Final Cut Steakhouse - Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course Ratings and Reviews
Great Comp dinner
My wife and I had comp dollars to use. After it was all done I would have paid to eat there. The food was outstanding, we had a great server, the food came quickly and prepared as requested. I will go back in the near future with out question.

Very good food & excellent service, but $300+ for 2 people for dinner is ridiculous. This is a local casino, not The Breakers! My husband & I each had a drink before dinner, shared an appetizer, both ordered a steak with one shared side and had 1 bottle of wine ($78) With tip, the bill was $320 -- no dessert, no after dinner drinks. It's no wonder the restaurant was empty. If I want to spend that kind of money, it will be reserved for a special occasion or a super cool restaurant (in Vegas, NYC, etc.)

Best steak dinner my wife and I have ever had. Food was all prepared fantastically and portions were fair. Service got slower as the meal went on (and more people were seated), but Julie was so polite and very unobtrusive during the meal. Dessert was amazing as well, with exceptional scotch offerings. Bravo!

If you are looking for a place with high end creative food with a romantic atmosphere this is the place for you. Fantastic!
My husband and I celebrate our anniversary here almost every year. This year the manager covered our first round of drinks, which we really appreciated! We've been recommending The Final Cut for years :) excellent everything!

Was very disappointed in my steak. Had another steak three days later at a chain steakhouse that was much better at less than half the cost. (Bone in ribeye) Husband was mistakenly given an upgraded steak to the same cut as mine. His was twice as thick as mine and juicier, although it was supposed to be same doneness and same size on the plate. (How were they possibly the same oz steaks?) Sides were nothing special. I expected more value for the cost of our meal.

Nice restaurant with generous service. Entrees could be a little less expensive.

Excellent meal and wait staff!
We thoroughly enjoyed our get together with two other couples to catch up, coming from PA, DC and MD. The wait staff was excellent, and we enjoyed everything from our appetizers, to our prime steaks, Wagyu ribeye, and venison entrées, and desserts. Everything was excellent. Thank you for a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!
great atmosphere terrible food
Our waitress judy was awesome and the atmosphere was great but the food was over priced and over cooked. We ordered one of each of the appetizers and the meat and cheese board was the best thing on there. The short ribs were tough, the bacon was so greasy when you bit into it it ran down your chin and the worst were the over cooked chewy lobster ravioli. They were worse then frozen stuff from giant. I had a better meal at Mountain view and even the buffet for a fraction of the price. I even left a comment card but they seemed uninterested.
Disappointed with fish dish; low value for price
I was just in Chicago and had sea bass; they served a beautiful, large piece of white fish. Here, I'm not sure the difference - on the menu it was also called sea bass, however, the piece of fish was 1.5" by 4" - so not worth the $36 price; salads and sides were additional. I'm not opposed to high-end, but, for the price, I expect more.
Another great meal and service at final ...
Another great meal and service at final cut thanks
Not worth it
A very disappointing meal for what was a top rated restaurant. The steak was nothing special for $75 - tough and lots of fat. And the fish was eating a mouthful of salt. Our server was great and even apologized for the wait to get our entrees. Drinks were watered down. The restaurant seemed to have no dress attire requirements for dinner. Put your money towards a truly enjoyable dining experience such as Devon or Chars Mansion.
I was there both Saturday and Sunday for dinner. I had Judi and Kyle (respectively) as my servers. Both are extremely knowledgeable of the menu and the food and always serve me well and treat me and my guest graciously.
One of our best dining experiences ever. My wife and I have dined in New York and Philadelphia, and Final Cut is right up there with some of the top restaurants around. the Chilean Sea Bass melted in your mouth, like butter. The American Wagyu tomahawk steak was cooked perfectly, and we had inquired about the crab mac 'n cheese, which is no longer on the menu, and the Chef had made it special for us. Thank you to our server, Kyle, for an enjoyable evening of service and great recomendation on wine. Can't wait to come back.
Pricy but worth it
Dinner at Final Cut is always special. We hadn't visited for a while and several things have changed since our last visit. The first thing we noticed, with disappointment, was that they no longer serve the wonderful bread assortment that had been one of our favorite parts of a Final Cut dinner. Now they just serve a small loaf of pretzel bread, which was OK but a bummer because we were looking forward to those wonderful parmesan crisps..... On a positive note, the appetizer assortment now includes an awesome meat and cheese plate. My husband and I shared one, and the assortment included two meats, two cheeses, along with olives, nuts, pickling spices, mustard, almonds, olives and comb honey. A great assortment and very generous portion for two at $16. The entrees are as fabulous as in the past. My husband loved his sea bass and my 10 ounce filet was so tender, I could cut it with my fork. The steak prices are definitely higher than I remember. I think my filet was $45 (with no sides). The wine assortment was extensive and impressive, also with higher prices than I remember. We chose a modest Layer Cake merlot at $40. All in all, a fabulous pricy dinner that was well worth it. If it had included that great bread basket, it would have been perfect.
Final Cut fan
This was our second visit to Final Cut. Both were exceptional experiences. The food, service, atmosphere and all aspects of our dining were outstanding. An extremely wise choice for that special occasion .
Worth the Price
Beautiful decor, excellent steaks, and great service. The braised short rib appetizer was delicious. One of our steaks came out overdone, but the server noticed and sent for a new steak immediately. The bacon cream corn is the best I have ever had! The prices are expensive but worth it for a special occasion.
Excellent choice for Valentine's Day
We decided to go to the Hollywood casino to see a local band we love, so we made a reservation for dinner at the Final Cut. I am so glad that we did. Food and Service were excellent. Would absolutely return.
We ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and the fish came out cold. After sending it back to be recooked, we were given the same piece that we sent back (15 minutes later) and it was luke warm at best. We were very disappointed considering the price and there was barely an apology offered. As restaurant owners ourselves, we had hoped for a better experience.
Great service and the best steak ever!

