Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel is one of downtown’s most historic spots.
Not only has it been a favorite of visitors who like to do a little gambling, but the steakhouse located on the 24th floor offers a spectacular view of the valley. The antique look will remind you of a place you may have visited in the very early days of Vegas, when everything was locally-owned and everyone knew your name.
The menu is filled with all-American steakhouse favorites. For instance, an impressive shrimp cocktail is part of the appetizer fare. But you can also get Shrimp Scampi ($16.99) that features succulent shellfish sautéed in white wine, bell peppers, garlic and fresh herbs.
