Golden Steer, Las Vegas:
"Another tried-and-true restaurant worth visiting is Golden Steer Steakhouse. The 58-year-old establishment, on West Sahara Avenue brings a distinctive flair to town.
"Who else has booths where Elvis and Sammy [Davis Jr.] sat?" asks maître d' Mark Steele.
At Golden Steer, servers appear tableside to prepare Bananas Foster the traditional way: f!ambé.
"Most restaurants in such close vicinity of the Strip literally cater to 99 percent tourists, while we are about half locals and half tourists," Steele says. "Tourists who come in for their first time tell me that the Steer was referred to them by a local cabbie, bartender, concierge or valet parker."
It occupies a special place in Steele's heart - and in Las Vegas' culinary history.
"Golden Steer is special to me because I am a Las Vegas native, and I have grown up with the restaurant," he says. "I was here, running around as a kid late nights. Never did I think I would be part of the history one day as the restaurant is in a major resurgence right now. Proud to be here."

America's Most Historic Steakhouses

January 30th, 2017

by Jonah Flicker

Golden Steer, Las Vegas:
"Las Vegas' Golden Steer Steakhouse may not be the oldest steakhouse in America (it opened in 1958), but it is certainly a classic. It has been a hangout for mobsters and celebrities over the years, including Sammy Davis Jr. who was welcomed there when he wasn't at other establishments because of his race. "

10 Best Restaurants Of 2016

Decenber 29th, 2016

by Larry Olmsted

Golden Steer, Las Vegas:
"At the other end of the Vegas historical spectrum is the city’s oldest steakhouse, a free-standing spot that is one of the rare popular restaurants not in a hotel. Despite an offbeat location, the Steer had its best years ever in 2015 and 2016, thanks in part to a growing retro appreciation trend in Las Vegas and in part to the sudden growth of the North Strip area where it is located, across the street from the SLS and new W and literally next door – like ten feet – from the just opened Lucky Dragon casino hotel.

Nevada: The Golden Steer Steakhouse
"It's Las Vegas’ oldest steakhouse, and a veritable who’s-who of diners have sat in its classic red leather booths. We’re talking Elvis, Ali, Sinatra. Hell, even Joe DiMaggio had his own booth here. But this is no fusty museum: The place has hardly been hotter than it is right now. The secret? Steaks that make you think that you’ve died and gone to heaven at first bite."

10 Best Steakhouses in the World

September 29th, 2016

by Andrew Harper

"Serious carnivores will go to the ends of the earth to seek out a perfectly marbled, expertly seared steak. And so, it seems, will we. We've visited the best butchers in France, reacquainted ourselves with the idea that everything (steaks included) is bigger in Texas, eaten at celebrated parrillas of Argentina, and enjoyed the elegant ambiance of metropolitan steakhouses. We've tried dry-aged and wet-aged, beef from corn-fed cattle in the U.S., and grass-fed pure-bred organic cattle raised on small farms in Europe. The cuts may vary from country to country, but these 10 steakhouses — our favorites in the world — all have one thing in common: They are uncommonly superb."

Las Vegas' Oldest Steakhouse Still Charms

August 18th, 2016

"Stepping into the Steer is like stepping into a museum. It has an odd location in a slightly seedy strip mall just off Las Vegas Boulevard, but back in 1958 when it opened, many top Vegas restaurants were standalone buildings outside of the hotels, a paradigm that has largely changed. For decades, eating here required more effort and a special trip, yet the Steer has not only survived, it has thrived, and the last few years have been record ones."

Dine in the Mob Room

April 10th, 2016

by Laura Downey

"For a hearty meal with some juicy history, make a dinner reservation at Golden Steer. Known as Las Vegas’ oldest steakhouse, the restaurant has been a hit with locals since its inception in 1958. Be sure to sit in the Mob Room—it comes complete with a hidden door that leads to the back alley. To date, the door is now covered up, but in the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, mobsters would use this entrance to access the dining room, and of course, to close important business deals."

