We had heard so many wonderful things about this place so we decided to try it. We ordered 2 steak sandwiches and that was it. We opted to take out because it was so busy for lunch. First off the sandwiches were pretty tasty. But the sides were horrible. We got the fries and a salad. The fries were cold... More

This was definitely Basque. Lots of food, lots of courses, friendly staff, good service. Just seemed a little bland. Must be what you are used to. Different areas, different flavor so??? If ever thru Elko again we will try another place.

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner here. It was perfect- great atmosphere, crowd-pleasing food, good service. The only ding is that we had reservations for 7 pm and our tables weren't ready til 7:45, and only then because we suggested splitting our party into two groups. Way too late. But once the picans were served, everyone was happy. Go, you... More

If you can only go to one place in Elko, make it the Star Hotel for a meal. The venue is fascinating with many old photos and the food was one of the best meals we had in the US. The staff were very efficient and friendly and told us many details about this fascinating town.

My boyfriend and I were in Elko for his work and wanted to go on a date night. Luckily we heard of this place. We were so satisfied! Very friendly and quick service. We left very full with left overs to take too. We shared the ribeye steak and it was one of the best steaks we have ever had,... More

This is absolutley the best place on the planet to eat. Even if you do not like lamb, eat the lamb shank, it does not taste like lamb and everyone with me said they did not like lamb and I talked them into it and they all loved it. Try the home made wine too, the best. I am so... More

We went to the Star Hotel on a lively Saturday night. We checked in and was advsied the wait was about 30 minutes, so went to the fun bar area, ordered two beers, and enjoyed conversation. There were a lot of locals out for Saturday night, as well as a few tourists like us. In the bar area, there is... More
