A+ Dinner at the Saltgrass Steakhouse in Laughlin

Review of the Saltgrass Steakhouse

Laughlin, Nevada

Visited at the end of July 2013

We haven't been to the Saltgrass Steakhouse, located in the Golden Nugget in Laughlin, in about a year. One evening we found ourselves choosing between Bubba Gump Shrimp and The Saltgrass.  The line was long at Gumps and there was no wait at the Saltgrass.  Easy choice, and one that turned out to be a very good one.

It was very refreshing to get wonderful service, both from the hostess and our server.  Very professional, accurate and enjoyable.  Sometimes this can be rare in some of the Laughlin Casino restaurants.   We placed our drink orders and browsed the menu.  We were disappointed that that Ahi Tuna appetizer was no longer on the menu.  Had this last time we visited and loved it.   So instead we went with the Deep Fried Mushrooms with a border sauce, and the Range Rattlers (jalapeno peppers stuffed with shrimp and cheese). Both were very good, we highly recommend them.   Almost made us forget about the missing Ahi Tuna.

 One in our party decided to try the "Early Bird Special".  This is a Steak (Sirloin) and Shrimp special for $12.99 available from 4-6PM.   It comes with a mashed potato, but no salad.  You can add a side salad for a few dollars extra.   A side salad comes with the regular steak dinners at full price.  Dressings are homemade from scratch, the blue cheese was excellent.

The other two of us ordered the center cut Filet Mignon and the New York Strip.  Both were very good cuts of steak, cooked perfectly.   The Filet was melt in your mouth tender and the Strip had a nice seasoning on it.   Even the sirloin steak in the Special was called very good this time.  A couple other times it had been hit or miss with the quality of the sirloin.  That was why 2 of us chose the other steaks.   Prices on the Filet and NY Strip are high 20's but each comes with the salad or soup, choice and choice of side.  For the quality it was a fair price.

The dinner comes with a Shiner Bock Beer bread and tasty honey butter.

Desserts sounded very tempting, especially the Cobbler but we had to pass this time.

Overall this was one of the most enjoyable dinners we have had in Laughlin in a long time.  Wonderful service, good food, and a nice atmosphere.  The Saltgrass has now jumped to our 2nd favorite place to get a steak in Laughlin.  (Go here to see which one is our favorite).  *Be aware usually the Saltgrass is usually much busier (this was mid week) and louder, and  longer waits for a table, especially on weekends.   Though if you have a Landrys Select card you get priority seating.  

If you are looking for a good early bird special or a good steak give the Saltgrass a try.   This is a link to their menu (as of July 2013) always this is subject to change.  

The restaurant has a nice view of the Colorado River and is located right off the River Walk inside the Golden Nugget Laughlin.
