Description (taken from the menu):
Reuben: This is a definite Tide Specialty! Corned beef and sauerkraut mixed with our homemade Russian Aoli dressing served on rye bread with melted Swiss cheese.

Sandwich presentation:
The sandwich was cut diagonally and served crust-to-crust on a china plate, next to a small bowl or crock of potato salad. The sandwich had a slice of Swiss on the bottom slice of rye, followed by corned beef, and then sauerkraut missed with Russian dressing. There was another slice of Swiss just below the top slice of bread.

Reuben Ruminations:

: The Flowing Tide Pub is in a strip mall on the south side of Reno. For the lunchtime crowd on this day, it was pretty busy. There were televisions over in the bar area, and the restaurant didn't have a lot of sound insulation so it was rather loud but not jarring. The pub has a marine atmosphere with fake portholes on the wall, sailboats, etc. The Reuben sandwich was very good. The corned beef was very tasty, and the cheese was also notable. The bottom slice of bread was pretty soggy, probably because the sandwich was served on a china plate. Even though the place was busy, our server was very prompt, bringing out the sandwich in only 10 minutes. She was attentive, but not intrusive. I ordered the potato salad with my Reuben, and it was good. The "Russian Aoli" dressing was good--it wasn't pungent, and it fit into the overall sandwich taste very well. I definitely recommend stopping here for a Reuben if you are on the south side of Reno. ()
