I recently had occasion to dine twice at Aspens at the Red Lion, with friends I hadn't seen in 36 years. It was a perfect, quiet place for old friends to catch up; the food was wonderful; the staff was polite, accommodating, pleasant - even funny! - and never rushed us, and were good at their job! It is not... More

We live local & went for a dinner to say good-bye to friends... Michelle, our server, was such a pleasant relief from the stress of moving!!! She brightened the mood and very quickly had us laughing until our sides hurt. We never lacked for refills or food. She made great suggestions!! Paid close attention to the mood of the table,...

We dined here lat night before playing casino games. It was good in many respects. I felt a little like the waitress did not really care as she spent more time tending to other tables and not doing little things like grinding fresh pepper onto my Caesar salad but she DID at the next table. The halibut fish and chips... More

My husband and I went there because of the ambience, for our anniversary, and it was perfect. Both of our meals were served quickly and just exactly as we had ordered them. The service was prompt and friendly and the waitress was very attentive to our needs. The meal was a little bit pricey, but not as high as I've... More

Your in a casino so your food here is not something your going to write home to mom about. We had to send our salmon back twice to have them cook it right. Our server was very nice and apologetic which helped. The food here is what you would expect in a small town in a casino.

After a long day of traveling it was nice to go to a good restaurant. The service was excellent and food was good. I was pleased to have a meal away from the noise and smoke of the Casino.

Not many fine dining places in Elko, but this is definitely one of the (2) best. Located inside the Red Lion Hotel and Casino, but the restaurant is far enough away from the gaming that it is comfortable and quiet. Also, they are one of the few places open on Sunday. The food is wonderful, expertly prepared and presented. Staff... More

We loved the atmosphere and the food at Aspens Bar and Grill in the Red Lion. Would rate 11 out of 10. This is a quiet sanctuary off the main casino in Red Lion. We sat at the bar -- to be able to talk to people and watch the game on the tvs. The staff is excellent -- very... More

We couldn't be more excited about the overwhelmingly positive reception our new restaurant, Aspens, has enjoyed from both Elko residents and visitors to Northeastern Nevada!

Aspens' guests find a warm, relaxed atmosphere, perfect for an after-work cocktail or an intimate dinner. Accented by hardwood floors, fireplaces, and stands of preserved aspen trees, the new restaurant has a natural feel unique to dining in Northeastern Nevada. A private room for dinners, parties and other gatherings is also available in Aspens.

But perhaps most exciting is the new menu, mixing steakhouse favorites, seafood specialties and flavorful combinations. Delightful dishes include Crab Cakes, Black Angus Burgers, Prime Rib, Atlantic Salmon, Chipotle Southwest Shrimp, Baby Back Ribs, Crab Enchiladas and many more flavorful choices. Aspens proudly serves Certified Angus Beef and the freshest seafood available.

Our brand new Aspens Restaurant continues the commitment to excellence that the Elko Red Lion has always strived for, and we have no doubt it will become Elko's first choice for everything from holiday parties to more intimate get-togethers.

We know you're going to love Aspens!

Aspens received the 2014 Gold Award for Best Romantic Dinner and Best Appetizers in Elko!
