Enjoyed lunch here but didnt find the food exceptional. Resturant could use some updating. Had the French onion soup which was good . My wife had the Salad Bar which she enjoyed and commented that it had a good selection.

We have eaten at Chances R a number of times but it had been awhile since we had been there. My wife and I both ordered the chicken fried steak--a dish they have had a great reputation for. We were both very disappointed. Th meat was cool and fairly tough and the mashed potatoes were INSTANT. Instant mashed potatoes at... More

We ate there today for lunch and had the supurb salad bar, worth every penny of the $8.50 charge. It's all-u-can-eat so you won't leave hungry. All the waitresses are wonderful as well.

My colleague and I were in town on business and this place was highly recommended. The ambiance of the restaurant was very peculiar. We walked in to a quaint bar, past a more formal dining room setting into a well worn area of the restaurant which resembled a diner from the 70s - tacky décor, screaming kids and all. Although...

This is the real deal. Enjoy a prime rib dinner in an old style steak house. They are one of the last steak houses to offer lobster tail on the menu most steak houses have gone the way of "Bar Rescue" a show about dyeing bars. Revamping menus and deleting old school items like lobster. I digress, Chances R is... More

Very good food.Excellent staff. Who could complain. Off on a side street in downtown York it's worth the stop.

My friend and I were staying in York and thought we would give Chances R a try. We got there later and ate in the bar. Very good cocktails, well mixed. We had halibut and pork chops. My friend commented that the halibut was the best he ever had. My chops were flavorful and were quickly consumed. Sourdough bread really... More

The food and service at this central Nebraska restaurant is second to none. Three distinct eating areas and all with a different atmosphere. Don't forget to ask to see the Beer Garden. It's unique.

The food is pretty good. We usually get the prime and its fairly priced for the area. Super friendly staff outside of the greater/owner lady. She always seems bothered and is rude to her staff which is off-putting to witness. The other staff is beyond nice and extremely helpful.

Had dinner here with my husband. Nice environment. Waitress was polite and prompt. My husband had chicken fried steak with sides that he liked. I ordered prime rib sandwich, but received prime rib dinner instead. No worries, it was great and cooked exactly as I had requested. We were only charged for prime rib sandwich. The bloody Mary's were delicious.
