Nice restaurant for a family meal. The BBQ Chicken to very good as well as the ribs, and the Beer. Price is reasonable for the amount of food you will be getting. Corn is never good, but everything else makes up for it.

Stayed at a hotel half a block from Ellis Island so simply had to pay the place a visit as I had heard so many good things about the place. Very much a cheap and cheerful place, a millions miles from the glamour and expense of the nearby strip casinos. Busy every time I have popped by, from early morning... More

Excellent BBQ! Only options are ribs or chicken though. Lot of food (ear of corn, baked beans, cole slaw, and bread) for not a lot of money. Staff is prompt and friendly. Get there early as they open at 4pm and serve until gone. We got there about 5pm and they were hopping.

Little locals secret for their great bbq chicken and ribs. A few years ago the price was pleasantly low and they have raised it quiet a bit but still a great value for the price. Ton of food and the best around.

We found this bar restaurant a short walk from the strip it had its own brewery. The food and drinks were very good value for money, staff friendly, it was quite relaxing after the busy strip in Las Vegas it felt more of a local away from the large hotels - enjoyable !!

This place seems to be part of a hotel, casino and local brewery. A full of plate of tender BBQ pork ribs with beans, corn, colesaw and garlic bread was easy one of the best bbqs I've had. For 26 dollars including a beer this is very good value for money. Highly recommend.

Read all the great reviews about how great the breakfast was. I ordered the ham and eggs. The ham was a pretty nice portion, but the egss and the potatoes (or whatever the cubed mess was) were tasteless and cold. My freind ordered the steak and eggs. The piece of meat was ordered medium and it came out as a... More

A little way off the main Strip but well worth the effort of finding. Great BBQ menu and probably the best ribs in town. Brewery onsite offers a great choice of beers too. Excellent value for money.

Found this place after first day then ate there every night after. The prime rib steaks are the best we have found anywhere in the world. BBQ is also amazing. If we go back to Vegas we will find a hotel closer to ellis island without any doubt, what value for money, also has it's own micro brewery with a... More

Friends said we had to try the ribs. Not only where they some of the best ribs I have ever had but there was also a lot of food. The best thing was the price. Very inexpensive for dinner. Get the players card and you get a discount.

Thank Robert P
