Fish Restaurants, Help!! Our friends want to eat at McCormick & Schmick's in Vegas. Noooooo!!

Heading to Vegas to catch up with some friends for a few days. About 3, exactly. So we'll have 3 dinners. But they're excited about going to McCormick & Schmick's. Um....I can eat there any day of the week, and it's a decent enough "take my 84 year old mom out for an early-bird dinner" kind of place. And I do love their Alaskan King Crab legs. But in Vegas? Really? I guess the answer is "maybe" because they don't have M&S in their state.

Can fellow CH-ers recommend a suitable alternative? Though I may have to conceed on this one as I may at least get them to Robuchon one of the nights. Which will probably blow their minds. And mine too I hope!

Any other options for fresh fish and excellent crab legs? I don't mean to be a total snob (ok maybe a little bit) but I don't get to Vegas all that often (last time=2004) and want to maximize my time there, but I also do want to make sure we get to see them as much as possible. And at least offer up alternatives when I present my dining recommendations to them. Thanks in advance for the recommendations and/or condolences.
