This small casino is located in the older section of Henderson; off of Water Street. Nearby are Town Hall, Henderson Police Dept. and Henderson FD main offices. The inside is very clean, and the staff is very attentive and cordial. As always, it is best to get a players card. Emerald Island's card is a bit different when it comes... More

Great place to be part of a "local family" feel if you are gambling, eating or just taking in one of their promotional Activities -- I find their wait staff to be one-of-the-best in keeping drinks filled while you are playing at a machine. Be advise there are no table games here at all....all slots. Yes you can & will... More

Thank god it was only $20.00 bucks in a machine. But that made me realize that i have never won there..... And It only takes seconds to smell like a ash tray. And I don't smoke. They need smoking filters badly.

Old downtown Henderson. Cocktail servers always around. Small restaurant with good selection of food. Inexpensive. Free food served to players on casino floor. Friendly staff. Daily promotions spice things up abit. Smoky. One reviewer incorrectly mention they make there own micro brew (Ellis Island casino does). No card games, just slots.

This restaurant is small & usually the food is quite good. However, my family & I went there for breakfast last Sunday, and we were disappointed. Had to ask the waitress for our drinks, which we ordered right away, but they didn't arrive. The food was luke warm at best.

At the entrance to the creatively named Emerald Island Grille, I saw a sign publicizing a breakfast special of 2 eggs, 2 strips of bacon and 2 pancakes for $2.22 which we ordered knowing neither of us would be able to clean our plates. Considering the locale and clientele, our meals turned out to be better than expected and, at... More

The casino is not as flashy as others and kind of common, the food in the restaurant however was very good. They also have an on site micro brewery, so if you like beer, check it out.

A nice small comfortable casino. They advertise themselves as the only "All Penny Casino" in Nevada. An older place in downtown Henderson. They have a restaurant that gets crowded towards dinner time as they offer players free food with a certain amount of free play. If you take out orders they charge you a dollar extra for each order which... More

If you are going to be on Water St in downtown Henderson, give this casino a try. It is one of the original casinos in downtown. It is a locals favorite.
