I used to live in Reno and would go to Louis' Basque Corner. Louis' has never disappointed. The food is always good (and definitely Basque). The service is great and so fun to eat "family style" and meeting new people.

Always a favorite during the Reno Nugget Sheep show. They do a great job with large groups. Lamb chops or leg are always a favorite for supper.

No, unfortunately not at the bar but there are high tops set up close to the bar and they are welcome to eat there. I personally would rather take the child to the dining area in case it gets loud from the drinking customers.
