The food is great,and the service friendly. If you want an intimate dinner this is not the place. Otherwise it's kind of fun to sit at a family style table and perhaps get to know fellow diners. It's the number one place to go if you're in Winnemucca and want to experience great Basque food.

This restaurant is busy for a reason; it's good. Friendly staff. The food is pretty straightforward fare but the fact everything is fresh and is cooked well sets the restaurant apart. Very good bacon!

We have stopped here every time we come to Winnemucca. Everything has been a "10" every visit. The people are super friendly and attentive right away, and at all the right times. I had the Chorizo Benedict with some house-made salsa, and we split a carafe of Mimosas. The OJ is fresh squeezed! We'll be back.

We were traveling to Southern Idaho to visit friends so we stopped in at the Griddle for breakfast. We got a seat tight away and the service was quick to greet us. The menu is extensive so we ordered our food and it came very quickly. Everything was delicious! It was so good we are now here for lunch on... More

My buddy and I travel to Reno about four times a year. We start home at 0500 so we don't stop to eat till we get to Winnemucca. We have been really disappointed eating at McDonalds and Burger King. They don't turn on the heat and the food is terrible. This time we stopped at "The Griddle". The first thing... More

Excellent all around. We stopped here twice on our road trip as we went through Winnemucca. Both times the service was excellent, food very good and very prompt. Large portions, varied menu and all the staff pleasant and friendly. Well managed - everyone busy but smiling. Thanks!

Just a couple of blocks from our hotel, we visited this restaurant for breakfast both on the way to Reno and on the way back. The food is delicious and plentiful. The biscuit and gravy was awesome and other members of our group enjoyed the eggs Benedict. Good service, too.

The food is good and the service is very good. Clean bathrooms. Prices are ok, a little less than IHOP. We have found the atmosphere very nice. This is a sit down restaurant, locally owned, not part of a chain, which, imo, makes the place much more relaxed and pleasant. We liked it.

We have eaten breakfast at the Griddle since the mid 70's. We take an annual drive to ski in Idaho, and always go through Winnemuca. We ate there again this year, and something has changed. It isn't nearly as good as it used to be. Perhaps there are new owners. The potatoes had a funny taste. I think the cooking... More
