“Worth the drive”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We came down from a week of hiking in the Southern Utah National Parks to stay with friends in Las Vegas before flying home. We showed up even after cancelling our reservation because of a slower than expected trip down. Katie was happy to see we showed up. Crab Cake appetizer was delicious and full of crab meat. My wife's lamb chops were so simple but so good, one of the best chops she has eaten. If you want to get away from the hustle of downtown and the strip for great food, this is the place to be. Tom the owner is a really nice guy and Stacy gave us first class service. Definitely worth the drive. We'll be back for sure

“Just real Food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We travel frequently to Las Vegas for vacation, and always enjoy the variety of good food that is available. On a recent trip we were lucky enough to have found Off the Strip, the staff is a cut above in the way they know the menu and are able to help you find that perfect dish. The food is so well prepared, the portions are very generous you may not be able to eat the portion but trying is the fun part. Please try this place anytime you are in town, you will not regret it and you will schedule another trip around the nightly specials just like we did. We will be there next week for at least three dinners, maybe more.

“WOW! What An Amusing Dining Experience!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Eight of us dined here in mid October (2012) on a Friday evening. It was about an 18 minute trip from the Marriott Grand Chateau. Easy to find. This was our first dining experience here. (Our sixth consecutive [yearly] visit to Las Vegas.....golfing trip.) I ordered the "Lemon Pork Chops." What a succulent treat! The atmosphere was unique, (informal & congenial). The waitresses were
skillful and friendly with a flair for congeniality! This was an amusing place to be! We shall return this October (2013). Can't wait!

“Best meal of the trip”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Strong menu, smoke-free. Very pleasant, excellent service. Many families from the neighborhood eat there. Moderate price, better than average food.

“Worth the trip!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

As other reviews have said, please don't judge this restaurant by it's cover. It is all about great food and fantastic service. We turned up without a reservation about 7.30pm on a Tuesday and were seated immediately and even though the place suddenly filled up and all the tables ordered at the same time, the staff handled the rush expertly. We didn't order starters as we would never have managed to eat our main course, but we were all offered the salad that is included with most main courses. The Caesar salad was the best I've ever tasted and the sweetened house salad dressing was yummy too. We had the French style pork chops, the orange roughy fish dish and the stuffed chicken breast and we couldn't fault any of the dishes. So full of flavour and huge portions at honest prices. After dinner, the lovely waitress brought us a complimentary cheesecake to share which was as good as everyone says. I love to bake and would love the recipe as it was perfect. Thank you Off The Strip for a wonderful meal and the best service we have experienced during our fortnight in Vegas.
