Great Food and Atmosphere

Food well prepared, presented, and ample portions. You will not go away hungry from here. Drinks were very good, also.

The first thing I'd like to say is that i am not a native Elkonian, but a transplant from the suburbs of Detroit. Locals rave about this place, it a "must have" they say. Well, I could pass... The Picon Punch, a Basque staple is absolutely a great drink, Sam makes it perfect and 2 are not enough but three... More

LOVE the real culture here. Miners, drunkards singing in Basque, INCREDIBLE food, families, small town reunions, and permanent laughter. Don't expect to sneak in, I felt sniffed out as an outsider and absolutely welcomed at the same time. Drank picons. Second one is better than the first. Can't wait to return!

Six of us went there for dinner on January 31st. to enjoy a Basque dinner. The service was poor and the food not that good. I had the worst of the six. I had a difficult time cutting my steak using the steak knife. The waitress could care less. The same from the cashier. We love Basque restaurants in Reno... More

Try it; you will like it! The Star Hotel is a must eat here when visiting Elko. You better be hungry because this is a full meal with soup, salad, and much more.

Always a treat, if you like basque style food (or never had any) you must stop in at The Star. We enjoy their Picon Punch in the bar to get our appetite whet. Then we enjoyed family style servings of homemade soup, salad and a good variety of main dish recipes. I love their lamb chops! Have stopped here a... More

I ate my first meal here over 40 years ago. The last time I was there was a few weeks ago. You'll have more food than you know what to deal with. All entrees come with sides that are pretty much full meals. It s a one of a kind experience that I dont believe any other restaurant offers. For... More

We almost alway eat here when passing through. The scene is mostly local & many workers from nearby mines. Tables are regular sizes & also family style. Food is hearty and well prepared; we never finish all we are given. Wine list is simple but inexpensive, & just fine. This is certainly not "one of the best meals we've ever... More

Being a "local" one would think I would get tired of frequenting a number of restaurants over and over again but that being said, it's because we have several excellent ones available. I never get tired of going to The Star. Arguably one of the best steaks in the region in a family atmosphere with an attentive staff and a... More

The food is great if you can get in before getting drunk. The wait is usually so long that if you are not careful you will be drunk before you ever have your meal.
