We went for a rare Friday date night. This joint was perfect. Stellar musicians, and not too loud to chat a little. Classy but comfortable vibe. (Don’t wear flip flops). I had the crab stuffed salmon special and it was delicious. My date had the shrimp fra diavalo and ordered it at a hot level. It was fabulous as well. It was nice to review the menu online before we went and could see that pricing is comparable to other restaurants of this caliber (and they don’t have comped live music) The dining room is all ages so bring your well mannered children and expose them to live music. It seems as tho they have an agreement with the local arts high school to get them on stage during the week and that is commendable and we will be back during the week to check that out. There was another room on the other side of the bar that was a very cool intimate lounge perfect for a cocktail. I almost hate to give great reviews because it causes the tourists to take over the secret local haunts, but hopefully someday when reservations will need to be made a month in advance to get a table, us locals will get special consideration. Well done, Vics. See you very soon.

The food was amazing and the service was great. Everyone was so nice and very knowledgeable about the menu. I would definitely return!! Only thing I found odd was the happy hour not being acknowledged when we were there. The website states one thing but we were told something different. That might be something that needs to be corrected.

Ambience was very loud. Big kids birthday party and kids were out of control running around. Hardly any staff to serve and take orders. I felt bad for the manager. Group of 12 adults stuck around 2 pits. 6 people grilling at the same table.

Fantastic view of the Bellagio fountains. Excellent burgers. It was 109 degrees, but they had some misters and fans and a nice breeze. Music volume actually permitted conversation.

So we were looking for a place with TVs and we found Flanker Kitchen + Sports Bar - we took a drive out here from our hotel and we are SO HAPPY that we did! The food was absolutely perfect and worth the money! You have to try the nachos! Not only that but our waitress was so sweet and she even remembered our table’s complicated order without writing it down! Truly an all-star and the staff was fantastic! Highly recommended and will definitely be back! Thank you for the amazing experience for our family!
