Business dinner for a group of 8. We were seated and then moved again to be closer to the view. Items are al a carte and sides are big and could be shared. Great bar selection and fabulous desserts!

The atmosphere is beautiful with the Ohio River in the background. The staff are always cheerfully and efficient. The food and drinks are amazing! On Wednesdays, the Honey Vines play beautiful music at the baby grand piano.

Service was excellent. Food was so good. Food looked great and fancy. Pricey though. Expect $60 to 75 dollars a person. Room was beautiful and very clean.

We were nearly the only table there between lunch and dinner time. Waited over an hour for food. Sides are not included with steak. VERY overpriced for quality of food. Cool view of Ohio River and nice gas fireplace on the wall.

The service was great and the staff was very thoughtful. The food was delicious, if a little expensive. We had a lovely view of the river. I wish there were more chicken options.

You see all types of dress in there, since it's connected to the casino. The menu and prices are upscale, so business casual is about as casual as I would be willing to go.
