    Hey all!

    We are off to Downtown in 7 days!!!! So excited. Not sure what to pack clothing wise since we are usually in Vegas in July, but a good sweater never hurts.......

    Never been to the Redwood bar and grill, but I am wondering, would nice jeans be ok?

    Thanks!

    We eat at Redwood probably about 10 times per year. Unfortunately, almost anything is acceptable. I'm usually in jeans and a polo and sometimes shorts in summer. But we have seen wife-beater shirts, ripped tees, baseball caps etc, so don't worry about it.

    The food is very good! Enjoy. If you like steak, the porterhouse (18oz) special for $24 is a buy. Includes soup or salad, potato, and desert. My fav is the 16 oz bone-in ribeye.

    Too bad they got rid of the piano player. It made for a nice touch and he took requests.
    EDIT: I realize some might find jeans and a polo, or shorts and a polo poorly dressed also, but it is a resort town.

    Thanks Joe. We would usually bring nicer clothes, but trying to limit to what can be packed into a carry on bag. In July this isn't an issue because of the heat. This is the first time in about 10 years we've been to town in November and I just don't know how to pack this time around. Been wanting to try the Redwood so we will try to do so this trip. We love a good steak too, so thank you for your recommendations!

    I guess many Vegas establishments will make exceptions as long as the patron wears clothes that are clean. Especially in the summer months, it would be hard to enforce strict dress codes; the establishment would risk losing a potential customer.

    Going in the month of Nov. when the weather starts to get cool, packing a set of nice clothes is prudent. Your packing strategy will call for cooler weather wear anyway. And the way I see it, entering a casual/fine dining establishment like the Redwood in Nov. would certainly raise eyebrows from the patrons and employees if someone walks in with shorts, sandals/slippers and a scruffy t-shirt. Not so much if it was July.

    But like Joe said, Redwood has seen it all. From my 2 visits there, both in November, the patrons I saw in there were wearing collared dress shirts/polos and nice jeans or dress slacks. I did see a group that looked like they just finished a round of golf and they looked perfectly fine.

    Yes, I've had to filet lobster combo. I've also had just tails. My wife really likes the 1.5# King Crab legs. We also must start very meal with the escargot a la garlic.

    I'm a carnivore, but my wife has also had the ahi and the lobster thermidor. She liked both, but her thoughts were the thermidor was almost too rich after a day of drinking. :beer:

    We don't abuse our Gold Card, but I do notice that the food bill is usually in a direct relationship to our gambling results. Losing big, lobster and crab it is. :poke: :evillaugh

    Winning, then a ribeye and porterhouse are just fine.

    I have heard the baked oysters are fairly good (from an authority on such subjects) so you may want to try those.

    But the thing is, they never know when the scruffy one is also the high roller and they can't take a chance offending someone who might be, so I don't really think there would be a reaction from the staff. Customers maybe, but what are they going to do? Complain on their way out? That just puts management between a rock and hard place. We're back to the what if it's an important customer, who dresses like crap.

    How true, Joe. That point slipped my mind.
