    Food very good, prices reasonable, comfortable tables, and our server was excellent. Unfortunately, guests have to walk through a smoky casino to get to the restaurant, and guests can smell the smoke in the restaurant.

    We enjoyed the "locals" night very much. There were three of us and all had the "special" sea bass. All thought the sauce with orzo was overwhelming the fish. One had the oysters and said they were great. The room is lovely and the servers very attentive. We chose the tables as the booths are very uncomfortable. The experience was a good one.

    Gem of a restaurant located upstairs at Jackson Rancheria Casino. I'd heard that this Rancheria did not serve alcohol, but can assure you that the Lone Wolf serves wine, beer, and mixed cocktails. We were a party of 4 and all of us enjoyed our food, which was prepared perfectly as ordered. The menu is wonderfully-varied enough to fit any budget -- two of us had burgers & salads, and two of us had steaks. They also offer pizza, seared scallops, and many great-sounding appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. The food service was friendly, prompt and responsive to requests. We were there for a before-concert dinner and were not disappointed. On the contrary, we were all so impressed that we dubbed this place a "food destination".

Food is excellent coupled with no corkage fee and 20% discount to locals you can count on us to continue to come back for many special gatherings.

    If you ever find yourself dining at the Lone Wolf, ask for Shirley. She's a joy and a wonderful server. The food is great. I seem to always enjoy their fish special. This time it was opa...very good. We took the boss and his wife out to dinner, and they enjoyed themselves and loved the food. It's a treat to have such a wonderful restaurant near home. Will come go back again and again.

    This was our 2nd time dining at The Lone Wolf. The first time, we were going to another nice restaurant that doesn't have reservations and the wait time was so long that we left. We decided to try The Lone Wolf and they were able to seat us in 15 minutes. The food, service, ambiance were SO good that my husband requested dinner there for his birthday, which is why we made this reservation. I LOVE scallops and unless you are in San Francisco, you better not order them or they are ruined. But, I wanted them and placed my order, fingers crossed, secretly praying "Please be good!" Well, they weren't just "good" they were the BEST I've ever eaten! Tom's filet was perfect also! The chefs at Lone Wolf are AMAZING! Try it, you'll LOVE it!

    This was a great experience from beginning to the very end. I booked our reservation online, this was a very special birthday and a great surprise. I got everything I asked for without speaking with anybody, this was all done online. Once we arrived, we were seated immediately. We sat on the Veranda and what a beautiful experience that was!! We were the only couple for most of our dinner, that was nice. The food was AMAZING!!! and our service was that of a 5 star, we never were empty. Would I come back? Defiantly. Would I tell my friends? Defiantly Thank you to all the Lone Wolf Staff for making this birthday surprise extra, extra special

    Having dined here once before, I expected much better. The service was mediocre, the food less so. My wife didn't understand why i did not send my dry, tough steak back or why i paid for it. Eat before you come to this casino. There is a KFC in Lockeford.

    Once you walk through the casino and get upstairs the atmosphere improves dramatically. The cigarette smoke and machine bells and whistles disappear. The restaurant is airy and noise level is low to moderate, the outside deck features scenic wooded hillsides. The food ranges from divine to mundane. MY PIZZA WAS FANTASTIC, but my Shrimp Louie featured small broken thawed shrimp. Service is attentive.

    Server made it a point to tell us she had the whole patio and back wall before even welcoming us or taking an order. Can't fault her hustle, but table side manner was poor for this price point. Made it through a very bad shimp cocktail and a very average soup and salad before waiting over an hour for entrees and asking for the check. Told manager we were extremely disappointed; he said he was sorry, he had "staffing" issues that night. Bad excuse and bad experience. Went downstairs and had fish taco's from the fast food joint. Too bad....nice facilities and a great bar with a nice little wine list full of local Amador goodies. Bar and host service are the only thing that bumped this rating to 2 stars.

    This isn't the first time we have eaten at Lone Wolf, which is lucky for them. Our previous dinner was delicious and unfortunately this one was not. However, they demonstrated EXCELLENT customer service by caring about our opinion and going overboard to make us happy/satisfied with our experience. It seems the restaurant was having a bad night, but they are definitely worth giving second chances to.

    First time there, had 5:15 reservation and was quickly seated. The restaurant was lightly crowded at that time, we were seated at the closest table to a west facing glass door which was very hot and had to have the shades be closed. The wait person came and greeted us and asked if we were going to the concert at 7 and we replied "yes". She said she would get us out in time. The restaurant seemed lightly staffed for the fact it was the first of the month and many patrons were attending the concert. This pushed our time to the limit as our wait person was VERY busy. 75 minutes to eat and then have to walk to the extreme far end of the casino for the concert. Need for correct staffing and would be nice to have both venues closer together.

    We went to Lone Wolf to have a special night out. We took advantage of their promotion of Local's Night. As a result, we received a nice discount on our meal as well as no corkage on the 18 year old bottle of wine we brought from our cellar. We ordered two Beef Filets and salads and everything was exactly as we ordered it, very nicely displayed and very flavorful. The dessert, a chocolate mousse, was also very good. We enjoyed how quiet the restaurant is and it's very tastefully decorated. We especially enjoy the booths that line the space. We were seated so that we could see the fire, the kitchen and the dining room. There is outside seating for those that want it but we preferred eating inside on this particular evening.

    Hi We had reservations for 2 couples celebrating their anniversary and I had mentioned it in a e-mail while booking the reservations. To my surprise we were presented with a platter of beautiful desert that had writing along the edge of the platter (in chocolate) saying Happy Anniversary. That was such a surprise and nice touch. It's not that we don't appreciate it but I think it would be nice to be able to pick your own desert. One lady has allergies and couldn't eat any of the deserts. Two other's just wanted Mud Pie. Only one slice was presented. If I might make a suggestion why don't you suggest the customer pick their desert and do complimentary that way.

    Lone Wolf had a very diverse menu from gourmet burgers to fine dining choices. Service was excellent and a great wine list. Even though the menu is very upscale dress code was casual which worked well with the casino. Highly recommend trying out this dining experience for culinary delight.

    We recently dined at the Lone Wolf for the 4th time and it was a wonderful dining experience as usual. The service provided by Shirley was top notch and the menu always seems to have something different each time. A bonus is that the appetizers are nicely portioned allowing a foursome to enjoy one without someone not getting much, (Bacon Wrapped Shrimp is a great choice). All in all, it's great for a couple or a party of 12...we will be back.

    Yep. No other flavor in the chicken except too sweet. Also 2 thighs for $17.00. Not a good deal. I like thighs and these were tender but the meat had no other flavor or spices. The did let me substitute the noodles for a side of Bacon green beans which were perfectly crispy and full of bacon.
