Unexpected pleasure. Had a good dinner went back for breakfast in the morning. Dined outside on deck and was able to watch the wild mustangs grazing . Not fancy but the food was very tasty.

My daughter, my grind and her daughter had dinner here as it was about the only place open. Virginia City restaurants close very early on weeknights, so plan accordingly! We were so glad this was about our only option, as the food was just wonderful! Two of us had the grown up grilled cheese sandwich and it was amazing! If... More

While there having lunch, which was standard fare, we observed a couple who have a small service dog enter the front door. She asked if they had salads on the menu and if the there was seating on the patio. The man who worked there or (owner ?) not sure which, said "there are no dogs allowed here" she replied... More

Wow! We weren't expecting much. We went in thinking we would find the "usual" tired menu items but we were wrong. The menu was refreshing with items we had never seen and lunch and dinner choices you would find in a upper scale eatery. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful and professional. I started recommending this place... More

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
