    We made reservations for the Thanksgiving diner on at 7:30. When we got there we were told you were out of turkey!! We have driven 2+ hours to get there for (our) Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner. Wouldn't you think on a special holiday, like Thanksgiving your restaurant would have more than enough on hand for your customers? Would you recommend Kankakee Grille - Four Winds Casino to a friend? NO NOT AT THIS TIME

    Seating was quick....Server was new, but friendly......Forgot the drinks (soup brought first).....The Thanksgiving Special was all inclusive, but the desert was added to very the bill (then removed)....the final bill was presented with the credit card without a pen. The soup was great....the entree was plentiful.....really needed gravy on the potatoes and dressing....the veggies were almost raw (way too el-dente).....Cheese cake was good (had to take half home). May not do this next year.

    Dined at Kankakee Grille for a wonderful dinner- Caesar’s salad, crab cakes with a delicious corn relish, and ravioli. Closed with splitting a slice of chocolate cheesecake with a side of caramel sauce that was amazing! Emmie was our waitress and she was courteous and friendly. She made our dinner a special night out for two friends.

    We gave this restaurant another chance after a previous bad experience. It’s still terrible. Slow service. Soup was forgotten. I had to ask for the fixings that were to come with the nachos, served lukewarm. It was not great. I could tell that the waitress was very overwhelmed, but I chose to be kind rather than bombard her with complaints. Do something about this restaurant, in 9 months not a thing has improved. Need a change in management and better quality control. The best thing about this place is that they accept open table reservations.

    Overall Kankakee Grill is just ok. The food is mediocre. The calamari was rubbery, and had a strong fishy taste. The filet mignon was ok. If you have points to spare use them on a meal.

    Service in general is good. However, the time it takes to get a draft beer to the table can be very long. We ordered a soft drink and a beer when we made our entree order. The soft drink was delivered in minutes. The beer didn’t arrive until the appetizers were delivered. - at least 10 -15 minutes later This is not the first time this has happened. The beer must have been poured awhile earlier because it wasn’t as cold as it normally would be. I don’t have this problem when I am served dinner at the bar. I believe that the server was just not attentive enough.

    We ordered appetizers and chicken sandwhiches. Took our food over an hour to come out and it was not fresh. The restaurant was completely empty so the wait time and the food was ridiculous. Literally taste as if they just warmed it up in the microwave. Cheese wasn’t even fully melted. Waitress only checked on us once. Lemonade was watered down. Calamari was burnt. Fries were soggy. Absolutely terrible experience

    Our waitress started out amazing, her name was Stacy. We went on a Saturday night, I understand it’s busy. I was prepared to be patient. Drinks came out promptly as did our jalapeño dip appetizer. That was delicious. We put our order In and our waitress disappeared for about 40 mins. I do believe she was one of the few waitresses BUT I saw managers and hostesses walking around, I feel like maybe they could have done more to help her if she was that busy. I saw a HUGE amount of carry out orders being taken, which would have been ok but I feel like that tacked on another 45 mins of waiting for our dinner to be ready. The waitress dropped off the food and we never saw her again. My boyfriend ordered the chicken sandwich he said it was ok but his wild rice was severely severely over cooked. It was actually dried out, inedible. I cook see how over cooked it was from across the table. My burger was decent nothing to write home about. The band was very very good. We waited another 45 mins and no one came so give us a box/ check/ drink anything. My boyfriend finally went up to the bar and Ryan was happy to help, he could see we had been sitting there for awhile. He happily got us takeout boxes and our check. He also ran the card and made sure we had we were taken care of. Thank you Ryan!
