This week, I went to a side of town that I don’t get to that often. But after my visit to Carve Prime Rib located at 2121 E. Craig Road inside the Cannery Casino, I will be making a trip more often.
Carve Prime Rib has only been open a week or two, but they didn’t miss a beat with the food or service. I was by myself, so I sat at the bar, where I could watch the baseball game and enjoy a nice meal. The bartender Bri was very friendly and was helpful with her suggestions on the menu.
She highly recommended the Cajun Prime Rib which came with mashed potatoes, soup or salad. The soup was corn chowder which is what she recommended I go with.
She was spot on with her recommendation of the corn chowder. The corn chowder was made in a beer cheese base and the bacon pieces gave it a nice smoky flavor.
The Cajun prime rib is served grilled with a dry Cajun rub. I’m not a person that likes a lot of heat with my food and the Cajun prime rib was just right as the spices gave it flavor but didn’t make it excessively hot.
At this point I was pretty much stuffed, but I was going to sit and watch the game for a while so that I could try one of their desserts. It only took one inning and I was ready for dessert.
I trusted Bri with my dinner recommendation, so I asked her what she liked on the dessert menu and she suggested the hot apple pie. It came out on a sizzling platter, much like you would be served with fajitas. The apple pie was in the middle, with a scoop of ice cream on top and then Bri proceeded to pour caramel sauce over the sizzling platter filling the restaurant with the aroma of apple pie and caramel.
As I was sitting there finishing my dessert, the couple next to me at the bar had their food come out. They ordered the prime rib sliders and they looked so good I was ready to order one for myself. But the prime rib sliders will have to wait till my next visit.
The best part of Carve Prime Rib was the prices. My entire meal of prime rib, mashed potatoes, soup, dessert and a soda came to just $35.43, which is insane for the amount and the quality of the food I had.
It’s absolutely amazing how many great deals you can find when you venture off the Strip. I give Carve Prime Rib a rating of 3.75 Forks.
