Liked everything except the cold draft coming past our table because the front entrance was propped open. Had to keep my coat on for the whole visit, but the food service etc was great

Food was very tasty, everyone was happy with their meal. The waitress was super cheery and made us feel like her only client! Ambiance is ok, don't like that it's in a casino but the casino is closed so that made it nicer.

The service was excellent. The restaurant was quieter due to less people in the restaurant. My guest enjoyed their food, but wouldn't order it again. I was very disappointed with the sandwich I ordered. The meat was very fatty and sliced rather thick for a Reuben. We plan to go back, but will order other items instead. The food is usually, or used to be very good and great value as well. I also like the OpenTable to book reservations. Awesome system.

We ordered the Thunder Pizza, but we found it really spicy and could not consume it. The taste was fine; it was just overpowering to our taste. Without question, the server removed it and offered a Margherita pizza which we knew to be without a lot of spice. It was good.
I ordered the steak and fries. The steak was done exactly to my liking and the fries were flavorful.
The server, as have been all the servers we've had at Match was very courteous and efficient.
