Welcome to our photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater Vegas visits some of the city's great restaurants and bars to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, Top of Binion's Steakhouse.

A fixture on Fremont Street since 1988, the Top of Binion's Steakhouse has been giving guests a view from the 24th floor.

Of course, it started as the Top of the Mint in 1957, back when Fremont Street was still drivable and the view went all the way to the Strip. Hunter S. Thompson stayed at the hotel and made it famous in his novel "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." In 1988, The Mint was sold off to Binion’s.

Now its vintage Vegas décor and romantic atmosphere still keep diners coming in for the Creekstone Farms Midwestern corn-fed Black Angus beef aged 28 days and chicken fried lobster.
