Good Food

Food was very good and buffet looked average. Service was mediocre but the food is inexpensive and very good. They have a breakfast special for $3.99 which my wife ordered and enjoyed. I had omelets two days and both were excellent.

When my wife and i arrived there was about 8 other couples ahead of us. There was one Cashier/Hostess. Every time someone came to pay she would ignor those waiting. On spanish speaking man started to get upset for the wait but we still waited another 10 minutes, over 30 minutes total. The place was staffed pretty well in the... More

We made the mistake of having breakfast here on a visit to West Wendover. They had one young woman trying to seat guests and run cash people out. We waited in line for close to a half hour with maybe 8 or 9 people ahead of us. I blame my husband who wanted breakfast and wouldn't leave. The had a... More

Love the 3.99 full breakfast. This Café has been remodeled and looks super nice and clean, great service as well. Within walking distance of the Rainbow Resort.

Loved the cheesesteak. Ate there twice. Fish with shrimp topping was good too. Hate their canning jar water glasses. Otherwise good

The service is so bad gained a year waiting. They almost refused to make a pot of decaf coffee then made one it was so bitter wasn't able to drink it. The price isn't bad but really need to work on customer service.

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
