I was here for a birthday dinner. The service was exceptional from seating to an excellently prepared table-side caesar salad. Staff were both courteous and friendly.The rib-eye steak was one of the best I have had - good quality, flavorful and a very large 24 ounce serving. The added seared butter, Ruth's Chris style, is a nice touch. The Pot... More

Reserved a table for two at 8PM on a Friday night. We were promptly seated and our waitress (Erin) arrived in about 5 minutes and took our drink order. She dissapeared and 30 minutes later with no drinks or service, she showed up and said the bar was backed up but she was ready to take our food order. We... More

This restaurant sits in the rear of a small casino. It's got a warm and cozy feeling . We chose a Thursday night for dinner to take advantage of the half price lobster. It was really a Maine lobster, not one of the small Caribbean varieties. Our other choice was the 12 oz ribeye special. Both entrees were excellently prepared... More

Excellent! You must order the Ceasar Salad table side. The lobster tail is half price on Thursday nights check it out! The steaks are great as well.

My husband and I ate here on a Wednesday evening, right after they opened for the night, and we ended up being the only patrons in the main dining area the whole time... it was kinda nice. My husband had the rib eye steak with asparagus (both very good) and I had the new york strip steak with a side... More

I was recently at a party hosted by this restaurant. Food was lackluster, very out of the box and I mean..out of the box! They could step up their game, made it special, but didn't deliver on any level service nor food. I know casinos make their $ on gambling, they certainly did with me. I have NO luck. But,... More

This used to be one of our favorite places. Then a few years ago we had some bad steak dinners so quit going. Recently, we had people telling us it had gotten better. So we gave it a try. This last time we had a group of 6. The Caesar Salad made at the table is really great. However, three... More

Was invited by some friends and at first I was thinking oh a casino restaurant. This is going to be interesting. But I was completely surprised by the service! I think the waiter's name was Louie. He was very attentive throughout. We ordered Caesar salad and he made it in front of us, all fresh ingredients! Explained the history of... More

I was treated to CBS&LH for my birthday. We had a group of 10 and the service and food were outstanding. Was certainly the nicest birthday meal I've ever had. First, champagne in the most beautiful handcrafted flutes I've ever seen. Followed by classic table side Caesar Salad which was superb. We then had Steak Diane, again prepared table side,... More

This is where the locals go. They don't advertise, just word of mouth. The food and service are just what you want when you go out to a nice evening meal. Order Caesar salad and they will make it at the table, they usually have organic meats, great specials. It has an old school feel with the big booths and... More
