Even though the service is usually below average they knew how to cook a steak. This last visit we waited 15 minutes for soft drinks and had to ask for bread, it took about 40 minutes to get our food on a Wednesday at 1:00pm and I ordered my steak medium well and received it well done, they took it back and about the time my husband finished his food I got mine. The steak again was overcooked and a little bit crunchy and tough. The didn't charge me for my meal (only my soft drink), I would rather have paid for a good meal.

From Business: Our menu is filled with classic American dishes like steak, salmon, burgers, sandwiches and salads, as well as other traditional favorites like slow-roasted prime…
My girl ordered a 10oz steak and I ordered an 18oz. When we got them they were the same size and overcooked.
The location was great, right on the river. Service seemed to be great. Food was really good, someone there paid for me and my girlfriends dinner. Everything was awesome, however I only has 100 dollar bills and asked the guy to give me change for it and asked for 20s. He came back with all kinds of different bills but I didn't think much about it. Left a 35$ tip. Got home and for no reason counted my money and turns out the guys shorted me about 30 something dollars. I didn't notice cause I was still so amazed that someone paid for my meal and didn't care. I would say he miscounted but you don't miscount that much. Never going back again.
They are dishonest in labeling the portion sizes of some items they serve. I went 3 times in the last 6-8 weeks. Each time I ordered my favorite dish which is their grilled Salmon. The first time I ordered the 10 oz piece. It did not look 10 oz at all, and at the most would pass for 6 oz. I did not make any comments! It was cooked to my liking. The second time I intentionally ordered the 7 oz piece, and it came exactly the same size as the 10 oz I ordered the prior time!! I still did not complain. Ate it and added a generous tip for the waitress who was very nice and left. The third visit was 2 days ago and I decided to order the 10 oz again, however, I explained to the waitress what happened twice before and I asked her to communicate this with the kitchen. I still got the smaller portion. I called the waitress back and reminded her of my order. She fully agreed with me. I asked her to take it back and bring me what I ordered, but she couldn't as they don't have 10 oz pieces!!
I made a reservation for 3 for my six year anniversary. It was a 30-minute drive to the restaurant and when my family arrived all dressed up, we were turned down because my son was not 18. When I made the reservation, I was not asked if everyone was over 18, and making a reservation for 3 people would be a red flag for the 3rd one possibly not being 18. The hostess did not seem very remorseful, and with it being prom night, the wait anywhere else would have been long. I will not dine at Cavanaugh's again.
Cavanaughs has a beautiful view, furnishings and dim light atmosphere. Everything I have ever had is delicious. The steaks and chocolate desserts are my favorite. We have eaten there frequently. My son who is 18 recently tried to take his 17 year old girl friend to eat and they refused them service and said they could order something to go. They just left. He saved his money to show her a nice evening out (dressed up in the nicest clothes he has) and they refused to serve them. They can go to war at 18 but not eat in a fancy casino restaurant. We will not be going there any more. Too Stuffy.
