The 3,square-foot Roman-style pool — surrounded by cabanas, chaise lounges, and daybeds — is perfect for cooling off in the summer heat. And the Beer Garden's lawn games — think corn hole and ping pong — bring a smile no matter how you've done at the Blackjack table. A mile northeast, Harrah's Resort Atlantic City has also upped the stakes on dining with a slew of new restaurants.
Over-the-top milkshakes at AC Burger Co. Harrah's other big reveal is The Pool After Dark thepoolafterdark. The club's not new, but feels fresher than ever after a multi-million-dollar overhaul this past spring. Eye-popping graphic displays on massive LED walls, along with a bone-rattling sound system, make it as immersive as jumping in the club's namesake. Things get wilder at Bally's Atlantic City caesars. The summer-only Bally's Beach Bar is open for the season, and it's a nonstop outdoor party.
If supersized drinks are your vibe, there's a Hurricane that comes in a ounce take-home bucket. The Philadelphia-based super-chef opened a pair of new venues there in spring, and they're both worth a visit.
Named for a beloved seaside town in Ecuador, Olon olonrestaurant. Bright, bold ceviches are a signature, along with raw-fish tiraditos — that's Peruvian sashimi — like snapper and tuna. And at Okatshe okatsherestaurant. Don't miss the okonomiyaki savory pancakes fries with kewpie mayo, inspired by those over-the-top Japanese pancakes.
Also next to the bar is another set of eight. The bar itself also has another ten perched high. Within the sports book proper are another set of ten TVs, however they are often shared or used for horseracing.
Seating within the book is also sometimes sparse, as many seats are reserved for horseplayers. However in the two anterooms and at the bar there is a bit of seating, but often not enough to accommodate everyone. The ticket writers here are hit and miss. One gentleman in particular is one of the best in town. Check your tickets carefully. The bar has a nice selection of beers on tap and in bottles. Bartenders and cocktail waitresses are pleasant and efficient.
On the downside, William Hill does not give out drink tokes. If that is your reason for being in a sportsbook, this is the wrong place. A quick bite to eat can be a problem, as well. There is nothing in very near vicinity, but an Asian noodle restaurant is across the casino. On the second floor there a coffee shop and the Brew Brothers with good salads, sandwiches and the like for easy takeout. They also have a coffee bar next to the coffee shop if indeed all you want is some caffeine and a baked good.
What sets this book apart is the service. It is second to none anywhere in the state of Nevada. In fact, most businesses of any kind could take a lesson from the type of service you get at the Peppermill.
Besides the ticket writers all being pleasant, polite and knowledgeable, there always enough of them, up to ten on a football weekend. You might have to wait in line, but that is only because they have a lot of business. In the primary viewing area, there is one large screen and eighteen smaller screens. Seating can be a problem. Again, the reason is they have so much business.
In the bar area, there is a raised floor with good viewing. To rear of the main viewing area is another set of eight televisions. More are sometimes used, but those are primarily for their race business, which is also the best in Reno. At many of the seats are also individual televisions, so besides the view of the entire room, you can watch your own personal selection.
Drinks are given away easily, and the cocktail service is excellent. The bartenders at the sports bar are not always the nicest or most efficient, however. I would stick to the cocktail waitresses. The sports deli is nearby. There is some seating available here, but not the best, with a view of perhaps only one television. The sandwiches, pizzas, and baked good are of the usual high Peppermill quality.
