    So I'll being staying at CP in April, any good recommendations on restaurants there? Things to do, or check out there? It's my first time staying there and I keep hearing good/bad things about CP. Some say it's ceilings are too low and it gets pretty smoky in the gaming area, and others just love the place.

    I really like Joe's Stone Crabs ... just a fun, excellent venue. Also had a great meal at Guy Savoy. Have had a very good happy hour at Gordon Ramsay Pub, too.

    I'm not a big Caesar's guy, so this is fairly limited experience. But those are ones I like!

    Welcome Jaydog! Yes I am an unabashed fan of Caesars. Although not the newest and fanciest of properties, i think it has a wide range suited for just about every level of traveler.

    They current house the hottest nightclub, Omnia, if you are into the that scene. The Pussycat party pit resides right in front of the entrance of the club. The pools are quite nice if you are NOT into the day club scene. The Qua spa is also one of the top spas on the Strip.

    As for rooms, you have a wide range ranging from the basic room in the older towers to 9,000 sq ft villas going for $40,000 per night.

    Caesars also has the highest table limits for those who look for higher level gaming. As I am not a slot player, I have absolutely no idea about the slot situation.

    For restaurants, in my opinion, the top buffet in Vegas, the Baccanal buffet is there. The pricey Nobu restaurant is good but wouldn't want to paying out of pocket for that meal. Old Homestead is decent. I think better than STK for food quality. Obviously the ambiance is not quite as nice as many of the other steakhouses. However, you do also have access to the many restaurants located in the Forum shops attached to Caesars. Few of the restaurants there allow bill backs to your room. Joes Seafood and Steak is one of my favorite restaurants in Vegas.

    Biggest drawback, I think is the sprawling footprint of the property. Everywhere will be a hike. Although I cheat and visit and stay at other properties, I always end back at Caesars, also referred to as Geezers by many others here and there. BTW, I'm in my thirties and like it there....

    Mesa Grill. When they opened way back when we had our doubts, but they figured it out. Then again, it's not exactly complex. Hell, Spago. So many folks snivel about Puck but Bev Hills or Forum Shops, I love Spago. And, indeed, if you're not from Miami, Joe's.

    You know what I miss at Caesars? Empress Court. And 8-0-8.

    Played extensively at their HL Room and seriously think the professionalism and the dealers are among the best in Vegas. They make the logistics of playing there seem less and trouble free. Whenever a problem pops up, they have always hit it head on and resolved it immediately.

    The Chinese restaurant sucks in our opinion. I had some pictures posted under my last 2015 Asian NY trip report if they are still there. We usually order over 10 dishes and create our own Dim Sum of sorts, usually over $300.00 for the tab, and they just have too much darn sauce in their foods there. Old Homestead Steakhouse has always been over the top plain Jane wonderful, just like the original in the Meat Market on 14th Street, NYC. There is an ice/coffee/drink place out in the shopping area on the way to Augustus tower I think its called, love it, fantastic little place! Their café is a café, nothing worse or better than most. No where near like Café Bellagio but better than most and nothing to write home about.

    As others have said, the property is huge and if you are staying in a room on one end of the property, bad luck, have fun walking! The location always seems to be the best if you are venturing out and about. The decks are great to hang out on. Exits everywhere to get out and about as well.

    P.S., I think the pics are gone, but if you want to see numerous dishes and appetizers, I will report them tonight if you request. The dishes are always drowning in sauces.

    High Limit action in what we play is better than most properties. Table limits or generally, 100/200/300/500 to 10k/15k/20k/25k off the street. The only problem we ever had in their HL was losing. Unlike the other properties that either cant get it together or have a iron clad heavy handed management style that they portray, CP doesn't have the normal problems most do. CP is one of the best HL experiences all around.

    I was going to suggest blt burger but I've remembered that's at mirage. Either way, it's worth checking out.

    I used to be one of the folks who was negative towards Mr. Puck. I've eaten in his restaurants 3-4 times now and never had a bad meal.

    For Caesar's I also like cocktails on the "deck" at Trevi and, for Italian, Carmines. The wife and I had an anniversary dinner there a couple of years back mainly because they had a gluten free pasta option for her, but their regular pasta was pretty damn good.

    As ken said, Mesa is churning out pretty solid food now, and I liked GR Pub a lot. I thought the service at GR Pub was better than the fairly mediocre service I got at GR Steak.
