Non-Casino/Strip Restaurants in Vegas?

With family in Vegas, I come to visit a lot but have not ventured much off the strip. Can someone suggest restaurants around the area (Summerlin and anywhere else not on the strip)? The more economically friendly, the better.

        For old-school red sauce Italian, instead of Battista's, I'd do either Bootleggers or Carluccio's Tivoli Gardens. Bootleggers gets more raves on here (and it's open 24/7!), but I have a soft spot for the spectacular time warp that is Carluccio's. The only place that is as old-school over-the-top Las Vegas is the Peppermill. And of course, in case you haven't been, Peppermill is very much worth a visit even though it is on the Strip.

      2. We went out to Red Rock Canyon and stopped at Chicago Brewing Company on the way for lunch. Good beer and food, not too spendy.

        Also had decent Thai at Krung Siam, on Spring Mountain Road