Food was fantastic as always. My steak was perfectly cooked and my wife's scallops were amazing. The service was attentive but not overbearing (thank you Emily ). I would recommend.

Very nice people running the restaurant. We had a great server and were greeted warmly by Mrs. Kirst who best represents the restaurant which was first rate
Overall very nice although we were sad to see the great breadbasket has been replaced by a sad pretzel loaf. I think my dessert( pumpkin spice cake) had been in the freezer- had a slight freezer taste to it. The side dishes seem to have shrunk somewhat. But overall we enjoyed our meal very much and will return. Just be careful about pricing too many people out though. And I did not like the video wine board. For the price we paid would interaction with a human kill anyone??? And the waiter suggested my wine as I couldn't find it on that thing
I took my father to a special dinner at Hollywood Casino. This was his second time coming to Final Cut, once before at Hollywood in Charlestown. We started with the bacon appetizer, Amazing!!!! We shared the 70 or 75 oz. steak and it was arguably the best steak hands down we have ever eaten. We had the creamed corn with bacon, asparagus, and mashed potatoes for our sides. This meal was fit for a king and it truly deserves to be considered on the best steakhouses in this area. Go try it out and I guarantee you will walk away just as I did, amazed.
Quality of food

We had such a great time eating at the Final Cut Steakhouse. The staff was outstanding in every thing they did from talking to us to keeping our drinks full. The food was second to none, prepared just how we wanted it and there was so much of it. Chef Ken even came out to our table to say hello. Going there was the best part of our weekend and we look forward to going back again. In my opion I would have given them more than 5 stars if it was possible to do.
Always an excellent meal
One of my favorite restaurants, the Final Cut has an outstanding wine list and a bargain menu on Wednesday ,Thursday and Sunday. It's the perfect place for a special occasion.

Outstanding food and service! Although somewhat expensive, we definitely got what we paid for.
Loved the food and the atmosphere. This is a fantastic place to go for a special occasion! Not sure I would recommend to my elderly parents since the food is highly seasoned. However, the service was excellent, and I'm sure they would modify things if you asked. It is very expensive (about $50 and up a plate) so it's definitely a special occasion place. I didn't notice smoke from the casino in the restaurant. Much busier and a bit louder than I anticipated.
Expensive.... But the perfect place for a special occasion. The food is magnificent and the servers are polite and helpful but not in your face while you are eating. We love dining at Final Cut.
Great food/ service
My husband and I traveled 2 hours just to eat here for our anniversary. It was well worth the trip. We look forward to visiting again (when I can drink, 6 months pregnant..) :) Service was wonderful too!
Final Cut Steakhouse Fabulous!
My Husband and I had dinner for the first time at The Final Cut Steakhouse inside the Hollywood Casino. I knew that it was pricey and everything a la carte but, was pleasantly surprised! The inside of the restaurant was nicely decorated. Our server was attentive and very professional. The taste of the food was FABULOUS! I had a pumpkin bisque, sea bass, baked sweet potato that was HUGE and brussel sprouts. My husband had the French onion soup, venison, baked potato and creamed corn. The pretzel bread was so delicious also! We were so full and could not do dessert. Took half of our sides home with us. We definitely will return to this restaurant in the future for a special occasion! If I had to say something on the negative side, I wish the server would have told us that when ordering the sides that they were enough to share. Especially since we paid individually for each one that we ordered! Also, was disappointed when I got home to see that one of my sides was forgotten with my doggie bag. I think that for the price you have to pay, more care should be taken when packaging up left overs. All in all, wonderful experience!!!!
Not just great steaks
Going to a steak house you should order steak right? You don't have to here. I had the best Lobster tail ever. It was huge like two pounds. I almost could not finish it. Cant wait to go back. The experance with service and quality of food is well work the cost.

Bacon appetizer was amazing. Definitely not the best steak house but not the worse either. Steak was cooked to temperature ordered. The problem with the steak was that it had little flavor, even with the various sauces that are provided.
