This week I ventured into Off the Strip Bistro & Bar, not once but twice. The first trip was late when my buddy and I had a late night of poker and were hungry.
We ventured into the Linq Promenade to see what was still open at 1:30 in the morning. Off the Strip was open and had a late night happy hour from 12-3 a.m. It’s located right next to O’Shea’s at 3545 South Las Vegas Blvd.
The Happy Hour is a really good one for the Strip as Blue Moon bottles were just $3.50, the craft beers were all 50% off and there were specials on cocktails as well.
We had the dry rub chicken wings, which were quite good. The wings were baked instead of fried and the seasoning was excellent. For $7 during happy hour you can’t go wrong.
We also tried the calamari and it was good as well. I have had better but this was good and the marina sauce was very good. Getting this happy hour appetizer served two purposes. I was able to try the calamari but also got to taste the marina sauce, which tells me I will be trying some pasta dishes in the future.
They have seven happy hour food items all priced at $7 each, and they also feature a 16 ounce Rib Eye for $20 during happy hour.
Now at 1:30 a.m., I wasn’t looking for a rib eye but our bartender told us it was fantastic. So I knew I had to come back to try it for this article, and two days later I was back. A group of us went for the day time Happy Hour that runs from 2-5 in the afternoon, so I guess if you are going for food it’s a late lunch or a very early dinner.
We all ordered the Rib Eye, which came with mashed potatoes and green beans. The steaks were very flavorful and all four of our steaks were cooked just the way we ordered them. We all had an appetizer as we wanted to try the giant 10 ounce meatball. It was not the best meatball in town but it’s in the Top 5 and worth every penny with the happy hour pricing.
We saw several hamburgers coming out from the kitchen and by looks and smell I will be back for one. If you had seen us turn and watch it go by you would have thought a supermodel went by the way our heads spun around. When you’re a foodie that’s what you do.
The 12 ounce burger meat is a special blend of chuck, sirloin and brisket.
If you make it to Off the Strip Bistro & Bar during happy hour the Rib Eye for $20 is a no brainer. Considering you are on the Strip getting this type of meal for $20 might just make it the best happy hour in town. I give Off the Strip Bistro & Bar a rating of 3.75 Forks.
