I had been told to try the gourmet burger, which you could either get topped with foie gras and a quail egg or applewood smoked bacon, I chose the later. The burger included a dinner salad, which was iceberg lettuce, some shredded carrots and some grape tomatoes. When the burger arrived it was held together by two skewers and was... More

A throw back to the 1960's with gracious table side preparation, courteous service and delicious steak. Chef also makes terrific au gratin potatoes. Better to eat inside the restaurant which is smoke free, than the bar area which is noisy and smokey.

I had a late night meal that consisted of appetizers. The wines were very good. Staff was very friendly and checked on us frequently throughout the meal. I regret that I wasn't hungry enough to eat a steak that night so I cannot comment on that.

The prices are great. We brag about our little hometown steakhouse to all of our friends and family, it was time to... More

Here is another restaurant that treats single diners like second class citizens. I asked for a table for one. They would not seat me at a regular table or booth inside the restauant, saying they were booked up, and offered me one of those tall tables in the bar. This is not too comfortable for what I thought would be... More

Came into the Carson Valley Inn for a late dinner and was very happy we found CV Steak House. We were seated right away, and the server was helpful and very friendly. The steak was great. Highly recommend their meat choices as the scallops were a bit on the dry side. The salad was okay, just a bit wilted. That... More

Walked in close to closing time. Where seated promptly, very nice staff. Food was good. We were asked to sit in the bar area right after we had finished the dinner, they wanted to close the restaurant area. For the inconvenience, we were offered a free drink. Nice gesture. The only problem I have with the place is that even... More

This is my favorite spot to have dinner in the area. The table-side tossed salad is fresh, delicious, and not over dressed. The steak is great. If you want a smaller portion, they have a small filet that is not on the menu--simply ask your server. I often enjoy the Salmon, too--a huge portion of well-prepared fish. For low-carb diners,...

The CV Steak House at Carson Valley Inn is a classic steakhouse. White tablecloths, nice surroundings - once seated, it feels removed from the casino floor. Service is attentive, while being friendly. Steaks are quite good. If you play there, you can pay with points. It would be good to eat there more often - but the casino often gives... More

Those au gratin potatoes in the photo are wonderful! My brother and sister in law live in Gardnerville, right next door----the three of us had the most wonderful "early bird" dinner. The servers ( CLAYON and Daisy) were both terrific) only to be topped by a great bottle of Coppola Claret and wonderful meat! The dessert (grand meniere cheesecake) was... More
