Had the $19 prime rib special. The portion was good sized and tender but tasted like the stuff you get from Sam' Club, not what you expect from Circus Circus in Las Vegas. The lobster bisque was salty and redder than expected. I made a mistake in ordering vegetable tempura--it just didn't go with the meat. Service was rushed--cleaning the... More

It was in the Hotel and they advertise the $19 Prime Rib Dinner! I don't eat red meat so I figured I'd try their non beef dishes! The first night I had the Pasta Primavera that was good. My friend had the NY Strip and said it was one of the Best Steaks he's ever had! But a couple days... More

My wife and I split the prime rib special (12 oz) and it was good. We got the end cut since I like it a little more cooked and all the spice. The meat was good and plenty for the two of us. In fact I would argue if it was only 12 oz. Our's was cooked perfectly. We had... More

If you are in or stay at the Circus Circus, you can not go wrong eating a Prime Rib dinner which was very reasonable, $19.00 with soup or salad, rolls, and veggie. I ordered mine Rare and it was perfect, melt in your mouth, getting hungry right now thinking about it.

Best meal we've had all year! All the food was just perfect although we felt that the staff tried a bit too hard. The hostess pulled our table to the side so we could easily slide in. It was supposed to be a nice gesture but soon became awkward because my husband wanted to sit there & she was blocking... More

Nice food (soup/salad followed by meat/fish). My medium rare steak was rare (not medium rare), my boyfriends was medium rare as it should be. Fine restaurant for normal prices, but for this price absolutely not good enough! Wish we didn't spend so much money on this food

I had guests from out of town last weekend so we took advantage of the $12.99 Prime Rib and Lobster. The prime rib was a glorified piece of lunchmeat and the lobster was more like a crawdad. Not to mention it took and HOUR to get our food.. You get what you pay for, never again!!

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.
