After years of one high-priced fancy restaurant after another taking up all the room in Vegas casinos, the new trend is toward the more affordable, more casual eatery like this—a fantastic comfort-food kitchen with a wide-ranging menu and a comfy, at-home vibe. Start with the baked meatballs in a tangy red gravy or the just exactly spicy enough Buffalo wings with creamy blue cheese dressing for the table. Then be prepared to keep sharing your main courses of delectable dishes like 18-hour, slow-roasted prime rib with a roasted garlic crust, zesty meatloaf on a cushion of mashed potatoes, steaks, seafood, sandwiches, New Orleans–style muffalettas (including one that serves six), burgers, pasta, and so much more. Be sure to save room for sides like mac and cheese with ham hocks, and the desserts like their simply heavenly cheesecake, served with a healthy dollop of cherry compote. A full bar with craft-cocktail level concoctions and the friendliest, most efficient service we have experienced in Vegas anywhere make this an all-round success by every measure we can think of.
