Last updated: August 5, 2014 at 5:37 pm. Posted by in Las Vegas Restaurants. 4 Comments on Eat Your Heart Out At These Las Vegas Steakhouses.

Get ready to loosen your belt buckle (or wear your most comfy, “flow-y” dress): We made it easy and rounded up the best Las Vegas steakhouses. These places all include the popular types like New York Strip, ribeye, filet mignon and dry-aged, but each still has its own unique spin. And while this blogger is indeed a vegetarian, she’s no steakhouse snob and will happily nosh on the drool-worthy sides listed below.

Happy eating, everyone!

Gordon Ramsay Steak, Paris Las Vegas

  • Highlights: The prime beef is aged for 28 days in a Himalayan salt room. Prime beef includes Porterhouse, bone-in rib eye, New York Strip, filet and Royal Long-Bone Chop.
  • Other standouts: Try the American Eye wrapped in Mangalitsa pork. Pair your steak with butter-poached lobster tail, Alaskan king crab legs or pan-seared foie gras. Sides include truffle fingerling potatoes with parmesan, sautéed mushrooms and truffle mac and cheese with blue, cheddar and parmesan.
  • Sweet treat: Gordon Ramsay’s famed sticky toffee pudding – a sweet pudding cake with brown sugar toffee and brown butter ice cream.

Old Homestead Steakhouse, Caesars Palace

  • Highlights: Old Homestead Steakhouse dry ages its prime steaks for 30 days in an aging box. All steaks are seasoned with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Ideal for sharing, order the Porterhouse for 2, sliced right at the table. Off the bone options like Sherry Brothers New York Strip and ribeye, as well on the bone like filet mignon and New York Strip.
  • Other standouts:  Jazz up your steak with blue cheese, onion and bacon or truffle butter. If you’re in the mood for a burger, try the 10-ounce dry-aged burger, served with duck fat fries. Meat-free options include asparagus (grilled, sautéed or steamed), tater tots with Fat Boy sauce, gnocchi with truffle butter and blue cheese potato gratin.
  • Sweet treat: The Baked Alaska – Neapolitan ice cream with vanilla almond cake.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Harrah’s Las Vegas

  • Highlights: A steakhouse with a New Orleans kick. Enjoy traditional steak like the corn-fed Midwestern filet mignon or the signature rib-eye, presented to you well-marbled and juicy. Top your steak with a brandy pepper sauce or make it Oscar-style topped with crab cake, asparagus and béarnaise sauce.
  • Other standouts: Sesame ginger-seared scallop; fresh halibut with lobster and crab, served with hollandaise sauce; and a special vegetarian plate (woo hoo!). The vegetarian option gives you a choice of three potato dishes or vegetable sides. These include potatoes au gratin, sweet potato casserole, creamed spinach, sautéed mushrooms and fresh asparagus with hollandaise, to name a few.
  • Sweet treat: Chocolate Explosion – a devil’s food cake with a warm chocolate center, topped with vanilla ice cream and fresh caramel sauce.

BLT Steak, Bally’s

  • Highlights: Traditional steak cuts, dry-aged for 28 days. Try  the dry-aged Porterhouse or New York Strip steak with the restaurant’s famous popovers infused with Gruyere cheese.
  • Other standouts: Grilled spicy miso tuna, West and East Coast oysters, herb parmesan-crusted veal chop and truffle mash potatoes.
  • Sweet treat: Peanut butter chocolate mousse with banana ice cream.

VooDoo Steakhouse, Rio

  • Highlights: Dishes come with a Cajun kick. All steaks are dry aged in-house with tangy spices. Surf ‘n Turf lovers will love Voodoo Ménage a Trois, 6-ounce petite filet, 4-ounce cold water lobster tail and jumbo prawns. Top your steak with foie gras or horseradish garlic crust.
  • Other standouts: The lobster bisque and other seafood dishes like braised Chilean sea bass or pan-roasted sea scallops. Meatless options include truffle mac and cheese, broccoli sautéed in garlic and olive oil and poached jumbo asparagus with lemon aioli. Pair your meal with the Witch Doctor, a dry ice cocktail with five kinds of rum and fruit juice.
  • Sweet treat: VooDoo Fondue – flavored marshmallows, pound cakes, crispies and fresh fruits sauces for dipping.

Center Cut Steakhouse, Flamingo

  • Highlights: All steaks are hormone and steroid-free. We hear the 28-ounce Prime Tomahawk Bone-in rib-eye is a hit. Steaks range from blue (very red, cold center) to well done (no pink, hot center).  Brush your steak with dijon peppercorn, red wine or béarnaise sauce for an extra punch.
  • Standouts: Lime poached shrimp cocktail; lobster mac and cheese; bleu cheese-encrusted rack of lamb; and Scottish salmon with black truffle vinaigrette. Add some green to your plate like broccolini or lemon sautéed spinach.
  • End with: The 18-layer chocolate cake accompanied with chocolate mousse, truffle ganache and whipped cream.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.

    Nice review, but why are all the steakhouses you reviewed only at Caesars properties?
    You left out some great places.

  2. Jolly The Green Giant

    Cause this is a caesar only blog?

    You’re certainly right, Johnny! There are many other steakhouses in Las Vegas aside from the ones I mentioned here. If I had included them all, this story would’ve been a mile long! Just wanted to share a ‘taste’ of what Caesars has to offer to steak aficionados 🙂

    Cool blog, I went to the SW Steakhouse at the WYNN, love vegas – it was the most amazing place I have been too, the peppercorn sauce is like something from heaven! I went as a treat as part of my Vegas Wedding – its was awesome!
