What is the worst restaurant on the Las Vegas strip?
I nominate Dick's Last Resort in the Excaliber Hotel. We asked the hotel to recommend a restaurant where we could get dinner and watch the football game on TV. They suggested Dick's just off the casino floor.
We paid $120 for a round of drinks, soggy nachos with canned refried beans, lukewarm broiled salmon with frozen veggies, a bland buffalo chicken salad (the blue cheese dressing was oddly missing any hint of blue cheese) and dried out chicken fingers. (Doesn't that sound appetizing?)
Worse yet, the table next to us kept throwing napkins at one of our party, who happened to be a diminutive Indian gentleman. We asked them to stop three times, then complained to the server, then to the manager Michael. Manager Michael did not approach the offending table. Instead, he said napkin throwing was part of the restaurant's "theme" and he asked us to settle our bill and leave. Nothing comped. No appologies. Apparently, opting out of the "fun" is against the house rules.
Unfortuately, this napkin thowing theme was not explained to us by the hotel when they recommended the restaurant, nor was there any signage at the front of the restaurant warning of the fun awaiting us.
The Excalibur Hotel has been on the decline for a number of years and Dick's Last Resort is proof that they are racing for the bottom. It receives my nomination for worst restaurant on the Las Vegas strip.
Any other restaurants we should be warned away from?
