Prime Rib at the Lodge Steakhouse

Laughlin, Nevada

The Lodge Steakhouse
Laughlin River Lodge

Located on the middle level of the Laughlin River Lodge, The Lodge has been one of our favorites for a dinner in Laughin.      

We have visited many times and have noticed slight changes to the menu and prices. There has often been a Prime Rib special, going back to being as low as $9.99 a couple years ago.  

This time our server didn't volunteer the list of specials as we experienced before.  So we asked and there was a Prime Rib special. Without even asking the price, that is what all three of us ordered. 

Prime Rib Special $14
The Prime Rib didn't disappoint, it was nice cut, good sized, seasoned well, and delicious.  A side of asparagus, choice of potato, and the very full breadbasket accompanied it.  A side salad is not included and this time we didn't try one.   

Service was good and very friendly. 

The view from the Lodge is a nice one overlooking the Colorado River.  

Live music from the Lounge and Bar area was added to the atmosphere. The lounge was busy. Happy Hour appetizer and drink specials are served, Wednesday-Sunday from 4-6pm (bar and lounge only).

Drinks are served by John Roddy, who was voted Best Bartender in the 2016 Laughlin Buzz Awards. Most days there is also the live music in the corner of the lounge. 


So if you are looking for Prime Rib, or even a nice steak, consider trying the Lodge.  Our Prime Rib special was just $14. Unfortunately, we did not ask if this was a daily special or during certain times. You will have to ask or call ahead.  They used to also feature a early bird menu but we have seen no mention of that lately.   

Even regular prices are competitive and the atmosphere is nice. 

The current menu looks like this:

The current hours of The Lodge Steakhouse are:  Wednesday-Sunday, opening at 4 pm.

Gaming Control Board Recommends Matthew Laughlin

Laughlin, Nevada

The Nevada State Gaming Control Board recommended a third generation member of the Don Laughlin family, Matthew Laughlin, to be licensed as a key employee for the Riverside Resort in Laughlin.  They also approved him to be a co-trustee for the company’s controlling Donald J. Laughlin Gaming Trust.

Matthew Laughlin is a grandson, of Don Laughlin.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal (source below):

Matthew Laughlin told regulators that he was working in the food-service industry with his father when his grandfather asked him at a family Thanksgiving dinner if he was interested in the gaming business. When Matthew Laughlin said he was, he began working in several operations positions at the Riverside before learning some of the company’s management responsibilities.
