This place is a dive in the middle of a dive casino but the rib dinners are fabulous. No smoking inside is a real plus. 5 of us came for ribs...$17 for a full rack unless you are a gambling member, then $13.99. Included cole slaw, yummy beans, garlic bread, corn and more ribs than most of us could eat.... More

OK, so it is small and dark and off the main drag but if you want the best melt in your mouth sirloin steak dinner don't miss this place. It is a small casino with 3 restaurants. I have heard the BBQ is exceptional too but I always go for my steak. It is not on the menu...just ask for... More

Not too many choices but what a breath of fresh air to leave the strip and be in a smaller casino and restaurant that serves the basics at a reasonable price. We had Chicken and Ribs with the sides and it was very good. They had local craft beers as well. I would come back here next time without question.

This place is a favorite of Las Vegas locals. Food is good, portions large, prices reasonable. With deals offered by casino, prices are even better. We ate ther tonight and had fish 'n chips. Really good. With two for one discount and in-house coupons, we paid less than $5.00 plus a $4.00 tip. If you're looking for ambiance, look elsewhere.... More

Great dining experience... Super amazing steaks & friendly staff. Be prepared to wait to be seated, but have an IPA from the bar while you wait it is cheap & brewed right there on the premises.

Our son and his partner visited after doing the High Roller wheel and suggested we went for the steak. Excellent food with great service. The salad dressings were all home made, fresh and tasty.

I have eaten at Ellis Island before for their awesome barbecue, but never had been there for breakfast. I was skeptical as the steak and eggs special was $5.99. I can tell you the steak was great! 8 oz done to perfection. It was served with two eggs, toast and deep fried potatoes. We all had the special and all... More

If you're after a quality dinner that won't break your budget, then this is the place. The small BBQ establishment hidden in one corner of the Casino is to die for! The restaurant was recommended by others and were we glad they did! A small menu that includes baby back ribs and chicken dishes. One other added bonus is the... More

Sister and husband ate here a year ago and raved about the food. On our last night in Vegas, we joined the locals at this older casino and restaurant. Though we had a 45 minute wait, the king cut prime rib was definitely worth it. So tender! The fish and chips were tops, too. Would definitely return!
