We are always pleased with the wonderful menu (updated often, usually to feature seasonal delights) at The Winds, the nice wine & beer offerings, and the relaxing "Rat Pack"-style of the beautiful dining room lined with comfortable leather horseshoe-shaped booths around an enormous double-sided fireplace.

What brings us back, time after time, is the waitstaff. They are all seasoned professionals, but one is our absolute favorite. Joshua has been our requested waiter since we first dined at The Winds years ago. He is not only an exemplary waiter - professional yet personable - but also charming, funny, and has a remarkable memory for his patrons' names, preferred dishes, preparation preferences, and his recommendations are always focused on our tastes. Joshua embodies the many attributes that all restaurants should seek in staffing their businesses.

Kudos to The Winds for always providing a memorable dinner, but especially for Joshua, who makes the trip from The Cities worth the drive.

We use to love this place. Nice ambiance, great food, great service. The last two times it has been so subpar that we will not go back. It is expensive but use to be worth not having to drive to the city for a "fancy" dinner. Not anymore. I don't know what happened but we will not be back. Too much money to take another chance.

We had a great meal here one night. We showed up without reservations and were quickly seated. The service was great and the food was very good. We will return.

There is very little food in Hinckley other than fast food. This place is casual, cordial, has a nice bread service, tasty salads and good entrees that are nether over sized nor over priced. Enjoyed the planked salmon one night and lamb chops another evening. Martinis are small. Wine pours are generous. Thankfully, the cigarette smell from the casino does not permeate this restaurant.

The food is average, pretty expensive for what you get.
I had a steak, my Nephew had King Crab.
The Caesar Salads were good, but quite small.
The French onion soup was just ok, rather small.
The Bill came to $ 115.
I have had the better food for less price.
