First of all, let me report that I am "Comped" for my meals, as I save my "points" for dining. Having said that, The Reserve is a fine dining experience. Since they cater to comped gaming customers, the pricing is a little high, but reasonable for quality steak house. Service is very good, and servers seem to go out of... More

We had dinner at "The Reserve" and it was delicious. My wife had Rack of Lamb that was cooked to perfection - a little crispy outside but medium and juicy on the inside. I had Lobster Bisque which was creamy and delicious and Swordfish that was outstanding. Our waitress, Maggie, was very pleasant and helpful in making our dining experience... More

My husband and I had dinner at The Reserve and as in the past it was awesome. Maggie was our waitress and she went above and beyond to make our dinner something special. Her knowledge of the menu is very much appreciated when you don't know what you feel like eating. I had the Amish Chicken, which was so tender... More

My friend and I had dinner here and it was wonderful. I ordered the 14oz Prime Rib as rare as possible. It was perfect and I have enough left for 2 lunches. The Parmesan steak fries were great. We shared a salad and a dessert. Overall very nice.

Great food, especially the steaks, the ambience is awesome and very relaxing. Our server, Maggie, was a joy. She made you feel like you were at her kitchen table and she was serving your there. The whole dinner experience was A+ and then some. Will definitely go back.

Great place for date night! Cozy atmosphere, and great service. Our server, Crystal, was very attentive! We will definitely visit again, and gambling after dinner is an added bonus!

First of all the place was busy but not terribly busy and the food was sub par at best kinda pricey but the service was the real disappointing fact of all asked for a manager but they never showed up so the bottom line we won't be back !!!!!

Thanks for the time to let us know about your experience with us. Unfortunately it was not a pleasurable one. We never enjoy hearing a negative review. We will look into why the manager never came to your table to make sure that service does not happen again. Thank you for your feedback and we hope some day you will... More

Our steak was full of flavor and cooked exactly the way we ordered, and the service was top notch! 5 stars all the way!!!!! The reserve is our new favorite when... More

We had a comp slip which we saw them deliver to the kitchen. I don't know if that had anything to do with what we received, but the meal was horrific. We mentioned to the waitress that it was a good thing we were not paying for it, and she said, "Well, if you think about it, you certainly did... More

Great service; superior meal. Well-matched wine with our food. We had a large party with numerous issues from veggie only meals at a steak house to picky eaters. The Reserve met and exceeded our expectations.
