If you're in Mesquite to check out the casinos, golf, or spa deals, your best bet for dinner is Katherine's, a steakhouse at the CasaBlanca resort with an old-school vibe. Tableside presentations are the restaurant's claim to fame, from Caesar Salad to start the meal to a choice of Bananas Foster or Cherries Jubilee to end it. The prime steaks are hard to resist, but don't overlook the dover sole, cooked whole and deboned at the table. Katherine's also makes a point to get the largest stone crabs possible when in season. The restaurant has seen its share of upgrades over the years, but not much of the decor had changed—and people like it that way. Familiarity is part of the charm. Katherine's opens early for dinner at 4 pm to accommodate the one-hour time difference for those across the state line in St. George and other parts of Southwest Utah.
