Underrated, Good food and Service

Sterlings is great but booked a lot, so this hidden Gem is still a secret spot on the strip. Great service and good for 2 to 12 to eat. Food excellent and server (Marita) was excellent. They didn't have the wine that I asked for but then again they had some great specialty drinks that made the... read more

This perfectly prepared meal was an unexpected find at the Circus Circus casino. So glad we gave it a try last year and recently visited a second time which was just as good so we are two for two!

We stayed in Circus circus and it was the perfect place to eat dinner at the Steakhouse Circus circus. The Service was from the first to the last second perfect. We had a very friendly welcome from a french lady and ouer waiter from Sri Lanka was realy so very kind and the service was upperclass. The food was arranged... More

First time here...but guaranteed not to be our last. Started with drinks in the bar. I was unfamiliar with the chardonnays offered, and the bartender offered me tastes of each. Much appreciated! Hostess Monique was wonderful. We were there before 6:30 pm and chose to order from the early menu. What a great deal! Starter, main and desert for about... More

One of my favorite Steakhouses in Las Vegas is at Circus-Circus, so I decided to try the location in Reno. It was great! Once you walk through the door, you are in another world, no longer a circus. Very good service and a great steak! I will return on my next visit to Reno.

My fam ate here Dec 27/14. Unfortunately you have to walk the gauntlet of the tired, old Circus Circus Casino to get to this hidden gem - but once inside the restaurant! You are transported back in time: Low lighting, vinyl seats, exposed grill right in the middle of the restaurant. The service was attentive and superb. Our server had... More

My Son & I went there on 12/19/14. I'll start off by saying the atmosphere was cozy with soft lighting. My Son's steak was primo. Cooked to perfection. I had the King crab legs. They were awful. Fishy tasting, no seasoning and watery. The waiter never came back to check on us, so I was left with nothing to eat... More

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at The Steakhouse. Sure, you have to walk through the outdated casino at Circus Circus but once you enter the restaurant you are transported back to a time when customers were treated like kings. Low lighting, red vinyl cushions on the seats, wine cellars, steaks aging and the kitchen/grill located right in... More
