Dukes Chophouse at Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Now Serving Up Weekend Brunch

Indulgent creations, six-egg omelets and Bloody Mary bar await weekend guests

SCHENECTADY, NY — Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady announced today the start of brunch service at the award-winning Dukes Chophouse. A brunch menu filled with original creations and traditional mainstays will be served on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Guests will be treated to decadent and indulgent menu items such as “Dukes’ Colossal Cinnamon Bun” ($10), a massive, pull-apart bun meant to be shared; Lemon ricotta blueberry pancakes ($12); plus a selection of six-egg omelets and Eggs Benedict offerings. All meals are served with a choice of tea breads from Villa Italia.

The Dukes team is setting up a fully-loaded Bloody Mary bar, where guests can fix a brunch beverage that’s as loaded – or as simple – as they please.

“From fresh seasonal items, the extensive wine selection, delicious lunch and dinner menus, and now the best weekend brunch in the Capital Region, Dukes Chophouse continues to offer our guests exactly what they want – great food and exceptional service in a fun atmosphere,” said Rivers Casino & Resort General Manager Mary Cheeks. “Coupled with our gaming promotions and NFL action in Van Slyck’s entertainment lounge, our brunch menu at Dukes is yet another reason Rivers is the place to be this fall.”

Dukes was recently awarded the Open Table Diners’ Choice Award, which recognizes outstanding restaurants based on customer feedback. Guests of the casino’s steakhouse have raved about the quality of entrees, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the sweeping views of the Mohawk River from Dukes’ outdoor patio.

On Sundays, brunch at Dukes Chophouse will be closely followed by nonstop NFL action in Van Slyck’s entertainment lounge. All season long, Van Slyck’s will carry every NFL game and offer food and drink specials during tailgate hour through game time. Fans will be treated to $1 hot dogs and $2 domestic draft beers, and specials on stadium favorites like sliders, nachos and wings. Tailgate hour begins at noon on Sunday Gameday, and an hour before kick-off for Monday Night Football.
