For those of you on the westside of town, the restaurant I’m going to talk about today is old news, having been able to enjoy Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar for some time now near Summerlin.

Thanks to Flemings opening a second location in Town Square (6515 S. Las Vegas Blvd.) people on the eastside now have a chance to enjoy one of their fine steaks. Las Vegas has its share of outstanding steakhouses and Flemings is right on par with the best.

Many times I want a really good steak but don’t feel like heading to the Strip and dealing with the hassle of all the traffic on the weekend. Now I can go over to Town Square, which continues to add new shops and restaurants to its growing family.

My first trip to Flemings was with a friend as we arrived for Happy Hour. It runs from 5-7 p.m. and they offer five different cocktails and five different wines by the glass for just $6 each. If you’re not feeling like stepping up your game with a Happy Hour cocktail or glass of wine don’t fear. They do have a beer special as well – you can get two Widmer Bros. IPA Series beers for $6.

Flemings also offers five different appetizers all priced at $6. On our visit we tried the Pan-Crisped Pork Belly and the Baked Brie. I know pork belly may not sound that appealing but we both loved it. Very flavorful and something I would order again.

The star of their Happy Hour menu is their Prime Burger served with your choice of Cheese and Bacon for just $6. It’s better than many of the $13 ones you can get at any of the fancy burger places on the Strip. You can not beat this burger for $6.

The bar area was quite full for Happy Hour so if you want to go I suggest being there closer to the 5 p.m. side rather than the close at 7. The secret is out and Town Square is always busy.

I made another trip back to actually have dinner and try a steak. Again, because of how busy Town Square has become, especially on the weekends, I recommend making reservations.

On this night I went with their Filet, which basically melted in my mouth. My steak was cooked to the perfect temperature, just how I ordered it. For my side dish I went with Fleming’s Potatoes, which is their house specialty and I highly recommend it. They are a blend of cream, jalapenos and cheddar cheese.

These potatoes are the perfect complement to your steak. So after a great meal at a steakhouse there is no better way to end the evening than enjoying a nice slice of New York style cheesecake. Theirs is on a graham cracker crust served with blueberry sauce and white chocolate shavings. This is a perfect ending to any meal.

With great food, excellent service and a fabulous Happy Hour I give Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar a rating of 3.75 Forks out of 4.
