This is a decent place to run into and chat with locals, while sipping a cup of coffee and eating a homestyle dinner. The food is quite reasonable in price, making is a much better deal than the corporate chain restaurants in town. I had the savory beef stew special that was freshly made, but I was too full to take advantage of their homemade pies. Service is very relaxed, so don't demand snappy urban service and you'll enjoy yourself. Engage the waitress in chat if you can. This is a small town with plenty of time to waste.
The Prospector is a combination hotel, casino and restaurant. Reportedly the rooms are very nice; but I cannot say firsthand I just ate dinner here and fed a few dollars worth of quarters into the slot machines. The casino was bright, noisy, and festive. The dining area was darker, quieter and relaxing, with a very comfortable booth. Just what I needed after a long day driving and hiking at Great Basin National Park. Service was slow; but they looked pretty crowded so maybe they were overwhelmed and are normally quicker. The food was very good. I would eat here again. Price was reasonable too.
Favorite Dish: I had the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and the vegetable of the day (I think it was green beans). All of it was tasty and well presented.
