Meet the Chef:

John Reck, Assistant Executive Chef

Chef John Reck

Meet Executive Chef Corey's right-hand, Chef d'Cuisine and Assistant Executive Chef, John Reck. John was his dad's right-hand chef first, growing up watching him work in a restaurant kitchen. Once old enough, he started on dish duty but got lucky when they were short-staffed. John was asked to prep food and the rest is history!

We were lucky to have John join Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort® in May of 2016. Not only has he learned to be a better chef and manager, but working here has transformed him into an extrovert. Learning on the job, John has taken an interest in not only advancing his food preparation knowledge but also his customer appreciation skills. He now enjoys spending time in the dining room, talking to guests and hearing their valuable feedback. Guests nearly brought him to tears during his first standing ovation following a superb Ruthie's meal!
