Mavens Overview: The Steakhouse at Circus Circus
The Steakhouse at Circus Circus has won more Best Vegas Steakhouse honors than you could count on both your hands. Just like Hugo's Cellar at the Four Queens downtown, Circus Circus is a most unusual place to find a good Steakhouse. Circus Circus is more known for circus acts and scores of screaming little kids.
The Steakhouse serves some of the best aged prime beef in Vegas, nothing fancy, just well cooked prime grade beef, as Chef Robert O'Brien explains below.
Chef Robert O'Brien, who oversees all of the Circus Circus restaurants, said there is no secret to the success of the restaurant. "The food is simple and straightforward," he said. "People know that they're getting a thick marbled steak that is properly grilled on our open-hearth mesquite charcoal broiler.
The Internet Buzz is mostly favorable, although as noted previously, many are baffled by the location of the restaurant. If you want a great steak in a "Old School" Vegas restaurant, the Steakhouse at Circus Circus is the place for you.
Internet Buzz: The Steakhouse at Circus Circus
- Simply put.... What a really good steakhouse should be like! What I don't get is the location. Circus Circus is like the Dollar Store when compared to other casinos on the strip...Steaks started in the mid $20 range, but were HUGE... seriously, maybe 20+ ounces. Very relaxing and inviting atmosphere.
- The Steak House is fashioned after an English-style hunting lodge restaurant with red leather booths and dark wood.
- I have had the pleasure of eating at the best steakhouses of America in my past life and I have eaten at some of the best in Vegas. Gotta say, this is a close second to my all-time favorite, LG's in Palm Springs, but at 1/2 the price.
- We heard a lot of great things from the locals, so i thought we would hunt this place down in Circus Circus. Way in the back you find a nice little restaurant. Walking in, it was amazing because of the open fire area where the chef cooks the steak. After receiving a great variety bread assortment, we had the black bean soup as the first course and that was great.
- When my friend suggested dining here I thought she was crazy. My memories of the only time I had been in Circus Circus involves sticky floors and screaming children. I was very pleasantly surprised by the restaurant, however. Not only was the service excellent, but my feet didn't stick to the floor and there was not screaming involved. The food was exceptional. The steak was melt-in-your-mouth good and I highly recommend the chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert. They were huge!
- Service was attentive and not smothering, but a little on the clueless side. He didn't know where the oysters came from...All the other little details about the dinner were excellent, right down to their bread and butter. How great is that?
- The Steakhouse at Circus Circus is a very solid choice for a nice competently prepared and served steak dinner, especially if you want an old school experience. The food was reasonably priced and quite good. While everything is ala carte at many steakhouses, soup or salad, and one side is included in the price of the entree here. The New York cut I ordered was a nice piece of meat and was cooked a perfect medium rare on the rare side.
