Carson City Restaurants

Carson City restaurants offer a complete range of dining options. When you are in the downtown area, you've got everything from classic casino coffee shops and places for a quick bite of lunch to brew pubs for the after-hours professional crowd and fine dining restaurants for the state legislators. It's all within a small area that has everything within walking distance, jam-packed with history and right near all the goings-on of the state government. Once you get a little farther away from the capitol building, you'll find the types of eateries that cater to families and more casual diners. Tucked away on side streets and in the corners of shopping centers are hidden gems of Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Mexican cuisine. There are even French and Basque diners among the Carson City restaurants. For those who enjoy drinking with their dining, some of the most historic bars and pubs in the state are located in Carson City. If you're looking for some place to eat that's outside of the downtown area, you'll need some sort of transportation to explore all that the city has to offer. Located at the intersection of two major highways, much of the community is spread out for miles along these lines, and many of the great Carson City restaurants are far from the center of the city.

Carson City Restaurants in Casinos

Carson City restaurants and Carson City casinos go hand-in-hand, with 24-hour diners, buffets and that Nevada specialty, steak and eggs for breakfast. Some of the old favorites are located downtown, but as the city has grown, so has the space available to the gaming establishments. These days, you'll find Carson City restaurants in casinos on the main route south of the Capitol and on your way as the capital city stretches east toward the Nevada interior.
