My husband and I are locals here in Reno and love to dine out. We have tried nearly every steakhouse in the area and were excited to try Bimini, the new steakhouse at the Peppermill. We were terribly disappointed to say the least. We expected this to be a pricier meal, but were a little shocked by the $250 bill for the two of us. Even that would have been okay if it had been a great experience. It was not. The "ambiance" was non-existent (maybe equivalent to that of an Applebee’s), the quality of the food was slightly better than their coffee shop and the overall dining experience was lackluster. I could go on in detail about all the things we disliked, but instead I will just recommend what we feel is far and away the best dining experience in Reno, Harrah's Steakhouse. If Harrah's Steakhouse is a "10" (which it is in our book), then I would give Bimini is a 3 or 4.

The "Steak House" resturant located within Peppermill was very disappointing. We paid PREMIUM prices for typical average casino prepared food. The fish special (Halibut) which was described as "very fresh", (not previously frozen, $42.50) it sounded great so three out of 8 people ordered it. All three servings were tough, dry, disappointing. The people who ordered beef were also disappointed: the Filet, Ribeye and New York strip was not the melt in your mouth tender quality, over salted,(Lawrys season salt?) and the sauce served with the steak, (green peppercorn sauce which was a dark brown) tasted as if it came from a bottle of watered down BBQ sauce with a few peppercorns added to it. The "chef's starch" of garlic mashed potatoes were over salted as well. Veggies were ok- a bit overcooked. The prices on the wine menu were marked up considerably high. Opted to have a cocktail instead. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, but management resisted when one party guest complained about the tough dry halibut. They eventually took one halibut entre off the bill after the offer of free cocktails was refused as a way to compensate for the disappointing meal. Since we were a party of 8, an 18% tip was automatically added to our bill- which was came to $500.00. None of the 8 will EVER go back to The Steak House and pay premium prices for such average food. We all walked away feeling disappointed, overcharged.