"A great steak is fairly simple. You get a really good cut, season it properly, cook it just right, and, ta-da!, you’ve got yourself a great steak. Knowing that, it’s strange that there aren’t more great steakhouses. Next time you’re craving a cut, forget the hunting and just try one of these. Here are the 15 best steakhouses you need to visit at least once.
After you crush the blackjack table, head over to the Golden Steer, Sin City’s oldest steakhouse, to dine like Elvis and Sinatra. The legendary steakhouse has been serving up meats to the who’s who of the world since 1958.

The Best of Las Vegas: The Mob, Martinis, and Meat

February 9, 2016

by Melinda Sheckells

"Golden Steer Steakhouse - Frank, Sammy, and Dean all still have their tables at the Golden Steer Steakhouse, which some say is Las Vegas’s oldest continually-operating restaurant. After you enjoy a delicious cocktail at the bar, you slide into your booth, which is adorned with photos of the celebrities who once claimed it. As you take in the scene, your eyes are immediately drawn to a server making a tableside Caesar salad from scratch. When it comes to ordering your main dish, you don’t have to think twice. Vegas is a steak town and the Golden Steer Steakhouse has been called the best of the best. You decide to order shrimp scampi as an accompaniment to your meat and top off your meal with the Bananas Foster, a show of sugary delight capped by a large plume of fire. On your way out, you ask to see the backroom, which used to be a dining ground for the famous mobsters who sought out its private entrance."

10 Great Las Vegas Steakhouses
"Las Vegas’ oldest steakhouse has served a Who’s Who of visitors from Sinatra to Ali to Elvis - DiMaggio had his own booth. But it has never been more popular than it is right now, and its long obscure North Strip location is suddenly hot, around the corner from the new SLS Casino, MGM Resorts’ Village, and an ongoing construction boom. In a setting of dark wood, red leather banquettes and Wild West art, the tuxedoed staff serves up big steaks and classic starters like Alaskan king crab cocktail, crab cakes, escargot and fresh oysters. The signature non-steak specialty is fresh Dover Sole, deftly deboned table-side. At a price point below the Strip’s many celebrity chef steakhouses, the Golden Steer throws in value along with great food and a trip back in time to Vintage Vegas."

Livin' Local: Vintage Vegas

by J. Tyge O'Donnell

"Opened in 1958, Golden Steer is one of the oldest restaurants in Las Vegas and quite possibly the best steakhouse in town. It's a stone's throw away from The Westgate Elvis exhibit and can be found just west of The Strip on Sahara Avenue.
The bar and dining rooms are steeped in Vegas history with booths dedicated to the many stars and icons that frequented the establishment over the years. The two larger (and highly sought after) booths in the corners pay homage to Elvis and Sinatra, while former Mayor Oscar Goodman's booth is appropriately located just outside the private dining room where the who's-who of mobsters used to nosh and talk "bid-ness". The place reeks of classic Vegas, romantically dark, full of artwork and nostalgic items that have been added over the years.
Even though chicken, veal and seafood are on the menu, for all things holy and for the love of Frank, order a steak. Get the table-side created Caesar salad and a few appetizers as accompaniments (I suggest the escargot and toasted ravioli), and you'll be in gut-busting bliss. There are plenty of specialty cocktails to choose from, along with old and new world wines. I opted for their newly added (albeit retro) Moscow Mule, served in a traditional, shiny copper mug.
And there ya go ...you just spent the better part of a day entertaining your visitors with a well-rounded dose of vintage Las Vegas! All it took was a little nostalgia here, some era-evoking music there,a classy dinner with a smidgen of mobsters thrown in. ..and I bet driving your "guests" out past the city limits to the cold and barren desert never even crossed your mind! Why? Because, well, that would have been a little too old"

"The Golden Steer has a huge following among longtime Las Vegans, due in large part to the fact it’s been open since 1958 and some members of the staff have been there for more than 40 years. The plush red booths and paintings of cattle on the walls are classic Sin City steakhouse staples, as are most of the menu items. But be careful: This classic joint in a small, nondescript strip mall just west of the Strip can get very pricey very quickly."

