SW Steakhouse at the Wynn


Where to start with the SW Steakhouse located in the Wynn resort? Maybe you can start with the King Crab Soup, or the seafood sampler (shrimp, lobster tails, oysters, and enormous crab legs), shrimp cocktail, or the crab cakes. Enjoy a warm bread basket as you decide on your cut of meat for the evening, while being attended to by 5-star service professionals. During your meal, enjoy nightly shows that take place on the Lake of Dreams. Featured on Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate, the chili-rubbed double ribeye is a cut of meat you won’t want to forget. SW Steakhouse is a must-do for any steak lover visiting Las Vegas!

The Steak House at Circus Circus


Looking for a vintage atmosphere among the chaos on the strip? Look no further than THE Steak House at Circus Circus!

THE Steak House has been voted Best of Las Vegas for over 30 years and was named Zagat’s Top Steak House in Las Vegas in 2011! With mesquite-grilled steaks, prime rib, lobster, crab legs and lamb chops, you can enjoy your choice of land or sea in a traditional steakhouse setting.

Prime at the Bellagio

Tender at Luxor


With a comfortable atmosphere and an exciting menu, Tender is often overlooked by tourists. As the Luxor is on the south end of the strip, and a “themed” resort, it’s not always at the top of the list for a leisurely meal. But don’t let the location fool you – Tender has an impressive selection of both dry- and wet- aged steaks! From New Zealand organic and range-fed Angus filet mignon to Australian Wagyu ribeye to a signature Tender-ized “carpetbagger” filet and oyster, meat is king here in this pyramid.

Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas


Gordon Ramsay was able to open three restaurants in Las Vegas all within one single year. That being said, steak reigns supreme and Gordon Ramsay Steak offers a fun, bright ambiance to those who are looking for a thick cut of meat in a thoroughly British environment. In Paris. In Vegas. Try the triple-seared Japanese A5 Kobe, the roasted beef Wellington, lobster Wellington, or start with an appetizer of Kurobuta pork belly. Or maybe you’re a fan of Hell’s Kitchen? For a limited time, try the tasting menu for $145 per person, featuring an amuse bouche (Scotch egg), first course (heirloom tomato salad), second course (scallop risotto), third course (roasted beef Wellington), and a dessert course (Ramsay’s famous sticky toffee pudding).

Echo & Rig at Tivoli Village


What makes Echo & Rig worth the trek from the Las Vegas Strip? The emphasis on quality cuts of meat (with a butchery in the restaurant) cooked over red oak. Each steak is served with garlic chips, mushroom Rockefeller, and a choice of sauce. With skirt, flank, hanger, ribeye, bavette, filet, and New York strip, you will be able to mix and match with your favorite sauce. Choose between blue cheese, red wine demi, brandied mushroom, béarnaise, charred onion, horseradish cream, and lemon chimichurri. Not interested in beef? Try lamb porterhouse chops, grass-fed lasagna, barramundi, or free range duck. Take the trip to Tivoli Village, and you’ll see why locals call Echo & Rig one of the best steakhouses in Las Vegas.

Hugo’s Cellar at the Four Queens


Hugo’s Cellar is one of the most famous restaurants in downtown Las Vegas. Step into a time machine as you walk down the stairs to enter the cellar. A host in a tuxedo will greet you, and show you the way to your table. All women that enter the restaurant are greeted with a long-stemmed rose, and every salad is prepared tableside. Try the rack of lamb, beef wellington, or champion chateaubriand and lobster for two. When you visit Hugo’s Cellar, not only do you enjoy a great meal, but an experience.

Oscar’s Steakhouse at the Plaza


Named after former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman, this steakhouse is located on the second floor of the Plaza looking down upon the Freemont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas. Oscar’s is not quite the same restaurant as Prime or Hugo’s, as Oscar’s tagline is “Beef, Booze, Broads.” Don’t fool yourself, however. The food and the service is everything you would expect from a high-end Las Vegas steakhouse. Most people come to Oscar’s for aged steaks cooked over a 600-degree grill and the iconic glass dome that surrounds the dining room. Oscar’s is classic, and known to fans as the best steakhouse in Las Vegas.

This list might be overwhelming but all it shows is that Las Vegas has some of the best steakhouses in the world.  Quality, service, and atmosphere is unmatched!  There’s a best steakhouse in Las Vegas for even the pickiest patron, so visit Las Vegas and find yours today!
