      HOW ABOUT THE CAPITAL GRILL? Just joking

      Actually forget Capital Grill and major chains in general. I've had my best steakhouse meals at StripSteak.

      1. Austin's inside the Texas Station Casino has been a favorite of ours. It is well off the strip (Rancho and Lake Mead Blvd). Nice cuts of beef, well prepared and reasonably priced.

        1. Personally I think Prime probably serves the highest quality of beef in town and the ambiance is either really romantic or really stuffy depending on where you sit. Although I've heard that Carnevino and Cut are raising the bar on the quality - never eaten at either.

          However, I think Craftsteak is the best steakhouse in town food-wise.

          1. Smith & Wollensky is nice but my favorite is Capital Grille. not sure why others don't like it. They have a Kona Rub that is wonderful on everything but especially their bone-in ribeye. It's my favorite steak and my favorite steakhouse in the entire country. Some don't like it because they prefer they steaks charred without rubs on them -- personal preference. However, every single person whom I've ever taken to CapGrille has LOVED the Kona Rub. It doesn't sound that good (coffee, brown sugar, shallots) but it's indulgent on the steak. I wouldn't have tried it but for the waiter's recommendation and now it's what I get every time I go back there.

            Cap Grille is one of my favorite steakhouses in the country. It's as good as Coerpers in Milwaukee or Mastros in Phx-Scottsdale. I can't speak much about the local favorites but Cap Grille far exceeds any of the other options in my humble opinion.
