The turkey tostada is our favorite lunch at Mandalay Bay. It is a generous portion that could easily be shared by two. The house made chips and a cranberry margarita (special the day we visited) are a great start to a wonderful lunch. Eat outside to avoid the noise! Enjoy!

Sunday brunch was ridiculously pricey, below average food with flustered service. The chips and salsa were good. Disappointing.

Middle of the afternoon, we are wandering around Mandalay Bay, just gawking at all the restaurants and casinos. Fun. The sign for Border Grill caught our eye ans we thought - why not. We went in and sat at the bar. They had a special margarita that day (which was quite good, but not memorable). My husband went for the... More

Nice restaurent in the congres centre of Mandalay Bay. (ladies, it's a long walk on heels from the casino). Nice atmosphere good sevice, creative kitchen. I loved the Peruvian ceviche, but the crab and grapfruit ceviche was not so special. All in all it's a nice place to try for a change

I eat here at least once on each trip to Vegas and everyone at the table always agrees that the food, like the service, is consistently good. Great salsa, too. Prices are a bit high, but reasonable by Strip standards.

Excellent service, mediocre food. From entry to exit, the service was unbeatable. The guacamole was great! The Yukatan Pork was an original flavor, but needs something with it. The fish tacos are bland and the fish is scarce in them. I think lunch here would be a better option than dinner.

We tried just about everything as they are small portions. Our waitress was great as she checked in frequently and the next item appeared before we were totally done with current item. Everything had great flavor. They did not seem to mind us chilling there and taking our time eating. It was nice to sit outside and there were heaters... More

You ever went to a restaurant and wondered if you ordered the right thing? Well, I did the small plates special which was outstanding. I little spendy - $55 - but I wanted to get a taste of everything these women chefs have come up with. It was outstanding. They bring small plates of anything on the menu with no... More

Description
Welcome to Border Grill, Las Vegas' destination restaurant overlooking the Lazy River just off Mandalay Beach, where Chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, Bravo's "Top Chef Masters" and Food Network's "Too Hot Tamales," want nothing more than to spice up your day. With two floors of patio dining, and a beautiful outdoor bar, it's the perfect setting for sipping margaritas and savoring the bold flavors of Mexico while enjoying views of the beach and pool. Border Grill Las Vegas is located in Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. There's so much to do at Mandalay Bay. The Shark Reef, right next door to the restaurant, features sharks of all kinds, as well as a slew of exotic, predatory marine life. Stop by for fish tacos after and have the last word in the food chain.
