The staff here was so nice and helpful! When they saw me heading in with my kids they stayed open and were so nice offering food suggestions and hotel suggestions. I got the breakfast platter and let me tell you it was the best $3.00 I've spent in a long time!

Every Friday Pioneer Crossing has a great Prime Rib buffet. Salad fixings, choice of potatoes, even something for those who prefer not to eat the Prime Rib. The best part is the price. Can't take it with you, but you will certainly eat your fill. Get there early as everyone in Fernley knows this is the place to eat on... More

Our steak was a little more done than ordered and the waitress was right on top of it suggesting a better quality steak and getting our food replaced. You couldn't ask for better staff. I had...

Typical casino restaurant, but adequate to provide edible caloric intake for the trip eastward along I-80.

not sure what the people that left negative reviews are talking about. We've eaten there many many times and you can't beat the food for the price. Breakfast is awesome at the Chuckwagon, Lunch and Dinner also great. Had fish and chips there once and all I can say is AMAZING! The prime rib night though... well the food is... More

I have seen negative reviews on this place, one person who kept saying they were refused service, 3 different times because of a shoeless child. So, put shoes on them. Our visit was fantastic. Service was great and friendly, thanks Heidi. Ribs were outstanding. Salad bar was fine, according to my wife, I had the house salad and it was... More
