We make at least one trip per month to Circus Circus and never miss eating at The Steakhouse as often as we can. The constantly updated menu by head chef Daniel Pfeiffer is great ant the food is outstanding. The selection keeps us trying new things every month and we are never disappointed. There is talk that new ownership is... More

The food and service are excellent. The prices are high for what you get. You are paying for the service. It is decorated very nice.

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

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
