I stumbled across the Cal Neva while walking to the near by Wells Fargo ATM. I came in to use the restroom but ended up staying for hours. That was 5 years ago and I continue to return to this day. The reason I continue to come back is that since that first visit, many of the staff remembered who... More

We got there and were told the wait would be about an hour, appear to be only two waitresses working. Multiple people walked away so we fought it may be less wait than that. Well it was about 30 minutes. We were seated and we then saw there was also a male waiter and bus boy as well. We had... More

We stopped here at Cal Neva to do a little gambling. The place is really old-school and has a cool vibe. My kids love to gamble here because they are extremely lucky here at Cal Neva. My husband and I sat at the bar and played .25 blackjack, which is hard to find at the Vegas casinos. The drinks were... More

This little place has the best food and drink deal in town. I was staying at a "high end" resort near by and this place was a diamond in the rough. This is an older casino, but don't let the outside fool you. They serve 5.99 prime rib and 3 dollar drinks all night. This is where a lot of... More

They have a small, but very good, sports bar on the Virginia street enter entrance. I am from Pennsylvania originally. Anyway they serve the BEST Philly Cheese steak I've had since being home about 5 years ago. I highly recommend this.

We went here for a meal. There was loads of empty tables, yet the hostess was telling everyone that there was a 20 min wait. The more you asked how long it was before a table was available, the quicker you seemed to get a table. We was finally shown to our table, where the bench seats were wet with... More

Sportsbook was open late so we could cash our winning tickets, breakfast was fast and inexpensive. There was something going on here every night we were there. So it was a fun place to be, and we managed to win a few bucks.

The rooms are very good and the price is also a reasonable price. The casino is very heavy with cigar and cigarette smoke. you can literally catch cancer from the air down there. LOL. The machines let you play a while before wiping you out. The restaurant is very reasonable and the food is good. I just eat a breakfast... More

Had their prime rib on sour dough sandwich. Really good! Typical casino diner with standard fare. Has some great food deals and I won $30 on a penny machine ! Didn't gamble too much. Old time , well established operation. Usually always stop by for a cheap, but good meal.

I was in reno for 5 days, staying at Harrah's. I was happily surprised to stumble apon Clu Cal-Neva. While the casino was dark, we did have fun there, winning a bit and playing on a few fun machines.
