Pretty good food

The food is pretty good, staff is friendly, a little slow sometimes but so much better than their buffet.

We had eaten here during a stay at the Nugget and were not impressed but decided to give it another try. Once again the food was merely average but the seating and decor are nice. The service was much better than it had been on prior occasions. The waiter and the table boy were excellent. Unfortunately, my grandson cut his... More

Every thing we've ever had is was great. I had Joe's scramble for breakfast--just fantastic! My husband had pancakes and thought they were excellent. We've had sandwiches and even dinner when not too hungry and never been disappointed. We've notices a lot of locals come for breakfast and that always says a lot about a place. Excellent value too!

I went to wait for a table so my elderly relatives could be comfortable. The host was rude, asking to break our party in two, then told me it would be twenty minutes. Two very large parties left and I could see empty and cleared tables. Finally I asked and he said he had been looking for me. Liar. He... More

Ever since 1955, the signal "dish" at the Nugget has been the Awful-Awful--an enormous cheeseburger surrounded by a pile of narrow-cut French Fries. Two large patties of high quality beef, plenty of cheese, lettuce and tomato. At $7.95, it will easily feed two persons!

Great atmosphere; but, the food was average at the most. Not nearly what i expected. We've eaten there several times in the past and were always happy with the food. Our two trips to the cafe this last trip were disappointing. Maybe the cook had an off day.

This place has a great menu for all. Right in the Nugget Casino but no smoke smell and privacy. The veggie burger is maybe the best ever. Love it.

Rosie's has good comfort food. Menu selection is american fare with some mexican food. Service is always good as servers have mostly been here for decades. Price is right. Nothing special just good food overall. A stable place you can count on. Typical restaurant and booth seating. Good place to talk while eating with privacy.
