SC Prime is a rare find off the Las Vegas Strip, no pun intended.
The delicious steaks, appetizing appetizers and made in-house desserts make SC Prime a cut above the rest.
Located in the Suncoast Hotel & Casino, with beautiful views of Las Vegas and floor-to-ceiling windows, SC Prime leaves guests feeling satiated and relaxed. The quiet steakhouse atmosphere features friendly waiters and is a taste of old school classic luxury. Here, you won't find tipsy club-goers or rowdy crowds. Rather, a more elegant and refined situation awaits, where you can casually enjoy a nice, handcrafted cocktail like the Indo-chine or Georgia peach, deliciously smooth and each with distinct hints of lemongrass and peach, respectively.
With most steakhouses, the cuts of meat are the same, so extra care has to be taken with preparation, seasoning and the other extras that make the dining experience. Such details do not go overlooked at SC Prime, with warm raisin walnut bread and parmesan crisps coming to the table with three different types of butter: honey, salted and garlic parmesan.
Appetizers include a lot of meats, like filet skewers, pork rolatini and pancetta-wrapped chicken, which doesn't always work with steak as an entrée. However, our table opted for the cheese plate and the shellfish platter, both in bountiful supplies. The cheese plate contained cheeses like a triple brie, Maytag blue cheese and aged sharp cheddar. Accompaniments include crackers, honey, berries, and sliced apples. The shellfish platter includes huge Alaskan king crab legs, oysters, jumbo shrimp and lobster medallions, served in an impressive glass platter over ice.
As for entrées, I would be remiss if I didn't mention beef. The bone-in ribeye is sensational, perfectly seasoned with salt and pepper and with a hint of rosemary and topped with crunchy onion straws. The porterhouse steak is a generous, 20-ounce cut with perfect char marks.
The desserts, made in house, are delicious bites. One dessert of noteworthy measure is the profiteroles. Pistachio and chocolate puffs are filled with matching pastry filling. The individual sized profiteroles come in a trio. They are the perfect delicate bite to end the meal.
A true delight in Summerlin, SC Prime should be on your list of places to try.
