Everything in Las Vegas is big—big hotels, big lights, big shows and big cuts of meat! A classic night out in Vegas often begins (and if done right, ends) at a steakhouse. So it’s no surprise that there is quite literally a steakhouse in nearly every hotel and casino on the Strip! To help you select the perfect cut and accompanying cocktail, we’ve put together our list of the top seven Best Las Vegas Steakhouses to help you have a truly fabulous evening out.
Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres
You know you’ve walked into the right place to get a hearty cut of meat when there is an antler chandelier hanging at the entrance! Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres is themed like a hunting lodge and is accompanied with the smell of suckling pig in the air. You’ll feel cozy sitting next to their blazing central fire as you sip on a wine you selected from their menu that is almost bigger than their cuts! And as a restaurant that is 100% devoted to meat, you can rest assured your cut will be one to remember.
Andiamo Italian Steakhouse
Sometimes compromise is needed in choosing the perfect restaurant to dine out at. Andiamo Italian Steakhouse offers just that—offering menu items to please both the meat lover and the pasta lover! Located in Downtown Las Vegas, which is currently the trendiest place to dine out, Andiamo Italian Steakhouse gives diners the best bang for their buck in terms of portion size, quality and overall value. Choose from meat-centric classics, Italian dishes with handmade meatballs and delicious sides like their white truffle whipped potatoes.
Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar
Located at MGM Resort, this steakhouse is the sister restaurant to the original one in Chicago. Drawing inspiration from the Gilded Age, the restaurant is themed with immaculate French style and an insanely delicious menu. Hero items include their prime beef, truffle mac & cheese and loaded baked potatoes. They’ve also got a hidden parlour at the back for cocktail tastings and a more intimate setting.
Golden Steer Steakhouse
An oldie but a goodie, this classic steakhouse has been around since 1958. Still keeping to its old-school charm through vintage velvet seating and tuxedo wearing servers, the Golden Steer Steakhouse is a great spot to experience authentic Las Vegas dining. Don’t let the rundown strip mall location deceive you, their USDA prime, hand-tossed Caesar salads and jump shrimp cocktails are world-class!
CUT by Wolfgang Puck
This sleek and sophisticated restaurant is the epitome of a Vegas steakhouse. First, let’s talk about the wines. Their wine menu alone has over 500 to choose from—so don’t feel guilty if you need to sample a few different glasses. Then there’s the cuts. The Japanese Wagyu is their shining star, with the American Wagyu and the petite filet flown from Tasmania both coming in at a close second. All cuts are grilled over a charcoal fire and a 1200-degree broiler—we promise, your meat will never taste as good as it does here!
Another MGM Grand gem, but this one is just too good not to make the list. Creating a modern and masculine vibe through dark woods, polished leather and industrial metals, Craftsteak is a worthwhile splurge. They have a fully sustainable practice using only ingredients from family farms and artisanal producers, making their 24-hour braised short rib and A5 Japanese Wagyu all the more special. But their desserts are not to be forgotten, with their mouth-watering cinnamon brioche monkey bread giving their cuts a serious run for their money!
Located at the Wynn and offering lakeside seating, SW Steakhouse offers a one of a kind dining experience and is truly the swankiest steakhouse on the Strip. The perfect place for a special occasion, there are many indulgent items to splurge on, including their seafood towers, wedge salads, mac & cheese and huge (seriously, they are enormous) beef cuts. There is also the option to start to night off with caviar service to get your taste buds warmed up.
