Great Seafood & Steak in Vegas for a B-Day Party?

Stuffy Jan 15, 2012 12:55 PM

Looking for some recs that will please everyone from the food adventurous to the narrow "meat & potatoes" guy.

Will be in Vegas on a Tuesday for my mothers 70th Birthday. We are staying on the strip, but have access to a car if need be. We will be a party of 6 people from 50 to 70 in age and are all fun loving and youthful.

She loves seafood and is a foodie, so anything fabulous or funkie would do for her. The problem comes in with my father who is a royal pain, picky eater. A steak and potatoes with no frills is his idea of the perfect meal. Ugh!

I'd like to treat my mom to a great meal, probably seafood, but must take into consideration the entire party. Please no Italian. Don't want to have to mortgage my home, but am willing to splurge. Let's hear it from all you great Chowhounds.

Thanks, Stephie

    I think The Golden Steer qualifies as both fabulous and funky.

      How about The Barrymore? It has a lot of seafood on the menu, steak for the old man, and is definitely fabulous and funky:

        Joe's Stone Crab and Steaks has both, although the seafood portion focuses most specifically on Stone Crabs - not that that is the only seafood that they have, just that that is what they are famous for. The steaks are excellent, and it is very good for meat and potatoes type people. It is not inexpensive, but it is also a bit under the highest end steak houses like Cut or Craft or Carnevino. It is at the Forum Shoppes at Caesar's

          I'm a big fan of Mastros Ocean Club inside City Centre. Both steaks and seafood are very good.
