A great place to have unique dishes. I would suggest asking the host/hostess what they recommend as we've done that every time we are there and we're not disappointed!

Culinary Dropout is a buzzy, fun place with a great outdoor terrace that's perfect for warm weather lunches. Crowd is what you'd expect of the Hard Rock--young and upwardly mobile. Great salads and small plates as well as sandwiches, limited choice of entrees, this is a gastropub with good beers. I took three friends who had never been, and they all loved it. Our waiter Kerry was excellent.

Wonderful food and drinks. Our waiter was in training and Matt was right there making sure he knew what he was doing and helped answer questions. The food was excellent. Had to send the mashed potatoes that came with the fried chicken back because they were cold. The second time they were still cold but Matt comped the pretzels and fondue cheese to make up for it. In all a great experience and I'll definitely come back! Highly recommend.

The staff, ambiance, and service were absolutely outstanding! Wonderful freshly made cocktails, but it was the food that really hit it out of the park! The food was simply creative and scrumptious! This place would be my weekly hangout if I lived in Vegas that food was that amazing! This place will definitely be my go to place the next time I am in town and it would be my gastronomic pleasure to recommend the Culinary Dropout to a friend or anyone else!

Fun place - great attentive and efficient waiter. Fabulous salad. Ribs awesome too. The easiest thing - french fries: they seemed a bit cold as if they were not freshly dropped in the fryer.

The music is very loud. The seating is strange on the low sofas as you don't reach the table very well if you sit there. The service was on but our waiter had a party of about 20 people that was demanding most of his attention. Good apitizers.

We left early and went somewhere else because the game was on and there were so many commercials and the tv was so loud we could hardly talk. We did not want to pay for a dinner where we had to watch commercials all night.
