We had several meals in restaurants located in casinos and most of the time our meals were only okay, but when we were invited to have dinner to this place, we were skeptical about it.

Ms. Sylvia Bryan We have done considerable research regarding your comments above. A little background: At Cactus Creek, we only serve 100% USDA Prime Beef. I believe we are the only restaurant in northern Nevada to offer USDA Prime, Prime Ribs of Beef. This is our signature dish, seasoned with a medley of freshly ground Southwestern spices, embedded with roasted... More

Don't let the cheesy Reno Casino exterior fool you, there is good beef inside Cactus Creek. The service is as good as any high end steakhouse. Wine list is decent. I ordered scallops....why would I do such a thing at a steakhouse? They were just OK. However, the prime rib special was the bomb! Tasted it off my son's plate.... More

i have been coming to cactus creek for the last ten years now; every sept. I always order the prime rib and have always been impressed. the wine list always has something that goes well with my dinner, and compared to bay area prices, I consider to be a bargain.

After reading the reviews I knew going in that service was going to be an issue. However the service was great, our waiter David took time to joke with us when we were part of the race crowd on a busy Saturday night. The food was good, the atmosphere was also very nice however the bathrooms were out of the... More

The prime rib and seasonal vegis were to die for! The problem was the lack of service. We had a 6pm reservation and arrived about 15 minutes early. To start our visit, the hostess was not at her station, saw us but didn't acknowledge for several minutes. We took an early reservation in hopes of receiving good service. Our server... More

They have definitely gone WAY downhill. First, they changed chefs and now they've lost Alain. The food was mediocre, at best, and service was terrible! Got rid of the choice of sizes on their filet mignon and will not split plates, even for an additional charge. Been coming here for 12 years and enjoyed it until recently, guess we will... More
