Las Vegas steakhouse recommendations

The best steakhouse value in LV is the Pullman Grille in the Main Street Station Casino downtown. Great ambience, incredible food, unbeatable prices. I attend an annual tournament at Sam’s Town (well off the strip) and always make the trip to Pullman’s. The even have an old Pullman car inside the steakhouse that used to belong to Louisa May Alcott.

Strip Steak in Mandalay is kind of the opposite — one of the most overpriced restaurants I’ve ever seen… I don’t think there is a cut of meat under $70 on the menu.

I think Rao’s in Caesars is kind of overrated… I’ve been twice and was not blown away either time… maybe I was just ordering the wrong things.

A.J.’s Steakhouse in the Hard Rock = damn good.

SW steakhouse at the Wynn = even better than AJ’s Steakhouse. Our food was comped, so I didn’t pay attention to the prices but I think it was up there. Definitely worth it, though. Get the truffled creamed corn as a side. Absolutely incredible.

Lawry’s has the best Prime rib in the world. Its also very old school in a fun way. It’s not on the strip but its close by.

Circus Circus has a surprisingly good steakhouse.

Luxor Steakhouse was excellent. I also went to Smith & Wollensky, but I thought Luxor
was much better.

You HAVE to go to CarneVino in the new part of the Venetian. It’s a Mario Betalli restaurant. It is by far the best steak I have ever had in my life. The way it is set up is amazing. It has a variety of amazing starters (I recommend the lamb ragu). Steaks are aged in a private facility – never had a better meal in my life.

A family friend says that the best steak he’s ever had is at Robert’s Steak House. Never heard of it? That’s because it’s in the Penthouse Club on the West Side Highway. Not exactly the most family friendly place. He started the conversation with: “So, how do you and your parents feel about topless women?”
