    A friend of mine and his brother are taking their father out for his birthday. Any advice for a reasonably-priced steak place for 3 guys ? Thanks for your help.

    In a casino on the strip, I'd have to recommend Center Cut at the Flamingo.

    A more expensive venue would be Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris.

    I have reviews of both (with pictures) in the Restaurant section.
     
    Scheduled, but cancellable
    Well, Canada and Massachusetts are closed, back to Lake Tahoe

    I agree on Strip House it is one of our top choices for having our top meal however it is not really moderate priced, IMHO. Your wife is right on about the bone-in rib eye' that is my favorite with the Bordelaise sauce and Shell loves the filet. Lots to look forward to in the coming trips. The Center Cut is just a notch below but still better than most steakhouses outside of Vegas.

    Try the distinctive dining menu at Vic and Anthony's at the Nugget...salad, filet , side for each (and they are sharable!) and dessert = $52..but yo have to ask for the menu!

    Also...Charlie Palmer Steak has cut of the week...it comes out on Monday of each week...salaad, main, sides and dessert with wine pairings is around $50, although the main is not always a steak, so you have to check

    I have done both and they are great meals!

    Yep, reasonable is a concept with a foundation firmly in pudding. You'll get everything here from Ellis Island because "reasonable" means "cheap" on up to Fancy Name Steakery because "reasonable" means "best."

    A stalwart remains the Steak House at Circus Circus. The meat quality is there, it is not a la carte, and the price lands between horsewhipped semi-protein and don't-pay-the-mortgage-this-month. I also endorse the cut-o' at Palmer if that cut is one that appeals to you; this has been our special steakery for a long time, too. So many great experiences there.

    I always do this because they give you a genuine MEAL for your moderate price. Great bread, salad, a potato, AND the cut of steak (bone in ribeye, medium rare plus, in my case). At many other places, you just get a slab of meat plopped down on a plate and a waiter who doesn't bother respecting you because you're only parting with $80 instead of $180. But at Circus Circus you get a full compliment, plus drink, tax, and tip, and you can keep that to $100 if you don't get too thirsty.

    I "third" THE Steakhouse at Circus Circus.
    I also endorse the Distinctive Dining Deal at Vic and Anthony's inside the Golden Nugget.

    One other option is Primarily Prime Rib at South Point (assuming transportation is available). They primarily have prime rib (though they do have a New York Strip on the menu). Nothing is over $30. They are also closed Monday/Tuesday, so keep that in mind, too.

    I also enjoy Andiamos downtown. One of my favorite steak and Italian places and I think is pretty reasonable for Vegas. Also service is top notch.

    Charlie Palmer Cut of the Week would be a winner if the week looks good.

    Not a steakhouse per se, but Mon Ami Gabi would be an under the radar choice. It is mid strip, has a nice view if you sit outside, and has a variety of cuts for Steak Frites. Good compromise of quality vs value compared to the high end steakhouses.

    After going to Vegas since 1983 Michelle and I still have not tried this. We have not walked into Circus Circus in probably 20 years but if there is one person for food I trust it's Ken. Been reading and writing in threads with him forever . Will also try it someday, but when our food is comped hard to make it a priority..............Rick

    Put me down as another fan of the Steakhouse at Circus-Circus! It's an absolute jewel in an otherwise quirky property

    Should you decide to venture "off-strip", please allow me to recommend 35 Steaks and Martini's inside the Hard Rock. Outstanding food in an upscale atmosphere that NOT pretentious (same great music that's throughout the property). The female staff there are stunning!!! The Hard Rock has a new 7,000+ sq. ft. steakhouse under construction from the son's of the fella who founded the Morton's chain and built the Las Vegas Hard Rock as well, but until that debuts, 35 Steaks and Martini's is still the go-to steak joint there.

    Downtown, I'm a fan of Hugo's (4 Queens) and Andiamo (The D). Been to Hugo's many times... solid old-world Vegas feel and fine food. Only been to Andiamo once, but I'd return in a heartbeat... LOVED it

    I can't recall a Vegas dining experience where airs/ignore and price were part of the equation.

    I've related this experience several times: I did the seven-course tasting at Commander's solo. They gave me as prime of a table as everyone else. They didn't resent that I was taking up space that could've been used by several (producing many more hundreds of coin). They were engaging. That is a specific example at a rare place -- SO sorry when they pulled out. I've eaten all over Vegas, solo (paired, in groups) over a two-decade period, at every level of joint; hundreds and hundreds of meals in total, scores and scores solo.

    I've just never felt that the number of $$ on the menu, the size of the dining party, was part of the matrix. Sure, I've had some shitty servers or moments at the swank joints, and I've had some real cretins at the mom-and-pop places. The nexus is people having bad days or making bad career choices.

    Depending on price range etc, I have all felt I get good value at Gallager's in NYNY. It also has a very nice, casual atmosphere as well. Prime rib is excellent, if that is what you like.

    Eaten in Vic and Anthony's a couple of times as well. No complaints.

    Bob,
    You have had some excellent replies already.

    Where is your friend staying? That may help narrow the choices a bit.

    They are at the MGM, although with Lyft and Uber, location should not be a big issue.

    Thanks for all the replies. I passed along the info and now the ball is in their court. One name I also like is Tender ... assuming you have the myVegas $75 reward (which they don't).

    They should have plenty of choices. The Charlie Palmer Cut of the Week suggestion was strong. I have also found that many of the MGM restaurant and steakhouses will have tasting or early theater prix fixe menus that can be a good value (although they are hard to find with the Mlife website updates).

    Let us know where they end up going!
