A word from THE Steakhouse at Circus Circus - Las Vegas
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.

    My wife and I had dinner for our 20th anniversary (1989) at the Steakhouse and decided to go back for our 45th this past weekend. The food was exceptional along with the service and it will not take another 25years before we return. Thank you for making this special occasion very enjoyable.

    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! :)

    I'm am normally not enthralled with steak joints. Boring, boring, boring. But my meal here was very delicious without the silly pomp of the typical steak joints (which rarely deliver on food quality). The ambiance cannot be beat for being placed in such a garish casino. I highly recommend.

    Ate here with friends for Restaurant Week. While the meat itself was universally acknowledged as amazing, the rest of the meal -- salads, sides and dessert cart items -- had nothing to distinguish themselves and did not live up to the high bar of the steak itself. Coupled with the garish and inconvenient aspects of the hotel itself, not sure if there will be an encore in our future.

    I remember visiting Circus Circus Steakhouse 15 years ago and thinking it was out of this world. This week I got exactly the same steak, wine and service... but cuisine has moved on and cuisine in Vegas is now a totally different market. Look if you want a hunk of aged meat seared til it's black this is still great steak. But if you want the kind of subtle flavours and great tastes that you should now be getting for $150 per person then this place now looks completely out of date. Sorry but it's had it's time and has not moved on. Overall: disappointing.

    this is called THE Steakhouse; i had the worst porterhouse of my life, what more can i say. this is not a knock on the front, service, manager, bar, ambiance (although it is in Circus Circus..yuch). My wife ordered salmon, rare, which was just fine (if they can cook fish why not steak); it is a 50's timewarp restaurant. no glitz or glam here but do have red booths. now, THE STEAK...asked for very rare...came out medium well to well...ok, can make a mistake; sent back, then came out barely on the grill and ICE cold through out. No taste, NO flavor, and too tired to send back for a third time..get me out of here..this is a steakhouse..and if i wanted a cold steak i would have BLEU, a la francaise, which is not what i would have asked for. bad

    The Steakhouse at Circus Circus is the best in town, it's prices are also the most reasonable on the strip. The steaks are the best you will find anywhere. The Steak house has been there for 30 plus years and still maintains it's Old Las Vegas Strip décor. The service is tops and it is always a pleasure to eat there and introduce to diners, who have missed this gem.

This was my third visit and it won't be my last. The elegant setting and great food are never out of style. I made a note on my reservation about my friend's birthday and they wished her a happy birthday and made her feel special.

    We were totally blown away by our experience at The Steak House. First of all they have addressed every negative issue I saw on past reviews. As we walked through the door it was instantly obvious that this restaurant was far removed from the chaos, noise and mayhem from the rest of the resort. We were 30 minutes early for our reservation but the hostess seamlessly escorted us to one of only a couple of waiting tables. Our server was with us just as we sat down and became comfortable. He took our drink order, left menus, made sure we were comfortable and asked if we needed anything. The food is outstanding, filet and NY strip both. My favorite thing, a perfectly paced meal. Relaxed, not rushed, attentive but not bothersome, perfect.
