    Planning on enjoying what maybe my first and last meal at Peppermill. Hope not but plan on it's demise. So I plan on a what I think is my
    first and probably last meal there. I have enjoyed the fireside bar several times with a pretty lady though. Memories !!
    What would you guys strongly suggest? What is their most famous meal?

    Thanks I plan on 5 PM meal before a show at the Riveria at 7 PM.

    The Peppermill is going nowhere.

    The owners, new ones, say they aren't going anywhere but...

    On one hand they will make out like bandits with the conventioneers as food prices inside the convention center are ridiculous and options are few. I've worked several shows there and haven't been impressed. On the other hand they couldn't handle huge crowds anyway.

    I really enjoy the Peppermill. One of my favorite places to eat and watch life. I do indeed hope it stays.

    I have never been to the Peppermill when the sun was up (typically have eaten between 3-6 AM, after a Wynn (or in the past Stardust) session). Expect everything to be large portions, a few dollars more than you typically pay for something, and typically good or very good.

    I'm usually in the mood for pancakes or French toast before going to bed, and I really like both of these offerings at the Peppermill. Their hash browns are large and delicious.

    The burger is good, but I wouldn't call it their best offering by any means. It will take a large hungry group to knock out some of their extremely large appetizers, such as their nachos or fruit platter. Their salads could be eaten over the course of two or three settings. Their pasta dishes are pretty good as well, and enormous.

    Bottom line, bring a good appetite and you should be good regardless of what you get. Service is sometimes slow at times, so give yourself enough time to catch your show.

    Hope this helps.

    The owners of Peppermill said that they are not selling.

    Like Sonya said, biscuits and gravy . . . the BOMB!!!!!

    What show are you seeing? Saw Forever Motor City at Riviera and really enjoyed it. Would go again if I was in town before it closes.

    I was thinking the same for this trip - I will get there. I might even make it to the Riviera - lots of memories there too!

    If I recall, the "new" owners were former minority owners of the property and took it over from the estate of the majority owner. The now-100% owner is one of the guys who's been involved with it since the beginning and keeps saying that it's staying open. I imagine they'll cash out eventually, but I doubt it'll be any time soon.

    Not to mention, staying in it for the long haul is the smart play. I haven't been in there recently, but from everything I hear (including on this board), the place still does good business, despite it being surrounded by a whole lot of nothing. When (I refuse to say "if") the Resorts World site gets going, it might in turn spur something on the New Frontier site, and if that land will be worth a fortune. If there's any time to cash out, it'd be then. And if not, then they can keep operating a profitable, well-established restaurant.

    I have no idea. I'm usually too drunk when the bill arrives after finishing a Scorpion. :haha:

    It's a good value, around $20.

    Do they still have 9/6 jacks or better at the bar? I think I read that somewhere before but it was a while ago
