I'll start with what I liked about Crystal Bay Steak and Lobster House. Our waitress was fabulous--smart, knowledgeable, patient with us as we fumbled with the menu.

We were actually sitting in the bar at a different lakeside Incline Village restaurant when the people sitting nearby suggested Crystal Bay Steakhouse after overhearing our conversation. Their enthusiasm caused us to get up and give it a try. We are NOT casino people and we're sceptic but they had been so glowing. As we did not have reservations we... More

Had eaten in the restaurant before, but opted for wine and appetizers at the small bar (6-8 seats). Friendly staff, cup of French Onion Soup and split a salad. All good! Note: half-price appetizers Tuesday-Saturday (5:30-6:30).

This restaurant is tucked inside a small casino in Nevada. A hidden treasure. The food was fabulous and the service was fine. The staff was all so friendly. We ordered the table side meals. The ceasar salad, grilled, was the best ceasar I have ever had. We had the Steak Diane, cooked tableside, there is nothing better...it served two but... More

We had a solid experience here. Good steaks and a decent wine list. There were four of us and everyone enjoyed their meal.

I was here for a birthday dinner. The service was exceptional from seating to an excellently prepared table-side caesar salad. Staff were both courteous and friendly.The rib-eye steak was one of the best I have had - good quality, flavorful and a very large 24 ounce serving. The added seared butter, Ruth's Chris style, is a nice touch. The Pot... More

Reserved a table for two at 8PM on a Friday night. We were promptly seated and our waitress (Erin) arrived in about 5 minutes and took our drink order. She dissapeared and 30 minutes later with no drinks or service, she showed up and said the bar was backed up but she was ready to take our food order. We... More
