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.

We decided to go to the Prospector Cafe after seeing that the breakfast was inexpensive and substantial. We were able to have a nice breakfast in a nice restaurant before we headed home. Great little restaurant!

Prospector cafe used to be a quaint diner within a casino. They served hearty stick to your ribs type food. A few years ago they took out the counter and remodeled. Too bad it's not the same. First thing I came across is a hostess/cashier on her cell phone. At 3 am! She quickly jumped and seated me at what... More

We had the weekday buffet. (Which I'm not sure they always do) It was reasonably priced and even though the selection was limited everything we tried was good. Could have used more toppings for the salads, there weren't even crutons. Also some nacho cheese would have gone well with the chips and Mexican food they had. We would eat here... More

Had breakfast and it was cold. Price was with in reason and staff was very friendly. My husband had a meat lovers breakfast skillet and he had a hard time finding meat on it, but it was hot. I had two eggs hashbrowns and sausage and it everything was cold.

We should have been warned off by the blaring music in the parking lot. But no, had to go on in to the Prospector Café for dinner where the "music" was just as loud and obnoxious. I ordered prime rib, which was delivered to the table just two minutes (literally) after the salad arrived. It was cooked to a bloody... More

Stopped for gas and a meal after visiting the Bonneville Salt Flats. Had a chili burger. It was cheap and decent. Nothing memorable about their chili.

Very clean and bright facility buried in the casino. Friendly waitstaff. Burgers are a good size and have a nice offering of sides. Hot flat top grilled flavor. Good cafe fare.

Arrived about 8:30pm on a weekday night. Charming, fun waiter promptly took our orders. We ordered Prime Rib, and two of the salads. All the food was very good with generous portions. The prices were quite low. We enjoyed our dining experience
