Coffee was included This was pretty good with most of the usual. Items plus an omelet station. I asked for just a scrambled egg with ham... read more

$3.99 breakfast can't be beat in Wendover. You can pay more for eggs, bacon/sausage/ham, hashbrowns and toast, plus a little extra for coffee or tea, but why would you? Breakfast is just the start, whether you want Mexican, Texican or just plain food, you probably will not go wrong in the Prospector Café.

Nothing about my experience here was good. We waited about 10 minutes to be seated when the restaurant was only about 10% full. I saw several staff members just standing around and talking, so I'm not sure what the hold up was about. About 5 minutes after we sat down the fire alarm went off, but no one got up... More

The hotel has completely redone the cafe & it is updated to a more modern motif. The food is still at a reasonable cost & is as good as ever.

This place is located inside the Red Garter Casino. It used to have a diner look to it, but has recently been remodeled into a very attractive restaurant. It is one of the more affordable places to eat in West Wendover. We ate here for breakfast, and I ordered the ham & eggs special ($3.99). It was a very good... More

Food was cheap, but lukewarm. We never had our drinks refilled. We had to ask for our bill, and that didn't help.

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.
