Sit at the sports book bar and enjoy a bite. The cafe itself also has ample table seating, even for larger groups. Reasonably priced fresh cooked to order. CBC is also by far the best casino Stateline.

Played in the casino, but wanted a small bite. The girl at the counter was informative about the food. We ordered chili. It was good. Served with crackers, cheese and onions. She even came to our table with two glasses of ice water. How nice!

The food was very good with nice portions at a reasonable price. Service was good and the place was fairly quiet even though the casino is right next to it.

This restaurant is in a casino located on the Nevada/California border at Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The big attraction for us was the 333 breakfast: Three eggs, three strips of bacon, hash browns and toast for $3.33. Coffee was $1.00 extra. It was a decent breakfast, quickly prepared and brought to our table. Would definitely go again when I'm in the... More

After watching the local high schools football game my wife and I decided to grab a bite to eat. We decided on Bistro Elise though we do not enjoy walking through the casino. The parking is covered parking. The location from parking is in the far southwest corner. The ambiance is a bit cold. The style is between fast food... More

The breakfast here is really good. And organic coffee? Awesome. The food is surprisingly good. The decor is really lacking and the lighting makes you feel hungover even if you haven't been drinking. But, that aside, the food and service is great.

The 3.33 breakfast with 3 eggs, 3 bacon, fried potatoes, and toast is a good deal but got a headache walking through smoke smelling casino and it is so dark and stale in there.

Stopped in here for a quick bite while driving around the beautiful lake. It is tucked back in an old casino, but very nicely decorated and clean! I had a cheeseburger - my goodness it was good! The server was very nice and service was good!

I have never gotten a better breakfast deal. 3 eggs,3 bacon, and toast $3.33. Surprised there were not more people there for breakfast, or, lunch for that matter. Chef salads are served in a 10 inch bowl that is 4 inches deep. They are piled high. I had a hard time finishing mine and my wife got 1/2 done. $10... More
