Meet our New Executive Chef

September 9, 2022

Chef Nick BeesleyPlease join us in welcoming our new Executive Chef, Nicholas Beesley. 

In his role, Chef is in the creative inspiration behind the entire culinary operation at Silverton Hotel & Casino.

Chef Nick comes to us with a wealth of culinary experience; most recently from Aliante Hotel & Casino where he held the same role.  Prior to Aliante, Chef held leadership positions at JW Marriot Resort in Summerlin, Caesars Palace, and various other properties in the Midwest.

Culinary has been a passion of Chef Nick since his first job as a bagel baker at Bagel Café in Las Vegas. In fact, he likes to pop in the café frequently to taste some of his favorite recipes that has been served since the restaurant opened.

Chef Nick is also a huge Raiders fan and has seen them play in three different stadiums: Soldiers Field in Chicago, Coliseum in Oakland and here at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

One of his proudest moments?  When he was working at RAO’s restaurant, Chef Nick won a burger challenge at Caesars Palace against all the chefs at the resort.  His entry was the perfect Italian burger — a beef and veal burger with thick cut of fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted red pepper aioli and arugula, served with cherry peppers and kettle chips.  That same recipe was published in a cookbook from the owner the restaurant, called “RAO’s on the Grill with Frank Pellegrino Jr.”


Silverton Casino Hotel celebrates its Silver Anniversary in 2022, commemorating a quarter century in Las Vegas.  The local casino favorite offers 300 deluxe rooms and suites and world-class amenities all located within an upscale, contemporary luxury lodge-themed resort.  Silverton features 90,000 square feet of state-of-the-art gaming, including the most popular slot machines and table games.  An 117,000-gallon saltwater aquarium, home to thousands of sharks, stingrays and tropical fish, was voted “Best Attraction” in the Best of Las Vegas awards.

The resort is a culinary destination, featuring Mi Casa grill cantina, Su Casa sushi bar, Sundance Grill, WuHu Noodle, Shady Grove Lounge, Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge, Starbucks, and Johnny Rockets.  Twin Creeks is known as the premier Off-Strip steakhouse in Las Vegas.  The unique “Stakes are High” program at Twin Creeks Steakhouse gives diners a chance to roll dice to win a complimentary Creekstone Farms Tomahawk, the restaurant’s signature cut.
