“New manager - huge improvement.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

A great restaurant. Nice variety of dishes, well prepared with excellent service. Clean, comfortable environment with excellent music including Chopin and Beethoven piano works. Non-smoking section which is a must have. Prices are fair and their early birds are exceptional. This has now become my premier restaurant in Tunica above Binions and Fairbanks.

“Surprised us with quality of service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We arrived early 5PM after a long drive at the end of our 2 week driving vacation. Even though there was no one else in the restaurant the hostess carefully viewed the reservation book before leading us into the dining room. Note: It was no busier by the time we finished than when we arrived so I'm not sure what that was about.

Then our experience vastly improved. A innovative salad of lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers was followed by braised boneless beef short ribs for me and french cut pork chops for my husband. My side was a delicious grits dish that was the best of the trip (if you ever see my other reviews you'll know I'm a deprived "because I'm from up north" grits girl) . Expensive but worth it. Beautiful atmosphere too. Too bad we didn't win enough in the casino to make the experience perfect. Ha. Ha.

“Outstanding Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The service was outstanding! Our group was celebrating four birthday's and two wedding anniversary's during our visit. Everything was excellent: service, food, hospitality, drinks, etc. This was our second year eating at Twain's Steakhouse during our trips to Tunica, and we plan on making reservations every year when we visit Sam's Town. Thank you for everything!

“Why ask for non smoking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

First off let me say, the food was good but long wait after ordering. The problem was they asked if we wanted smoking or non so we requested non, half way through our steak the table in front of us lit up a cigarette. The guy sitting people, came over and said to them "this isn't the smoking section but it's o..k. it's almost closing time and I'll get you an ashtray" I honestly felt like standing up and walking out. Doesn't matter how the food is --- won't go back!

“Must have been an off night”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Freezing rain outside. Only 4 other people in the restaurant about 7 pm. One waiter who covered the bar area and the restaurant. But, given no crowd, should have been pretty easy. Unfortunately, his attitude led me to believe he didn't want to be there.
In a nutshell: Had to ask for water to be refilled and for another wine. Not something I'd expect at an upscale place. Oh yes, the restaurant was very nice.
I like meat cooked, at the risk of being over cooked, and told the waiter that I did not want the steak "bloody". Even discussed difference between med and med well. Ordered appetizer of scallops (3) and clarified that they would be grilled and cooked through and warm. Sure, says the waiter.
You know where this is going. Promises, promises. Steak bloody. Scallops nearly cold in middle. Waiter said he'd take the steak back. I figured I'm already annoyed. I'll just pick around on the done stuff. Actually what I had was good. Funny the cook even came out to check later. Now, mind you, I was not making a scene.
The potato side was chunks of potato, like potato salad, stuffed back into the 1/2 potato shell with some sauce, maybe cheese, on top. I did like the spinach side, the bread and the choc covered strawberry (complementary).
All that for more than $200.
Not going back!
