Welcome to Border Grill, Las Vegas' destination restaurant overlooking the Lazy River just off Mandalay Beach, where Chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, Bravo's "Top Chef Masters" and Food Network's "Too Hot Tamales," want nothing more than to spice up your day. With two floors of patio dining, and a beautiful outdoor bar, it's the perfect setting for sipping margaritas and savoring the bold flavors of Mexico while enjoying views of the beach and pool. Border Grill Las Vegas is located in Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. There's so much to do at Mandalay Bay. The Shark Reef, right next door to the restaurant, features sharks of all kinds, as well as a slew of exotic, predatory marine life. Stop by for fish tacos after and have the last word in the food chain.

Great food!

Food was really good! I highly recommend the Garlic Shrimp and Scallops! I really like that they give you 3 types of salsa with your chips. The guacamole was very good. Plantains are outstanding!

My business colleagues and I stopped in the Border Grill before a trade show for breakfast because it was convenient. They offer omelets and eggs/meat. They do not have jelly/jam for your toast. Just salsa or ketchup. The food was okay. The waitstaff was less than attentive.

We joined two of my 1st grade students from 66 years ago for a long overdue wedding in a nearby chapel. The reception was held for a two hour period with a open bar and hors d'oeuvre served by the wait staff. Our group was about 40 strong and many toasts were giving. One problem was that the air conditioner... More

I always get the tortilla soup and tuna cevichi here. I can't vouch for anything else on the menu. But it is a decent lunch for an affordable price in the Mandalay Bay hotel.

We had one of the chef's specials titled just 'Steak and Potatoes'. Sounds pretty bland, but it was outstanding. We would have expected to pay far more than we did. Our waitress Gadsby was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. My mojito was excellent and the churro desser was so good we ordered one each instead of sharing!

This is a nice place, especially if visiting Shark Reef, or the convention center. The staff is efficient and quite friendly. Try the beef brisquet taquitos!

My wife and I like to do 3-nights trips to Las Vegas on a regular basis. We don't gamble but we eat & shop. We had reservations at a fine dining restaurant for evening #2 but nothing planned for the first evening. Since we were staying at Mandalay Bay we decided to look at the 'local' places and Border Grill... More

Had to get out of the convention area because as every other trade show I've attended the food is mediocre and very expensive. I came down the hall and got a seat right away. The service was excellent as well as the complimentary chips and salsa. I had a steak salad that was outstanding. I'll be back at the next... More

Ate with a group of about 20. Busy lunchtime crowd, but servers tried their best to keep up. Food was very good, but lunch took close to an hour and 20 minutes, so it might not be the best choice if you have time constraints.

Lunch at Border Grill means good food. If you are with a large convention, make a reservation or it could be a long wait. Fast service, many menu options. Inside and outdoor seating.
