Good basic and quick

Had dinner and breakfast here. The service was quick. Nothing special about the food but it was good not to have to find someplace else to eat after traveling all day and be able to eat a quick breakfast before traveling again in the morning.

We had been traveling all day and we wanted something close and good. The Mexican restaurant at the Prospector was great.

Besides travelers, this restaurant seemed to have a lot of locals. Both dinner and breakfast were very good and prices fairly.

The food was only fair. All the booths were taken, and there was a sign indicating food could be served in the lounge next door. We went to the loung and we're apparently forgotten. Service was intolerably slow, and we never did receive our check, we had to go ask for it. This was a poor restaurant in a very... More

Stayed at hotel and was told restaurant was great. It wasn't bad, but I probably wouldn't eat here again. Portion sizes were large. Alcoholic drinks were bad. Whoever made them didn't know how to mix them.

At about 7 PM it took about 10 minutes before the bar staff acknowledged that I was actually sitting in plain site at the bar to order a drink. They served the drink and when I was finished they completely ignored me for about 15 minutes before I just walked out. I was going to order food, however I was... More

On your way through Nev be sure to stop at Margaritas Restaurant located in the Prospector. We were staying at the hotel and decieded to eat at their restaurant. WOW, were we pleasantly surprised! Margarita's would have them standing in line in Seattle. Absolutely enjoyable Mexican food and yes they do have several non Mexican choices. Their salsas, sauces, and... More

After hours on the road, we pulled into the Prospector Hotel and Casino to spend the night. Not wanting to drive anymore, we decided to have dinner at the Prospector Restaurant which is attached. Surprise! Contrary to what we read on the internet, the Prospector is now a Mexican restaurant since the first of the year. We ordered a couple... More
