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 Sure, you have to walk through the outdated casino at Circus Circus but once you enter the restaurant you are transported back to a time when customers were treated like kings.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

A wonderful place for a intimate dinner with friends. The staff couldn't be better and go to great lengths to make sure everything is perfect. The steaks are amazing and cooked to perfection. The wine list is extensive and lots of good choices. Dessert was 'to die for' as the saying goes. We had a wonderful time and would certainly... More

The Steakhouse is rated high on the list for steak. First you have to overlook the Circus, Circus environment as it is very off-putting to say the least. The portions were great however the food arrived cool and the salmon was not the best I had in Vegas or anywhere else for that matter. Although the steak was beautiful visually... More

Have been coming to this Steakhouse for years. The steaks are always great and cooked perfect. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. One of the Best Steakhouses in the Reno area. Price is very reasonable. Don't miss it.

We arrived for an early dinner and were promptly seated right away. Every staff member we encountered were professional and friendly. The food was beyond perfection! Pair this with the attentive wait staff and we're guaranteed to make a return visit.

Truly the BEST Steakhouse in Reno. The extensive menu offers selections that everyone will enjoy. The steaks are cooked to perfection every time. Monique, the manager, is always ready to make sure that everyone is satisfied and her staff is top notch. We love to have Veronica, Benam , and Sylvia serve us, as they all give outstanding service and... More
