Golden Steer Steakhouse

Golden Steer Prime Rib

Price Range: $$$$

The Golden Steer is a Vegas institution. Since 1958, The Golden Steer Steakhouse has been Las Vegas’ iconic, most loved, and longest-running steakhouse.

It’s not just the food that’s worth coming for, but also the atmosphere. Somehow, even through multiple rounds of renovations, this restaurant still retains the ambiance of the “Old Las Vegas” days when Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. were but a few of their regular customers.

The prime rib is available in two mouthwatering cuts, The English Cut (a 10oz option) and the Diamond Lil Cut (a more substantial 18oz portion). Accompanying the prime rib cuts are thoughtfully selected sides, providing a well-rounded and satisfying meal. And if you’re wondering about whether it’ll be cooked right, these guys have mastered the medium and medium-rare orders!

The prime rib at Golden Steer might not be the best value in town, but a few things are for sure — you’re going to get excellent cuts of meat, excellent service, and a very unique ambiance that’s hard to find at any other steakhouse in town.

Please note that Golden Steer is only open during dinner hours.

PRO TIP: Try and make reservations way in advance if you want to eat here!

Lawry’s The Prime Rib

Prime Rib at Lawry's The Prime Rib

Price Range: $$$

Lawry’s The Prime Rib stands as one of the go-to institutions for people craving a GOOD slab of prime rib. If you’ve ever been to the world-famous House Of Prime Rib in San Francisco, Lawry’s is similar to that — cozy yet large, nostalgic atmosphere, and prime rib cooked to perfection.

The pièce de résistance is Lawry’s famous Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef, masterfully carved tableside from gleaming silver carts, showcasing a culinary tradition that has delighted diners for over three decades.

On the menu, you’ll find a variety prime rib cuts, from the California Cut (for lighter appetites) to the Beef Bowl Double Cut (double-sized bone-in for the biggest of eaters). Each prime rib dinner is accompanied by Lawry’s Famous Spinning Bowl Salad, Buttery Mashed Idaho Potatoes, Classic Yorkshire Pudding, and the signature Lawry’s Whipped Cream Horseradish. They also have creamed spinach and creamed corn too.

Since they specialize in prime rib, you already know that it’s going to be cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection. The au jus is also super flavorful!

While Lawry’s is renowned for its steak entrees, the menu extends a welcoming embrace to seafood enthusiasts too. You can choose from delicacies like the Salmon Rockefeller, Trio of Lobster Tails, and the iconic Lawry’s Seafood Tower, offering a symphony of flavors to complement the steakhouse’s rich heritage.

PRO TIP: If you come during the holidays, you may witness Christmas carolers roaming the floor and serenading guests during your meal!

Hugo’s Cellar

Price Range: $$$$

Hugo’s Cellar is an old-school steakhouse in the Four Queens Casino in downtown Las Vegas. This hidden gem of a spot is a synonym for romantic dining in Las Vegas, known for its exquisite service and charming ambiance with brick-lined walls and deep comfortable booths.

The restaurant is right in the middle of the casino floor where you’ll have to descend into their “cellar” using stairs or an elevator. Once you arrive, they give roses to the ladies of the party — it’s what they’re known for! Every server is also dressed up as if we were back in the 50s era!

Hugo’s Cellar is well-known for its hefty portions of prime rib, offering two cuts: the 16-ounce Cellar cut and the substantial 24-ounce Hugo’s cut. All entrées come with traditional cheese lavosh, fresh baked bread, Hugo’s famous table-side salad (one of the best salads you’ll EVER eat), and a choice of vegetable sides.

The prime rib here is both tender and succulent. I recommend getting the fingerling potatoes as your side, they are way too delicious to not try!

For those with a sweet tooth, you’ll get pampered here with complimentary fruit dipped in chocolate and whipped cream. The dessert selection includes scrumptious pastries, luscious cakes, and specialty treats like Bananas Foster or Cherries Jubilee, prepared tableside for a classic Las Vegas dining experience!

Please note that Hugo’s Cellar is only open during dinner hours.

Top of Binion’s Steakhouse

Price Range: $$$$

Top of Binion’s Steakhouse offers a nostalgic and romantic dining experience on the 24th floor of Binion’s, boasting vintage Vegas décor, unparalleled views, and impeccable service. Owned by Terry Caudill, the restaurant provides a step back in time while maintaining a contemporary appeal.

Top of Binion Steakhouse is renowned for serving hefty portions of prime rib, slow-roasted in a rock salt crust with a blend of fresh herbs and spices. The prime rib is available in two generous cuts: the 16-ounce Petit Cut and the 24-ounce Benny’s Cut.

Accompanied by au jus and horseradish, the prime rib is served with a selection of sides, including fresh vegetables and a choice of loaded baked potato, risotto, steakhouse mac ‘n’ cheese, or Yukon garlic mashed potatoes.

