Holsteins Shakes and Buns is another burgercentric restaurant on the Vegas strip, located in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. The surroundings are hip and modern, as is the casino/hotel it sits within. It's a mostly open space, not too dark, not too light. Noise level is quiet enough to allow conversation, but loud enough to not hear everything your neighboring table is saying.

I'd call the service professional. It was orderly, and quick. It was closer to fine dining than neighborhood pub.

The main attraction is the burgers. I had the hen house burger(beef patty topped with bacon and fried egg)with a side of steak fries. It was a top-notch burger; buns, egg and toppings all were great. The fries were just okay. We also split a couple apps: pizza twinkies and philly cheesesteak rolls. The twinkies were somewhere between pizza, corndog, and mozzerella sticks. Fun, tasty start to our meal.

Holsteins has about twenty beers on draught. The list contained a fair balance of german imports, english ale, belgian specialties, and west coast beers. I had an IPA from Tenaya Creek with my meal. It's good to see a local on the list.

By Vegas strip standards, this meal was reasonably priced. There are enough non-burger options to keep those who don't eat beef happy. They serve some fun, and interesting appetizers. The beer list is solid, and for those who don't care for beer, the cocktails and shakes looked good.

Been here twice in the past few months. Came away with a positive vibe each time.

Holsteins has a good tap selection, but are still catering to the C.M.B. drinker who is experimenting, rather than to actual craft beer afficionadoes. A few things on tap were worth trying each time, but nothing was the big, offensive flavor monster i was looking for.

Atmosphere - good. Steakhouse meets hooters. Nothing wrong with that. Lots of dudes, which is odd for Cosmo.

Service - very good. Bartenders know their stuff and can keep up a conversation.

Food - pretty good. Very fast delivery, but it all tasted fresh. Mostly a burger n fries joint. Had the beef n bbq burger. Pretty awesome.

Selection - nice selection, but still very safe. Lots of inoffensive selections - mild ales, lagers, pilsners, etc. theres room for a DIPA or two, or a little sumpthin wild, or a barley wine, but no, we get safe selections to keep the tourists happy.

Value: Its in the Cosmo. In Vegas. A burger n fries with two pints was $37 with tax. Par for the strip, but much better quality than most.

Stopped here while walking through the Cosmopolitan. Easy to find on the second floor especially with the big cow in the middle of the place. Very bright interior with lighter wood tones, and there was a very large bar here with some comfortable sofa/chair seating just off the bar. The main dining room is in the back. Despite the clean and comfortable decor, they were blasting crappy dance music which for me is nauseating.

The beer list was good, but not great. Beers like Anchor Steam, Firestone Pale, Tenaya Creek Hop Ride IPA, Indian Wells Mohave Red, and Ommegang Abbey Ale were among the usual Stella, Guiness, Newcastle beers you can find anywhere. The beers I had were fresh.

The burgers here are also good but overtly expensive like the beers. But this is the LV Strip.

Personally this was a decent beer stop on the strip, but the music would probably keep me away in the future.
