The waiter was friendly and fast but the food slow ( medium-rare prime rib took 45 minutes) . We were ready to leave! Sides and salad were small! Also slow coming from kitchen. I had a card from a manager ( 2 weeks prior) for a free dessert and the new manager ( a waiter who had recently been promoted)... More

When in the Reno area, a stop at the Cactus Creek Prime Steakhouse inside the Bonanza Casino is a must. Make reservations to ensure you get a table. Although somewhat pricey, they only serve the best prime steak. It melts in your mouth. We've been twice in three months (anniversary and Valentine's Day) and it does not disappoint. On normal...

My wife and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary and we wanted to go someplace special. Several times we have gone to the Branding Iron cafe at Bonanza Casino for the Monday chicken dinner specials and have been disappointed. I was under the impression a steak house at the same location couldn't be that good. I was mistaken. Our dinners... More

We went on Valentine's Day. I got the filet mignon and lobster. It was fabulous. The filet was cooked to perfection. Loved the food. The Absolute martinis were very small and seemed to be deluted. The service was ok but not great thus the four rating.

We had heard this was a great place for prime rib. Unfortunately, both my husband's and my cuts of the prime rib were half fat and the portions which we could actually eat were sinuous and hard to chew. We also had ordered our meat medium-well done, but they were both rare. The cuts of meat were of such poor... More

We had several meals in restaurants located in casinos and most of the time our meals were only okay, but when we were invited to have dinner to this place, we were skeptical about it. We were proven wrong and found Cactus Creek to be exceptional, the Prime Rib which was their signature dish was excellent and I ordered their... More

Ms. Sylvia Bryan We have done considerable research regarding your comments above. A little background: At Cactus Creek, we only serve 100% USDA Prime Beef. I believe we are the only restaurant in northern Nevada to offer USDA Prime, Prime Ribs of Beef. This is our signature dish, seasoned with a medley of freshly ground Southwestern spices, embedded with roasted... More

Don't let the cheesy Reno Casino exterior fool you, there is good beef inside Cactus Creek. The service is as good as any high end steakhouse. Wine list is decent. I ordered scallops....why would I do such a thing at a steakhouse? They were just OK. However, the prime rib special was the bomb! Tasted it off my son's plate.... More
