We enjoyed eating here. Love the ambiance and slower pace. The food is average, but it is a nice place to eat lunch or dinner. It is closed Wednesday and Thursday and open for breakfast only to guests of Edith Palmer Country Inn.

White tablecloth dining in the old stone cider factory. Very nice! Good food. Beet salad and snapper enter were a good combination. Nice walk east on B Street - no need for a car from downtown. One of our favorites in Virginia City.

Before entering the Core, look and admire the gates which are most impressive, and sets the scene for ambience and good food. The chef Richard, prepared very tasty meals, and the staff were very pleasant and efficient. This is one restaurant worth visiting.

Dinner was amazing. Chef Richard's prepared our two entrees to perfection. The texture, taste and presentation of his homemade pasta sautéd with shrimp, locally grown organic vegetables in olive oil, herbs and spices was heavenly. The mouthwatering ribeye was huge and deliciously melted in your...More
