This restaurant was such a delightful surprise! The bar is the most authentic, fascinating original place I have been to. There was a full choice of alcohol and the wine recommendation was excellent. We are outside on the patio and everything was exceptional! I had the Maine Lobster salad and the calamari appetizer with remoulade sauce that was fabulous. This... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner here with outstanding service. Lovely white tablecloth atmosphere. We had the calamari appetizer, excellently prepared , very light and delicate, appropriately portioned for an appetizer. We shared a ceasar salad, which was flavorful. My husband ordered the Carbonara (half order) which he enjoyed and I had the rib eye. Both were delicious. For dessert we... More

First of all - the very unique atmosphere - old time era, the view, the building, the furnishings, can't match this. Next, the food - amazing, very well prepared, gourmet. Great selection of food too, and something to match various budgets - from $8 pastas to $35 special of the night. The service was great and the food was served... More

Best thing about this restaurant: Vic, the impeccable, masterful waiter. Ask him to tell you stories of being John Wayne's butler! The food was very good, although I did think 14 dollars for a small salad was a bit overpriced. However, everything was very tasty. The decor is sweet, and it is in a historic property. Great views over the... More

We were staying in Virginia City in February, and found many of the restaurants there closed at 4pm that time of year. Mississippi, the bar tender at the Silver Queen called a few places for us to see what was open at around 6pm, and the Crown Point was one of them. We drove to Crown Point, and was pleasantly...

We came from Reno for a birthday dinner. We were disappointed to find the casual dinner menu (not mentioned on the website or when we called). It was not busy at all and the service was very slow. The food was also a disappointment. We have eaten here before and had an amazing meal and great service. Not sure what... More

Hi Kathy- Thanks for your feedback. I'm disappointed to hear that your experience with us was less than perfect. Our fine dining service is offered Wednesday through Sunday, year-round, with the exception of several weeks in January when we shut the restaurant for heavy maintenance and cleaning. We have made a commitment to be open 7 days a week through... More

Food was good but the quantity of included fries was quite small. Draft microbrew beer was cold and tasty. When we were there it was very slow so the service was instantaneous

Vic is the greatest waiter on the planet and Serg creates meals that could take on anything in New York or Chicago! Best buffalo I EVER had!

Our food was very good, so was the ambiance, as there was a piano player with a nice selection. I just wish the service would have been more consistent. Our server treated us with indifference, did not mention any specials compared to the other server, that just had a way of making his guests very special. A bit disappointing for... More

Hello Kyron- Thank you for your forthright and specific feedback. While I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and ambiance, I'm sorry to find out that your service experience was not what you had hoped for. One of our servers (I'm guessing the one who served you), while far from new to the profession, is new to our... More
