We have the most delightful experience at the steak house in circus circus hotel and casino.
Cosy atmosphere, quiet and elegant surrounding.
Our steak was cooked to the perfection, the salad very tasty eith a lot of variety of garnishing, beets, cucumber, croutons, the bread was warm and delicious. We will definitely return.

The majority of the reviews on The Steakhouse are very good. The restaurant lives up to it's reputation. We have been to many, many Steakhouses all over the country. The Steakhouse at Circus Circus is certainly one of the best. The ambiance is traditional steakhouse, with the red leather booths, however, the restaurant is not stuffy. Appetizers were excellent, the wedge was excellent, the crab cake was great and the French Onion soup was one of the best we've had. The Rib Eye steaks were perfect. I always ask for charred on the outside and rare on the inside & they got it perfect. Everyone had the perfectly cooked steak. Service was good. The GM was awesome and he kept coming over to make sure we had a good time.
Highly recommended. We would absolutely go back again for the perfect steak. Unlike the celebrity chef Steakhouses, The Steakhouse at Circus Circus is not pretentious. Just a fun place with great food.

Good value for a good steak. Had the fillet, baked potato, asparagus, onion soup upgrade...all tasted good. Steak was a little under cooked however server took care of it and brought a whole new plate with the steak. Corkage was about $20 - do not remember but it was significantly less than some of the other vegas steakhouses. Located in Circus Circus which is a dated venue. Very good basic steak and sides. Nothing extra ordinary....

My husband said the steak was the best he ever had, however my halibut was very bland. The garlic mashed potatoes were okay, but I’ve had better in a lot of places. The salad was also nothing to write home about other than the large chunks of blue cheese, if you’re a fan. The bread was not good. So basically it was an awesome steak and everything else was a disappointment.

The steak there was absolutely wonderful! One of the best steaks my husband and I had. We shared a dinner, simply because the steak for one person is so big! Very very good deal for the money. The service was awesome!

Don’t be fooled by its location inside one of the grungiest casinos on the Strip: this is an elite five star steakhouse. Once you walk inside the doors, you’re transported away from drunken tourists with giant booze slushees, flustered gamblers, and screaming children into a warm, comfortable setting. The steaks are brazier cooked and the cuts of meat are exceptional. My ribeye was the least fatty cut I’ve ever had and incredibly flavorful.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on November 6, 2017

This was my fifth visit to THE Steakhouse (first in a couple years), and the first time I've been disappointed. Very disappointed. The classic steakhouse ambiance is still excellent, but the food was a major disappointment. The French Onion soup I began with was solid, as were the sauteed mushrooms I had on the side of my steak. But we came for the steak, and that was a major disappointment. My medium-rare ribeye was cooked more on the well side of medium, but it wasn't so bad that it was worth complaining about - a ribeye can handle a little overcooking. But the real issue was that when I'm spending high end steakhouse prices, I want a Prime, dry aged steak with a lot of flavor. This steak looked the part, but it tasted like unaged Choice beef that I can get at the grocery store. Frankly, the $10 ribeyes I make on a regular basis are better than this. Heck, I think they forgot the salt - I added quite a bit.
But what was really criminal was what they did to the lobster tail my friend ordered. I tried a bit - if I'd closed my eyes and not known what it was, I would have guessed really over-cooked chicken. He decided not to complain. I wish he would have - for the price of that lobster tail, it should be perfect.
Service was solid, but not very attentive - we would have ordered another round of drinks, but the didn't come back for an extended period.
All in all, I've recommended THE Steakhouse many times. I can't do so anymore.

I can't say enough great things about THE STEAK HOUSE!!!! RESERVATIONS are not required, BUT, don't wait until the day of, because more than likely, you WILL NOT GET IN. As far as I know, there is not a dress code, but ive seen Jeans&Polos, & suit & tie.

The smell of the smoke/meat hit you as you enter the establishment. DON"T let the fact that it is inside Circus Circus keep you from thinking its a great experience. I have been eating there since 2001, and every time, is just perfect!

The Entrée does include a salad, and a side in the price! You can upgrade 1 of those selections to a soup for $6.00 (I always take the French onion)

The restaurant has an "OLD SCHOOL" steak house feel with its dark wood, and red leather seating.

I highly reccomend

Our visit to Vegas we made to dinner reservations one at Chef Gordon Ramsay and also The Steakhouse. . The steakhouse was by far a better choice and needless to say will probably be the only place we will be dining for steaks when visiting Vegas. We will not return to the Ramsey place. In comparison the steakhouse is one of the best compared to Texas

Saw this restaurant on TV and read some great reviews. I have wanted to try it for a long time and finally did it. So glad we did...it truly lived up to the hype! One of the best steaks I've ever had from any restaurant. It is pricey but worth every penny. It is a good value when you compare prices with other Vegas steakhouses and considering your salad/soup and side is included with the meal. Circus Circus is a bit shady but it doesn't take away from the atmosphere in the restaurant.

Outstanding food. We always order a bone-in rib eye steak and split and add extra sides. Plenty of food for us. We always ask for Mike from Wisconsin for our server. After our first experience years ago, he's provided outstanding service. We visited with our son and daughter-in-law (first timers) to celebrate her birthday. A chocolate mousse cake topped off the meal perfectly. Don't be put off by location in Circus Circus. The Steak House is a top restaurant and worth the travel.

The location within Circus Circus is a bit misleading. This is an upscale restaurant with excellent quality food and service. My steak was cooked to perfection and the French onion soup was divine. Our server, Richard, was phenomenal. I was very impressed with the entire experience and will definitely be returning. I highly recommend The Steak House for Las Vegas dining.

We went to THE steak house for my wife’s birthday and to round off our trip to Vegas. Wow, what a restaurant. It seemed utterly improbable that in a dump of a hotel (sorry Circus Circus but you have had better days!) we could find a great restaurant. However, there it is. A fabulous restaurant with so much ambience and authenticity. An absolute must for any visitor to this crazy city. Enjoy!