Please note that Top of Binion’s is only open during dinner hours. And sure, their website looks outdated and clunky, but that’s probably because they’re too busy busting out delicious prime ribs instead!

Primarily Prime Rib at South Point

Primarily Prime Rib Las Vegas

Price Range: $$

When you get tired of the normal Vegas restaurant prices but still want a satisfying meal, Primarily Prime Rib is the spot.

Drive away from the Las Vegas Strip and you’ll eventually get to South Point Casino (our favorite hotel for late-night steak and eggs!). You’ll find Primarily Prime Rib here, a haven for prime rib lovers seeking a satisfying and affordable dining experience.

The menu boasts a selection of five prime rib cuts, dry-aged to ensure tenderness and slow-roasted to perfection. The South Point Cut (a popular 10oz option) is $24.95 on the lower range, while The Cowboy Cut (a hefty 26oz double-cut with the bone) will run you $48.95.

Each prime rib entrée is thoughtfully accompanied by a choice of Prime Salad, Spinach Salad, or a Cup of Soup, along with options for Baked or Mashed Potatoes, and Seasonal Vegetables.

For a unique twist, you can also opt for the indulgent Prime Rib Chili, a house-made creation simmered with diced prime rib and red beans, topped with grated cheddar and jack cheese, chopped onions, and served in a tortilla cup with a dollop of sour cream.

PRO TIP: South Point also has a buffet, called Garden Buffet, with prime rib on the menu. Don’t be fooled into thinking you’re going to get prime rib that’s Primarily Prime Rib-quality. It’s most definitely NOT. Skip the buffet! From my personal experience, it wasn’t worth the money.

Address: 977 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV 89183

Jerry’s Famous Coffee Shop At Jerry’s Nugget Casino

Jerry’s Famous Coffee Shop Prime Rib

Price Range: $$

Located just one mile away from Downtown Las Vegas is Jerry’s Nugget Casino, home to Jerry’s Famous Coffee Shop! This spot is a local’s favorite when it comes to prime rib deals.

Unlike other places that have prime rib specials one day a week, you can get the prime rib special every day of the week at Jerry’s.

They offer two cuts of prime rib — the English Cut Prime Rib for $22.99 or the Thick Cut Prime Rib for $46.99. Your entree will be served with horseradish, your choice of potato or full ear of corn, and your choice of soup or salad.

If you happen to go on a Friday and like clam chowder, you’re in luck because that’s the soup of the day! Their house salad is also a surprisingly yummy option.

Address: 1821 Las Vegas Boulevard, North, North Las Vegas, NV 89030

Village Pub at Ellis Island Casino and Brewery

Village Pub Cafe Prime Rib Ellis Island
The King Cut at Village Pub

Price Range: $$

Ellis Island is known for its amazing food deals. In terms of prime rib, you’ll want to head over to the Village Pub restaurant — they have a King Cut Prime Rib for 26.99. This meal is essentially a slow-roasted prime rib, served with au jus and garlic green beans.

But if you’d like to level up your prime rib dinner, they offer one more tier in the steak game — the Double Cut Prime Rib. At 32 oz., this goliath of a meal is a not-so-well-kept secret that your server will be happy to help you indulge in. Just ask them about it!

They also have a Prime Rib French Dip for $14.99, made up of shaved prime rib dipped in hot au jus, piled high on a toasted roll, and served with your choice of steak fries or homemade coleslaw.

If you browse their promotions page, you’ll find a variety of other food promos at any given time. Here are a few that I’m seeing at the time of writing:

  • Free Famous Steak Special – Play 200 Base Points and receive a free Steak Special! Available for new Players Club members on the same gaming date as you sign up for the Players Club.
  • $9.99 Top Sirloin Steak Special – Enjoy a 10 oz. top sirloin steak served with your choice of potato or rice, garlic green beans, and homemade soup or salad. Redeem this offer with your “Play $5, Get $2” coupon, available on the kiosk when you play $5 with your Passport Players Club card.

Prime Rib Restaurants We Don’t Recommend

There are a lot of restaurants serving prime rib that we haven’t mentioned in this post, simply because there are way too many restaurants to try in Las Vegas! While we haven’t had the opportunity to try them all just yet, we have tried quite a few.

And based on our experiences, we did want to note a couple of restaurants that we tried and don’t recommend for prime rib.

  • The Steak House at the Circus Circus Hotel & Casino
  • A.Y.C.E. Buffet at The Palms
  • Garden Buffet at South Point

At all of these places, we found the prime rib to be quite dry and not worth the money. It may have just been an off night for the prime rib chef, but who knows!

And with that, we hope you found the prime rib restaurant perfect for your foodie level (and your budget)! Bon apetit!
