The Steak House has recently been named Top Las Vegas Steak House by Zagat. The Steak House has been thrilling diners with it’s top grade meats served by a friendly, gracious staff for over 29 years. The Steak House also features a glass enclosed dry aging locker. Top grade Midwestern beef is aged for 21 days at 37 degrees Fahrenheit & 85 percent relative humidity. This process tenderizes the meat & gives it a distinct flavor, which is further enhanced by preparing the beef over an open-hearth mesquite charcoal broiler. Once inside the dining room, you will feel right at home. Rural-themed paintings adorn the green walls. The room is rich with dark woods, diamond tufted red leather booths, creating a cozy den-like ambience. Dinners include fresh baked breads, choice of our famous black bean soup or house salad plus a Chef's fresh vegetable & choice of garlic mashed potato, baked potato, or wild rice blend.

    This restaurant is very out of place for the hotel it is in. We have never been disappointed in either the food or the service here. Price for what you get is slightly less than other high end steak houses in Vegas. Overall, this is still one of our favorite places to eat at.

    This restaurant is heavily advertised as being one of the best steak houses in Las Vegas. I was absolutely shocked at how bad the food was. The steaks had the flavor of shoe leather. In contrast, the service was 5 star and the decor was 5 star. This was the first time I had ever walked into the Circus Circus Hotel and the first and last time I will ever go to this steak house. It is really too bad. We had looked forward to going based on the reviews. We bought the false advertizing hook line and sinker.

    THE Steakhouse is an excellent place to eat. The food is spectacular. The other nice thing is that the price includes a soup & salad as well as a potato, where most restaurants in Las Vegas are a lot more expensive and make you order each item ala carte. This is my 2nd time eating here. It's a little further down the strip from heart of everything, but well worth the time & energy to get there!

    We come to Vegas at least once a year and always eat at the Steak House at Circus Circus! Steak us great and priced the same as Morton's and the other high end Vegas places, but your salad, potato and vegetable comes with it instead of a la carte. Great food and service and priced fairly

    This place is better than any steakhouse on the Vegas strip. Service was fabulous and the food was beyond outstanding. I think some people may shy away from the Steakhouse because it is located in Circus Circus. Please, don't let that stop you. This place is a hidden gem!

    This is my third time to the Circus Circus Steakhouse. Every time I go I have a terrific experience. For this meal, I ordered the large filet - I asked for a little pink and it was cooked perfectly! The garlic mashed potatoes are an excellent side. They have a really good selections of desserts too. It's a strange place for a nice steakhouse, but it's a find!

    I've been going to this restaurant for years, and it's always been great and one of my favorite; till now. The steak seems like it got smaller, they over cooked my rib eye steak. Very disappointed! I don't think, I'll be coming back anytime soon. The quality is not the same.

    As locals, THE Steakhouse has been a b-day destination for yrs. This yr so disappointing, we won't be back. One party is a vegetarian and yes we understand it's a steakhouse but also a b-day tradition so we don't expect much accomodation. Last year was stellar service/dining, when informed about the veg status, server told us not to worry, the chef would handle it. Along with steak, we were presented with a HUGE, lovely plate w/EVERY a la carte veggie. When the bill came, the plate was comped! We were surprised and grateful. This yr, we were flatly informed we could have a potato and asparagus. Server was blah, inattentive, interrupted us to ask if we'd be paying by credit, very rude. Steak was poorly cooked. Mgr was blase at our exit also

    I visit Vegas every few years in order to see whats new. I NEVER miss going to THE Steakhouse! Consistently excellent food, a decent wine list at reasonable prices and top notch service. It also looks like the company is updating the Circus Circus Casino, its wasn't quite the dump I remembered from a few years ago. But seriously, if you're a foodie like me then this is a "real" restaurant in a town that has an excessive amount of over-hyped, underwhelming restaurants, this is the real deal. The prices are reasonable (by Vegas standards) and the food does not take a backseat to any of the better known strip restaurants.

    After 13 years living here I finally tried THE Steakhouse inside Circus Circus. Now I'm a bit of a foodie and have been to my share of high-end and super-high-end restaurants, so I couldn't help but compare. First off, you will not be disappointed! The steaks were cooked over an intense wood-fired grill (which you can see as you walk in), the service was exquisite and the decor is beautiful, dark wood paneling, soft lighting and old books and paintings. LOVED it! As high-end places go, the prices were quite reasonable, especially compared to other steakhouses where you must pay for the steak, sides and salad separately, here it's all included. I will definitely be back!

    We were given this recommendation by friends and were not disappointed. From the beginning, everything was done right, and as you'd expect. Our waiter Mitch was able and helpful, and the food was delicious. We've paid more, but have not had as great a meal as we had at THE Steak House. It's definitely on our go back list.

    Always a must stop on my trips to vegas. Took a friend for their first time to steakhouse. He loves steak and said it was the best he ever had. There are steakhouses that charge more but none better. Large portions and cooked perfectly. Service was a 10. Always there when needed but not hovering around to rush you. Most of the waiters have been there for years. People look at me funny when I tell them it is inside Circus Circus. I usually stay at MGM or Mirage, but this place is worth the taxi fare for a great meal. I have eaten at so called famous chef restaurants on the strip that don't hold a candle to this place.

    I had heard a lot of good things about THE Steakhouse so I was looking forward to dining there. First, the restaurant itself is threadbare and the decor hasn't been updated in decades. Second, the service is slow and generally impolite. Third, the selection is extremely limited with almost no appetizers. I ordered the bone in ribeye which is $55 so u was expecting a lot. About thirty minutes later the waiter showed up with one of the worst steaks I have ever encountered. The steak was filled with hard grizzle and devoid of flavor. I don't know where they found a ribeye that bland and tough. After about another thirty minutes I was able to get the waiters attention that I couldn't eat the steak. Overall, a miserable place.

    If I could just get through it with room for dessert... I've been there 5-6 times this year, and it's just the best steak I've had, every time. I can literally push my knife across the steak and have it sink through it... paired with a nice bottle of Berenger Knight's Valley, the petite fillet is just fantastic. I hear the rest of the menu is good too, but until they make my steak less-than-perfect, I may never know! :)
