Serving food until 11 PM saved us as we were traveling late. My friend does not like spicy food and ordered the prawns without spice and it came that way. She loved it. We were very pleased with our service and food.

We were staying at the Prospector for a visit to Great Basin. Chips and salsa were yummy and Mexican food was decent, too. Breakfast was less than amazing, but super convenient. Coffee mild, but drinkable! Crispy bacon was the best part!

We tried Margaritas after reading the TA reviews. Don't let their location dissuade you from trying their food. You have to walk thru the entrance to the casino inside the Prospector Hotel to reach the dining area. Once there you will be greeted by very...More
