I like the location -- it is away from the noise and smoke of the casino area. Elegant interior--darker wood, carpet, white tablecloth, pretty light fixtures. Although some of the other reviews have been very positive on the food, I found the food to be average. However, the cost is somewhat lower than the other casino steakhouses.

The food at the Steakhouse at Circus Circus is amazing. My husband and I both had the flame mignon and it was one of the best steaks I ever had. The service was good. The only minor issue was they were not aware of a promotion which got half price for buying show tickets. However they quickly remedy the situation... More

We were staying at our favorite Reno hotel, Circus Circus, this weekend. We ate Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Steakhouse. Food and service are always spectacular, but they now have a new menu with some more fantastic choices. There are now pasta selections which decided to try. The Fettucine Alfredo, which I added the shrimp to, was fantastic. The... More

Circus steakhouse is a fabulous place to meet and eat. Excellent food, service, and ambiance. Steak was prepared to my request and the staff was wonderful. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great dinner at a great price.

Went with a group of 6 to have stakes, etc., at the Circus Circus Steakhouse. The food was prepared the way we requested it. The prices kept us from eating there more than once, but it was worth the experience.

We come to Reno for the national bowling tournament. We ate here about 10 years ago & we decided to come back because we wanted a less fancy restaurant than Sterling's. I wish i had kept my original reservation. It took over 30 minutes just to get our drinks & only after I notified the manager that we hadn't received... More

The food and service is excellent. Comfortable with a very nice atmosphere. Conveniently located in the "mall" connecting the Silver Legacy, Circus Circus and Eldorado hotels.

My husband and I went to this restaurant with a large group. I'm always willing to cut a restaurant a break when they have to deal with 17+ people. The servers were excellent! But I remain confused why we were served microwave-warmed dinner rolls AND oil/balsamic... The vegetables served with dinner consisted of 1 roasted pepper, 2 roasted beans and... More

Enjoyed petite filet mignon, lobster bisque, au'gratin potatoes with mixed grilled veggies - and a small cheesecake dessert. Great deal! Exceptional service.

When invited to a business dinner at the steakhouse I was not really excited. After having a wonderful dinner I have to say that while I would not stay at the Circus-Circus, I would not hesitate to dine at the steakhouse again.

Thank James H
