My husband and I had reservations at BB Kings but arrived at the casino early and were walking around and stumbled on Itta Bena. It’s not easy to find. We actually thought they were closed but, glad we walked up the stairs to the restaurant. We sat at the bar to have a cocktail and really enjoyed the lady who was singing. We decided to stay for dinner and we are glad we did. We had the duck egg roll to start. They were excellent. I had the mushroom pasta my husband had the jambalaya. Both were excellent. The wine list is good and pricing is reasonable

Service was excellent

Definitely glad we decided to eat here.

It was our 17th anniversary and possibly the best meal and service that we had out on our anniversary.
Now the service from Erin was outside! She was on toustvop of everything, but also didn't bother us when we talking - the perfect waitress! The hostess in restaurant as well as downstairs recognized that I had a problem walking and found a wheelchair that I could use to get back to my truck after dinner our meal!

- Confusion about seating arrangements
- Took 45 minutes to get me and my date a drink
-Took over an hour to get food
- Food was definitely not worth the money
- The system was down so there were issues paying for dinner

The ambience is good, but the food was average. We ordered the Duck Spring Rolls only to be told, after our order was submitted, that they were out of duck. (Something the wait staff should be told about before service begins.).

In lieu of the springs rolls, I ordered the chicken lettuce wraps. The chicken, however, was prepared in chunks which made preparing the wraps difficult. A better chicken preparation would have been to use ground chicken.

The entrees were ample sizes, but the Shoyu Salmon and Catch of the Day entrees we ordered were too salty.

It’s doubtful we’ll return to this restaurant.

Inedible!!!! Someone, please tell me what I was served at dinner tonight? I need to be able to tell my doctor! I find it sad to have such an amazing dining venue yet, serve such horrible food!! I ordered the steak medium yet, it was tough as a nail, collards burned, corn soupy🥲. I am a “foodie”. I travel just eat. I expect an edible meal, even if it’s not my favorite.
I want to have a sit down with the owner of this establishment. I find it criminal to pay $60 for an inedible meal🤦🏽‍♀️

Food was great. Piano music was awesome. Person in next booth talked on speaker phone for entire meal. Restaurant is nice but having to go through loud lounge downstairs is a little disconcerting.

Nice, attentive staff.
The restaurant was totally occupied by a huge private party. We were unaware of this when we made reservations. When we arrived we were seated right in the middle of the party group. We felt like we were crashing the party. With such a large party going on the restaurant should have been closed to other guests.
The food choices are very limited. The salad was good. Both of us had steaks. The filet mignon was overcooked and had a burnt taste. The ribeye was dry and tough.
The atmosphere was very nice and surprisingly with such a large party going on it was not too loud.

I visited here July 11 for me and my Husband's Anniversary and I was pretty disappointed with the food. I was trying to get reservations at Central downtown which is always great, but they were booked. So I figured Itta Bena would be the next best thing as I remembered always ordering the she crab soup and crab cakes when I used to frequent the hotel in the casino. Well I ordered the She crab soup and it was not the same it was mediocre, I also ordered the mussels as an appetizer because I love all seafood, I'm from Miami (well the mussels taste like dirty water), finally I ordered a medium Steak with mashed potatoes and veggies... Originally, they brought me a thin burnt on the outside, overcooked grey on the inside ribeye steak(which took forever to cook and they didn' t have any mashed potatoes I had to get grits with it). Needless to say I sent that back... then they brought me a beautiful thick ribeye that looked delicious until I cut into it and it looked like a raw piece of Tuna and my grits were hard and extra thick. I just packed everything up to go by then I was just disgusted. However, I did eat all my veggies they were great. My Husband's food was not good either he ordered the Abita Shrimp appetizer and the Shrimp and Grits entre... The App was okay too much sauce on 3 Large shrimp and the hard lumpy grits with a few mediocre shrimp in a little bit of sauce on the top. It didn't even look appetizing. I am rather disappointed :-(

Sanchez is an excellent server!
The cozy, candlelit surroundings are tucked away from the bustling casino below. Music choice is excellent, but does disturb conversation, and blends well with the overall vibe.
The food and cocktails are divine, and they offer a fairly extensive wine list.

If I lived in Montgomery, I would frequent Itta Bena whether I cared for gambling or not. It’s a true gem.
