Restaurant Review & Home

We stuck mostly to old favorites.

Glad to say that the Oyster Bar overlooking South Virgina at the Atlantis is still a incredible bargain. Fresh succulent seafood. We had our small bowel of clam chowder ($3.95) & the Sea food Platter for two ($29.95) a feast of Lobster Claws, Oysters on the half shell, Prawns, Crab Legs & claws. Total cost with tip, taxes & drinks $65. Waiter Paul the Best!

Lunch at Louis Basques Restaurant downtown I having the lamb, Linda the Pork Chop with soup, salad, beans, potatoes & dessert. Also included wine or soft drink. $11.95 plus tax & tip. Delicious with excellent service.

Dinner second night at The Rapscallion a old time restaurant on Wells reminiscent of some in San Fransisco. Excellent Escargot ($12), Butterleaf/walnut salad $7), hot sourdough bread, 1/2 stuffed Lobster ($26) with wild rice & veggies, martini & wine for Linda, Ice tea for me total cost with Taxes & tip $105 & worth every penny. Our waitperson Melinda efficient & friendly.

We also had a excellent Key Lime cheese cake (huge $6.50)) from the Peppermill bakery in the new tower.

We went South from Reno on our return trip stopping at the new Gold Coast Casino in Carson City & the old long time Nugget there. Then at the Carson Valley Lodge in Minden were we had an excellent breakfast (Eggs Benedict & a Omelet $20.00 with the Old farts discount) before one final stop at The Lake Topaz casino before heading home on 89/4 a fabulous if bit harrowing drive by Alpine Lake down to the bay area.

Wonderful Wonderful 10th Anniversary!

Thanks for the report. One thing that I am curious about is the "new Gold Coast Casino in Carson City" Where is this located? I tried to search for information, but came up with nothing. There is the Gold Dust West, but that has been there for years.

Happy Anniversary!

I may have the name wrong but it sure looks rather new & is on the north east side of town. I had not been in CC for perhaps 6 or 7 years.

It could be the Gold Dust West, Peddler. Used to be Pinon Plaza? On Highway 50? Bowling alley? It changed names a few years ago when bought by a different company.

Yes that was it as an older bowling alley was attached. Sorry for the confusion. The attached hotel looked new but as I said I have seldom traveled that route in recent years.

Peddler - thanks for the restaurant reviews. Based on your past postings, I figured you wouldn't miss the Atlantis Oyster Bar! I'm going to assume that you meant "bowl" of clam chowder, though ...
