“Maybe we’d built our hopes up too much.”

My Wife and I have had some really great meals at Basque restaurants in California and Nevada. Unfortunately we don’t love near any of them. The nearest is in Gardnerville, a two-hour drive, so we drove up there to give the Overland Hotel a try. Maybe we’d built our hopes up too much.

We had a seem-traditional Basque meal. Since the stew had garbanzo beans in it, that was probably also the bean course. The entrée was served with a few potatoes on the plate, which would have accounted for the potato course. Portion sizes were adequate; typical of a regular restaurant. The salad was excellent and everything else was fine except for my Wife’s halibut, which had been cooked to death. It had been turned into a hard, dry chunk of something tasting vaguely fishy.

Service was excellent and everything except the fish was at least ok, but based on the less-than-abundant portion sizes and the terrible fish, I can’t rate the restaurant higher than a three and don’t plan to return.

This place is Great to have a four course family style meal. You first get soup, bread and butter. Then a bowl of their house salad and the entree of the day. Next was your meal that you order (which I got Halibut) last but not least was a cup of ice cream and coffee. I recommend this place for lunch and dinner. Enjoy!

Our favorite treat for a great family style dinner or lunch. We usually go for the lamb or the steaks. The restaurant is VERY clean and spotless. The staff will serve your meal, and the owner, Elvira, will usually cook your meal to your taste.
This is our Gardnerville favorite for sure. Have a good appetite, as this place will fill you up good.

My son and I go on an annual fishing trip in Nevada. One of the things we absolutely must do, is to have dinner on Saturday night at the Overland Hotel. The previous owner (Mrs. Elvira Cenoz), has gotten to know us personally. We always have the Basque lamb chops with extra garlic. The meal is truely a treat and the food authentically prepared. Meals are served in the Basque tradition of family style: they are good wholesome, and there is plenty to eat.
