1904 Steak House at River City Casino & Hotel Ratings and Reviews

This is difficult for me to review. The food and staff were excellent and as a restaurant it is a wonderful place. However, as part of a casino complex getting to it required a trip through a smoke (cigarette) filled area. My wife has asthma and it took three hits of her emergency inhaler to calm her breathing. We won't (can't) go back, but not because of the restaurant itself.

Over priced. Steaks were very salty and very bland. $60 porterhouse was definitely not worth the price hardly any marbling. Was my second visit, first visit I loved this time around not so much. Service was just fine.

In order to get to the dining room, one must pass through the lounge. The carry over noise from the lounge is disturbing for a quiet dinner. The lounge then has its patrons opening the door to go outside to smoke. The door opening makes it extremely cold in the dining room.
The filet mignon is always tender and flavorful.

My wife and I ate dinner before attending the Sara Evans concert in the Event Center. The meal was a great start to a wonderful evening. We loved the atmosphere and friendly staff. Steaks were absolutely perfect and dessert was the perfect end to our experience.

The filet is 26. There's the warning. Every other steak house it is 40-50. How do they do it? They claim their meat is choice/prime, aged in a special process.
What was delivered was pseudo filet, obvious from the first cut. The grain was coarse and structured totally unlike a filet. It had been infused with sufficient tenderizer that the msg/salt burned the tongue. It was properly prepared.
The apps were good and properly prepared.

Typical high priced steak house, Food was good, nice quite setting. I prefer J. Gilberts restaurant and food better but my wife and I wanted to try something new. We are satisfied with our experience, doubt we'll ever go back as we prefer J. Gilbert's restaurant.

Very nice atmosphere, food and service. The half moon shaped both was a unique cozy table for two. The steak and the lamb were packed with flavor. The wait staff worked well as a team. The background music could have been a bit louder as it would have helped drown out the rowdy crowd of gamblers that were enjoying the restaurants bar. Otherwise glad to have made the drive. Well worth the money spent.

Food was phenomenal! Service was outstanding! Sadly, the outer bar has been turned into a lounge like area wherein the electric guitar could be heard throughout dinner (along with the applause for him), and there were several sporting events on the tv's. Either this should be fine dining, with little interruption, or a sports bar/lounge, but not all 3. Several times, conversation was drowned out by the cheers from the bar area.

we went to pinnacle club with another couple had a blast. Chris was a excellent bartender and the service was awesome. Perry woods was playing guitar an also was excellent we left good tips for both and will b e back again.

The service was great. The bread and butter at the start of the meal was delicious, with a truffle butter. My husband ordered a steak. It was the best steak either of us had ever eaten. You could cut through it like butter. I ordered the brick chicken. The chicken was moist and the skin crunchy. It came with a delicious au jus sauce with a buttery flavor. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for an exceptional meal in a great environment.

We were at the 1904 Steakhouse on Oct. 15, 2016 for our anniversary. We totally enjoyed our dining experience. We split the bone in cowboy ribeye and it was fabulous. Mary was our waitress and she was so nice. We will be back soon.

Truly fantastic. The food, drinks and staff were tremendous along with a relaxed vibe that added to the meal. Great restaurant...not simply a good "casino restaurant." I would dine here again regardless of whether I planned to gamble. Yes, it was that good.

1904 has always been one of our favorite places to eat. Jim has created a wonderful team that makes your meal very enjoyable. First time I had the new lamb chop option and it was wonderful. Great meal to share with someone special. The wine list is perfect for any dollar amount you are willing to spend. Great value priced wines along with the standard higher priced levels.

