    I am not a steak lover so I seldom go to a Steakhouse. But I do have a craving for a lobster. Where can I find a great lobster dinner?

    If you are willing to try a non-traditional lobster dinner, try the lobster pot pie at Nobhill in MGM. It is fantastic and I believe they use a whole 1.5 pound lobster in it.

    I don't know about a lobster dinner per se, but if you love lobster, you will have to try the lobster pot pie at Sea Blue (MGM Grand) or Michael Mina (Bellagio) sometime. Both are chef Michael Mina restaurants and it is his signature dish.

    The price is market value but it is usually in the neighborhood of about $80-85, and worth every last penny. It is fantastic!!

    P.S. - I just noticed the pot pie post above this one from DRich2 recommending the lobster pot pie at Nob Hill - that is another Michael Mina restaurant and is the same exact thing I am recommending! It is a 2lb Maine Lobster that is used, and the dish is plated tableside - they come and cut the buttery, flaky crust off the top of a large steel pot and put it on the plate, then assemble the lobster on the crust (which has been artfully sliced in the shell). Next comes the seasonal vegetables and gravy from inside the pot. I am telling you, once you try it you will be hooked for life!

    They have a great chicken fried lobster at Binions Steakhouse. Different but very tasty.

    If you don't want to do a high end dinner somewhere, I've heard great reviews about Lobster Me in the PH Shops.

    I'd recommend Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab for any seafood cravings.

    If you like your lobster either char-broiled or grilled over a wood fire, Country Club at Wynn & American Fish at Aria [respectively] are two good options.

    If you like your lobsters huge, if the Old Homestead in Caesars' Palace is anything like the ones in NYC & AC, they will have live Maines up to 4-5lbs. [and possibly even bigger!] every night of the week - and while I haven't been to the one in Vegas yet, I've always had good meals at the ones in NYC & AC [and frequently get the lobster when I eat at the one in AC]

    Thanks for all the ideas. I have read alot about the lobster pot pie. I guess its time to try it. I also have been wanting to try Old Homestead Steakhouse since I have been staying at Caesar's my last few visits. I just hate trying a newly open restaurant until all the bugs have been worked out. I like walking by restaurants and looking at the plates as people eat. I am nosy that way. On my last visit we noticed the place was packed but not one plate was on any table.
