We couldn't even eat there..walked in and the place reeked of smoke. Seriously?! Maybe they have enough smoking customers so it doesn't matter, but why not clean it up and make it an option for all. Don't bring your kids here...or even yourself.

Unfortunately the entrance is right by the casino and bar and the odor is stronger at the door than actually inside the restaurant. We are sorry that our hostess did not have a chance to seat you in that area. We look for... More

I would at JR's again given the options. As we did go into the casino Red Lion across the street, but the cigarette smoke in the restaurant was appalling.

The dinner for 11 of us was excellent. All the dishes were well prepared and hot. Our server was Lisa and just have to say she is one of the best I've ever dealt with. Checked on us frequently, kept the tables cleared, drinks filled, very professional.

We arrived late in Elko and once we got a room at the Gold Country Inn we decided to just eat in the restaurant in the lobby of the casino/hotel. I had a salad and my husband a Rueben and both were good. They were getting ready to close and the service suffered just a little bit -- but not... More

We are glad that you enjoyed your meal with us, but sorry that our servers were distracted with end-of-day chores and preparing to close. We will be discussing this with our servers to help them understand our guest's needs are the same - whether at opening, mid-day or at closing. Thank you for calling our attention to this and again,... More

The food is very good and the prices are mid range. There is quite a variety on the menu to choose from. Not bad and the motel even gave me a coupon which helped.

Went here for a girl's day lunch. The staff was friendly and attentive. They kept our drinks filled, but they were not overbearing and hovering. The food was good, and you get what you pay for. It was clean and inviting.

j R's was part of the motel complex so we had both dinner and breakfast the next morning and enjoyed both meals. The food was good and the service was great.
