I won playing lightning bolt slot 539.00. This place is known for the regular residents of Reno. Their steak house is very good. The coffee shop is good home cooking and the waitress's are fun.

The steakhouse inside the casino is a hidden gem for those who love Prime Rib. Juicy, seasoned, excellent service and great wine selection. Who could ask for more?

Went there this last week. Had fun in the casino itself. The staff was fun and pleasant. The restaurant is horrible. Terrible service and c'mon instant mashed potato flakes or whatever. The food tasted awful and could not get a drink refill.
