Four Las Vegas Restaurants Perfect for Watching the Game

Cheering on your favorite team and enjoying great food don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

Every casino has a sportsbook, but sometimes, you just want to enjoy a great meal while watching the game (something other than standard bar food). Well, Vegas definitely has you covered. Not only are these restaurants perfect for watching your favorite team, but the food is also fantastic.

Money, Baby!

Money, Baby! inside Virgin Hotels Las Vegas has a menu of elevated bar staples with other items you might not expect to see while watching a game on the big screen. With Food Network Chef Beau McMillan at the helm, it’s no wonder the cuisine is fantastic. I recently visited for a hosted press tasting and was pleasantly surprised at the menu offerings. The New York strip steak rivals steakhouse favorites, while the miso-glazed salmon sticky rice bow and the bone-in veal parmigiana are definitely not the usual suspects. The desserts are especially delectable- the Millionaire’s MB chocolate tart is a blingy (and delicious) way to end your meal.

Make sure to check out the patio for stunning views of the pool complex and some beautiful desert sunsets. “My favorite thing about Money, Baby! really, besides the overall massive physical space and the incredible work that went into the design, is I truly feel that it can be an organic experience for everyone,” Chef Beau told us when we asked about his favorite part of Money, Baby! “Whether watching a Sunday night football game with wings and burgers, or taking a new date to sit on our beautiful patio enjoying prime steaks and high-end cocktails, you can truly have it all there.”

Sickies Garage Burgers & Brews

Located inside Town Square Las Vegas, Sickies Garage Burgers & Brews has numerous screens for all your sports-binging needs along with over 50 different burgers and a whole lot of wings (not to mention the dozens of sauce options). If you’re a Vegas Raiders fan, you’ll want to check out the Black Hole Burger- an ode to our NFL home team. It’s the perfect spot to catch a game before (or after) some serious shopping.

The Front Yard at Ellis Island

The Front Yard at Ellis Island brings the best of the outdoors to their dining room indoors—during a recent hosted media event, I was pleasantly surprised with the bright, airy space. Built like a giant greenhouse, the beer garden’s main dining room is filled with natural light during the days, while oversized fans keep the entire space comfortable and cool. The menu has a variety of great bar staples and some fun, unexpected items as well like the charcuterie board and the pan-roasted salmon.

Tailgate Social

Located inside Palace Station Hotel & Casino, Tailgate Social was designed with sports fans in mind. There’s something on the menu for everyone in your group— mini vegan cheeseburgers, truffle pasta and grilled fish tacos round out the selections, so every palate has a great option. Are you feeding a party? The “Holey Moley Big Ass 4 Foot Stromboli” is a fantastic feast for your group. If you’re looking for a steal, check out the Happy Hour menu at Tailgate Social, available daily with a selection of $7 food and beverage items.
