Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas

The view from the Tea Lounge at the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. This non-gaming property offers beautiful views both inside and out.

We love to go to Las Vegas and gamble. We have a whole page of Las Vegas reviews, and a lot of our YouTube Shorts are about gambling rules. However, not every trip is about gambling. Sometimes we want a quieter and less crowded, and there are quite a few non-gaming hotels that try to provide that experience. One of the best is the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. The Waldorf is located right in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip, and Bill stayed there last month. Wondering if a non-gaming property like this might be for you? In this post, we talk about the room, the hotel bar, the pool and spa, the unique high tea experience, and the very few potential downsides.

Best Buffet in Las Vegas

What is the best buffet in Las Vegas? That is a tough choice, and it partially depends on what you want. However, the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars is hard to beat if you have the cash- and if you spring for a line pass.

Most of the people in our travel group are two-meal-a-day folks– particularly when we are in Vegas. Dinner is usually something upscale, and brunch is generally something less expensive which appeals to the whole group. That means we wind up at quite a few buffets, and we have reviewed a ton on them on our Dine Drink Vegas YouTube channel buffets playlist. Which one, however, is the best buffet in Las Vegas? That is a tough question to answer. We may occasionally edit this post, but we have split them into four groups– the great, the good, the perfectly reasonable places to eat, and the places we wouldn’t care to repeat. As we look at each group, we will also talk about cost since that will absolutely drive part of your choice.

All the links below are to specific YouTube videos of these buffets. We promise we won’t ever make you watch us eat, and we try to make the videos short and focused enough to get you the information you need to make your travel plans without spending too much time watching irrelevant content.

Best Steak on Fremont Street

Rib cap and lobster tail at Oscar’s in the Plaza Hotel. What do you think is the best steak on Fremont Street?

We have eaten at a lot of great steakhouses on the Las Vegas Strip. Prime, Heritage, Craftsteak, Gallagher’s, Carversteak, and Bavette’s are all strong options. Steak-adjacent places like Lawry’s Prime Rib and Morimoto are also a lot of fun, and over Labor Day we are eating at STK in the Cosmo and at SW at the Wynn. However, sometimes you just want the classic old-school cool of Downtown Las Vegas. So what is the best steak on Fremont Street? We have been to six places, and we liked them all. Ultimately, though, we split them up into three groups.

Legacy Club at Circa Las Vegas

A firepit and cocktail on the outdoor patio of the Legacy Club at Circa Las Vegas? Yes, please!

Downtown Las Vegas has a lot of old school charm. That makes for a great trip, but it means you have to go to the Strip if you want an upscale bar or beautiful views. At least that is what it used to mean. With the addition of the Legacy Club, however, all that has changed. This bar sits on top of Circa, has a sophisticated ambiance, and has some of the best views in town. They also have the largest wall of whiskey I have seen in a long time.

8 East Circa Las Vegas

8 East at Circa Las Vegas is one of the best spots to eat on the Fremont Street Experience. Check it out next time you are downtown.

When I go to Vegas, the highlight of my trip is finding excellent things to eat. The last couple of trips have been downtown, and I have enjoyed highlight steakhouses like Barry’s Downtown Prime and Oscar’s. However, at some point in the trip I always need a change of pace. Last month we went to 8 East in Circa Las Vegas. That was a fantastic overall dining experience.
