If you love steakhouses, Las Vegas is the town for you. The profusion of steakhouses in Las Vegas, both on and off the Strip, presents some difficult decisions when you’re deciding on where to make a reservation. Looking for a steakhouse from a celebrity chef? Searching for Japanese, dry aged or grass fed beef? You’ll find all these options, plus many more.
Not surprisingly, the Las Vegas Strip lays claim to the majority of the city's top steakhouses, like CUT by Wolfgang Puck at the Venetian/Palazzo, Bazaar Meat at the SLS and SW Steakhouse at Wynn. However, there are several Strip-quality steakhouses found off-Strip as well.
Echo & Rig and Andiron, both in Summerlin, are comfortable, upscale neighborhood restaurants serving expertly prepared steaks and seafood. Smaller crowds, easy (and free) parking, and a non-smoking, non-gaming environment are added bonuses at these off-Strip restaurants.
It’s worth noting that any great steak dinner is likely to be an expensive meal, for some understandable reasons. In addition to providing sterling service, any good Vegas steakhouse serves the highest quality beef, along with a tempting array of sides, often including seafood. Dessert should never be overlooked (really, it’s almost mandatory for such a meal), and your beverage selection very well might include fine wines, cocktails and spirits. Plan for a splurge, and enjoy all the things a great Vegas steakhouse offers.
