Hey everyone,

I'm headed to Vegas in the next couple weeks. Every casino has a steakhouse, which one is the best?

    i went to the steak house at the sahara and it was great. i am a cheap bastard and it fit my criteria. i ordered the king prime rib and recieved a pot roast sized slab of meat. very dark very early vegas feel, not the trendy over priced crap that vegas seems to have become. they are already getting all your money at the tables how about a decent meal and safe place to sleep without playing craps too!

      There are so many good ones to choose from. My favorite happens to be Prime (Bellagio); others will differ. I also have enjoyed Blackstone's (Monte Carlo), Circus Circus (use the separate entrance to avoid a serious loss of appetite before the meal), and Craftsteak.

        Craftsteak is that good? I recently read a review of it, well more of a story, but it was really funny. Here's the link, I'm curious if Mr. Black knows what he's talking about.

        What constitutes "best" to you? Like you say, there are so many and they vary quite a bit as to price, excellence of food, vibe, etc.

          I like a good piece of meat cooked to perfection, excellent service and side dishes that don't come across as an afterthought. I expect to pay, but don't like feeling like I've been robbed.

            I'm going to suggest Craftsteak at the MGM. I think it meets your criteria and you will feel your meal is worth it.

            I also like N9NE at the Palms quite a bit but I don't think the food is as good as at Craftsteak. Hipper, younger vibe though.

              I concur ( as always when it comes to CS ).

              You CANNOT GO WRONG at Craftsteak. It is so incredibly good. Make sure to have the foie gras ( best in town, IMO ) and the kobe tartare. I eat there as much as I can.

              Here is my take on the steak houses of Las Vegas. The upper tier Casinos generally have swankier plusher steak houses that have good alternatives for those that are not eating steak (Prime in Bellagio, Charlie Palmers in the Four Seasons, SW in the Wynn, N9ne in the Palms, Delmonico's in the Venetian, Craft Steak in the MGM to mention several). They are good and excessively expensive. There are the independent chain transplants such as Smith and Wollensky's, Capital Grill, Palm, Ruths Chris, Mortons and others. Needless to say, Las Vegas does not lack steak houses. There is something for everyone. Personally of the ones that I have been to (I have not been to Craft Steak in the MGM and it seems to be getting RAVE reviews.)

              I like The Steak House in the Circus Circus for true old Las Vegas experience along with one of the best steaks in town. Perfectly cooked quality Prime steak (I believe Dry Aged, but I could be wrong, which VERY FEW places in Las Vegas serve). As far as the transplant chains, I am partial to Capital Grill, although all other Capital Grills that I have eaten at (NYC, Philly, Chicago) have all been sub par, go figure! Beautiful setting across the street from the Wynn on the top floor of the Fashion Mall. Great service, great steaks, great atmosphere.

            I was there for a bachelor party last year - we enjoyed Nine at the Palms.
