“Good reason to visit Sparks”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

John's Oyster Bar is located inside the Nugget Hotel and Casino. We eat there every time we visit the Reno area. Any of the Pan Roasts are fantastic. They are so good we don't get around to trying anything else on the menu. We were having lunch there the other day and the owner, John Ascuaga, stopped by to chat. We all went outside for a photo together. I call this a "Destination stop."

“Tantalizing Pan Roast”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Why deviate from the Pan Roast - The heavenly bowl of flavorsome shrimp and or seafood is first-rate every time

“It was very nice, food and service excellent.”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

All 4 of us enjoyed very nice sea food. If you want fried food, seek someplace else.

“Pan roast was great.”
Reviewed November 2, 2009

Friendly staff, great pan roasts. Fresh oysters on the half shell were disappointing (but I come from a seafood town).
