This was my first time in Vegas. I had a taste for some BBQ ribs. Prior to my visit I was told by one of my co-workers that there was a really good place there, but he couldn't remember the name. I came to Trip Advisor to see if I can find one not too far from where I was... More

I don't know what happened to my posting last night, so I will summarize our experience at Ellis Island from last night... EVERYTHING described by prior members of Trip Advisor were spot-on! The property is only a stone's throw from the strip and all the high-roller casino properties. The casino/hotel/restaurant is somewhat dated, but CLEAN and well-managed. We were greeted... More

One trip, we asked a driver where the locals eat. It's here. Short walk from Holiday Inn, Bally's, etc. breakfast served all day. One day we were late so we had lunch. One person had the Island Sampler. I have never seen such a large sampler. Everything was great and not pricey at all.

I only tried the ribs and they were delicious! My friends tried the chicken and they liked it. Moreover, the ratio price-quantity is extremely convenient. I would go back. I just... More

Plain simple but high quality. Off beat and relaxe, if you look to escape the noisy strip. Good price for value

I knew when planning for Vegas I wanted to come here for the prime rib. I can say we were very pleased. Both me and the wife had the king cut while my son had the double cut. These king was closer to 16oz than 12oz and the double was 32oz. They were huge! Very tender and flavorful. $15.99 for... More

Party of 5. Service was fast, ribs were surprisingly good. Price was incredible. Kind of a divey locals place a little off the strip. We had a great time at Ellis Island. Maybe the most fun we had during our week in Vegas. If you're a snob or uptight it's probably not the place for you. But if you want... More

Fun place, hidden gem. Very reasonable prices for dining that are incentivized. Casino is nice sized, well attended and not crowded.
