Took my Mom here after I flew into town. She had the twin lobster tails and I had the filet and we shared both. They were both as good as we have had anywhere. The waitress was awesome, we just had a great time and would go back if in town again. It was a special meal for us both.

We went for our anniversary dinner. Big disappointment!. The waiter was unfriendly, never checked on us and just plain bad. I had chicken parmesan, which was overpriced and not good. We ordered creme brulé for desert ($9), it was paper thin and not warm as it should have been. No atmosphere, sky high prices, poor quality and horrific service. Go... More

We have eaten at Boyd's many times and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I have food allergies and they have always accommodate me and were more than happy to do so. They have a limited menu but I have tried many od the entrees and have never been disappointed. This place have a nice atmosphere,... More

Enjoyable break away from noise of casino. Food menu has changed and not for the better. Have tried evening specials and had to send back to kitchen. Wait staff can be great but also, can be bad! Bartender is good! We always find something here and never leave hungry, just may take time to get it right!

The food was awesome!!! I ordered the Mahi Mahi and it was very good. My wife had the Filet and it also was Delicious. We both ordered desert and all I have to say it was good. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the food that was served.

I had a glass of iced tea, french onion soup and the ribeye steak. It didn't come with a salad and my bill was over $50. The steak was rather tough but not enough for me to send back. It was a very large piece of meat though. The french onion soup was just OK, needed more of a beef... More

Great food and service and awesome bartender Twix! Had the rib eye topped with lobster and shrimp and it was delicious. To get great steak at Peoria you gotta go to a casino steakhouse.

We ate at Boyds last night for our 20th anniversary. The hostess was extremely rude, before and after dinner. I ordered sea bass - flavor was good, but the texture was rubbery. Husband ordered prime rib - it wasn't good at all! It seriously was as thin as a thin ribeye. He only ate half of it! His side salad,... More

First of all the menu is disappointing as it has been down sized and the prices up sized. Filet was good and so was the ribeye, but the twin lobster tails were small and undercooked. The sides were enogh to share. Service very good.
