The ambiance was very relaxing. It provided for a comfortable and enjoyable evening. The waiters were very attentive and made very good recommendations. I had the Salmon with a mango salsa which was very good. I would definitely go back. The dessert was way more than the thought it would be and it was delicious!!!

I was going to take a photo but when it came i was so excited I forgot. Lots of lobster in the sandwich plus homemade kettle chips. Fantastic. Great service. Great lunch.

I sent my mom to enjoy while in meetings all day. She was kind enough to bring me back a HUGE crab cake. No fillers. Just crab. After a week eating crab cakes in San Fran the month before, my mind was blown. I can't wait to go there in person.

Hugo's Frog Bar & Chop House was recommended to me by a local. Upon arrival, I entered into the Bar area and sat at the bar. The bartender greated me almost immediately. I looked over the menu and the Chilean Sea Bass caught my eye. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass that came with a cucumber slaw as a garnish.... More

This place is always really good. Owned by Gibson's steakhouse. The menu is similar. The fried calamari are outstanding and the sliders are tasty. Highly recommend the bar area with live pianist.

I've always believed Casino food sucks. It might look good, but the taste seldom matches the presentation (actually NEVER in my experience). Hugo's Frog Bar at the Rivers Casino is a rare exception and is definitely worth the drive if you are in that area. Their steaks are phenomenal, as is their veal. The seafood is great too.

Service is always outstanding from the moment you walk into the door. The server was knowledgeable about the menu as well as accommodating to our requests. If you're getting dessert please be advised that they are rather large and something you might want to share.

Located inside Rivers Casino. The food was delicious. The bartender was helpful without being overbearing. The drinks and food were expensive. You must be 21 to get in.
