Now I normally avoid buffets. Food's cold, generally visibly unappealing, you have to balance plates, etc. We were stuck with no place to go on Thanksgiving so booked the Dingus buffet. It was great! They created a nice, softly lit spot for the buffet, it wasn't crowded with plates, was kept HOT and the food was wonderful. Plus we had... More

My husband and I love coming here for special dates. The atmosphere is unique and fun, the food is never disappointing, and the service has always been good. We really enjoyed the buffet brunch on Mothers Day. Last time we went, we got the alligator appetizer and it was surprisingly tasty! Good spot if you're looking for a switch up... More

Nice menu with some unique appetizers. Food is wholesome and tasty, with ample portions. Service is always very good. Parking is not very convenient, so be sure wait for the shuttle cart.

I need to be gluten free so in discussing this with the waitress I asked her to confirm with the chef that the entire meal was GF. She came back and confirmed that it was and the lead hostess was with her. When the plate came it had deep fried polenta wedges so I asked her to go back and... More

Three friends and I ate here recently. Steaks are their specialty. My friends enjoyed their steaks, but I was disappointed in mine. It was supposed to be the most seasoned (cajon) steak. I ordered it medium, but it came well-done. The seasoning was very bland and the Beans and Rice were very dry with hardly any seasoning at all. I... More

The restaurant is set on a hilltop with lots of parking and a shuttle to get you to and from the parking area if mobility is an issue. This was our first visit and there was a huge wedding party in the main restaurant so we opted for a table outside. Our covered space was quiet with great views of... More

We had a wonderful dinner sitting up in a gazebo on the hill as the sun was setting. The food was excellent, I had possibly one of the best steaks I've ever had. The appetizers are creative and delicious.

We have always seen the restaurant from the road on our many trips to California and back to Reno/Tahoe. We finally stopped in for an afternoon meal. We unfortunately came before the dinner menu was available but had some great appetizers. The Thai chicken wraps were great as were the potato skins and cheesy bread. Very attentive staff and lots...
