was rectified and how both the waitress and management continued to check on us throughout the meal to ensure everything was okay. Customer service was well beyond our expectations!

We have been many times my husband and I. All servers have been wonderful. But we had a new Person On Sunday night. Her name was Brittney?? (I hope I have her name correct). I know she was new because I asked her. And told her how amazing of a server she was. Relaxed attentive and and so friendly. Most people only here when there is a problem but more she say when the service and especially their server was amazing. Great job !!!

I was very disappointed with the food. I had the burger, the bread tasted stale and the meat was thin like a Mcdonalds burger with very little flavor. I was very disappointed.

We had a reservation for Valentines night dinner. We found the restaurant nice for atmosphere and noise level, are food was not up to par. We had ordered beef short ribs which they were out of and substituted steak in place of for same price which was acceptable and then we added a lobster tail each. Both our lobster tails were cold and not cooked inside so not enjoyed for the price. Service was good both by hostess and server. Not sure about returning.

We went Saturday night just after 5:00 PM as we were seeing a moving at 7. We were seated away from the other couple dining which was nice as it felt like we had private dining. We were away from the sounds and lights of the casino games which also helped create a nicer atmosphere. Our server was a very kind and efficient man. He was very guest-oriented and prompt. We really enjoyed being seated at one of his tables. Food came out quickly and was fresh. We started with the scallops then shared the bison sliders and bison meatloaf. For $20, I was expecting larger or higher-quantity of scallops. It was quite a large portion of risotto with only three quarter-sized scallops looking kind of lonely on top. They were delicious though and the risotto was very filling. Overall, a nice dining experience and we would come back again!

Thank you again for a wonderful dining experience! Tonight we had the cod and it was amazing, so delicious!
So many times, I have written a review and either recognized the chef and the servers but tonight I also wanted to recognize the hostess, Syndi! She is always so friendly, accommodating, and personable. I have to apologize for never recognizing her before, she is amazing! Thank you! Syndi for always making our dining experience a pleasant experience.

The food was delicious and the service was great. A little bit low on ambiance (but it is in a casino so there isn't much they can do about that).
My recommendation for 2 people: split one or two appetizers and/or small plates as well as the "From the Smoker" main course. It was a ton of food and everything on the plate was perfect.

Most food was great. Service was iffy. No bread was brought to the table. The appetizer plates were not taken off the table just pushed over when the mains came. The waiter did not come to see how the meal was after we received it, there was a problem with the piece of brisket, it was all fat. After we were done eating we had to flag him down showed him the brisket he said it was not right and brought us a new slice, but we were done eating. Been there every year for 14 years never saw it like that.

We dined here before going to a show. We were unaware until we arrived that the menu differs on show nights as compared to non-show nights (the menu was condensed). Our server was pleasant, but due to this being a show night he was extremely busy and unable to pay as much attention to our table as I would have expected. The food was good but not great, but the location is convenient if attending a show.
