Ruth's Chris Steak House will return to Las Vegas early next year at Harrah's.

Seating nearly 400, the new restaurant will feature views of the Strip through a wall of windows from the upper level. It replaces the Range Steakhouse, which closed last month.

This will be the third Ruth's Chris to open at a Harrah's resort. Two others are located at the Harrah's New Orleans and Harrah's Cherokee in North Carolina. Ruth's Chris opened its first restaurant in 1965 in New Orleans and now has more than 150 restaurants worldwide.

A Ruth's Chris served steaks for 22 years off the Strip on Paradise Road before closing in 2011.

Harrah's

Just as distinctive as its famous neighbors Caesar's Palace and The Venetian, Harrah's Las Vegas has been entertaining guests since 1973. The 87,700-square foot casino is filled with 1,520 slot machines and 107 gaming tables. Outside the casino, guests are able to experience fun in a street-fair atmosphere at the Carnival Court, an outdoor lounge with live entertainment (including the bartenders), food stands and outdoor shops.

At Harrah's comedy is King, and that has never been more apparent then the comedy acts of Rita Rudner, the Mac King Comedy Magic Show and the Improv Comedy Club. After the show, guests are more than welcome to laugh at their friends at The Piano Bar, famous for its dueling pianos and karaoke. Most recently, Harrah's added tribute show "Legends in Concert" to its list of entertainment.

Restaurants like Ming's offers Asian cuisine, while The Range Steakhouse offers guests fine steaks and fresh seafood. Toby Keith's I Love This Bar is a country-themed bar with a restaurant, live music and the occasional appearance from Keith himself.
