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

Eat indoors or on the small backporch. Slot machines. We shared hamburger and fries which were good.

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.

We went for a late afternoon snack. Tried a couple of their french fries...both were amazing, the garlic was really good! We sat on the deck and had the most beautiful view of the day. The waitress was exceptional, very friendly! Might go for a meal next time.

The Bonanza Cafe is located right downtown in the historic section of Virginia City. It makes a big deal about having a "100 mile view" from the patio, but, really very little can be seen from there. The menu is the usual sandwiches, and they are pretty expensive. I asked for a root beer float, was told they didn't have... More

We went in based on a recommendation from an area merchant. We were on a tour and only had 3 hours in Virginia City. We got a patio seat, right away. They were not very busy. We ordered our food, and got beer from the adjacent bar using the coupons they gave us (2 for 1) which was nice. However,... More
