About the restaurant
If you were hoping for a long-winded origin story about the prism through which we define our cuisine, you won't find it here. We just want to feed you cheffed-up versions of comfortable favorites that pay attention to details.

We draw our inspiration from all over the place, so rather than worrying about boxing ourselves in, we just have fun making delicious, craveable food with big flavors.

Look forward to seeing you!

This cafe is located inside the Hilton curio Whitney hotel across from the Eldorado Hotel downtown Reno . We’ve eaten there for breakfast and dinner and all of the meals were excellent . Shrimp and Grits were excellent, salmon dish my husband ordered was delicious . Breakfast burrito was over the top yummy. The bar has tv’s which is nice is you like to watch sports . Service was great too . Highly recommend cafe Whitney .

About the restaurant
We at SKYLINE KITCHEN & VINE are serious about our food, service and hand crafted liquor offerings. We’ve taken all the great things about our original restaurant, Sierra St Kitchen, to Skyline Blvd and infused that into a concept and vibe unique to SKYLINE KITCHEN & VINE! If you’re in the Lakeridge, Caughlin Ranch and surrounding neighborhoods, come in and see what SKYLINE KITCHEN & VINE is all about.

Everything was real good! The prices were a little on the high side considering the portion size.

About the restaurant
Located at 243 S. Sierra St. in a building erected in 1940, specifically for a restaurant, is the home of a unique gathering place. The original address was 243 Granite St. hence the name…Old Granite Street Eatery.

With a menu that reflects a strong desire to provide familiar, comforting dishes having an emphasis on quality ingredients. Combined with constantly rotating craft beer selections, focused wine options and hand crafted cocktails, Old Granite Street Eatery looks to be a casual affordable everyday option for neighbors and community to share in great food and drink. We only reserve 1/3 of our restaurant through OpenTable in order to facilitate walk-in traffic. We also have a large communal table for sit-down service. Please included any children and infants in the total in your party for reservations.

Food is great, but took far longer than it reasonably should have to come to the table. Waited close to an hour for our meal.

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.
