Casual Vegas Restaurants

I am looking for some casual and reasonable Vegas restaurants that we can bring our 2 year old. We will be bringing our 2 year old with our Nanny so that we can have some fun on our own in the evenings but will be having most of our meals with them before we go out. Thanks

California Pizza Kitchen, in the Mirage, is casual and reasonable, and I'm pretty sure they have kid's menus. But that begs another question: Where will you be staying? The Mirage is North Strip, and may not be convenient to where you're lodged.

Rainforest Cafe would be appropriate for a 2 year old. Food is average, but I think your little one will get a kick out of the decor.

Last time we were in Vegas we had dinner at Postrio (Wolfgang Puck's Restaurant) at the Venetian. It was casual (not necessarily cheap) and the food was good.

Cheesecake Factory, if you don't mind a chain restaurant.

You can always do the buffets. They are very family-friendly.

We have chosen the Excalibur because supposedly it is "kid friendly" with an arcade and kids games. Not my choice of accomodations but that is ok for this trip if it works better for the nanny.

Any other restaurants near here? Thanks

How would you define casual, for the men? Are shorts okay? Coat? Loafers or tennies acceptable? Daytime v. night -is there a difference? I believe this may have been discussed before, but perhaps not for a time. Since the fall is coming on, do we need to brush up?

seriously, i don't think nanny and excalibur belong in the same sentence. nyny's coney island arcade is just as good imo, and is a step or two up above the excalibur. and nyny has a number of casual restaurants without the food court feel.

Anyone with enough money for a nanny should not be staying at Excalibur.

I agree with posts above---the Excalibur is a poor example of a Vegas hotel. Go across the street to NY NY or to MGM. I wouldn't take a kid to Vegas with or without a nanny. I know for sure that I wouldn't choose Excalibur--think bottom of the heap Days Inn. It and its food is right down there with Circus Circus.

Lots of the buffets will probably meet your needs--try Alladin or MGM.
