Well if you are looking to go back twenty years in time here is your perfect destination. decor a mess, plastic flowers everywhere. The topper is the howling moon.

Constructive feedback is very important to us here at Cactus Creek. We have taken some time to thoroughly vet the comments in your review. We are happy that you found our prime rib satisfactory. Our 100% "USDA Prime", Prime Rib is slow cooked for 12-14 hours. As you experienced; it is exceptionally tender. We take great pride in preparing it... More

We decided to go to Cactus Creek for Valentine's Day (a day earlier because they were booked until late on the day itself). We hadn't been for several years but fondly remembered its prime quality beef. Well, we were let down. Service is terrific, seating comfortable, but the ambience leaves much to be desired since they have white spot lights... More

We were dressed rather casually for a fine dining experience but were treated well in every regard. We ordered different things at our table for four, and each entree and side was both delicious and carefully presented.

The Cactus Creek SteakHouse had been recommended to my wife and I by many of our Reno friends so we thought we would give it a try. We signed up for the Nickel & Nickel wine paired dinner and were really disappointed. The roasted winter vegetables were terrible. Dry,, tasteless and poorly presented. The pan seared, oven finished squab was... More

I live in Reno and had heard good things from various people, but c'mon. It is inside the Bonanza Casino. How good could it be, really? The food was great! I love a good ribeye syeak, but the one I had here was the best I've ever had. Even better than the $64 wagyu steak I had once in Seattle!... More

If you have never had the experience of having true "prime" prime rib, go to Cactus Creek Prime Steakhouse. It is unlike any other prime rib I have ever had. Cooked to perfection, medium rare, a knife is unnecessary. No exaggeration. We used our forks just to test it out and it worked. As others have stated, few people would... More
