We decided to eat some seafood while staying at the Nugget Casino...what a good decision! I had the bowl of mussels- delicious! Every mussel was opened and the broth was so good I slurped it up with a spoon and the fresh, hot delicious bread that is served at the table. My husband had the peel n eat shrimp. It was a very generous portion that was plenty for dinner with bread! Our friends had the seafood bread bowl soup- the soup was chock-full of clams, lobster, fish and crab in a delicious thick and tasty soup. The service was good and the prices were very reasonable. We will be back!

The Nugget hotel has several good restaurants. We always go here because we enjoy seafood. The chowder and bisque are really good, the oysters are fresh, and the service is excellent. Our preference is to start with the Chilled Seafood Platter, which has a nice variety of good fresh seafood (king crab, oysters, lobster, etc.). Goes well with a good chilled white wine. We’ll definitely be back when we’re in Sparks.

The best pan roast ever. We have been eating here for almost 15 years and always get the pan roast. By far the best in the world. Staff is always friendly and fast. We take guest there all the time and they order various items and we have never heard a complaint. We always leave with happy guests.
