Huge Shrimp, Steamed Claims, Oysters on the Half Shell

Off the Las Vegas Strip Dining Huge Shrimp, Steamed Clams & Oysters

Sometimes getting off the strip in Las Vegas you find some true gems. This was one of those outings.

Shrimp cocktail Briggs Oyster Co.

We ate dinner at a fabulous restaurant; Briggs Oyster Co. at the Suncoast Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. I started with a Shrimp Cocktail. It had the biggest shrimp I have even eaten. Following that I had their clam chowder. It was thick and had a good amount of clams in it.  For the main course I had a Caesar shrimp salad. My mom had steamed clams, and a steak dinner.  Everything we had we loved.

We chose to eat at the bar as we could watch all the chefs cooking the meals. That alone was worth going. They had a bar of steaming/boiling pots that they cooked food in. We watched as they opened the oysters for oysters on the half shell. We also watched as they made the sushi rolls.

The service was outstanding. It was a fun night out with great food.



Traveling to a “Snowbird” Location

When picking a place to travel to or a “Snowbird” location you have to be ready for it not to meet all your expectations. We have a get-away house in Las Vegas. We went there to get out of the cold; -15 degrees where we are from. I love snow but not for 5 months. I start to feel trapped. Thus a get-away place. Las Vegas is supposed to be warm but there was ice on our pool at noon today. I love Las Vegas but I didn’t expect it to be so cold. I might be looking for someplace warmer yet.
