An Elko institution

Being my first visit to Elko I asked at my hotel about local favorites. The girl at the desk was new to the area so she was little help. So what else to do but check on trip advisor! Being a family style service its not well suited to solo dining but they do their best to accommodate. The... read more

This is a landmark restaurant, and anyone in the know who travels through this little town makes early reservations for The Star Hotel. Go in and say hello to Scotty! Try their famous steaks! Served family style, you'll have to hold yourself back from eating too much before the main dish arrives, because that rib eye or Filet Mignon is... More

Not everyone brings their family into this section of Elko, but for Basque style family dining this place is not to be missed. You may be seated at a table with other diners at your elbow and the din of conversations is loud, but the dining experience is a bit like Thanksgiving dinner at gramma's, i.e., lots of food prepared...

We went on a Saturday around 4:30 when it opens and there was a crowd waiting. We were seated quickly. The place was packed. Service and food was excellent. When we left I left my sunglasses behind. I notice Sunday they were missing. The star is closed on Sunday so Monday morning as we were heading home I dropped by.... More

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
