Great, reasonably priced restaurant for steak in a casual setting?

    Would love to have a great steak dinner but don't want a fancy, dress-up restaurant - want to order something like steak and fries or steak and onion rings yet don't want to spend a ton. Is there such a place??

    It seems to be rarely mentioned here but we like the Outback across from the Mirage. We like the 16oz bone-in ribeye, around $30.

    We'll get slammed for it, but my g/f and I have also ate here and it was fine. It's even cheaper if you have a car and drive out to the premium south outlet.

    The big reason why people usually don't mention this place is that you can eat there in any significant city nationwide. Hell we just ate it on Friday. Lol

    As far as most casino steakhouses go, I can't comment as I'm clearly to cheap to eat there.

    Triple George downtown would be good option.

    I have a technically useful but still kinda snarky answer, if what you care about is the price rather than specifically the "not being fancy": we just bought a livingsocial deal for 40 dollars to the ludicrously expensive ENVY Steakhouse, for which we got an extra 10 dollars off (so, $30 for $80) through a coupon code that is still running until midnight eastern today, "CYBERSALE". Might be helpful. ;) (50 bucks for free was too much to pass up, even at the hilarious rates they're charging on steak there.)

    The Circus Circus steakhouse, despite the location, is great and reasonable. Also unlike the new steak houses everything is included in the price, so no extra charge for fries/salad, etc.

    You know, CC Steak for years always hit that spot between Sizzler price and Craftsteak meat, but even with sides, with steaks now north of the $50 barrier, that's going to be around the bend for many people, I fear. Another place I always pushed right into the mix was Mon Ami Gabi at Paris, for the steak frites, but it isn't exactly low-cost. (Sure, there are other outlets across America, but it's not an every-corner thing like Olive Garden.) Fun ambience, fun wine list.

    I agree with looking downtown and the groupon/whatever coupon route.

    This is always a tough one because things like great and value mean so many things when you look at something like cow; both Ellis Island and Delmonico remain open, busy and with loyal followings.

    Bob Taylor's Ranch House serves a steak that puts most of the strip places to shame!They don't mind casual.

    Only problem is it's out in the toolies, but well worth the trip.

    Gordon Ramsay Pub at Caesars has a steak with sides for $35 and Margaritaville has a couple steaks for under $30. Don't know about onion rings. The Outback at Casino Royale actually can have a decent view if you get seated by a window. You won't really find a steak on the strip for much less unless you go to the new Chilis or go way north of Wynn. I don't know much about Downtown.

    Went to both Ellis Island and Triple George Grill last week.

    EI: always tasty, $9 steak/potatoes/salad/beer special. Has been spiffed up a bit, mainly in the restaurant area. But certainly not fancy.

    TGG: the "find" of the trip. Casual (but I might not want to wear a t-shirt and jeans, but that might just be me). We sat at the bar, which was very comfortable for dining, actually. Bartenders were friendly and highly competent. My wife had the steak special which was around $30 and was delicious. I had the fish tacos special which was also delicious. Highly recommend. Here's the menu:

    I just ate at the Cortez Room at the Gold Coast a couple of weeks back, and had a really fine prime rib dinner, plus scalloped (creamed) corn to die for. The corn was even better than the creamed corn from the Flame was. Price was very reasonable. They had several steaks on the menu, but I wanted prime rib. I wore jeans and a nice knit shirt and felt right at home.

    It was my first visit there; it won't be my last.

    I'm not a steak eater myself but in March, we went to Mon Ami Gabi at Paris where daughter & s-I-l got a steak & swore it was one of the best tasting steaks they have ever had....so tender hardly had to use the knife. Think it was under $30 with frites.....

    2 great options

    here are two options, both of which i took advantage of on my recent solo poker tourney trip.

    1. happy hour at ruth chris, upstairs in harrahs, where the range used to be. on sunday of the las vegas marathon, so added bonus of looking out through the floor to ceiling windows at the runners! with a harrahs card, during happy hour, so i went at 5:30, a prime beef steak sandwich, with fries and bernaise sauce, for 11.99. the caesars salad i added on was 10 bucks, and the happy hour beer was 5. but you could really take this the budget route, and either sit at the bar, or at one of the ten or so tables in the lounge, with perfect service.

    2. palm steakhouse, just into the forum shop area from caesars palace casino, the businessmen's special, 25.99 now, i think. a great bread basket, caesar's salad for me, though soup or an upgrade to the lobster bisque would not be a deal breaker. three options for the main course, i had the twin tenderloins, comes with a plate of home fries mixed with their onion strings. for dessert i moaned that they used to have key lime pie, not just the cheesecake or chocolate cake, so they readily brought me the key lime. i just had coffee, really good, and so saved myself from the 10 dollar drinks or the 15 dollar 9 oz. pours of wine...but only because i was playing in a tourney in an hour or so. this meal is probably in the 70 dollar range if you had it for dinner of off their menu. again, top notch service, and something i try to take advantage of every trip. you have to do this at lunchtime, from 11:30, i think, until 2ish?

    I had the filet mignon and a Stella Artois. $50 if I remember right. And it was excellent.

    IIRC, Charlie Palmers has the Cut of the Week specials for $50? Not sure if they enforce a dress code though and it's not a bad price for a three-course steak meal.

    People weren't dressed up in Ruth's Chris? My experience in other locations is that it's generally guys in suits.

    STACK @ Mirage is definitely casual (jeans & a t-shirt/polo). They don't show prices on the website right now, but I recall it being < $50/person for the Prix Fixe menu. I thought it was a good value, and went there multiple times.
     
    Only 2nd trip for year :(
