    Had lunch there on a Tuesday.

    Menu located here:

    https://www.caesars.com/content/dam/las/Dining/Casual/KGB/Harrahs-Las%20Vegas-Dining-Casual-KGB-8.pdf

    It's a "seat yourself" kind of place I was there at 11:30 AM.

    I had the Manhattan Clam chowder and the New England Shellfish Boil.

    The Manhattan Clam Chowder was excellent, considering that I only had Campbell's to compare it to. Otherwise, in restaurants I have only had New England Clam chowder. For those of you not familiar with the difference, New England, or white is milk/cream based. Manhattan, or red, is tomato based. I like to put hot sauce in mine to give it a little "kick".

    The New England Shellfish Boil was quite a meal, I couldn't quite finish it, but my late Momma would have been proud because I ate all the meat (Andouille Sausage) and shrimp before I stopped. I always remember her telling me to make sure that if I was full and couldn't eat another bite, that I at least ate the meat.

    Clams, mussels, crab claws, shrimp, red potatoes, Andouille sausage, and a small corn on the cob boiled in an ale broth. The broth wasn't quite strong enough to drink by itself, so I'm glad that I had soup.

    All in all, a very nice lunch. Was it a $40 lunch? Probably not, but it was very, very good.

    I will definitely be back again . . .

    just one of my pet peeves, Manhattan Clam Chowder isn't Chowda to this Yankee.. It's SOUP:poke::evillaugh

    i do like eating there at the bar.... often tell the cook to make me something off the menu.

    Not a fancy place at all. It's one of those little, out of the way places that you get hooked on. I won't leave Vegas without going there at least once. Last time I had the crab Louie salad. Loved it. I try to get something different each time, and I'm usually the guy who sticks with the same dish at the same place. Now, I'm getting hungry.

    Oyster Bar/House lover here. I'd love to try this place. Is it a small place? When do you think would be the best times to go to avoid crowds?

    I'll go at 2am in the morning if it guarantees I can get a table.....

    I agree with Mike. The crap has got to stop. If it is red and has clams in it its soup. Only clam chowder made with milk or cream can be called chowder.

    Any chef who disagrees with me, we'll see me out back....

    In my opinion Big Al's at the Orleans has a better chowder. The New Englnd boil was pretty good when I had it a few weeks ago, I did manage to finish it but barely.

    What about oyster stew? I ordered oyster stew for the first time and it was definitely not my idea of a "stew".

    Big Als no contest. Not impressed with oyster bar, food or service.

    Living on the coast you get spoiled I suppose. But this place is absolutely nasty. I was actually scared I was gong to get sick while eating.
