    My Rib Eye steak had a full side of Grissel, my baked potato was not done and the shrimp looked & were dry. They need to have the same old shrimp cocktail they use to have. Harrah's has them beat hands down on everything especially the steak. My husbands steak was OK but far from what you would expect from the Nugget. This is a second bad meal in a month from there so guess we won't go back.

    I wanted to thank you the staff at JA Nugget Steakhouse for a wonderful and unforgettable evening! My life long friends and family came in to celebrate my best friends parents 50th wedding anniversary on Oct.31, 2014. They deserved the best and received it along with a surprise anniversary cake. We will definitely recommend this place to all our friends and family! Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I have not visited the steakhouse for a few years. It has been remodeled and is a great environment for (as was such for us) birthdays or a romantic get away. The service was outstanding! As we brought our own bottle of special wine, believe it or not the Steakhouse had their own Wine Somalia! It was outstanding. He stayed at our table and instructed us on how to taste wine. What an unexpected experience!!! Overall would we go back... For sure!

    I brought my fiance' here for our first anniversary & was expecting more than quality than I feel that I recieved. The Escargot had so much garlic on it that you couldn't tell what it was let alone enjoy the broth with bread (the best part). One of our salads had the wrong dressing and my steak was tough and overcooked. I am not one to send food back, I just never eat there again. We ate at the Buffet at Peppermill 2 nights later & the $21.00 Buffet which had Prime Rib, was a much better piece of meat than my $32.00 Rib Eye from The Steakhouse Grille For the price, I expected Ruth's Chris' quality, not Sizzler.

    I would summarize feeling about service by saying we largely felt ignored. We sat for 25 minutes with empy plates and empty water glasses long after our dinner was consumed, eventually abandoning plans for coffee and desert. Things were bad from the start, with our table not being ready at the time of reservation, which was at the time of opening so lingering guests cannot be blamed. Our dinners, served after a long wait, were served luke warm, though my Halibut was overcooked and dry. And even then our plates had to been sent back to the kitchen as the potatoes/vegetables were not what was ordered (the same thing happened to the table behind us).

    Our second visit to the Nugget since the new ownership change. Easy access to make a reservation on-line. Seated quickly, both stemware and dishes were not clean, told staff, appeared to have only quickly wiped stemware and returned to us. The waiter seemed to not understand our order, requested a cesear salad, instead brought house salad with ceaser dresser. replaced with correct order. Requested champagne by the glass for two people, only one was brought, corrected, glass was cold but not champagne. Ordered a lobster tail dinner and steak dinners, lobster smelled old, difficult to cut and eat, finished meal. Didn't order dessert or coffee paid for meal and left the restaurant without further comment to any staff. Last visit planned.

    We always try to go here when we stay in Reno and it is always excellent service and food. This was a holiday weekend and the service was not quite as good as usual and 2 people in our party were not really impressed with their steaks. My prime rib was outstanding. Just think they were a bit off this evening. We have been there many times and would still highly recommend this restaurant.

    My wife and I had a most enjoyable evening at the JA Nugget Steakhouse. Service was excellent. The salad was so fresh and delicious with their Champagne dressing. My wife had the 6 oz. filet and it was so well prepared that it almost melted in your mouth. I had the New York Steak and I can truthfully say that it was one of the best steaks that I have eaten in a very long time. This steak had been properly trimmed and cooked to perfection. Although the steak was a choice cut, it had the juicy, tenderness of a prime cut of beef. In my opinion, the price is outstanding as the steak comes with your choice of salt baked potato, rice pilaf or mashed potatoes as well as a delicious salad and great breads. Extensive wine selection as well.

    Service was good. Don't ask for anything extra they won't remember to bring it. Also don't bother to put in that you are celebrating a special occasion because they won't mention it. But the food was good and the room is nice.

    Was seated immediately, at a table that had a dirty wine glass. Was wondering if I made a mistake in dining there, but the staff was on top of their game and could not have had a better evening of dining, celebration. The one thing that could be better was a $25 corkage fee.

    From the time you walk in to the time you leave, you are the most important thing to them and that means a lot to where and when I dine out. Chef was more than happy to add a twist to a fish plate my wife was having which made it more to her liking (she is Thai). Service from Alex was as personal as it gets1 Thanks

    We had eaten at this restaurant in March for a birthday celebration. It costs us about $300 total and it was not good. We returned in March for our 31st anniversary. I was skeptical but my husband said they had revamped the menu. OMG! The food was delicious! We had the baseball sirloin and I swear it could have been a filet minion! I had salad with mine and hubby had the chicken. He said it was the best soup he had ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection for both of us. Seriously, cannot wait to return! FYI, one Manhattan (awesome!) Two sirloin dinners, tax and tip and we were out of there for $54! Absolutely eat here!!!!!
