Our family of 6 has this on the list for a nice dinner out. What is typical dress? Would we be out of place in dress casual? Are reservations accepted? Being in the hospitality industry I always like to call ahead incase of furniture arrangements need to be made.
James is giving you the best suggestion. The casinos are about two miles apart and the Fiesta is the better of the two.
I can't answer about reservations as we usually go early to beat the crowds. This is a totally casual café type place to eat. People are in shorts, capris', T-shirts etc. Also there are several areas In this place that can accommodate large parties where they have table inserts to make two smaller tables large and a few corner booths. Great family place.
I really couldn't recommend this for "a nice dinner out". It's a small, mainly locals casino with more of a coffee shop atmosphere. Definitely casual, no reses. A better choice might be the Fiesta Casino which has 3 restaurants and a buffet, Emery's, an Italian place just about 3 blocks up Water St from the Rainbow, or even Mary's diner- a 50's themed diner next door to the Rainbow in the Eldorado casino. All are casual.
Thank you all for your replies. Just to touch on it a bit, our family of 6 is all 21+,we brought our daughters and their boyfriends to celebrate their 21st birthdays for a week.( I was a young mom.)We did try to dine at Rainbow Club unfortunately that Friday @ 11am, they had a 45-60 min wait. We back tracked and went to the buffet at Fiesta and had 99* margaritas. Although very cheap,we were very disappointed that we were to hungry to wait. For $42 the Fiesta was very good, for $1 the Orleans was far better.
No one we saw was dressed up. I think there is separate entrance when you have kids with you that avoids the casino - maybe you can call to find where that is and ask about reservations. The prime rib nights are very popular with local families. We thought it a great find!
Rainbow Club/Casino is in the heart of "downtown Hooterville" a.k.a. "Hendertucky." Sorry, but these references are from a time a while ago when Henderson was a one horse town next to a chemical plant. Historic Water Street is part of that history but many of its icons are still entrenched in history. Suffice to say, ALL of your questions tell me you need to do some homework and then you'll realize Water Street/Rainbow Club/Casino is NOT the STRIP, perhaps closer to the laid back atmosphere in downtown Vegas. Despite Henderson's roots, the area referred to as "Green Valley" (also Henderson) is more suburban, comparably modernized, including upscale Green Valley Ranch Station Casino/Spa/Hotel, where dining options are closer to Strip pricing and venue. I'm sorry I do not mean to be rude but many readers have probably surmised your perception of "The Strip" as representative of all of southern Nevada - far from it - and far from Plainfield, Illinois!
