The Steakhouse at Tropicana Laughlin
The inside of the Steakhouse is now decorated in softer tones and the old Tropicana train motif is history. The overall look and feel is nice for a dinner out, or even a special occasion. Both booths and tables are available. We do, however, miss the high back chairs they used to have.
An open kitchen at the back of the Steakhouse allows diners a glimpse into the preparation of the steaks, seafood, and other items on the new menu.
Even though Chef Cole Sheridan has changed the menu, many of the popular items we remember
still make their appearance on it.
Even though it was a busy night, we were seated promptly in spite of not having a reservation. Reservations are recommended.
The table side salad cart service with a choice of toppings allows you to choose what you would like on your starter salad. Just pick what you want from a wooden paddle they hand you. The server puts your salad together at your table. Everything was fresh off the cart.
Other salads are also available on the menu.

Appetizer - In the past we have had the Shrimp Cocktail, which seems to be actually called Chilled Shrimp on the menu. That was very good but this time we wanted to try something different. We chose the Lemon Scented Crab Dip ($8) served with a flame broiled baguette.
This appetizer was very different but very good. The portion of Crab Dip was big enough to serve several people, however, there was much more dip than baguette. While we enjoyed it, on future visits we will probably try something else again.
Main Courses - We went for a Steak so that is what we both ordered.
The New York Strip Steak (pictured below, 12oz, $36) was cooked a perfect medium. Overall it was a nice steak, except for one ounce or so on the end of it which was a bit tough. It should of been trimmed.

The Filet Mignon (7 oz., $38) was even better than the New York Strip. It was cooked perfectly too and very good. Given a choice between the two, the Filet would be the top pick. They also offer a Porterhouse, and Ribeye Steak.
Creme Brulee - very creamy and light. Topped with fresh berries
Other desserts are also available.
Besides Steak there are other options such as Sea Bass, Chicken, Salmon, a Surf and Turf Trio, and Twin Lobster Tails. See the current menu here (PDF file):

The Steakhouse also has an extensive wine list to choose from.
Our service was very good and attentive, except at the very end of the dinner. Our waiter seemed to have disappeared off the floor for about 10 minutes after he dropped off the check. They were very busy but we did end up sitting there for a bit too long waiting for him to come back and pick it up.
The current hours are
Fri-Sat (4 pm-10 pm)
Sun, Wed, Thurs (4 pm-9 pm)
