Stop here every year for a meal on our long drive to vegas. Servers are polite but food took a bit long to come out. Food portions were huge for the decent price.fries are good.all in all,not bad.

poor service & tough steak specials. Staff stretched to far in busy times, some cope most don`t. It would help to get this fixed.

Servicer was polite although it did take longer than expected to get our salad and BLT. Salad was tasty but would have been so much better chilled. We will definitely go back again.

I was there on a Sunday and the special was all-you-can-eat pot roast for $12. The waitress was super nice and helpful and added to the experience. The pot roast was a wonderful comfort food dinner after a long day of driving and no lunch.

Service is not what it could be. The food is always good there and the portions are healthy. The decor is charming and nostalgic. The menu choices are perfect. The restaurant is clean and welcoming. Oh, did I mention they have the best fries in town?

Lovely staff, who had the level of attentiveness down to a fine art. Food was great and there are prices to suit all levels. We had Spaghetti Marinara and Chicken Caesar Wrap with fries. Both meals were plentiful and very tasty and cost $9.99 + tax each. Very reasonable.

We visited Ely, NV for several days and ate several meals at the Prospector Restaurant; every meal was excellent. Great sandwiches, delicious and plentiful pot-roast which could not have been better and service was attentive, personable and efficient. My previous review, several months ago, was not positive, however, they have made major changes and now I would recommend them to... More

Service was slow and the two times we ate here, the food was cold when it got to us. I would not recommend it
