Suggestions for "affordable" steakhouse during boyz Vegas weekend please

My husband is planning a long weekend in Vegas with a number of his friends this January. All of them are in their mid 30s and employed, but there are 7 of them, and thus 7 opinions to consider. The foodies want to live it up with steak dinners; the less food focused are voting for buffet all the way.

My husband REALLY wants to go to craftsteak but its too expensive for some of the guys. He is reluctant to give up the steakhouse experience altogether, so I told him I'd pose the question here for alternative steakhouses that A) are on the strip, B) have other options besides steak for the more cost aware in the bunch and C) are high caliber.

I - and he - welcome your thoughts!

  1. I think N9NE at the Palms is what you are looking for. It's close to the strip and an easy cab ride. It has many other non-steak options. The food is quite good; maybe not at the level of Craftsteak, but only true foodies will appreciate a difference. The prices are high, but not Craftsteak high. Everyone will walk out full.

    1. What about Striphouse in Planet Hollywood? Went here for my bachelorette party and it was perfect - food was great and not crazy expensive and the atmosphere was super fun. I think this would be a perfect place for a bunch of guys.

      1. The Palm, a branch of the New York City steakhouse with some Italian dishes besides their steaks and chops.

        1. Stripsteak at the Mandalay Bay is a very good steakhouse, and you can get coupons at - $50 certificate for $20. I think there's a 70% off code floating around, so you could get a $50 gift certificate for $6. They also have deals on other high-end restaurants at the Mandalay Bay, like Mix.

            Thanks for all the suggestions. I read nice things about Stripsteak and surprisingly, about the Golden Nugget as well (???) - anyone know about Vics @ the Nugget?

              I wasn't really thrilled by the food at Vic's at the Nugget. However, I do highly recommend Triple George Grill--which has a totally old school Vegas downtown vibe. We went there with a really large party and the service and food were fantastic...and ridiculously affordable.

              Does anybody have details on this? How to use a code to buy a $50 Stripsteak gift certificate for $6?

                I'm not sure if the sale is still on, but if it is, try typing the word "SHARE" into the promotional code box at checkout. If you hit "apply" and "share" is no longer valid, it will warn you, so you won't be stuck paying full price.

                Dined at Stripsteak with 7 other gals for my bachelorette party last year. Let's say it was pretty expensive -- over $150/person. We tried a lot of dishes by sharing -- it was good but the price / quality ratio didn't work for me enough to go back.

              3. The Steak House at Circus Circus has been around for a very long time but still has good steaks and other choices. It's not at the top level of LV steak houses but neither are the prices.
