Fantastic steakhouse. Old school charm with great service and wonderful food. Petite fillet with crab legs was amazing. Best value quality steakhouse on the strip. Don’t let the Circus Circus location put you off. This place is definitely worth the trip.

Fabulous....there 29 years ago when we got married in LV and back again, just as we remembered it! Fabulous food and service! Also several of the same staff as back then....that says something about how great it truly is! Don't miss this great LV experience for a great meal, wine, food, and ambience!

This is a wonderful place. The food is delicious and the ambiance is great. It’s like stepping back in time. Our waiter wasn’t that great, not very attentive but it did not discourage us from wanting to come back.

The steakhouse truly is a diamond in the rough! Ambiance was amazing after walking through the front door you were transferred to old vegas. The aroma of wood burning and seared meat was delicious, the meat ageing locker was beautiful then you are walked by the chefs on a pedastal like Roman gods cooking. Michael our server was amazing and made the night twice as special just by his demeanor and attentiveness. Portion were huge and not too pricey. I highly recommend you try this place at least once!

Really cool, old school Vegas vibe. Waiter had worked there for over 30 years (Mike?). He was awesome. Food was excellent. Don’t be scared off by the fact that it’s in Circus Circus, which is a dump.

Was anticipating this meal for a few years. We couldn't make it our last trip to Vegas and were very happy we could make it this time.

We enjoyed everything except for the smoke. My wife (and later on myself) were so affected that we couldn't finish our meal. We were quite close to the open area where they cooked the steaks (cooked over an open wood/charcoal fire)

The food, service, everything else was spot on - what I would expect for the price.

Might have been a fluke - who knows. Would I go back? Definitely.

The service was friendly and top notch. The black bean soup is literally one of the best I have ever eaten. The filet was a decent cut and cooked just the way I wanted it on the first try. (You'd be amazed how many steakhouses can't cook a medium steak right!) When I read that they had a mesquite grill, I was looking forward to that taste in the steak, but there was literally zero flavor, not even salt! I was told to ask for the mesquite flavor next time. The dessert menu was dull, however, so we passed. I will give this place one more shot because the service was impeccable.

Enjoyed the apps, drinks, sides, steaks and desserts. Nothing stands out as exceptional, but it was a nice steak dinner in a old-school steakhouse environment at a reasonable (contextually) price. Would definitely come here again.

 (San Antonio)·Dined on February 11, 2018

In a city full of cookie cutter steakhouses and restaurants with a Celebrity name attached to it, this place is a true diamond in the rough. First of all the service is outstanding and very personable, you are addressed by name ( I celebrated my wife’s birthday here). It has a very relaxing ambiance to it and has a motiff that is vintage an classy at the same time, almost old mob era feel to it. All the meat is dry aged and mesquite grilled to tender perfection and the portions are huge. My wife and I were made to feel right at home and she was even given a complementary desert for our special occasion. If you want a break from all bright lights and noise this place is worth the trip to the “rougher” side of the strip. This place is probably more popular to locals than to tourists, but it’s worth the trip if your visiting. You can eat at Gordon Ramsey’s or Emirils place and pay for a name that is not even touching your food, or you can go to this quiet gem and get a relaxing atmosphere and killer food at a better price...and you won’t be treated like just a number.

We had a perfect experience in every way at The Steak House. Dark green walls with wood paneling, perfect lighting, comfortable chairs and large tables with white tablecloths. We (4) were seated in a corner and after we ordered our cocktails we were left alone to relax and enjoy them and good company. I can’t remember the last time I experienced such perfect service. Our waiter was awesome. The food was amazing. Classic steak house menu. We were allowed enough time to enjoy our meal without feeling rushed. Yes, it was expensive, but so worth every penny. A quiet little corner to enjoy a beautiful meal in Las Vegas? This is your place. I would recommend for a romantic evening or special occasion, you know, like life!

My wife and I have been planning to have dinner with the Steak House at Circus Circus for awhile. She has experienced dinner before and has had nothing but praise for every aspect.
So, I've been looking forward to my experience.
I was not disappointed!!!!
Thanks for a very nice and enjoyable dinner.
We will be back when in the area.

地元でも美味しいと有名なお店のようです。ひとり旅でサーカスサーカスに宿泊し、夕食で利用しました。1人での利用でしたが、入るのにはちょっと敷居が高いくらい落ち着いたお店です。フィレステーキを食べましたが、最高でした。今まで赤みの多く残った肉が得意ではなかったですが、残さず食べれるくらい柔らかく美味しかったです。サービスは日本並で良かったと思います。チップ込みで85ドルくらいでした。

 (Charleston)·Dined on February 3, 2018

This was my second trip to The Steakhouse and I was not disappointed. Service was on-point as usual, and as a local, I find the steaks here to be the best you can get on the Strip. My Porterhouse was cooked perfectly, and my fiance's Bone-In Ribeye was even better. The seasoning could have been a little better on both steaks, but the meat itself was exceptional quality even compared to other high-end steakhouses on the Strip such as Prime and Cut. The price is very good for what you get. Would definitely recommend a trip here if you haven't been yet even if Circus Circus is a little out of the way.

Porterhouse and ribeye cuts were very tender, melt in your mouth delicious. The wood burning grill is located in the middle of the restraunt so you can watch the chef cut steaks off the huge prime rib and cook all the meats. Quite interesting.

As all the reviews said, ignore that it is in Circus Circus! It is worth the bus ride or taxi to get there. The kind of classic steakhouse I remember as a kid in Chicago. Red "leather" booths and chairs, dark wood. The matre'd and server were welcoming and accommodating. Love that the music was Frank Sinatra! I had the fillet which was cooked just right (Med rare). Yes, pricey, but what good steak places aren't? And your meal is inclusive of the house salad, potato and vegetable. The portions are large (the house salad, potatoes, etc). Asparagus was the chefs vegetable. And my Cosmo was one of the best I've had. I would definitely go again.
