Had lunch there. The interior of the restaurant is quite nice and you don't have to go through the casino to get to it. We stood there with another couple waiting to be seated while the hostess was just going over some papers behind the counter. Was quite a long wait and we were getting tired of waiting as was...

My husband and I had dinner here on a Saturday evening. Not overly crowded, no wait to be seated. The menu was not overly diverse but the food was delicious. The price was reasonable. The ambiance and views made the experience so romantic. The service was really great. Quiet and tranquil dining.

Decided to stop in for lunch after an early lunch. We were surprised at the two for $20.00 lunch special. It consisted of half a rack of well spiced ribs, with a creative cooler slaw and sweet potato fries called off with a delicious butterscotch bread pudding in sauce. We have often gone for the Sunday night scrumptious Prime Rib... More

We enjoy coming to the Agave for special dinners, holidays I would rather not cook, and still be able to have the traditional or non-traditional meals prepared wonderfully. Service is usually quite good.

We always try and go on a Sunday for their Prime Rib special. Great food and atmosphere. Their Zucchini bread is to die for.

We needed a break from the casino for lunch and found this place. It was quiet and had a nice view with an outdoor seating area. The food was great and you got a large portion. We will stop here again.

Excellent prime rib dinner! In a beautiful setting with two other couples. Half of us arrived about 10 minutes before the end of happy hour and ordered our drinks. The other half arrived about 5 minutes after 6 PM and were refused happy hour prices. The waiter began in a surly mood, and it continued through the meal. It really... More

Just returned home from another great lunch at the Agave. The August 2 for $20 lunch did not disappoint..... Perfectly cooked lamb loin served with eggplant Caponata and cauliflower puree. This came with a wonderful white chocolate mousse served in a chocolate shell and topped with fresh fruit. I'll be sure to check out their special for September.

The Agave Restaurant continues to be our local favorite restaurant. The monthly specials are wonderful and worth ordering each month... at an unbeatable price. The service is friendly and timely. The atmosphere is quite nice for casino dining without all the clatter of gaming machines.

Awesome couples specials. Great price on prime rib. Only problem was calamari was rubbery and very fishy smelling. Definitely not fresh. My wife and I love to go here for date night. Used to sell their own brand of zinfandel no longer carried.

Thank pruiz5
