Gallagher's Steakhouse - Las Vegas, NV

When we read: Meat and potatoes with Park Avenue flare! A table at Gallagher's Steakhouse, a New York City original since 1927, guarantees you an evening with sizzle featuring only the finest dry-aged beef and fresh seafood. We were sold! The finest place to dine inside the New York New York - ooolallaaala!

I was really excited to take a picture with this menu because the New York version of Gallagher's Steakhouse is so famous! I have watched the Travel Channel review on them and it was so interesting. Established as a speakeasy during the prohibition years, Gallagher's Steak House is celebrating 81 years of operation. They are best identified by its signature meat aging room stocked with the best USDA Prime dry aged beef.

Inside the dining room. We had a quaint little seating area. They really pack you in!

Guess what Melissa Good Taste ordered first! Of course the Clam Chowder - I shared. I have said this time and time again... Clam Chowder should not be all about potatoes. The flavor was decent but it truly was a Potato Chowder. Not a lot of seafood action going on there.

Another easy guess on an order of mine - the Crab Cake Appetizer. I let a few bites slip away but for the most part I enjoyed this solely. These crab cakes were pretty delicious. Very much the real deal. No bread crumb or cracker filler just sweet delicious crab. What a treat.

And can you believe I ate this too?!! Well, not the whole thing but I certainly made my mark. Like I said this weekend I was really going for it! The meat was not quite medium it was more to the well mark. The meat was sadly not as tasty as I had anticipated. The shoe-string onion rings made a special spot in my heart. Yum!

All in all the meal was pretty good. The setting was beautiful: dark woods, low lighting and pictures of famous baseball players and race horses lining the walls - very New York. I thought most of the food was just ok, except for those stand out crab cakes! I would return to dine because of the atmosphere. Maybe I will venture off my seafood kick and try something new, they had a Mahi Mahi special that night that I was tempted to try too!
