In or near Red Rock hotel
Going to Vegas any suggestions for lunch or dinner at walking distance? Thanks
There is not that many restaurants walking distance to the hotel. Across the street is the Best Buy/ Borders shopping center which has Islands (burgers), Agave (mexican), BJ's Brewery, Pei Wei (pseudo chinese), Vintner Grill (but that a longer walk).
At the corner of Charleston and Rampart you have more choices (Mimi's cafe, PF Changs, Melting pot, Hannah's (pan asian), but I would not think it was walkable to eat and walk back. It is about 3 miles each way.
The fish sandwich from Tides was one of the BEST fish sandwiches I have had anywhere. Was delicious and perfectly cooked (99% sure it was grouper). BUT, that was literally the best thing I had to eat for the entire weekend from 3 restaurants. Rosemary's is not that far away...Do yourself a favor and take a cab there. That is, without question, you best best...BAR NONE!
I second or third the Vintner Grill...ate there for the 1st time last week...everything from the service, the food and the decor was wonderful!
I loved it! I am still remembering my meal of a half order of crispy calamari w/ a lemon curry aioli dipping sauce...a pumpkin gnocchi w/ toasted hazelnuts, prosciutto and a balsamic reduction... and the exquisite dessert of humboldt fog cheese w/ a Voseges truffle paired w/ a dried cherry broiche and a puddle of a rich dark costa rican chocolate ...wow!
Within walking distance pretty much means in the resort or across the street in the shopping center. There is a lot of mediocrity at the restaurants in RRC but I really wouldn't call anything bad ( there are a few on here with differing opinions though ).
In the resort I can suggest Salt Lick for lunch. I really enjoy their BBQ and the pulled pork sandwich is pretty tasty as well. The brisket and sausage are good also.
Terra Rossa isn't bad either. They have a white wine by the glass that's great - I'm struggling with the name/varietal. Starts with an H, I want to say ... The pizza is extremely thin crust, napoli style, the margherita is good. For the pastas I like the agnolotti and the panzerotti. They also give you a little crudite platter with dinner chock full of artichokes, peppers, mushrooms, cheeses, etc.
T-Bones can be either really good or bordering on bad. I don't know how they let their signature steakhouse get that way but so be it. It's got a great atmosphere with a piano player on most nights. They've got a good wine selection as well. I've eaten there on many an occasion and find it to be perfectly acceptable on most nights ( a little pricey, though ).
Across the street you've got Agave, Islands, Olive Garden, Pei Wei and BJ's. Agave has great chips & salsa and can make a mean margarita but I wouldn't eat dinner there. Just my opinion. Islands is a low end burger joint - nothing special at all. BJ's I'm actually partial to. I used to live about two blocks from Red Rock Casino and would spend a lot of time around that area. BJ's is a good alternative if you don't mind the fact that it's a chain. Their "together at last" appetizer with spinach/artichoke dip and bruschetta all in one is really good as well as the avocado egg rolls. Their pizzas are deep dish if you like that and they have a couple good sandwiches - the beef dip and the BBQ beef are good. Their pastas are decent for a chain as well.
Nothing really groundbreaking up that way save for Vintner Grill which I would be hesitant to walk to but it's definitely doable and, if you don't mind the walk, I would highly recommend.

Cab it to Rosemary's for lunch. Best food, service and value anywhere close. The 3-course prix fixe at $25 is a steal.
