Any time of day, Ellis Island is cranking out unpretentious no-frills comfort food that is really really good. Ask for the steak special which is not on the menu. The price varies, but you get a decent sized piece of steak, two sides, and a salad or soup for under $15. Add a house-made IPA or stout to your meal,... More

Found this restaurant by chance and thought we would give it a try. Our food was brought super quick. The baby back ribs were awesome. Came with corn on the cob, beans, coleslaw and bread. I'll be honest the sides weren't great but that left room for more ribs.

We walked from Ballys, a 10 minute walk.The ribs were some of the best I have ever eaten. Full of flavor and tender.I really didn't need the sides because the ribs were that good and filling. Go you won't be sorry.

Found the BBQ restaurant in a quiet corner of their Casino. Only ribs or chicken on menu, but totally Delish! It came on a large platter with sides of corn on cob, beans, coleslaw and fresh bun. It was a close walk on Koval lane from IHG resort. Price was good and great service.

I have been here a few times and do love the food. The menu as you will read is very limited but the food is very good and the quantity of food is classified as "more than you need". I wont even mention the price as it probably doesn't even cover their staff let alone the food cost. The restaurant... More

We spoke with a local man while waiting inline and he highly recommended Ellis Island as one of Las Vegas's best places. We went the next day and found it to be excellent value and excellent food. We gambled our share and end up we won more than we spent on dinner drinks and everything.

Went to Ellis island since it was recommended by our hotel. The food was super delicious and the portions were massive. Truly tasty food in a sea of tasteless stuff on the strip. It's wallet friendly too, It's popular so go early or expect a 30 min wait.
