This restaurant was recommended by our son in law, and it didn't disappoint. We were with our great friends and normally we try to have one outstanding, special occasion meal on our travels with them, and we chose The Steak House. It turned into one of the highlights of our week long stay in Las Vegas. Service and food both outstanding. We all would highly recommend this place.

Every time I’m in Vegas I have to eat here at least once! The food is always fabulous and the meal is NOT ala carte like all the other steak houses. You will not be disappointed!

The food was really great, The only thing that could be better would be the music was a little to loud but I think it was because it was right above my head. Service was really great.

The steak was prepared well, but the prices do not justify the taste. The bread used as an appetizer is cheap, especially for the price of the meal. The service was the best part. The atmosphere was very smoky, most likely due to the meat being cooked in the center of the restaurant, which made it difficult to breathe at times. The dessert menu is unoriginal. Would have been great to see something unique on it!

A hidden gem in Circus Circus! The server was polite, attentive, and funny. The food was so delicious! I had the crab legs and my husband had the prime rib. Both amazing! Also try the lettuce wedge with bleu cheese. I would definitely return and would highly recommend!

Food was good! Service was not. Our waiter didn't return to our table till 20 minutes after food arrived. If our steaks had been done wrong we would have had to flag him down. Tip reflected service. Would find another steak house next time. Just O.K.

A tried and true authentic Vegas steakhouse with waiters who know how to treat you well. You will feel like you are the only people in the room the waiters care about as they are extremely attentive and do not rush you. The lighting is dim, but not so dim you can't see your food. Dressing for dinner requires being comfortable. When we dined there were people in casual attire and suits, with more people in jeans and button-down shirts. It's about comfort. Now, the food. The steaks are exquisite. We ordered a porterhouse to share, with the filet cut off for me. You can share the potato and salad too without extra cost, or do what we did, which is pay $20 to share but that provides me with my own potato and soup or salad option. We have dined here before and found that we couldn't eat all of the meat, so this is a good option for us. From soup and salad to our dessert, everything was perfection. The meat melted in our mouths and the seasoning was perfect. For dessert, we had something like bananas foster in a rum sauce, and that was excellent. When we come to Vegas, we always dine here, and that won't change anytime soon.

AMAZING FOOD!! Steak was cook to perfection! Jumbo shrimp was absolutely amazing! Service top of the line! Pricing was surprising; we love steak houses, and we have been to many in Vegas and we never get out of one with paying less than $300 plus tip. So we were surprise at how much we had to pay for such an exceptional meal!

One thing I would complaint though is that they sit people on top of each other even though there are a lot of empty tables in the restaurant, Which some people can be loud and doesn’t have steak house manners! But other than that! Again AMAZING AND EXCEPTIONAL!

Have been going to the Steakhouse at Circus Circus whenever we had the money when we were in Vegas. We've been going there for over 30 years. I had the steak filet mignon and crab legs and you could cut the steak with a fork. The food is well worth it so delicious

I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The ambiance was perfect. If you can get a seat behind where the food is cooked it's a perfect pair with the ambiance. Prepare to eat because the meat size is really big. Especially the prime rib. I can't wait to go back. You don't even feel like you're in the circus circus hotel after you enter the restaurant.

This steakhouse has been a top steakhouse in Las Vegas forever.

As good or better than any on the strip or off any the strip. True steakhouse ambiance.

It is nice that it is all alacart as salad and potatoes or similar option are included in a the meal.

We've been here before and couldn't wait to come back. Pricey steaks, but worth the price. My filet mignon was the best I've ever had. Old-fashioned service is phenomenal. We look forward to going back again on our next Vegas trip. Only two negatives--the lobster, the surf with the turf--was a bit over cooked and the artificial flowers should be retired.

My date recommended for us to go here. He saw this restaurant on the Cooking channel as a place to go to for a good steak. I had the Petite Prime Rib and it was so Delicious! My date had the 16 oz. Steak and he couldn't finish it as he was full.
When we go back to Vegas again The Steak House will be on put on our to do list as a place to eat!

We had a wonderful time at THE Steak House. We had a later seating at 9:30pm and we’re a little taken a back by our waiter, Felix. He was a little condescending when we were asking questions about the menu. He picked up the wine menu before we even had a chance to read it and I had to ask him for the wine list back so we could order a bottle. The food was great! Steaks were cooked perfectly! The same waiter did not bring us a dessert menu, rather said we have this, this and this. Our party likes to read what is on the menu and we were taken back by how rude and condescending he was. Not sure if we would come back, but if we did and were served by the same waiter, we would most certainly leave.

10 years ago we stumbled on a review which claimed this was the best Steak House in Las Vegas. Being in Circus Circus, not a high end casino, we were skeptical. On a lark we went there and were surprised by the quality of the food, service and ambiance. If we are in town for the XMAS holidays, we make it our go to spot for a moderately expensive but wonderful dinner. They continue as our top choice for a Las Vegas Steak House. Another plus for us is they don't charge for parking, which is not true of a majority of the Strip venues.
