If there is a problem, she takes care of it. She also has a great sense of humor. The homemade biscuits with the breakfast food are... More

I really like this place to just grab a bit to eat and relax a little. Staff is always number one. It really does have the best coffee in town and I am real particular. Get your players card and just have some fun at the Casino. Country type atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. Some neat relics... More

I've been here twice just recently but not prior for many years. I came on Thanksgiving. There were five booths with two persons each when I arrived. The woman who seated me asked if I'd like something to drink, I asked for water to start. Ten minutes went by, without the water, before I was waited on. I chose the... More

Sharkey's is a casino on the main drag, 395, through town. Being hungry when we arrived sent us straight to the restaurant. I has been very nicely redone throughout. They are serving from newer menu and the food is great. I had the salmon and it was delicious. Drenched in herb butter and cooked to perfection. Our server was Liz... More

You can get a chicken fried steak, eggs, and biscuits and gravy for $5.99. The food is good and the atmosphere is very nostalgic. There's a bit of a smoke smell in the casino but that's in every casino.

We asked a local person a good place for breakfast and he suggested this casino cafe. The portions were large. The breakfast was cooked to perfection. The waitress was friendly and 3 people are for $27.00 well worth it. Highly recommend the ham steak and eggs for 7.99. As for casino action all 3 of us lost so the Cafe... More

Quaint restaurant set-up within the casino. Vintage slot machine displays are interesting. The food is OK, but nothing to write home about. There are many other places in Gardnerville with better food choices, but I guess Sharkey's is acceptable if you want to take advantage of the casino.
