Prime rib was a bit overdone than what I requested but it was ok. Excellent house green salad. Loved the Blue Cheese dressing!! The sides are extra... More

Me and the Dear wife meet another employee and his wife here for dinner. Service was great and the food was great. It is a little on the higher end price wise, but worth it. Free parking at Casino

Stopped in on a quiet Tuesday night and sat at the bar. Service was spot on. Piano player belted out tunes to all 3 of us seated there. Got the porkchop - meh. I am sure for Evansville it is 5* but as compared to larger cities it has a way to go.

Hostess greeted us with a smile and we were seated immediately at a window overlooking the Ohio river. We had made our reservation online. Josh, our waiter, was courteous, pleasant and considerate of our romantic privacy needs. The food was presented artfully and tasted wonderful. After dinner we enjoyed the piano and singing entertainment of Matt Clark in the bar.... More
