The Dining Car is Tamarack's 24-hour coffee shop. The menu changes with time of day, so not all food items are available all the time. Keep an eye on the specials for tasty food at a good value. Summary Review: B


There's several pages to the menu, but keep in mind that heavier entrees are only available in the evenings, and the late-night menu has some variety, but is limited. There's also a all-you-can-eat soup & salad bar. We didn't have the soup, but our experience at Sully's makes us wish we had. I'm always a sucker for breakfast, and it was hot and tasty. Food Review: B


The open-air coffee shop has a comfortable feeling to it. Its not so large you feel like a stadium, but its no so small you need to introduce yourself to the people sitting nearby. Its set just off-and-behind the casino floor, so its a little separated. We could do with slightly more comfortable chairs. Atmosphere Review: B


Our server was pleasant and the food arrived quickly and correctly. It was effective, if not endearing. Service Review: B-


Fine food at a reasonable price always does well with us. You'll do great watching the Specials, also. And, if you're a soup & salad person, there's always room for another bowl... Value Review: B
