Aspens is a great ploace to meet with friends, has a great wine selection and nice bartenders. The food leaves a lot to be desired. The prices are comparable to a 5 star restaurant, but the inconsistent quality of preparation and attention to detail ruin the dining experience. My meal last night took almost an hour to prepare. When I... More

I went once and didn't go back. One, definitely not a kids place so leave them home lol two, the food in my opinion didn't taste any good for the price. The employees were very attentive and friendly

Aspens has a great atmosphere and wait staff. We usually order the salmon or shrimp but last time we were there we ordered steak and prime rib. Both were VERY disapointing. The steak was a poor cut and the end cut of the prime rib as rare as a center cut. I'd recommend staying with the salmon or seafood.

I recently had occasion to dine twice at Aspens at the Red Lion, with friends I hadn't seen in 36 years. It was a perfect, quiet place for old friends to catch up; the food was wonderful; the staff was polite, accommodating, pleasant - even funny! - and never rushed us, and were good at their job! It is not... More

We dined here lat night before playing casino games. It was good in many respects. I felt a little like the waitress did not really care as she spent more time tending to other tables and not doing little things like grinding fresh pepper onto my Caesar salad but she DID at the next table. The halibut fish and chips... More

Your in a casino so your food here is not something your going to write home to mom about. We had to send our salmon back twice to have them cook it right. Our server was very nice and apologetic which helped. The food here is what you would expect in a small town in a casino.

We couldn't be more excited about the overwhelmingly positive reception our new restaurant, Aspens, has enjoyed from both Elko residents and visitors to Northeastern Nevada!

Aspens' guests find a warm, relaxed atmosphere, perfect for an after-work cocktail or an intimate dinner. Accented by hardwood floors, fireplaces, and stands of preserved aspen trees, the new restaurant has a natural feel unique to dining in Northeastern Nevada. A private room for dinners, parties and other gatherings is also available in Aspens.

But perhaps most exciting is the new menu, mixing steakhouse favorites, seafood specialties and flavorful combinations. Delightful dishes include Crab Cakes, Black Angus Burgers, Prime Rib, Atlantic Salmon, Chipotle Southwest Shrimp, Baby Back Ribs, Crab Enchiladas and many more flavorful choices. Aspens proudly serves Certified Angus Beef and the freshest seafood available.

Our brand new Aspens Restaurant continues the commitment to excellence that the Elko Red Lion has always strived for, and we have no doubt it will become Elko's first choice for everything from holiday parties to more intimate get-togethers.

We know you're going to love Aspens!

Aspens received the 2014 Gold Award for Best Romantic Dinner and Best Appetizers in Elko!
