The decor is New Orleanish as is the menu. Wait staff were friendly but the food coming from the kitchen was slow. Hard to get in and out on a lunch hour. Prices were high for a quick lunch but the menu was varied. Try it once and if you like it you can always go back no matter what... More

Lots of locals. Fried chicken special and service was excellent. Fun evening with friends and family. It is adjacent to the Carson Hot Springs which has just had a renovation and a brewery on the property is nearly open. Will continue to be a great place for locals and tourists to congregate.

Next to the Carson City Hot springs resort this restaurant is unassuming from the outside, the parking lot was full and we were hungry after soaking in the hot springs. We got one of the last tables on a quite part of the restaurant with a view to the stage. Their Nachos Barrachos are the best Nachos I have ever... More

This place is frequented more by locals than tourists, I think. The staff seem to know most of the customers, including our friends who took us to Sassafras. The food is quite tasty. The fried chicken I had was unusually good...the crust was crisp and flavorful and the meat was tender, juicy and delicious. The bartender makes a fine saharan!

Surprisingly innovative/edgy menu for this cozy/fun location. Varied entrees with nice beer selection and sometimes live entertainment.

We eat out once a week, so we really try and find new places around town, being relatively new to the area we always use trip advisor to help us make good choices, there really isn't an abundance of great restaurants in Carson city. We got a New Orleans kind of vibe..or at least that's what they are going for!... More

The atmosphere was as they describe, eclectic. The shrimp and cheese fondue was excellent. Best fried chicken we've had at a restaurant, and the bacon and bleu burger didn't disappoint. They make their own pickles and ketchup too. Great service and reasonable prices.

We heard about Sassafras from friends and have been there several times over the last few months. We love the food and the service is always friendly. The menu is extensive with a lot of variety. You might call it eclectic. There's always a ton of specials too. Good bar and plenty of parking. You could even take a dip... More

This is my favorite kind of place. Creative yet simple. Moderately priced. Casual. Sandwiches are amazing. Service is friendly and appreciative. Cant say enough good things.
