We were in Elko for 5 days for the Cowboys Poetry Gathering. Of the 5 days we ate at the Star Hotel 3 times! Each time we tried something different on the menu and everything was amazing! Scotty and his staff are always cordial and efficient even though they are extremely busy. They always make us feel special. Coming from... More

If I compared this to all Basque restaurants I have been to, I would give this a Very Good rating. But, there is so little competition in Basque restaurant field today. So I want to say this is one of the best choices out there, but I have eaten better in the past. So, sitting at the bar, drinking a... More

Best experience ever! Highly recommended and not the least bit disappointing! Large portions of homestyle food - the cabbage soup was the best I ever had! Next time I will share a steak, but enjoyed all of the food, wine and atmosphere!

We thought we arrived early, 5pm, but at that point there was already an hour-plus wait for seating. Worth it! Served semi-family style - that is, serving dishes come out, not apportioned to the plate, but seating is per couple or group, not at a long communal board with a lot of strangers like some Basque eateries (but which in...

Everyone recommended this place. We knew there would be ridiculous amounts of food, and my friend does not have a big appetite. We decided to split an entrée, but did not agree on how we liked our steak cooked so we ordered the baked beef instead plus side dishes for two. That was a mistake. The baked beef was unexciting,...

We love the bar for its authenticity, Manchego & Apple , and Pincon Punch. The bar menu has several offerings and is well worth a stop. The restaurant is fun but simple. Come with a huge appetite or order small because it is a tremendous amount of food. If you are lucky there will be live music. Staff is friendly... More

The best steak sandwich I've ever had. Amazing The seating is a bit tight, but the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. Sides are served family style.

Traditional Basque steakhouse,not to be confused with a chain steakhouse.All the steaks are grilled to perfection,and huge.The Caesar salad is the best,and each meal comes with a table full of sides,including green beans,spaghetti,fries,and others I'm sure I'm forgetting.Served in what I'm guessing is a traditional Basque setting in large festive rooms.This place is fantastic.Great food.

Thank Danny454
