Visit to the Hollywood. Went to the Fairbanks Restaurant this past weekend. Very nice place. A bit pricey but well worth the money spent. Very clean and service was top notch.

Celebrated our anniversary and had a good meal. Service was good, food good, but nothing memorable or outstanding. I was hoping for these prices it would be better than just good. We both had steaks which were cooked properly, but nothing that made us anxious...More

We decided to eat here before seeing a show at Paramount. The restaurant was mostly empty on a Saturday night at 6pm. We did have reservations though, just to be safe. I started with a Caesar salad - it was a little overdressed, but still...More

Since this is a steakhouse, my wife and I ordered steak. They were very good and properly prepared. Biggest drawback, if you don't have a reservation they tend to cast you aside and give you non-prime tables. This is an expensive restaurant, as everything is...More

Shared a wonderful evening with my in-laws for dinner here. We always love the food and have had dinner there 3 times.

Have been here several times and never been disappointed. Aurora does not have many fine dining options but this is surely one to experience - even if you aren't interested in gambling! The food is excellent & the service more than matches it. Always enjoy...More

Description
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."
