Must Eat Here

There are 2 restaurants in West Wendover worth eating at. The first would be the prospector cafe. Food was always great, now they've expanded their menu and more great things to try out.

We had breakfast at the Prospector Café in the Red Garter Casino and found the menu items to be similar to the other major casinos but the prices slightly less expensive. As in all the casino restaurants I've ever experienced, the staff was efficient but not especially friendly. It's a hard job and they deserve generous tips. The breakfast food... More

The Cafe has temporarily been relocated to the Italian restaurant in the casino (I assume they must be doing some remodeling, the same as the rest of the establishment), but they're still serving their cafe menu. The area has less seating, so I assume that was the major reason for the wait. The hostess was extremely polite in getting us... More

We had dinner here, and it took forever for our drinks to be served, despite the fact that the place was nearly empty (casino and restaurant). The food took a long time to be served as well, and this gripe comes from a couple who love to linger over dinner. Food was truck-stop ordinary. This place cannot survive much longer,... More

My husband and I ate here at 2 am. We both got a full breakfast for under $10 total. It's not remotely fancy, but gets the job done for a late night diner. The waitstaff was friendly considering how terrible their jobs might be.

My brother likes breakfast at the Prospector Café even more than the buffet offerings in other Wendover casinos, but for me, it's only average as a breakfast place. I would probably choose a national chain breakfast place over the Prospector if given that choice, and I would certainly choose a breakfast buffet over the Prospector, just because I like more...

Visited this place 3 times while in Wendover. If you can get past the way the floor looks, looks like it's covered in old grease but I think it's just worn to the point of near non-existance, you'll be quite happy with the breakfast. They put out a breakfast buffett on the weekends that is huge, looks great, and is... More

I was seated immediately as the place was almost empty. The waitress took my order after a considerable wait. I ordered Prime Rib medium rare and it came well done. The salad was soggy and the vegatables were cold. The waitress never came back to refill my water or check to see if I needed anything else until she brought... More

We used to enjoy breakfast at this quaint little restaurant at the Red Garter Casino. The Casino has been totally remodeled, but the restaurant was neglected during the remodel. The old carpet was stained and worn, the restaurant smelled of old carpet and the chairs and tables were shabby at best. Really killed the appetite. I hope they have plans... More

When I walked in I sat at the counter. A group of employees were standing at the other end visiting, looking at cell phones, etc. It was about 5:45 am. I was virtually ignored until my waitress ran over from the cashier stand to get my order. The coffee was old tasting. There doesn't seem to be much helping each... More
