Andiamo Steakhouse

There was a lot of excitement for some new blood on Fremont Street when Fitzgerald’s was reopened as The D in late 2012. While much of the attention was focused on the casino and hotel, steak lovers were looking to the first Las Vegas outpost of Michigan favorite Andiamo Steakhouse. Great steak should be expected but they have some of the best seafood that you’re going to find anywhere in Las Vegas. The service is similar to top notch service you’d expect at a steakhouse on the Vegas Strip. The best part is that all of this comes with a smaller check than you’d pay on the Vegas Strip.

Hugo’s Cellar

Hugo’s Cellar is one of the most famed but not famous restaurants in Las Vegas. Walking into the restaurant is almost like stepping into a time machine when it comes to atmosphere, decor and service. Hugo’s has an environment that you won’t elsewhere in Las Vegas. This is a cellar(ish) concept and you actually walk down a few stairs into the restaurant. You are then walked to your table by a host wearing a tuxedo. All women are greeted with a long-stemmed red rose. In true old Vegas fashion every salad is prepared table side. You’re visiting Hugo’s Cellar for a great meal but you’ll walk away with the memory of a unique atmosphere you may never experience anywhere else.

Oscar’s Steakhouse

Filet at Oscar’s Steakhouse

This steakhouse at the Plaza is heavily influenced by former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman. Located on the second floor of the Plaza this restaurant has views looking into the Fremont Street Experience across the street. Everything from design of the restaurant to the “broads” (the restaurant’s tagline is “Beef, Booze, Broads”) to the dishes is a throwback to old Las Vegas. The food and service is what you’d expect expect from a high end steakhouse. Start your steak adventures with the Filet Mignon and spread your steak wings as you return for more.

Vic & Anthony’s

Vic & Anthony’s comes at you with the atmosphere you’d expect from a traditional high end steakhouse. Don’t let the fact that this is a chain restaurant dissuade you from enjoying one of the best steaks you’ll find in Downtown Las Vegas. The steaks may be delicious but the most talked about dish on the menu might be the duck fat potatoes. It’s true, duck fat makes everything better. Beyond the quality of the food, one of the things that really sets Vic & Anthony’s is their Distinctive Dining Deal. This $50 3 course (plus individual side order) prix fixe menu is only available in their Las Vegas and Atlantic City locations.

Triple George

Technically Triple George isn’t a high end steakhouse but they sure do have some great steak dishes. This is a San Francisco style bar, grill and chophouse. The difference in type of restaurants shouldn’t cloud the fact that Triple George has some of the best steaks in Downtown Las Vegas. The steaks are grilled and you can taste the smoke and char from the process. You have a nice selection of cocktails and wine since Triple George is also a bar. Since this isn’t considered a high end steakhouse, you’re not tagged with high end steakhouse prices – just great steak.

    You can’t mention steak in Downtown Las Vegas without mentioning the Second Street Grill located in the Fremont. It is by far one of the best around although very few people even know it’s there.

    I have done Hugos for years for customers. They like the change from the traditional high end.

    At Vic and Anthonys, do not miss the sauted mushroom side.

    Although Hugo’s has been my favorite Vegas steakhouse for many years, Binion’s comes in at a close second. I didn’t even see Binion’s mentioned on the list? I will take Binion’s any day over Oscar’s for sure.

    I’ve been to Andiamo and Triple George Grill love them both. Andiamo comes with a bigger price tag but we’ll worth it. The difference between the two is the service at Triple George was more my style professional and attentive yet not too stuffy more laid back atmosphere. My server ftom Hawaii couldn’t have had more personality. He told my wife and I the history of the restaurant and alot about downtown old and new definetly go back to both places.

    Since I moved to Las Vegas in 1980 I have eaten at a lot of our local steak houses in and out of casinos. Hugo’s Cellar has the best atmosphere hands down. The California Hotel’s steakhouse Redwood Bar and Grill, has the best Chateubriand I have ever had. I have eaten at Oscar’s on more than one occasion. Even before it was Oscar’s. Center Stage I think it was called before. I have never had a good experience yet!!! However, I have had the distinct pleasure to dine at Triple George on many occasions since they opened. Let me just say this- they ARE by far the best well rounded restaurant. Fabulous food, ambiance and great service!!! The general manager even remembers your name. If you want the best bar drinks in town, Triple George is your place to be!!!
