“Great meals, service, and prices at the Riverside Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

I was recently back in Laughlin at Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort, and I have a new favorite place to eat. The Riverside restaurant, which is open 24/7, offers everything you'd want at good prices, with efficient and friendly service, too.

When you think about it, Laughlin is really pretty close to the middle of nowhere. So to expect really top-notch food might be considered unreasonable. But the Riverside (which really does offer great views of the Colorado River) exceeded my expectations on multiple visits.

The menu has a wide range of choices, with prices ranging from $4.50 casino low-roller specials up to about $15/per person and lots in-between. Pretty much standard American fare, but well prepared, with good portions and very friendly service, especially if you're the type who likes to be called "honey" or "sweetheart".

Seriously, unless you need enough for a small village, skip the buffet and head to the restaurant. You'll be glad you did.

“Best in Laughlin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We live in Bullhead City and have been to all the "best" restaurants in Laughlin. By far this is the number 1 restaurant of all the casino restaurants in Laughlin. We go here for special occasions, two to three times a year. It is PRICY. The food is wonderful and the wait staff is good, if not great. This place offers items not found at other places. When is the last time you saw Chateau Briand on a menu? There is one other restaurant that comes close but it is not in Laughlin. If you are staying in Laughlin and don't want to travel this place is the best place on the river!

“The best food in Laughlin//Period”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Everything on the menu is fantastic. The service is great. The atmosphere is outstanding. I had the tournado Rossini, which is two nice cuts of Filet Mignon with a Liver Patty, and brown gravy, yum yum yum.
