The N9ne Steakhouse at the Palms is an amazing place. The food is wonderful and the staff are exceptional. We ate here for my friends bachelorette party and it was wonderful. Many celebrities eat here as well so you may just have a sighting during your meal. While we were there Kobe was eating only a few tables away and there were others there as well. But even if you are not looking for celebrity sightings, this is a wonderful upscale restaurant in Vegas.
The Nascar is a place we go to eat because we are hungry and its close by. There are some cool Nascar items there but really its nothing special even for an avid Nascar fan. The pizza and burgers are good and the prices are not outrageous, but unless you are already at the Sahara its not worth an extra trip or anything.
Nobu is a place you must have reservations for as it is very busy and well worth it to boot. The food is amazing whether you want traditional Japanese of Sushi which it is famous for, its well worth it. With a reservation you should only wait about 15 minutes for a table and after that the service is amazing. If you are making a trip to Vegas and want an amazing dining experience, Nobu is a must stop.
This is a nice upscale restaurant in Vegas that is well worth reservations and a long night out. The ambiance is amazing here and the food is great as well. Service is usually pretty good as well. The real reason though to come here is for the wine selection which is far better than most upscale places in Vegas.
Finding a nice place to take a family in Fillmore is harder than it looks, but Central Station is always nice. Their food is good and their beer selection is adequate. Their french dip is really good and the food is enough for kids to split a plate. They have a nice patio where they BBQ outside and its a great place for a Saturday afternoon lunch for the family.
Village Corner Gifts is a great little shop. They have lots of souvenirs including shirts, magnets, etc plus a lot of higher quality collectibles. They are right in the Pines Village and parking is usually easy. Their prices are a bit high compared to others at the lake but their selection can't be beat.
I received a quote with SCV Pools and to be honest it was on the cheaper side from what other contractors were telling me so I was a bit fearful. After talking to some friends that have used them, I came to the conclusion that they farm out all of their work, the company just sells the design and manages construction. They did a friends pool and the best advice I can give is if you use them make sure the contract is written that they can not charge more later and add in a percentage fee for work not completed on time. They do a good job, but you have to babysit them a bit.
I have been going to the Tam O'Shanter for a holiday meal for as long as I can remember. During the holidays they have Dickens dressed carolers roaming throughout the place singing for tables. Its a great place for a large gathering or a quiet romantic meal. The food is good, not great but still very good. It is a bit expensive for the quality but worth it for the experience.
Smitty's Grill is a wonderful restaurant with amazing food. Oddly enough with all of the wonderful meals I usually choose either Mac N Cheese or a Pot Pie because both are really fabulous. They offer a full cuisine and are able to easily accommodate small business gatherings.
The beer at the SLO brewing company is great, They have a wonderful selection of home brews. They also have a great food menu and local bands that play on the weekends making it a great atmosphere.
