We have dined at Cavanaughs a few time and although a little on the pricey side the food has always been fabulous. We've had seafood, steak, salad, sides & desserts. Always great!

I'd fire the cook and manager and start over. Had a filet they burnt, that had this nasty wine sauce and thought I'd throw up when eating the ad gratin potatoes! Man were they terrible. Not for me will never go back.

After being in the smoke filled and dingy casino we didn't get too excited about this restaurant. However, by the conclusion of our meal we were extremely happy with the service and quality of the food. Top notch restaurant!

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.
