“We were pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

We stopped in at the Hotel Nevada just to get a feeling for their history. When we checked out their menu we decided to stay for dinner. We had their prime rib and french fries, which came with green beans. All were very good. And then we opted for the mile-high chocolate cake - which was huge, and also excellent. As with all casinos, it's a bit (ho-ho) smokey. The waiter was very accommodating. If you enjoy decorations like motorcycles, small wood carved western room scenes, a collection of cattle brands, and similar memorabilia, you'll enjoy looking around after dinner.

“No complaints”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

It may be damning with faint praise, but I've no complaints here. Good food here, and we must have been here at least half a dozen times now passing thru the destination resort town of Ely, Nv. It's very casual, but friendly even is service is sometimes not great, but more like barely ok. Yeah, it's a restaurant in a smokey, divey (sp) casino, but recent meals include a Philly cheesesteak and Prime rib and both were very good. The former more than I could eat. There may or may not be better places to eat in Ely, but we've had good enough meals here we won't know until they screw it up. Stop on in, you could do worse, a lot worse.

“Food did not live up to the menu photos”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Food was OK but the Prime Rib was not as pictured on the menu and not very tasty. First time to stop there and probably will pass on the next trip through Ely.

“Good Food and Friendly Staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

The cafe serves good food and the staff are very personable. Overall the experience was very positive aside from the price. it is a little overpriced for what you would expect in Ely however, the quantities are filling.

“Cheap specials, not worth it!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Husband had the prime rib which was huge, and tasty, his steamed vegies were cooked crisp (good) and had NO flavor(bad) but the barbecue chicken was old, dry, and pretty awful, the fries soggy, cold rolls. Would not go back, but husband would.
