After walking through the beautiful casino I went to the Council Oak restraunt were I was thoroughly impressed with the staff and service. Our waitress was Jessica Who was awsome and the lounge was great. The band was perfect for the setting. I will recommend council oak to anyone.

Great steaks, professional service. Great experience overall. The sides are large enough to share. Carpaccio is excellent app

We have visited several times and always enjoy eating here. They do a good job with all the entrees. Be warned that the servings are large. My dining companion and I usually split a salad and a side as they are huge and we are staying over in the hotel so we can't pack the left overs to take home.

We haven't had room left to try a dessert but the ones that I see being served around us look very enticing.

The service has always been exceptional.

The only down side is that they keep this place cold! The season doesn't matter, it is always cold here so dress accordingly and enjoy your visit.

Thank you so much for your kind words about our establishment! It means so much to our team. Your feedback about the temperature is helpful too. Sometimes in our attempt to keep the casino air as smoke free as possible, the temperature can get a bit chilly. We look forward to seeing you soon.

this is a great place for a great steak. my wife and i eat here several times a year. my favorite and our go to steak is the big n.y strip. it is 20 oz of age prime beef that is about two inches thick. always prepared perfectly. i guess one very hungry person could eat the whole thing. for us, it is so big we share it and then have some to take home, the seafood is very good. but really the steak reigns supreme here. i have had all of them the cowboy ribeye, filet, small strip (12oz), they are all very good. the atmosphere is nice and dark, the staff is very professional and helpful with both menu and wine suggestions. all the side dishes are large enough to share. the prices are not cheap but in line with a top steakhouse and this certainly is one. deserts are also very good. make reservations because they are busy and especially so on the weekend. you will find people dressed to impress and then people in jeans.
