Stockman's Steak House in the Nugget is FANTASTIC. Some of the best Steaks I have had in a while. Great selection and superb service. Great Adult Beverages as well. All items are Al A Cart. Great value for an upper end meal.

Good place to go for short term gamming and the resturant as good menu choices. I would have the roast beef dinner with the chocolate cake for desert. I would avoid the other food court its not worth the cost.

Nugget stopped the Buffet a year ago. Yes they give points for use in the Cafe. The only Buffet in town is at Saddle West.

It's probably cheapest to rent a car at mccarran airport and drive into pahrump. It's a beautiful scenic drive through the. Pass and there is a cool bar at the top of the pass.
