Nugget Casino Resort - The Steakhouse Grill Ratings and Reviews
The Steakhouse Grill is in serious need of a remodel. Everything about the room is tired and outdated (fabric on the booth seating could easily be from the 1980's it's so worn). Table cloths and napkins were sadly in need of ironing. Staff uniforms were sloppy and poorly fitted. The kitchen is tiny and therefore food service is incredibly slow. Our entree took well over an hour to be served. Although we never complained, our server acknowledged the slow service and offered us a complimentary dessert which was a nice gesture. The best thing about the Nugget - great parking garage!
Pretty good restaurant: excellent wine, very good service, the food was pretty good except I didn't like their salads, not sure why. The chicken, the veggies, the potato, filet mignon brushetta were all good. The mac & cheese was good on Friday night cuz it had bread crumbs on top for a nice crunchy coating. But on Saturday, the same dish had no topping and wasn't as good. I would go there again.
Friendly staff. Our waitress Sheila was excellent. Husbands steak was wonderful. My lobster was lacking flavor and had to send it back because it was not hot or cooked through. Would not order that again but the 16 oz size was to tempting not to try. Wish I had ordered something else.
I was entirely underwhelmed by my experience at the SteakHouse. We were a party of five and were seated at a table for eight. This made conversation a little difficult. We were given only 1 breadbasket and hardly enough butter for 5 rolls and the rolls should have been more artisan and HOT for the price were paying for the entrees. No one offered to bring more bread. One in our party ordered a Bourbon Presbyterian with Jameson and it came without soda or gingerale. We had to ask if there were any specials for the evening considering it was Easter. There was only one and that was Prime Rib which I didn't think was a good choice for the day. The prices!!!! Considering everything was ala carte I thought prices were a bit high. How much would a baked potato cost to include with the entrée? The food was passble, but that was it Will not be back.
Had a nice steak dinner here. We all enjoyed beef steaks. 3 of us had filets and one a rib eye. We did get a salad or soup with the steak, we all had salads.
We were supposed to have a sauce with the steaks, but the waiter did not ask us what kind we would like, so we didn't have a sauce.
They offered a wine special for 40.00, and it was a nice wine.
The room is still very nice there at the Nugget.
And our waiter was friendly.
But it is not the best steakhouse in town.
Been going here 25 years. I remember when it was good. It has gone down hill steadily. The whole Victorian Square surrounding this Casino Restaurant is not somewhere to venture out into in general. There is a constantly potential for confrontation.
There are many good steakhouse in the Reno/Tahoe area and the Nugget Steakhouse is no longer passable as one of them. Food arrived cold and under-cooked. Service was slow . Wine list is not what it used to be. There was no decent choice of zinfandel. We were informed they would not serve certain desserts, we assumed because the staff were tipped over by a larger crowd than what they're used to having.
Bartender was a rookie and didn't know how to make a cocktail with the right ingredients. This hotel casino is full of riffraff and the security is lacking. Witnessed people smoking marijuana inside the casino and right out side the Victorian Square entrance in groups. Sparks police were parked where they usually are over by the East entrance, but no officers to be seen. Anyone who knew the way the Nugget used to be knows this place has turned into a dump.
We really enjoyed our meal at The Nugget Steakhouse. The maitre d' brought us our favorite wine, opened it at our table and explained what they are doing at the vineyard. The waiter was very attentive and brought us our meal promptly. We had the daily special, which was superb. Chef Julian came out to ask us how we liked the food, and we complimented him effusively. We recommend The Nugget Steakhouse to anyone who is looking for a fine meal in Northern Nevada.
We have been to this restaurant before and the food and atmosphere is always perfect. I was a little disappointed with the service, it took almost 15 minutes before a waitress asked if we have been help, although we did have water and bread i was disappointed with the wait.