A City-by-City Guide to Frank Sinatra's Favorite Haunts. The crooner's 100th birthday would have been today.
"Serving carnivores since 1958, the Golden Steer maintains its vintage steakhouse ambiance—red wallpaper, leather booths, waiters in jackets and bow ties making Caesar salads and bananas foster table-side. Some still use Frank's favored method for Caesar dressing—lemon juice instead of vinegar.
'Initially, it was Sammy Davis, Jr. who first brought Sinatra and Dean Martin into the restaurant. They would eat dinner before heading over to the Sands to perform with the Rat Pack,' says Dr. Michael Signorelli, owner of the Golden Steer, adding that the Steer has maintained Frank, Dean and Sammy's favorite booths: 'Where else can you dine where they dined, sit in the same seats and be served the same menu?'

"...for our money, this classic Old Vegas steakhouse that was once used as THE comp location by casinos for their best customers is the move. The steaks are as good as any on a reality show and the joint has seen the likes of Elvis, Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and every other real celebrity who made Las Vegas cool come through the door. The off-Strip gem is a Vegas staple, and despite the influx of newer, trendier places around town, still stands up as the best pure steakhouse in Nevada."

Dine His Way
"Booths 20, 21 and 22. Three of the most famous booths in Las Vegas sit inside the Golden Steer Steakhouse, a back-in-the-day haunt for celebs including The Rat Pack. Booths were assigned to its regulars - Sammy Davis (Booth 20), Dean Martin (21) and Frank Sinatra (22). And, in honor of what would have been Sinatra's 100th birthday, the restaurant, established in 1958, is offering guests a chance to dine like Ol' Blue Eyes. Through Dec. 31, "Frank's Menu," based on what he ordered during his visits, includes clams casino and New York strip. Guest booking a reservation sit in Booth 22 and receive a commemorative Zippo lighter. The menu is $100. per person."

The Golden Steer Celebrates Frank Sinatra's Birthday As One Of His Favorite Spots
"The Golden Steer, which calls itself Las Vegas’ longest-running steakhouse and has been open since 1958, is celebrating Sinatra’s 100th birthday with a special three-course dinner consisting of the Chairman’s favorite dishes—clams casino, a medium-rare New York strip served with tomatoes and garlic in white wine sauce and bananas Foster flambéed table-side. You’ll also drink Jack Daniel’s the way he did—three fingers, two ice cubes—and the $100 experience (available through the end of the year) also includes a ticket to the Mob Museum and a Golden Steer Zippo lighter with Sinatra’s birthday engraved."

Best Las Vegas Steakhouses

by Lark Ellen Gould

"Fine dining in Vegas cut its teeth on the concept of gourmet rooms. Every casino had a gourmet steakhouse for its players and big spenders. The meals were comped and served by hovering waiters in tuxedos who tossed salads table side and served sizzling desserts. A few of these holdovers still linger. Hugo’s Cellar at the Four Queens Hotel and Casino downtown and the Golden Steer Steakhouse, between the Strip and downtown Las Vegas, still cater to the old guard in a city where, not too long ago, everyone knew each other by first names."

Sinatra, born Dec. 12, 1915 in Hoboken, N.J., was a fixture in Las Vegas for decades, first as a member of the famed Rat Pack and later as a solo performer. Here are some of the places that will pay tribute to the Chairman of the Board."

CNN - Eatocrocy
"The Rat Pack were regulars, so the Golden Steer oughta do just fine by you. The joint's been tossing table-side Caesar salads and setting bananas Foster ablaze since 1958. While it may not be as haute and happening as the celebrity chef-helmed steakhouses on the Strip, it more than makes up for that with the help of a seasoned staff, faithful renditions of warhorse dishes like escargots de Bourgogne, oysters Rockefeller and Lyonnaise potatoes, as well as sturdy pours of classic highballs.
The steaks might not quite match up to the restaurant's claim of being the "best on Earth," but they're perfectly serviceable (and compared to their on-Strip offerings, quite reasonably priced) and besides, you're there for the company. Clink glasses with Frank, Dean, Sammy and all their ritzy pals and savor a last chance to experience a style of Vegas swank that may not be around for much longer."
