Casual Sin City comfort food
Sponsored page. This property is not Star Rated.
Grand Lux Cafe delivers comfort foods and a wide range of options in an upscale dining room — and you won’t even have to change out of your flip-flops and shorts to enjoy it.

Of the many dining options at The Venetian, Grand Lux is one of the best for families, with a dedicated kids’ menu and favorites such as the Max burger, miso-glazed salmon and a southwestern salad all available for under $30. Crowd-pleasing and oversized desserts are provided by the Cheesecake Factory.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Marble floors, intricate ceiling and wall decorations, and a variety of chair and bench setups make the Grand Lux Café a comfortable place to dine — something you can do at the Las Vegas restaurant 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • The menu at Grand Lux Café is hard to sum up in just a few words. The Las Vegas restaurant describes its offerings as “grand casual cuisine,” which includes flavors from Thai, Malaysian, Caribbean, American and European cuisines.
  • The Las Vegas restaurant inside the Venetian gets its sweets from the Cheesecake Factory, which is the Grand Lux Café’s sister restaurant. That means you’ll have an array of rich cheesecakes to choose from, along with other decadent desserts like the warm sticky bun bread pudding, key lime pie and red velvet cake.
Things to Know
  • Grand Lux Café has a casual dress code, which is in large part due to its location within the Venetian hotel. Grand Lux Café will welcome you whether you show up wearing flip-flops and shorts or a full suit.
  • Also keep in mind that the restaurant is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week; so even if you get a late-night craving, you won’t have to dress up to get a great meal.
  • If you’re familiar with the food at the Cheesecake Factory, then you’ll have a good idea of what to expect at Grand Lux Café — David Overton, the founder of the Cheesecake Factory, created the design and menu for the Venetian in opening the Grand Lux Café.
The Food
  • One of the restaurant’s most popular items, the shrimp scampi is sautéed with white wine, lemon, garlic, fresh tomato, basil, parsley and a touch of cream, and served with pasta. You can also order this dish as part of several combo platters.
  • The signature chophouse burger comes with the works — and then some: cheddar cheese, bacon, mushrooms, onions and roasted short rib. It’s all served next to salad or French fries.
  • Available as a standalone dish or as part of a combo with caramel chicken, the miso-glazed salmon comes served with steamed rice and stir-fried vegetables.
  • While all the desserts are made fresh, for a straight-out-of-the-oven treat, order a box of warm, homemade chocolate chip pecan cookies or create your own cupcakes with an assortment of toppings and frostings.
The Bar
  • Straight ahead of the main entrance to the Grand Lux Café, you’ll see the restaurant’s bar, decked out in highly contrasting dark marbles.
  • Glowing oranges and yellows illuminate the various bottles behind the bar and the underside of the bar top.
  • If you sit at the bar, you’ll be able to order off the restaurant’s entire menu, giving you access to favorites such as the Max burger (cheddar cheese, bacon, mushrooms, onions and roasted short rib) or the miso-glazed salmon.
  • And with plenty of draft beers, mixed drinks and wines to tipple, you might just choose to stay at the Grand Lux Café all day, which you can actually do, since the restaurant inside the Palazzo hotel is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
