You can take the SDX or Deuce bus down to the Outlet center a couple of miles south of the strip. You can grab a taxi to Town Square Mall to continue shopping and I like the specials at Miller's Ale House at Town Square. http://www.millersalehouse.com/specials-...
Wednesday is there lobster special. Mr. Lucky's 24 at the Hard Rock still has the Gambler's Special on request(not on menu) as a steak, shrimp a choice of potato or broccoli and a salad for $7.77. The Venetian and Palazzo each have Grand Lux Cafe subsidiary of Cheesecake Factory. For Las vegas, prices are good and restaurant is nice decor. For a big Italian dinner, Maggiano's in Fashion Show Mall. Try to get a table close to the Window for the evening view.
There are small bistros at the Paris for lighter fare lunches.
Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris overlooks the Bellagio fountains but is not inexpensive. Olive's at Bellagio also. Buffets are at every Casino.

I like the buffet at Cosmopolitan and at Mandalay Bay. You can browse the web about them. The lines are typically much shorter than at the Wynn and Bellagio and Paris, and the food is still tops.
Nice high end meal is at the restaurant at the Stratosphere Top of the World. It rotates slowly. Sometimes there are restaurant.com coupons.
If you have a car and want to venture to the Palace Station at north strip, joining the slot club (free) is the cheapest buffet with decent food, but further away for a little more is either Red Rock on Charleston or Green Vally ranch in Henderson. Nice buffets there for $12 a person with slot club.
