One of the oldest steakhouses in Las Vegas, The Golden Steer Steakhouse has been slicing, simmering, and serving rib-sticking menu items for patrons since 1958. Mouth-bones can warm up with starters, including fried calamari ($12) and toasted ravioli with marinara sauce ($10), or take a warm bath in a soup, such as the lobster bisque, made with Maine lobster ($12). After cleansing palates with heartwarming conversation or uncontrollable drool, patrons can fill mouths with succulent protein slabs made with USDA Prime aged, corn-fed beef, including a 20-ounce bone-in rib eye ($39), a 16-ounce New York strip ($40), or an 8-ounce petite filet mignon ($36). Canines can take a breather while molars graze on vibrant vegetable sides, such as fresh broccoli ($8), asparagus with hollandaise sauce ($11), or humiliatingly creamed spinach ($9).
The Golden Steer Steakhouse houses a large Victorian bar and classically colored burgundy booths that have hosted the backsides of notables such as Mayor Oscar Goodman and the nefarious characters of Casino. Sip a glass of wine from racing icon Mario Andretti's signature collection while admiring the interior, which reflects nostalgic times when music legends such as Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. used to stop in for a hearty dinner to start debauchery-fueled nights of drinking chamomile tea and knitting."
The Golden Steer Steakhouse
From the dark-wood paneling to the burgundy carpeting's oft-traveled fibers, hints of vintage Vegas thrive inside The Golden Steer Steakhouse. Since 1958, the restaurant has been serving prime rib and new york strips under the noses of anticipant diners—which many times have been affixed to the faces of American icons, including Frank Sinatra, Joe DiMaggio, Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe. The long-tenured staff members add life to the legends, passing down stories at tables and behind the spacious bar, where a Victorian-inspired ambiance offers a tip of the fedora to San Francisco's Gold Rush era. The restaurant's famous cuts of prime rib and new york strip steaks earned it the Las Vegas Review Journal's title of Best Las Vegas Steakhouse in 2010 and 2013. During the spring of 2012, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman officially named April 7 Golden Steer Day, honoring the steak house's residency in Sin City. In 2013, Zagat recommends this steakhouse above all other steakhouses in Vegas.
