Cavanaugh's Ratings and Reviews
We were disappointed with our meal. My husband returned his steak. He ordered prime rib cooked medium. The steak was fully uncooked and full of fat and gristle. I ordered lobster bisque and a salad. My salad was good and soup was not warm. The server was very kind and we had great service. He offered my Husband another steak we declined. When he gave us the bill he actually took the steak off . We did not even ask and just wanted to pay our bill and leave. He still brought out a piece of cake as I requested for a surprise for my husbands birthday. Overall we were not pleased with our meal and how we were seated by a big group and another couple. The restaurant was not crowded , and it would have been nice to have more privacy. Thank you, Mattingly's
I came with my fiance to this restaurant for our 10 months anniversary. As soon as we were greeted we noticed the fine modern decor that encapsulated our eyes. The weary head nod of the pianist electrified the bar as we were led to our table. As our server brought us drinks we searched the menu effortlessly looking for our options. Our server took our orders and the food came out with efficient speed. The entire restaurant seemed to work in tip top fashion as a nod to the well prepared staff. My fiance got a salad that was quite excellent and very proportionally priced. I ordered a chicken dish that was alright. The proportion was relatively small for what I paid for it. Overall it was a lovely dining experience and I would mostly recommend it as a nice lunch venue with a beautiful view, dining room, and classy operation as a whole.
After reading previous reviews, I almost cancelled our reservation...Would have been a Huge mistake! Our reservation was for 5:30 and yet Dinner was excellent, everything perfectly prepared, our waiter Sergey was helpful and prompt. We will Definitely be coming back!
My husband and I frequent Cavanaugh's and really enjoy this restaurant. This time we shared a filet and king crab and both were outstanding. In addition, the Manager took our wine order since our server was busy which was a nice touch meaning we didn't have to wait for anything. A wonderful evening!
We ordered a 16oz prime rib and asked our waiter if we could split this steak. Mike (our waiter) not only did that but he told us to split the potato as well . We really had a good steak and still could not finish it. Cudos to the staff for making our special day even better.
While the service was EXCEPTIONAL and the food was solid, the manager made a fool of himself by interrupting a speech, and making our large table feel unwelcome. I was appreciative of the server who apologized for him over and over, but the manager left a bad taste in the mouth of several guests. He also failed to check in on the table: didn't ask us how our food/ experience was or why we were having a large get-together. I don't think he wanted us there, and he is going to get his wish the next time we are in town.
Again, the server saved the day - but I don't know if I would ever recommend this place to others who were visiting the Casino.
We were celebrating my husbands birthday at Cavanaughs. It was our first visit and the food was delicious, the waitress was outstanding and the chef greeted us at our table and wanted to know how everything was. He also gave us his card- he was very friendly and the food is wonderful! We definitely will be back!
Very attentive staff. Nice table next to the window. Food was ok but not great. The restaurant became very noisy with the piano player and the crowd in the bar as there is no separation from the restaurant. What started out as a quiet table next to the window became noisy as the rather exuberant bar crowd got louder.
Cavanaugh's was an excellent place to eat and relax. My fiance and I drove 2 hours to eat there for our Valentine's dinner and we were not disappointed. I had the porterhouse steak and she had pasta and both dishes were perfection. It is agreeable that the food we had was well worth the price and we will be back as soon as possible!
This restaurant was absolutely incredible. The bone-in ribeye and filet were incredible. Lobster mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and Parmesan fries were all outstanding. Best cheesecake I've ever had in my life. The only negative is that there is still a slight aroma of smoke from the casino entrance area. Very very slight, but still there. Outstanding service. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
Wow! Where do I start,
Firstly I LOVE-ED this place, it's the ONLY REAL fine dining establishment in Evansville PERIOD, so it's always a go to place to dine when I'm in town from Chicago.
The menu WAS great especially after the addition of the Dry aged bone-in ribeye! The seafood selection was also up to par. With a Wine selection to match!
Now after this most recent visit I was honestly devastated when I found out the menu was changed! And NOT for the better, the menu now resembles that of an over glorified TGI Fridays at 3x's the price.
Unfortunately until the menu changes I will not return,
For management please feel free to contact me on this new yelp account as I may be able to help with some one on one constructive criticism.
We have dined here several times and the cuisine is always phenomenal. However, our most recent visit was somewhat disappointing. The food was excellent, but it took an hour for the entree's to arrive. We had finished out salads and appetizers 40 minutes before the steaks and crab legs made it to the table. As we were finishing our meal, the restaraunt staff began closing duties. One of the staff was using a vaccuum and came right up to our table with it!! Being that this steakhouse is top tier-this is totally unacceptable. Had our meal been served to us in a reasonable time frame. We wouldnt have been in their way for clean up. We felt as though they wanted us to hurry up and get out!!!
I have no complaints on the service. I do have one opinion on a salad option, and overall price. The 16 oz NY strip and baked potato were good. The Cesar salad was on the bland side for my taste. Our bill was $150 without any alcohol, appetizer or dessert. For what we had, it should be closer to the $80-100 range in my opinion. Overall, a good experience. I'll go back...just not every week :)
We went for an early Valentine's Day. My partner chose crab and was well pleased with it. I chose chicken and was well pleased with it as well as the rice. Our friends ordered the filet and it was cooked as ordered. The waitress was attentive. We were disappointed in the salad choices, though. Overall, a good experience!
