This was our first visit to the Hollywood Casino, and we only went there for pre-theater dining. The service was excellent and the food we ordered was very good. It is an a la carte steakhouse, so you have to be mindful of what you...More

The setting and ambiance are 1930's classic Hollywood, but the culinary experience is fine contemporary dining. With USDA prime beef and delicious seafood creations, plus rich pastas, fresh salads, and an award-winning selection of wine, it's no wonder Fairbanks was named Best Casino Fine Dining Restaurant by the readers of "Midwest Gaming & Travel."
