If there’s one thing you can expect to find in Las Vegas (aside from casinos!), it’s a good steakhouse. The city practically overflows with them, and they come in all different sizes and price-points, meaning there’s something for everyone. They’re also among some of the best steakhouses in the US, with many visitors claiming Vegas even tops NYC for variety and quality. Here’s where to go to get your steak fix.

Golden Steer 

This may be the oldest steakhouse in the city. So if you want to dine somewhere with history and character, this is it. This restaurant has served many of the Las Vegas greats—yes, Sinatra and Elvis have eaten here—so you can rest assured you’re getting a Golden-Age Vegas experience while chowing down on Alaskan king crab legs and bone-in ribeye.

Hugo’s Cellar 

This old-school restaurant epitomizes retro elegance, Vegas style. Case in point: Each lady to dine at Hugo’s Cellar—located in the Four Queens hotel—is given a rose. Just as classy is the menu—veal oscar, char-broiled filet de boeuf and slow-roasted prime rib all make a pretty great case for this classic steakhouse experience.

Heritage Steak 

This steakhouse pretty much has it all: celebrity chef, sleek dining room and juicy steaks cooked over an open flame. Best of all, Chef Tom Colicchio’s award-winning team cooks up some seriously choice cuts—kobe skirt steak, Japanese wagyu, 28-day dry-aged ribeye—and antibiotic-free meats.


Located in TheD Hotel, this steakhouse’s philosophy is simple: Source some of the country’s best, most high-quality meats, and let them speak for themselves. And the porterhouse, filet and 32-ounce long bone ribeye seem to do a lot of talking. The menu also balances some hearty Italian classics, including veal osso buco and lobster risotto, so there’s likely something for everyone.

If you like your all-natural, organic and hormone-free steak tempered in butter and grilled over mesquite wood, then the Mandalay Bay‘s Stripsteak is the steakhouse for you. The James Beard-winning, chef-driven restaurant also boasts more than 100 single-malt scotches, ensuring you’ll find the perfectly smokey, peaty pairing for your steak or duck bolognese.

The Steakhouse at Circus Circus 

Circus Circus is the proud home of 9 restaurants, but The Steak House is its crown jewel. That’s thanks largely to its drool-worthy menu of lobster tails, Alaskan king crab legs and massive porterhouse steaks (all of which are best consumed together). And about those steaks: Each slice of Midwestern beef is aged for 21 days and prepared on an open-hearth mesquite charcoal broiler. Yum, indeed!

SW Steakhouse

It takes a lot to win a Forbes Travel Guide Four Star award. So how did this upscale Wynn Hotel eatery do it? For starters, they’re one of very few American restaurants to serve authentic Kobe beef. Oh, and its chili-rubbed double ribeye was showcased on the Food Network‘s “Best Thing I Ever Ate.” The only thing that might make it better? Digging into it on the restaurant’s glamorous veranda overlooking the Lake of Dreams.

Fogo De Chao

This last pick is indeed a national chain, but you’ll get to experience the art of churrasco. What’s that, you ask? The gaucho chefs at national chain Fogo de Chao will be happy to teach you this Southern Brazilian tradition via an endless supply of fire-roasted meats—andeven veggies, if you’re into that sort of thing. Here, the servers circle the dining room, offering top sirloin, filet, lamb and pork loin right off the spit, making it perhaps the world’s classiest all-you-can-eat environment and a popular choice among Las Vegas steakhouses.
