Good food and view on the main street

We had a very nice lunch here. We had a pasta chili and a blue cheese salad. Also had garlic bread. The ladies at the café were very friendly.

We stopped in for lunch and were able to sit on the back balcony and experience the wonderful view of the mountains. The menu is small but easily accommodated our group of 6. The food was very good, the service quick even though it was busy and the prices more than reasonable. We certainly would go back again the next... More

We popped into the Bonanza Cafe for breakfast on a Monday morning around 9am before the town started getting going. The staff was courteous and friendly. We sat on the back patio/porch which was great. Breakfast was perfect - eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, and hash browns just the way I like them! Prices were reasonable and the food was excellent.... More

Historians say that the Big Bonanza happened in Virginia City from 1873 until 1879 but what do they know? For visitors to this quaint tourist town, you can still strike it rich with a visit to this restaurant conveniently located on the main street, "C Street", and within easy walking distance to all the attractions in town. Whether you come... More

We had lunch here and ate outside on the patio. I had soup and spaghetti and the hey were both very tasty that I finished them both. The atmosphere was inviting and pleasant, the waitress was nice and friendly. The view from the patio is beautiful and peaceful.

Stopped by for lunch, only had to wait about 5 mins for a table outside. Unfortunately it took almost an hour for us to get our food. We both ordered different chicken sandwiches but ended up getting the same sandwich. The sandwich was good, just not what I had ordered. Not sure why it took so long for the food... More

We stopped in for lunch on the way out of town. We received a fantastic meal at a very reasonable price. When you are in Virginia City, I would definitely grab a meal there!
