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!

We had a group of 8 that went to a breakfast mini-meeting. The service was great. The food was great. The price was good. We were in Virginia City for an event and it was nice to be able to talk and hear each other without having to be loud. The atmosphere is wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant.

As part of a tour, our choices were limited and the meal was only so-so. Don't know what they offer as regular fare. We sat on the back deck with the Hundred Mile View so we seemed to be the last served.

We had lunch/dinner out on the back deck overlooking the valley. We watched as wild horses walked down the street. The food was very good, and the waiter was great. We all had burgers and would recommend them. Who wouldn't want to eat at Bonanza when you're in Virginia City?

4 of us had lunch there last week. Mainly salads and sandwiches. Service was good, food was good (nothing super fantastic, but tasty), and weather was nice out on the deck. Would recommend it.

Great deck overlooking the valley. Food was OK- had a calimari salad. The fish was great but the salad did not have enough stuff in it.

My wife and I stopped by the Bonanza Café for a quick bite while roaming the streets of Virginia City. The restaurant wasn't busy for a Wednesday at 2p.m., so we purposely ordered something that takes very little time to prepare. Had we known that the family seated near us had already been waiting 40 minutes for their meal, we... More

Food served fast food style in plastic baskets. Reasonable priced and quite good and good service. I had the calamari salad and was very surprised at the quality and quantity. Get adult beverages at the bar but order food from the table, a little different but it works.
