Going to Vegas in couple of weeks, need to decide among Morton's Steakhouse, Smith & Wollensky or Lawry's....

Any suggestions

    My absolute favorite is N9ne at the Palms.

      N9ne was the bomb!

        Really? Why those 3 just out curiosity? I would rather choose between Craftsteak, Stripsteak, or N9ne - and choose in that order as well. It just seems that you can eat at Morton's in just about any large city in the US and S&W is not far behind. Lawry's would only be in the equation if you were looking for prime rib since most steakhouses in Vegas do not offer that.

        But if you are bent on those 3, then I would choose S&W.

          My friend is the one who chose those 3, she is not too familiar with what Vegas has to offer... but we are open to any suggestions

            my order - n9ne, delmonico's, stripsteak, craftsteak, prime....of the "major" steakhouses, i've yet to hit del frisco and SW...personally i found smith wollensky to be one of the worst steakhouses i've ever been to - morton's is ok and i've yet to hitlawry's...though i've been in los angeles ...oh yeah...and i still need to hit capital grille...i believe that's a steakhouse.

              I went to Del Frisco's for a bachelor party a while back. I wasn't that impressed. We had the private room in the back and the service and food was only about average for that level steakhouse. We weren't even loud or drunk, everyone was sober before dinner and we averaged maybe half a bottle between all of us.

              I got into a bit of an argument over my rib eye steak with the server. I had specified rare to blue if possible. It came out more medium rare. Furthermore the cut was more like a NY strip. I didn't want to raise too much of a fuss due to the large party but the server was being condescending telling me that it was the cut closer to the NY strip and still considered a rib eye, that they had people asking about that all the time but it was still a rib eye. His whole attitude was shouldn't have I known better than to question the cut. I wouldn't go back.

              NO !!! n9ne and stripsteak are "hip" places...craftsteak might also be in that category...prime has a feeling of being in a high end restaurant but i wore jeans and a nice shirt. delmonico's...last time i was there i wore a suit but it was only because i was at a biz affair just before the meal.

                Yeah, I've worn nice jeans to N9NE more than once and am going to wear nice jeans to Craftsteak tomorrow night. I got a little dressier for Delmonico but we did see a couple of people in shorts which was very inappropriate. I think business casual works for most places.

                Lawrys is not a steakhouse. There is a reason why it is called Lawrys the Prime Rib. The only steak is a 20 ounce rib eye. Here is the link to the menu at the Las Vegas location. http://www.lawrysonline.com/theprimer...

                  The steakhouse at Circus Circus,dingy hotel but consistently rated the best Steakhouse in Vegas

                    This should have an asterisk next to it. It's consistently rated the best steakhouse by the RJ poll. The same poll that lists the best Mexican as Taco Bell and the best Italian as the Olive Garden.

                    I'll admit that I've never eaten there but I have heard that it's good. But, to say that it's the tops in Vegas has to be a gross over exaggeration. However, everyone is cetainly entitled to their opinion.
