“Stumbled in to this old Reno site and found FUN and surprises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The drinks are cheap. The food is a bargain: their grill gives you enough for 2 meals for a low, low price. There is lots of glitter and activity and the casino is in the heart of old Reno near the Biggest Little City signs. Lights and glitter a plenty. Unfortunately the Pleasure Pit wasn't open when I was there. (It sounds like a place you might like to take a shower after visiting, especially a shower with someone.)

A.Crosby - Our family loves to eat here every time we come to Reno. It have become a tradition for the 4th of July holiday. They give best food portion, prices,& most importantly FLAVOR. They have the best War wonton soup (it's very fulfilling), Turkey gobbler is deliciously different and all the breakfast are superb. I got to say "Hats off to the WHOLE crew" and my compliment to ALL their Chefs.

My husband & I fully enjoyed our experience at the Cal Neva in Reno. The cafe is fast, clean, delicious, has the kindest staff & best prices in town! The gaming was good & very enjoyable & we also enjoyed their pool tables & darts on the 2nd level.
We would highly recommend the Cal Neva to everyone.

This busy casino has an excellent coffee shop, with amazingly good prices, and turns out fine food, and lots of it, with good service to go with the food. It is always busy, and a great place for breakfast or lunch.

Our family visited the restaurant on the third floor ordering steak & eggs, prime rib, and country fried stead entrees. As soon as we sat down our waiter came over introduced himself and took drink orders immediately. He returned and we ordered, since my husband is diabetic we were asking about substitute items working with us our waiter suggested tomatos instead of potatos and he was very kind while doing so. We enjoyed the food and the service so much that night that we drove from the airport hotel to Cal-Neva for breakfast the next morning. Wait times were less than 30 minutes and we played penny slots while waiting. Thank you Cal-Neva for a truly nice time.

I visited the Cal Neva in September, 2013. Since I'm a sports bettor, this place has been my favorite since the mid-80s. This was my first visit since ownership changed hands. While it's still a great place to place bets, the makeover gave it that corporate feel. They continue to have the best odds and the sports deli is nice. The clientele is still about the same: you get a mixed-bag of low-lifes, serious gamblers, loudmouths and the rest. But in sportsbooks, as compared to other areas of casinos, it's not as big a deal. They now have digital boards, but smaller TVs. Overall, if you're not a snob and only interested in sports' action, this is still the best place in Reno for sports betting. The writers are generally friendly, but don't have that connection to the players like they used to under former ownership. I miss that comfy feel that old sportsbook had. Still, my favorite place to bet the games!

WOW, I am really impressed with the service they provide. The Hotel service was great, the atmosphere was awesome, and the food was great. I would reccomend this place to anyone who loves penny machines and good times. It's in a great location down town right by the river and street festivals. Definately the best bang for your buck!
