This cafe/restaurant is located in the Red Garter Casino. A dark, smokey place BUT! The cafe is smoke free (no smells) and well decorated. The breakfast is advertised at $3.99 and we agree that this is a great price for a decent breakfast. The sever was pleasant and service was not slow as reported by some reviewers. Wish we'd found...

Ok. $3.99 breakfast or not, do NOT waste your money. This might possibly be the worst service I've ever had. We weren't even greeted. We stood at the front podium waiting and no one even came us to say, 'Hi Guys, it'll just be a second, ok?' We just stood there and they just kept on walking by. Another customer... More

Some great food here for very little money. My husband had chicken fried steak, it's all about that gravy! And I had a chicken salad that had grapes and glazed walnuts and mandarin oranges that was really good!

The next morning I had the $3.99 breakfast special which was two eggs, choice of meat, good size helping of hash browns and toast. No players card needed for... More

It's a really nice place to visit compared to previous years...........not to mention they serve a pretty good and priced reasonably meals. Certainly not the old Red Garter, thank goodness.

We got our food promptly and it was piping hot. The waiter was very pleasant but I can't say knowledgeable because he couldn't remember the vegetable and made no move to find out. All in all good food at very reasonable prices, I would definitely eat there again.

Thank andrea w