Service was outstanding! ! Art, Alex, Joe, Jose, and Sam always provide superior service. Brianna and Kyra are superb additions to the outstanding staff. The new menu and Chief have renewed our interest in the Steakhouse. We plan to visit at least once a week. No
I'm a local of 28 years and it was my first time going to the Nugget Steakhouse. Made reservations online and we walked right in. The service was a bit slow and we didn't see our waiter around for a while. They weren't horrendously busy for a Saturday. Overall, food was decent but not fantastic. If you want sides you order them seperately from your steak. You get soup or salad with a meal, the house salad was actually really good, I ordered mine with vinaigrette dressing.. Steak was dry and flavorless. Honestly, the worst filet mignon I have had. I had high hopes. I ordered the mashed potatoes for my side, those were dry as well. No butter or flavor. The best part was dessert and I ordered the Vanilla Créme Brulée. That was pretty tasty! Overall for a $100 dinner at a Steakhouse I probably wouldn't go there on a date night again. If seemed like casino people and large parties had a better time then we did. Oh well, it was an experience that we needed to check mark off!
Made Reservations for Valentines Day, Feb. 14, 2017. Overall pretty disappointed with the food and service, the only thing I can say in their defense was that it was Valentines Day and they were very busy, but clearly not prepared to handle the volume that is predictable and customary on Valentines Day. The wait staff was polite and courteous, they tried to resolve issues, but failed. Examples, Ordered three different steaks, all medium. Two were bloody, not medium pink, one diner consumed the steak, the other was sent back. It took 10 minutes for someone to check on us and try to re-cook the steak and 20 minutes to get the steak back, No exaggeration, everyone was done with dinner by the time this was fixed. We were charged for 2 bottles of wine but only ordered/consumed one, this was fixed. The couple sitting next to us ordered a bottle of wine and completely finished it prior to their dinner salads even arriving 30-40 minutes, they got up and left.
Went for daughters 21st birthday (which is on Valentine's Day). We were a party of ten with six being children (ages ranging from 3-14). The staff was very accommodating. Didn't act like they were above having children in their restaurant. They made sure we had what we needed during the night. The food was good. Nice choices for appetizers.
Due to the fact that John Ascuaga has an "in" with the Basque and Rancher communities the quality of the steaks and lamb chops is incredibly good. Also, the lobster is the best in town. I wouldn't call this place the "trendy" place to go but I would call this restaurant the best value for the superb quality that we have in Reno/Sparks. It is located in Sparks so your Yelp searches may not bring it up even though it is just 5 minutes from Reno. I recommend this place if you want to talk quietly with family or your romantic partner.
Ask for Sandy, she will give you superb service.
Caveat: We went early on a weekday and the restaurant was nearly empty, however as our meal progressed it started to fill up.
Our waiter was very entertaining and attentive. He had difficulty reaching the whole table so we participated in the placement of dishes on the table, lol.
The sommelier was outstanding and a great pleasure to talk to... so much in fact that we made a reservation for a special wine pairing dinner a month out!
The chef was also great to interact with and we learned that the restaurant was undergoing some menu alterations in the very near future.
Atmosphere normal for casino restaurant, not secluded but we had a table near the front... the noise was a touch high for intimate dining.
My wife is temporarily disabled and they accommodated the wheelchair with aplomb.
Food. Delicious, interesting and well presented. Made allowances for gluten-free diners that were not bland and they provided gluten free bread for the table.
Not up to par.Sat us in cramped aisle table until we asked to move to a booth. Food was average . Wedge salad had one cherry tomate and a teaspoon of avocado. Lamb shank very dry. Husbands bison steak was delicious. I would order steak next time. Too packed for early New Years Eve dinner.
Went there for New Year's Eve dinner. I had my doubts as the last 2 times we went there (once in 2014 and once in 2015) the food and service were subpar from what it used to be prior to those years. Anyway, the ladies had lobster and we guys had the porterhouse steak. Everyone thought the food was great as was the service provided by Matthew.
We will definitely try the Nugget Steakhouse again.