The food at the 1904 Steakhouse was amazing! Our server, Mary, made us feel right at home from the get-go, and was very friendly, wishing us a Happy Anniversary (me and my wife's 4th and her parent's 34th was a few days prior) as she introduced herself and took our initial drink orders.
After we ordered the Calamari as an appetizer (Delicious!) Mary was replaced by Mike (who had a great sense of humor when we joked about 'Mary' having had a drastic change in appearance) who also did an excellent job. Turns out that Mary had been selected from the wait-staff to showcase her skills behind the bar, mixing up drinks for some of the other patrons.
The food was amazing, the setting was intimate, yet relaxed and very comfortable, and the friendliness of all of the staff, from the Manager all the way down the line to the bussers, was exceedingly friendly. Mary even took the liberty of ordering the Crème brûlée and a slice of the chocolate/caramel cheesecake for our dessert.
In short, it really was a wonderful evening, and I would be thrilled to go back.

Always a great atmosphere at 1904 Steak House. Right off the casino floor at River City Casino, it is a wonderful place for a quiet, intimate quality dinner. Good Wine selection sets off the mood. Wonderful food at reasonable prices. Limited wine list (by the glass), but an extensive wine list by the bottle with a good variety. Food quality was top notch. Most entre's are served without a side and their sides you can buy are good size. Definitely a repeat location.

We were seated next to the kitchen entrance, so we heard every conversation between the staff that was happening behind the scene. Not exactly what I had pictured when imagining birthday dinner with a $50 steak. Our waitress took 45 minutes to take our order, the entire meal took almost 3 hours, which is a bit much for me on a Sunday night (especially when we arrived at 7pm). They were also apparently out of limes at the entire casino and brought me a gin and tonic with lemon. My food was delicious, my dining companion's steak was overdone.

For a special occasion, excellent food- need to celebrate for the occasion like other higher end restaurants do -give birthday/retiree person dessert- or acknowledge the event. Unfortunately, the waiter did not really take imitative to acknowledge . Disappointed only in this aspect. Food was excellent! Shrimp Cocktail a must!!! Great steak!

Everything about our dining experience was more than expected. It is pricey, but we got what we paid for.
Everyone who took part in making our visit "the best it could be" was certainly on their toes from our entrance through our exit.
Thank you for a great dining experience

The 5-star rating for service is for our waiter and the bus help. I can't remember our waiter's name, but he was our server two years ago, too. He is Eastern European, I believe. He is absolutely amazing. A great, personable, intuitive professional. We had a lovely relaxing evening and he made it extra special. However, if I could rate the older gentleman that seated us or the young woman at the front desk I would give them zero stars. This was a dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. I stated that on the Open Table reservation and asked for a special table. When we got there two gentlemen and the young women were at the front station. I told them my name and all three looked at the computer screen for several minutes. No one said, 'Welcome, just a moment, we are happy you are here.' Finally, the older gentleman headed off into the dining area without a 'follow me' or 'this way please'. He proceeds to seat us at a four top right at the front of the row - practically in the bar. Nothing romantic or special. I said we were hoping for a more secluded table, perhaps a booth. I said it was my wife's birthday. He didn't apologize or suggest another table - just scowled at us. 'No booths' he finally said. I said, well how about at least a table farther back. He again looked disgusted and finally allowed us to find a different table. He never suggested another table. As I said, they were the only downside to an otherwise wonderful evening.

Excellent food and service. Beware the baked potato, it's ENORMOUS. Our waitress bet me a free dessert that I couldn't finish, but I did! My girlfriend got most of the dessert, I had just a taste (it was delicious as well). Wine list was small but OK.

Waiter was very professional, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Steaks were prepared to our specifications and very tender and juicy. Asparagus was wonderful. The only small complaint was the shrimp cocktail. The three shrimp were quite large and rather tough. However, we would order them again as we have had them on previous visits and they were very good. An extra treat was the dessert which we were treated to in honor of our wedding anniversary.

Food was excellent and the ambience was nice. However, the service was lacking that night. Our server had a big party and we never saw him until after we ordered and again when we flagged him down to pay our bill. Fortunately the other staff pitched in and made sure we received some service. One item we ordered was forgotten but we reordered it. The quality of the food product helped offset the poor service.
