Goodd, but not sure about "eclectic"; if you have to proclaim it yourself...

Really good! Located adjacent to Carson Hot Springs, a great place to get a healthy lunch or dinner to follow up your healthy mineral bath soak. I was there on a Monday for lunch, and a few groups of co-workers from nearby businesses were just finishing up. Attentive service once I got seated and... read more

The food I had was really good. I loved their pasta! Having live music during dinner was very delightful. The staff was very friendly as well. I do, however, think the skull décor is sort of creepy!

We loved it when it was at the old location and now they have entertainment here at the new one certain nights. All they need now is outdoor dining. Service was good. We each had pizza. Spouses was a meaty one from the menu which was fabulous. I did custom vegie which was very good but I expected more umpph... More

Food and service was excellent, I found the food a little on the pricey side, but delicious. Love the atmosphere, enjoy looking at all the unusual art on the walls.

Sassafras was located in downtown Carson City until wrongfully evicted by the owners of the building, Tom Johnson, Jeff Shaheen & Mark Beauchamp. They reopened at the historic Carson Hot Springs Resort on January 28th, 2015 and are continuing their successful and eclectic restaurant. The address is 1500 Old Hot Springs Road, Carson City, Nevada, 89706. 775-884-4471

Very helpful re: special diet. Waitress Molly was a gem. The salad was fresh and good, we were happy. The hotsprings next door were good as well.

Sass is one of our favorite places to dine in Carson--the service is always excellent and the people who work here are friendly and glad to see you. We have never had poor service here. They make their own ketchup and pickles(!) and I believe they use local products when they can get them. We have dined here many times,... More

Sassafras Eclectic Food Joint closed their doors in downtown Carson City some months ago to the dismay of many of us who enjoyed the different foods, the excellent staff and their various music - in our case the big band sounds and jazz. They recently reopened at the Carson City Hot Springs Resort in North Carson City, just a few... More

The wait staff was very good. The décor was quite dark. The food was average. The price was quite high.

But hard to find. They have re-opened, as of 1/29/2015, at the old Carson Hot Springs Resort, which is off the beaten path in north Carson. Same menu, mostly same staff. Good food, and they frequently have local jazz combos performing in the evenings.
