William B’s Steakhouse

The revival of William B’s Steakhouse inside the Suncoast Casino in Las Vegas combines a modern, elegant design with the legendary service and fresh ingredients the original William B’s was known for.

When the Stardust was imploded in 2006, it took with it William B’s Steakhouse. Named for Boyd Gaming founder William Boyd, the guest service and efforts by the staff to personalize each dining experience had become legendary during its 20-plus-year run. It is fitting that the new William B’s in Summerlin-adjacent Suncoast Casino, which opened in November 2023, brings back the same unique guest service along with pricing more aimed toward local connoisseurs than many current Strip steakhouses. 

The restaurant itself is, to quote one guest unprompted, “sexy,” with 13-ft. ceilings with modern lighting that is bright enough to read the menu easily and appreciate the decor but not harsh. The bar and lounge area is lively and welcoming. The main restaurant features booths and tables with curved wood lines and attractive light fixtures. The dining areas are separated by a beautiful stainless-steel wine display with 500 bottles.

Your first glimpse of the spectacular service comes during bread service. All the bread is baked fresh, and you are given your choice of the daily selection. Standouts and recommendations from Room Chef Chris Nicholson include the brioche, pretzel and raisin. The cocktail list includes top-shelf standards like a barrel-aged Sidecar and a Manhattan that uses Whistlepig Piggyback Rye. The Old Fashioned is standard but for the caramelized brown sugar orange that gives a welcome touch of extra sweetness. Other standouts include The William B, which contains Dos Caras Blanco tequila, Cointreau and fresh lemon with a lovely presentation. The wine list is vast (have to make use of the stunning wine display) with a wide variety of top American selections and a handful of Italian favorites.

The starters at William B’s Steakhouse include steakhouse standards like calamari fritti, crab cakes, shrimp cocktail, Wagyu meatballs, oysters Rockefeller and more. Highlighted in the appetizers is the pan-roasted seafood tower, available in two sizes. A generous serving of Maine lobster, king crab, gulf shrimp, scallops, littleneck clams and more is served in white wine and garlic butter. All of the fish selections are flown in daily, and the freshness shows in each item. The broth seasons each item lightly but doesn’t overpower them. Salads include a classic iceberg wedge salad, a Caesar salad, a Tuscan chopped salad and an heirloom tomato and burrata salad with a fig-balsamic dressing and a torched basil leaf. The delicate, creamy burrata is imported from Italy, and the smaller cherry-sized heirloom tomatoes burst in your mouth providing a hint of sweetness and acidity.

The dinner selections are divided into sections from the sea, land, steaks & chops and sides. Steaks are further grouped into boneless cuts, bone-in cuts and large-format cuts with steak add-ons and sauces listed as well. William B’s serves USDA prime steaks for many of its cuts. There is a 22-oz. center-cut filet mignon prepared in the classic French Chateaubriand style. Also available is a 9+ 14-oz. Wagyu New York cut from Rosewood Ranches in Texas. The 22-oz. bone-in ribeye from Creekstone Farms has plenty of flavor with a light sear and is cooked to perfection. Colorado lamb and Wisconsin veal are also featured in the chops.

The Chilean sea bass is served with a wild mushroom risotto and a truffle cream sauce. The bass is delicate and flaky with a slight crisp on the outside that provides a nice balance. The truffle cream sauce adds just the right amount of decadence, and the mushroom risotto is the perfect complement.

A wide variety of sides can make choosing difficult. All the favorites are here–mac and cheese, a variety of potato options and more. The baby carrots are served with an orange-honey glaze that adds a lot of flavor to the warm, soft carrots. Another highlight is the street corn with cotija cheese and a lime crema. The sweet corn evokes a memory of summer barbecues and grill time without the bugs and much better seating.

The dessert menu is updated regularly. Selections include a crème brûlée, sticky toffee pudding and chocolate cake. One delicious option is the banana cream pie. The texture is delicate yet the flavors are so rich.

William B’s Steakhouse at Suncoast Hotel and Casino offers a happy hour (Tower Hour, if you’re a regular) in the bar and lounge from 4 to 6 p.m. with a variety of on- and off-menu items available and discounted select drinks. William B’s is open Wednesday through Sunday; the dining room is open from 5 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
