This past week I had some clients in town that were here to play in the WSOP and they invited Bryan Leonard and myself to dinner. Paul is a regular visitor to my website (, enjoys watching the handicapping videos Bryan and I do and wanted to take us to dinner to say thank you.

The restaurant he picked was Top of Binion’s Steakhouse located inside Binion’s Casino. Eating here was kind of fitting since they were in town to play the Colossus event at the WSOP.

There were eight of us in our party so we kept our waiter pretty busy. We had a window seat that gave us a great view of Fremont Street and looking back at the Las Vegas Strip. This was a perfect setting for an old-school Las Vegas dinner.

We all started with different appetizers. Some went with jumbo shrimp cocktails while others went with a Caesar salad. I went with a spinach salad, which was served with hot bacon dressing and was absolutely fantastic. The perfect start to a great meal.

For the entrée I went with one of Binion’s signature dishes – chicken fried lobster. This dish is quite different as they take the lobster tail from the shell, dip it in a panko breading and flash fried it. They serve the lobster with drawn butter and I ordered a baked potato as my side.

The lobster was good but the breading was more of a distraction to the flavor. I’m not saying I didn’t like it but a lighter batter would have let you enjoy the lobster more rather than dominating the taste.

I guess I’m a purist in the fact I just want lobster dipped in drawn butter. I still cleaned my plate and enjoyed the meal. All the guys that ordered steaks had no complaints. All of Top of Binion’s steaks are Midwestern, corn fed Black Angus beef aged at least 28 days.

If you’re looking for a place to go for dinner and want to go old school, give Top of Binion’s Steakhouse a try. The food was good and the service great. I give Top of Binion’s Steakhouse 3.5 Forks.
