I was very happy and surprised how good the food was overall.
Definitely this establishment needs help when it comes to service and ambience.
The waitress and kitchen staff was very polite and friendly but not properly trained for a
fine dining restaurant.
Very good food for a reasonable price.
Needs better management

We had calamari and it was delicious. I had filet that was cooked perfectly and my husband had pan seared scallops which he enjoyed. Service was friendly and expert. We enjoyed our dinner.

I’ve been attending slacks now since you’re playing with casino is open and it’s a beautiful thing when you see the same people stay at their jobs they don’t have a rotating table of waitresses bartenders the managers it gives a little bit of stability in such a crazy world the food quality is good the portions of small but it’s probably best for my waist line LOL but it’s a beautiful atmosphere friendly people great food be more than happy to come back anytime

I get that it’s a casino restaurant, but with Oyster House in the name, you’d expect to find more than two varieties of oysters and you’d expect the waiter to at least tell you what kinds are on the platter. The food was decent. The waiter seemed brand new and it was not evident that he’d been trained. Refilling water, pouring wine, etc are pretty important skills.

We sat at the bar and Jane served us. She was great!
The extra special part was Dejuan tending the seafood bar.
He gets 10 stars for personality/and just over NICE GUY!!

Don't bother reserving the bar area- they can't honor that reservation. Management was extremely rude and denied that it was available to reserve and made us wait then argued with us even after seeing the reservation.

This review would have been 5 stars if not for the sub par clam appetizer . Eight small clams steamed in beer (salty) and fair at best $15. We told the waiter and he apologized but that was as far as it went. Dinners were exceptional.

Went in for lunch and a couple of cocktails and I was very disappointed that burgers where removed from your menu. The meal I order was good but not what I wanted to eat.

Ordered a prime bone-in ribeye that was way under cooked. A couple of problems with the steak; firstly it couldn't have been prime and secondly it took forever to get it and it wasn't cooked properly. We ordered our steak medium and it was served to us rare. Not medium rare but rare. We order the steak medium medium. It was like the grill cook just flashed it on both sides and served it. It was almost bleu. The server even asked us after she set it down on the table if it was ok as I poked the center with my knife. The server's voice had trepidation in it when asking the question like she new it wasn't cooked properly. While on the subject of our waitress, she took for ever serving us, checking on us and bringing the check. Everything she did was delayed, couldn't bring us our drinks, steak or check. One time she left for so long we started looking for her anxiously, desperate to find her for our check so we could get out of there and play. She must have been smoking or something. The only thing good that happened was she was advised by the matre'd that she was taking to long waiting on her patrons.

Apparently it was the first day of the new menu. MUCH smaller and more bland than the old one. Boring and uninspiring. Caesar was soggy. All 3 courses came out together within 8 minutes apart. Made a rare night out dinner seem like a rushed fast food meal. Service was great as always. Dairy allergy was noted to bartender but kitchen dropped the ball and put butter on the steak so it had to go back and he recooked.

Service is amazing and food was great. The host and server were the best part of that evening! Thanks for the great service and the food pairing of wine & food on the prix fixe menu was perfectly done.
