There are plenty of expensive steak houses in Vegas. The Capital Grill
is in the Fashion Show Mall directly across from Wynn Las Vegas,
Delmonicos at the Venetian, Smith and Wollensky is across Las Vegas
Blvd from the Monte Carlo (just north of the MGM Grand Hotel, Morton's
at Flamingo and Paradise Rd., (near Terrible's Hotel and Casino) etc.
But, for a group of guys, you may want to go for go the moderate price
steak houses. You'll find them in the moderate price hotels Off-Strip.
In other words, just about every hotel has a steak house, but if it's a
higher end hotel, the steak house is higher end. If it's a moderate
price hotel Off-Strip, the you'll pay half the price or more for a
In other words, at a moderate hotel, you'll be eating at one of the
moderate hotels' better restaurants. Meaning, to avoid the chance of
getting a tough steak, you'll want to stay away from ordering a steak
in a casino coffee shop or any hotel's more inexpensive reasturants.
"The Prime Rib Loft" ($25-$30 range) at The Orleans Hotel and Casino
gets consistently good reviews, as well as the prime rib restaurant at
South Point Hotel and Casino and the steak house at the Silverton Hotel
The Orleans is an easy cab ride of 1.5 miles from The Strip @ the
corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Tropicana. Or, as mentioned above, take
the shuttle from "Bill's" casino @ the corner of Las Vegas Blvd and
east Flamingo Rd. However, I'd recommend renting a car. Driving in
Vegas is fun and opens up all kinds of options; go where you want,
whenever, and do it fast and and easy with free valet parking (tip $2
when you pick-up the car) at every hotel. (with some exceptions
Personally, what I'd do is go to The Bootlegger rstaurant, which is
right off Las Vegas Blvd about five miles south from Mandalay Bay and
on the edge of the outlet shopping center (and right at the Blue
Diamond Rd. exit off Las Vegas Blvd leading to the Silverton Hotel and
The Bootlegger has great "Old Vegas" atmosphere and great Italian food
and for a very reasonable price. I can't go more than a few days
without pasta, and a good steak with a plate of linguine is making me
hungry just thinking about it.
Also, try Casa Di Amore restaurant on the north side of Tropicana (a
few miles east on Tropcana from the corner of Las Vegas Blvd) for a
similar "Old Vegas" experience with great food.
