Fairchild's has moved and is renamed Pearl Oyster Bar & Grill. I'm just happy you can still get oysters. They were pretty good and I'm sure I'll eat here again when back in Reno for the bowling tournament.

The new Pearl is out standing with great food and service. The pan roast soups are outstanding. I had a shrimp Louie and the shrimp was fresh and tasted great. The menu has many choices and they all look great. Do Not miss eating here.

Our salmon not only looked like a work of art, it tasted the same! The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

We had lunch here a couple of times. It was hard to choose what to have, as many items sounded great! Their pecan pie was soo good, and not too sweet, but very filling. Their pan roast with the many types of seafood was very good too!

We have been enjoying the pan roasts at Fairchild's (now Pearl) for almost 20 years and were shocked to find it renamed relocated to the center corridor between the El Dorado and Silver Legacy. The crab pan roast did not disappoint. It was succulent and a generous portion, far too rich and one person, so we share. I have obtained... More

Never had better or bigger Coconut Shrimp anywhere. The service was good and the food was fresh. It looks expensive but for the quality and amount of food it is not even if you drop in for just an appetizer.

My boyfriend and I have eaten here on several occasions over the past year...We love their lobster pan roast! They are very generous with their lobster....and it's surrounded in the creamiest most favorable of soups! The staff is friendly, the place is clean and reasonable priced...It's one of my favorite places to eat.

I just planned a trip to Reno and one of the main reasons was this restaurant! I wasn't finding a link to the restaurant on the Silver Legacy website so I sent an email to Marketing.
