The Charcoal Room
This unassuming casino-hotel in the northern part of the Las Vegas suburbs may seem like an offbeat recommendation for a top steakhouse, but Station Casinos’ neighborhood spots have become adept at pleasing their regulars. The Charcoal Room has earned favor for being reliable, and for pricing its menu “significantly less” than steakhouses on the Strip.
Departing from the burgundy-and-green steakhouse stereotype, the Charcoal Room is decorated in soft rusts and golds with elements of stone and wood. The efficient, friendly service also is conducive to a clientele heavy with regulars.
Choices include Prime New York sirloins, bone-in Porterhouses and ribeyes and grass-fed filet mignons, which can be ordered with indulgent Gorgonzola fondue or served Oscar-style or au poivre. Seafood, lamb and poultry also are available, and side dishes include a particularly artful version of the steakhouse standard creamed spinach, as well as creative creations like mashed yams with cinnamon peanut lace.
