Looking for a new place to eat we came across the Prospector Cafe. It has a very similar menu as the Hotel Nevada Coffee Shop because, as we discovered they were once owned by partners. The Prospector adds their own flair to basic menu items making the meals more unique. Sandi had ham & eggs and I had the chicken... More

The ribs were delish and the servings were so large that it was enough for 2 to share. Great service.

We've never had a bad meal at this place. The staff is always friendly and the lounge is comfortable as well.

I had a couple of meals at the Prospector while staying there several nights visiting my brother in Ely. The portions were huge. I ate some and took the rest to my room where there was a refrigerator. One night I had sirloin and shrimp. I got my steak rare as I requested; the green beans and sweet red peppers... More

The room is very dimly lit in the evening and the place needs a bit of a refresh overall. The food was about average taste-wise but could have done with a bit more seasoning. On the plus or minus side - depending on your world view - the portion size was huge.

The food was okay, but nothing to write home about. The hotel attached was great. We enjoyed our visit.

The prospector casino and restaurant were both small. I think they are better than average but not as good as a very good rating. The wait staff was very attentive, kept my coffee full and made sure to attend to our needs quickly. I ordered a Greek salad and received a generic Greek dressing, bottled sliced olives, a few crumbles... More

We definitely consider ourselves "foodies" and we were very impressed with the food at the Prospector. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner over several days and each meal was perfect! We highly recommend anyone traveling through Ely to eat here!

Had chicken fried steak and eggs, prospector potatoes, and dollar pancakes. I couldn't eat it all, which is unusual and everything came cook just as I requested. Our waitress was a sweet lady that actually seemed to like her job, at least in front of us!
