    I did the tender steakhouse when the reward first came out and was $150 free
    just looking on opinions on the Excalibur steakhouse reward, should we go with that one (and the $50 or $100 one) or go back to tender - we had a great meal at tender

    I have never tried Tender, but we used the Excalibur reward and the rib eye was one of the best steaks I have ever had. We did it when it was all free in the beginning and it was way too much food.

    Been to both with myVegas rewards and I thought tender was significantly better. I'd compare tender to Morton's and Excalibur to Outback. Tender also had a better wine list.

    I think tender is definitely more innovative in terms of menu offerings (such as their game tasting with venison, elk and wild boar), and the quality overall is slightly better as well - so it gets my vote.

    Did Camelot when it was $50/$100. Wasn't impressed. Always go to Gold Coast or Orleans for their prime rib. About half the cost, twice the value.

    True about GC and Orleans but I always consider cab fare in the price when I have to go off strip. If you are not going there for something else, you need to add $20 for round trip fare and tip to the price.

    I did them both when they were $150, a couple times. Since then, We have used Tender for $75 a couple times because it's not hard for my wife and I to rack up a $150 bill. But, we enjoyed both equally, not the best Steak houses in the City, but still good.

    I consider these one of the better rewards offered.

    I've used both awards. Tender at Luxor is better for sure, and like dave said is one of the better myVegas rewards out there. I've had better steaks at Casino Royale Outback than the one I got at Camelot.

    We have used the Camelot reward twice and have been happy both times. Service was great both times as well.

    At ate Tender 3 weeks ago with the MyVegas reward. Not sure its worth it without it but I'd HIGHLY recommend it with it. Everything we had was very, very good.

    For Tender, I don't see the standard "one reward for each player" comment you see on other rewards. Does this mean, I can cash two (or three)Tender rewards at one dinner if I am with a group of people. It states "dining reward" Does this mean Alcohol not included?

    While it can be used more than once, I doubt they'd allow two on the same meal.
