Rail City has definitely upgraded their facility. The Café is serving an expanded menu and the food is good! The staff is much friendlier than in the past and courteous as well! Our only qualm would be the smoke. They need a new filtration system possibly. Otherwise a fun place.

Good food, friendly sports bar, fantastic Bloody Mary's. Always a good time. I have never gambled here, only gone to the restaurant. Prices are very reasonable, servings are huge and staff is always friendly. Never have been disappointed.

The food is very good for the price, the only problem is the smoke in the other parts of the casino, but that is expected from a casino. Other than that, the meals are great for a small budget. I try to keep it just me and my husband or adults. I'm not too wild about subjecting small children to... More

Just so you know, we are not gamblers. I've never spent a penny on any slot machine, lottery ticket, etc. I've seen too many people give away their money to these places. So why were we here? To check out the buffet restaurant for the first time. Like most casinos, they wreak of strong cigarette smoke from people who prefer... More

The casino is very smoky and run down looking inside. The players club employees look sad as if they are there just because they have to be. The buffet is over priced for the lack of ambiance and the specials are rare if any to locals.

Thank you for taking the time to communicate your thoughts. We recently put in a state of the art smoke eater system which has helped with the smoke. We are also in the works of remodeling our buffet. We hope to have this complete by the end of the year. I will address the players Club employees.Again, thank you for... More

Food in the Ale House is very good and reasonable. They make great sandwiches and salads. The Southwestern Cobb salad is my favorite. Haven't tried much else since most entrees are more food than I want to eat. This is definitely a locals' casino. It seems that the staff know most of the players by first name. A little smokey...

Cheap , Cheap Cheap...couldn't figure out why the locals like it. Slots super tight. Buffet less than tasty. Well I guess they have taken all of the locals money...so they have to go CHEAP!

Hello LynnThank you for taking the time to send us your review and comments. We take them very seriously. As far as our machines, they are completley random just like any other casino. In fact, being a locals casino I would say our machines hit more jackpots becuase of the frequency they are played. I would love to hear the... More

For casino faire this place is great. They have great Salmon fish and chip. Several different fries. They have a plethora of dipping sauces and give plenty of garlic on their fries in you order them. Our favorite is the habenero ranch. Yum!

Noticed this little casino while we were driving around in Sparks. Stopped for a short while. Was ok; just your average little casino, but we did enjoy a few good slot machines.

This casino is a little gem in Spark's, NV about 15 minutes from Downtown Reno. If your on a budget this is the place for you, 90 % of the slots are penny's. They have a nice bar area that has slots at the bar and while playing you drink for free, now that's a deal. They have a buffet,... More
