We have ate here a few times for dinner. The food was good. We have had fish and chips and also hamburgs. We like that you can watch the games on the tv at the bar. The prices are a little high but not bad. We will still eat ther again.

The restaurant is on a 'river' inside the casino that creates a refreshing atmosphere and sound while enjoying your meal. Try the shaved prime rib frybread. It was delicious! The Heron also has great prices for bottles of wine with a small but adequate list to pick from. The dessert menu could use more variety. Current choices are all some... More

Excellent sandwich/burger selection on the menu. Had the prime rib parmesan sandwich and it melted in my mouth. Good, friendly service.. Noisy casino is off to the side.

My wife and I ate here two nights in a row since I won big. The Rib Eye is fantastic and the loaded back potato was also very good. My wife had the Perch both nights and said it was one of the best perch she has had in years.

Seriously try all of the appetizers especially the best damn cheese sauce. It was amazing! The mini prime rib breads were an awesome treat as well. Prices were reasonable and service was great. You won't be disappointed.

Ordered onion rings and the first onion ring I picked up had two black hairs deep fried right into it. Just totally disgusting and guarantee by the way it pulled out from the inside of the onion ring it came from the kitchen staff. I left the other hair embedded in the onion ring to prove it wasn't anyone's hair... More

My husband and I were both going to order the braised shortribs. Unfortunately, the restaurant only had one order left. I ordered and it was delicious! The meat was extremely flavorful and melted in my mouth. No knife required! The fingerling potatoes and onion straw were a nice accompaniment. My husband's steak was also very good. It was odd that... More

The setting is nice and we didn't smell smoke while we were dining, although it was a fairly early dinner so the casino wasn't too crowded yet. Our server was ok. The wine was not as cold as I'm used to. All in all it was a decent meal. However, the thing that stood out was a problem with my... More

A great atmosphere sitting next to a gurgling stream and all the fauna and flora. Great selection of food on the menu, albeit a little pricey, and great service.
