GV Great Food & Friendly Service.
Ok folks, It's not often I go around filling out comment cards in restaurants and even less often make my opinion of them known in print, but I believe what's right is right, and what's wrong is wrong and people who care, have a right to know the truth.
I've been coming to Rae's, both the restaurant and the lounge, for more than 15+ years and that in itself should tell you something about the consistent quality of the food and service. Places like Rae's don't stay in business this long, for doing it all wrong!
But I can only share my own experience. Like the time a dear friend lost his Mom and was looking for an intimate restaurant to hold a private memorial luncheon in her honor. He went over to Rae's, and in less than 24 hours, the owner and chef put together a super buffet luncheon, and personally made sure everything was handled to a tee, so he didn't have to worry about anything during a most difficult time. To me, that's what taking care of people is all about...and what makes a restaurant special.
When my son played football for the Silverado Skyhawks, Rae's used to feed the entire team, for free, before all their home games. Say what you will, but this place has heart, not to mention great food, friendly service and down to earth prices on just about everything.
My personal favorites are the Steak & Eggs breakfast special, Prime Rib sandwich for lunch, and BBQ Chicken & Ribs for dinner..If you like appetizers, try the Chicken Fingers with a basket of chili-cheese fries...They are the best! Just like Raes...
You've never been at Rae's when Jose was working. You have never been at any bar when I'm working. I know who you are! You don't gamble. Feel free to stop and complain to the owner or manager. Unlike your bar, we know our customers and are responsible for our actions. Unlike you, we respect our players. Don't post that you wish you had my number. You have it or can get it easily. If you want to confront me face to face, you know my hours. But your too week for that. If you would like I can always meet you when your off work.
Food Great - Bartender HORRIFIC. Actually I feel a little guilty for giving the restaurant a bad rating because the food was great. The bartender that was hitting on my girlfriend and made lewd and vulgar comments to her when I was talking to the other people in our party was just unacceptable. This big piece of crap made comments to her that are just plain wrong. Luckily she waited until we got home to tell me what he said otherwise I would have made a scene and possibly ruined my business deal. She said his name was Jose and he gave her his phone number. She went to the ladies room and threw it away. I wish she would have kept it because I would have called the fat ass myself. How can a restaurant hire a guy that would jeopardize the establishment in this manner. I hope your boss reads this and fires your fat ass. Yes, you are a bug guy and you get everything that comes your way. I urge the owner or manager of this establishment to take this seriously. I will tell all of my friends to either not go there if we come back and that big oaf is there or I am sure we can spend our money (and lots of it) elsewhere. We love gambling, food and drinks....the Vegas lifestyle. What we don't need is unprofessional pieces of garbage like this. We will be back in 2 weeks. I recommend he not be there. Fat ass Jose. You are a loser. Go find a woman....or goat.
Great Food and in reference to other reviews.
I would like to start by saying the prices at Rae's are very fair and the portion is a large quantity. This is very few and far between with all the new fine dining in the valley now. It is nice to have these off the strip restaurants where the staff is willing to get to know your name and is always very friendly.
As far as the previous reviews I have to tend agree with the Satified Customer on 03/15/11. You did not post in your review anything of importance other than your hatred and bigotry towards someone. What you did is childish and is called SLANDER. Your lack of intelligence is reflected in your name calling and writing. You obviously at one time worked for this woman and enjoyed your job. What you probably didn't post is that you were fired or quit without notice due to some discrepancy or incident that you don't want anyone to know about.
I hope people take the time to give his restaurant a chance, the food is actually very good and I felt welcome when I walked in the door. Perhaps going forward when we are reviewing a restaurant we can review the food and service not your previous employer. BTW, my silverware was clean and not from Dennys and I have confimed that there was a large payout at this restaurant.
I am rather surprised by the views of those review ihave read. It seems that these review are peronal in nature and not reflective of the service received and quality of food served.
I was visiting Henderson for 3 weeks and came across Rae's by mistake. I personally ate their food and was more than satified with both quality and service.
I had the pleasure of meeting the owner and found her to be both pleasant and personable. We spoke and found her to be engaging, articulate and kind. I rather liked her.
I was so pleased with their food and service that I took 8 members of my Henderson family for dinner at Rae's.
Their was nothing but possitive comments to the food and service.
It's my feeling that the reviews one gives should be on the business and the services they provide and NOT make it personal.
I look forward in going back when next I return to Henderson and look forward to another conversation with it's propriator.
This is my personAL OPINION and pray it will be respected as such.
x employee. i worked here for a very short time this woman with the bad face job who ownes it is by far the worst person i ever met .she keeps saying this is fine dining well sorry crazy lady its not first of all fine dining is not located on pecos and wigwam and does not consist og paper napkins straws glassware that is chiped and from k-mart silverware stolen from dennys and a couple of fish tanks from walmart. and i cant understand why people would work for you the way you talk to your staff is discusting like the food you need to get a refund for the bad face job and buy yourself some class because you have none. same goes for the moose you have working at the bar yuk and your restruant smells very bad.

Owner claims biggest gaming 'Drop' in Vegas !.
The uptight bitch with the bad face job that owns this place continues to claim that she has the largest weekly gaming drop in the entire valley. YEAH RIGHT!
Living on the golf course across from Rae's, there is not a car in the lot between 11pm and 5am(when she gets to the venue after watching the cameras for 2 hours, 'Think about it'), week or weekend.
She claims that she doesn't need the business. After finally meeting 'her', however unexpected and unwanting it was, I can see why so many people will not go there anymore and moved up the street to the Gin Mill!
Unless she is feeding her machines on a huge level herself, seeing the lack of traffic daily into this sh*t hole, there is no way they are in the black. It's a shame too because the bartenders are as good as they come.
Tommy or D. Rocker, please buy out this arrogant bitch and create Tommy's East Side.
