1904 Steak House at River City Casino & Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Took my wife for an early Valentines dinner. It is a little pricey, but well worth it. She had the Valentines dinner special. It was started off with huge shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque, followed by the entree of filet and lobster tail then dessert. Not quite sure what you cal it, but was 3 different small desserts. She said it was the best chocolate she has ever had.
I had lobster bisque followed by a grouper entree and a side of creamed spinach. Grouper was great. The creamed spinach is made fresh and is fabulous. I would definitely recommend 1904 to anyone that wants a fabulous meal. As I said, a little pricey, but well worth it.
1904 was way overpriced and extremely mediocre. The menu had a dismal selection. I lover flavorful food, but my ribeye has a charred like bark on the outside that overpowered what I considered a tough steak for $40. That price didn't include salad or potato. I've had better steaks at Applebee's. We had one drink a piece, and no appetizer. The bill for two was $148 before tip. No problem had the food been good. If you are mad at your money, and have a yearning for average food, this is your place.
When we were seated we told our server, Troy, of our upcoming show plans at 7 p.m. Great experience until near the end. we asked our server for a leftover box and the change from the bill as we were attending the 7 p.m. show of Rodney Carrington. It was nearing 7 p.m. to get change and the box! I decided to head to restroom and who did I encounter on way to restroom? Our server was showing another party to their table! Why couldn't he get our change and leftover box in a more timely fashion?
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.
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.
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.
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.
