Steak Special

We visited Ellis Island for the first time and although we had a 45 minute wait when we were served we were looked after by a lovely lady who explained what we would get with the coupon we had printed of when registering for a players card. $9.99 + tax and tip for soup/salad then a 10oz steak with... read more

Stopped for late lunch and a couple rounds of black jack. Food was very good. Wait staff attentive. We had fried shrimp special and chicken with portobello mushrooms. Both were good. Atmosphere is casual and comfortable.

Definitely the best ribs I ever tried both quantity and quality. The bill is very soft at the end. Dont set any high expectation as there is 0 fluff here. Just simply good ribs. Nothing else !

With pretty much every visit to Vegas, I end-up here. It could be mid-afternoon or stumbling-in late at late ... but I do indeed enjoy the visit. It is very much a locals place, a long block over from the strip. I like that I can play $2 blackjack, enjoy the interaction with the Dealers, locals and other tourists. It... More

Took an old fishing buddy who lives in Henderson to this restaurant. I had not been in a while but nothing seems to have changed, which in this case, is a good thing.. I introduced him to the BBQ portion of the place (Get there by four or wait in a long line) Introduced him to the beer from the... More

The restaurant is located off the strip and has great ambiance, as well as serving tasty food. Additionally... More

It's not fancy. There are not waiters in tuxes ready to jump at the snap of a finger. But if what you want is good basic food at a great price then you will be more than happy.

If you like craft beer this place offers it's own brews for a cheap price. Even though they raised the price from $1.00 a pint it is still well worth the visit. A little smokey but tolerable. The food is also good, Metro Pizza has a spot in the back.
