My wife and I ate here for a late lunch or early dinner. She had a cheese burger and I had vegetable fettuccine. The portions are huge and generous. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of artichoke hearts my dish had. The restaurant has a tropical feel and decor. The service was good and the prices are what you... More

If you are staying at the Harvey's or Harrah's this is probably the best place to get breakfast. They open up at 6:30am, I am use to having breakfast before 8 or 9 and beats having Starbucks for breakfast.

I came here twice since it was convenient and located in the hotel I was staying. Service was okay. Both times our servers came to take our order, deliver our food, and deliver our checks. Anything in between we had to flag them down as they didn't come back to check on us. I ordered the breakfast with eggs, bacon,... More

A great cafe with many menu options. We visited this cafe twice while staying at Harrahs. Both times we were amazed at the generous portions and quality of the food. You won't leave hungry. The open face turkey sandwich was excellent. The wings were a little too saucy but very meaty. The chicken fried steak was excellent. All were hearty... More

We have eaten here in the past and the service was slow in getting you seated, and also slow in serving you. This time we were seated immediately and the waitress was friendly and efficient.

She had a nice Cobb salad, and I had a nice club sando for lunch. All was pretty darn good. Not fine dining but decent for a lunch that's for sure.

We enjoyed dinner here. The restaurant decor fits work,with Lake Tahoe. The wait staff was attentive and professional. Our meal was served within a reasonable amount of time. It was well prepared and plated. The menu was simple and had something for everyone. The marinara sauce for the fried Calamari was exceptional. I should have purchased a quart to go.

My friend and I went into the restaurant for breakfast. There was a brief wait, but not long. We ordered Bloody Mary's which were, unfortunately, served with the meal rather than before hand. The waitress commented that she couldn't find the bartender so made them herself.
