Portions were very small. Nothing special, bar food at its best. Drinks were delicious. They were overwhelmed there was a concert in the casino that night and they just couldn’t keep up with the crowd.

The burger was very over salted. The worst burger I have had. The Teriyaki skewers were overpriced. They have good flavor, but the meat was not the best. I have had good meals at this restaurant and this was one of the worst visits to a restaurant I have encountered.

We chose this restaurant as our teens would be happy with the menu. Starting from drinks through dinner, service was so so and restaurant was not crowded. Food quantity and quality was subpar at best. The dishes looked like Applebee’s not MJ’s! My husband’s calamari contained no tentacles and his main dish of filet tips bowl, let’s put it this way, it’s better at Moe’s! The meat was grisly which it should NOT be for a filet and rice and veggies were minimal and over cooked ! All in all I would NOT recommend for the price, $240 for 4 with good tip, so not worth it! Much better options for the money at the casino. We won’t be back!

Fun place for dinner. Casual and lots of games to watch. The wings are really good, and the service is spot on. We went away from our burger and sandwich favorites and got two of the steak entrees. Both were pretty good, but not nearly as good as we've had next door at MJ Steakhouse. Will stick with the more casual fare going forward which is always awesome.
