Never would have believed this is inside Circus Circus. Fine service fine food and all grilled over oak inside the restaurant. Beef is aged in house had petite filet excellent cooked perfectly. Crabs legs small portion hot and served so very easy to eat. I would highly recommend this hidden gem.

We had a reservation for 8 people and were seated right away. I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, it is quite unique in this crazy city. Our waiter was so friendly and nice. The restaurant was out of the beer we ordered, so that was fixed right away and off they went to get our beer. We started off... More

I normally think of Circus Circus as a kids place. Having dinner at the steakhouse changed that. Good service better food and a good wine selection with a knowledgeable server what more do you want? We were impressed and wish it was closer to home. Don't miss

The last time we were here we had such a great meal and were expecting the same this time. They definitely "LOOK" like fine dining with linen, lighting and ambience. The food was absolutely terrible. My baked potato wasn't warm enough to melt the butter but it was big with all the toppings. The steak was ordered medium and it... More

Had the $19 prime rib special. The portion was good sized and tender but tasted like the stuff you get from Sam' Club, not what you expect from Circus Circus in Las Vegas. The lobster bisque was salty and redder than expected. I made a mistake in ordering vegetable tempura--it just didn't go with the meat. Service was rushed--cleaning the... More

It was in the Hotel and they advertise the $19 Prime Rib Dinner! I don't eat red meat so I figured I'd try their non beef dishes! The first night I had the Pasta Primavera that was good. My friend had the NY Strip and said it was one of the Best Steaks he's ever had! But a couple days... More

My wife and I split the prime rib special (12 oz) and it was good. We got the end cut since I like it a little more cooked and all the spice. The meat was good and plenty for the two of us. In fact I would argue if it was only 12 oz. Our's was cooked perfectly. We had... More

If you are in or stay at the Circus Circus, you can not go wrong eating a Prime Rib dinner which was very reasonable, $19.00 with soup or salad, rolls, and veggie. I ordered mine Rare and it was perfect, melt in your mouth, getting hungry right now thinking about it.

Best meal we've had all year! All the food was just perfect although we felt that the staff tried a bit too hard. The hostess pulled our table to the side so we could easily slide in. It was supposed to be a nice gesture but soon became awkward because my husband wanted to sit there & she was blocking... More
