Best Restaurants: The Golden Steer is pure Old Vegas, a place where the Rat Pack once dined, and it's one of the city's most historic restaurants. Steak, naturally, is its specialty. It's been around for over 50 years, and it's still worth a stop. Just off the Strip, not far from the world's biggest souvenir shop, the Golden Steer's neighborhood is a little more gritty than it used to be. But if you'd like a taste of what Vegas used to be like before mega resorts and celebrity chefs, this is the place to go.
Steakhouses: The atmosphere at the Golden Steer is as much a reason to have a meal here as the food. The name proudly proclaims the restaurant's specialty, and there is indeed a statue of a golden steer in front of the restaurant. Expect lots of burgundy-colored leather and an intimate dining room here, a little old-fashioned, but charming in an Old Vegas way. Look for menu items you haven't seen in a while, like Roquefort dressing made in-house. The Golden Steer has a signature garlic bread to go with its dishes, which isn't an item you see on many of the Strip's steakhouse menus. Cuts of beef offered are ribye, top sirloin, New York, filet, T-bone, and three sizes of prime rib. Other menu items include a selection of seafood.
Take Out: If you're in the market for a true, old-style Vegas experience, then visit Golden Steer. The city's oldest steakhouse, this legendary restaurant has hosted diners like Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Dean Martin since 1958. The atmosphere is truly vintage Vegas, and the place's longevity among the glittering giants of the Strip is a testament to the quality of the food!
