1904 Steak House at River City Casino & Hotel Ratings and Reviews
The 5-star rating for service is for our ...
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.

The food was excellent but the steak was overly salted. Excellent cut of meat and done perfectly! Creamed spinach was delicious! The waiter was awesome! Very enjoyable meal! Next time I would ask them just to leave off the salt, or at least cut way way back on it. I would go back again if in the area. The dessert was delectable too!
Concert and Dinner
Reservations for dinner prior to the Dwight Yoakam concert. Steaks were cooked to order, tender and delicious. Service was timely and server informative and efficient. Recommend for a relaxing upscale dinner prior to an event to include just a short walk to the venue.
Not a good experience.
Our waitress, Bridgett, seemed to have to many customers. Our wait time was way longer than normal. Thank goodness other waiters noticed us and refilled our drinks. Not just once but twice. I ordered a medium steak that came well done and even burnt around the edges. They did redo another steak and it was cooked better. They claimed 45 day aged steaks but mine seemed a little tough for 45 days. Then we had to call Bridgett to get the check. It was not what we were expecting for this steak house.
Great meal after a dynamite concert!
My wife and I saw the Alan Parsons Project on Saturday night. We had to really rush to the Steak House because the concert ran late. We got to the restaurant on time and despite being close to closing got excellent service from all the staff. We were not rushed. What made the meal special was the entire band, including Alan Parsons himself, came in for dinner a little later. Each member of the band stopped to say hello. The food was amazing. The steak was superb and the crab succulent. One small complaint - we only got one piece of crab and although it was large it was not nearly enough for us. Overall a tremendous evening, including a very nice hotel room. We will be back again very soon.
I had an 8 oz fillet with a side of mushrooms and a Garlic butter sauce which was excellent.
My wife had the brick chicken and it was a bit gristly, and had a small bone in it.\
The waiter brought a chocolate ball with bananas inside and he poured a warm caramel like topping on it and it opened up for us to eat which was pretty cool.
We had a side of lobster mac that was pretty good.
I started off with a lobster bisque that I thought was lacking a bit, the broth was pretty good but only had a sliver of lobster meat.
The atmosphere was very quiet which we really liked the service was excellent, the bill was a bit pricey, but overall a very good experience.
The only thing missing from this wonderful experience was they didn't have the really hot plates (like Ruth's Chris). The food was all delicious but if it was kept hot, it might have been even better! Our waitress was Mary and she was wonderful!!!
Good food, lacking service
Service was very slow. We were seated by the hostess, but not given menus. There was no recognition from a waiter for a long time, and when he did arrive still did not bring menus but just took drink order. We finally received 1 menu and several minutes later the 2nd. During this time we noticed other tables being seated and given a menu at that time.
I ordered the lobster bisque, which had a brown offputting color, but the large chunks of lobster made up for it. The flat iron steak and fries was very good, but the topper was the baked sweet potato. The potato was so tender, you could easily slice it with a fork and it was served with a brown sugar butter. Delicious!
You're paying for ambiance and convenience
We shared several small plates so we could try different things. The goat cheese dip is not worth it and neither are the scallops. The lobster Mac and cheese was the best thing we got. Don't waste money on the oysters, they are the smallest thing I've ever seen in my life! The prices don't reflect the quality or the portions.
As per usual our visit was excellent: Service was first rate with the Lamb and Steak selections being prepared to perfection. The bar service was exemplary with the Scotch suggestion from the Barman spot on. Hooray for the Oysters best in town! Dessert was heavenly loved the flour less Chocolate Cake!
