The Cafe is especially good. Solid meals and a great daily special. But you will need to come hungry!

We tried this steak house on our way to a football game not having in mind anywhere else close to the stadium on our way. We looked over the menus and asked to be seated as a walk in. We were promptly seated and orders taken. My husband and I both ordered prime rib with baked potatoes and cream of asparagus soup. We were given a basket of fresh baked bread that went well with the soup. My favorite was I think a lavender bread. Im not sure exactly what it was, but it was good. The prime ribs were easily the best that we had. I ordered the smalest size (10oz) but it almost covered my plate. I tried in vien to finish, but brough home the rest. We were to full for desert but watched as the table next to us ordered bananas foster and it was prepared tableside. We had a wonderful experience. The only thing I didn't like was the terrible amount of smoke in the casino. I understand that is part of the sasino, but a better air system is desperately needed here. The solution to this is to enter the casino on the west side entrance in the last doors. These doors go right to the restaraunts without having to walk through the casino, great option if you are dining with little ones. We will good back many times for this wonderful meal.

If you want free drinks serve rapidly, this is NOT your place. If you are looking for terrific deals on food, this is NOT your place. If you want single deck black jack with a couple dealers only or a half a craps game, this is your place. We like going here when we want to be low key and quiet. Employees are ok, but none out going like you would see from Peppermill employees.

If I don't want to hassle with the big crowds, I go to Bonanza just to relax and play. The employees are all very friendly and personable.
