“Not so good.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

My husband went there to get food to go, a rib steak and salad the steak was awful and it came with Mex rice and beans . It was about $17.00 and its a ripoff if you ask me the steak was not rib eyes and they were gray looking with a couple of mushrooms(if you can call them mushrooms.) I will make sure we never go there again.

“The concept may be good but not the food”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Yes, you sit in a 'jail cell' but the over-priced steaks we had contained more fat than meat, the so-so bread was served in a dirty cloth napkin, and the starter soup was bland. Wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

Staying in Ely to visit Great Badin. What a great restaurant; our son gave it thumbs up, that says a lot!

“A little pricy for the food offerings”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The service is decent, but the food is nothing special. Expect to pay $25+ per person w/o drinks and while the food is enjoyable, it didn't stand out. Dinner for two with one appitizer and a couple of beers ended up nearly $80.

“A nicer place to dine in Ely”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Located in the back of the Jailhouse, the Cell Block restaurant is one of the fancier or nicer places to dine in Ely. Not to be confused with the coffee shop in the front of the casino (nice for breakfast or lunch, by the way). Neat decor; each booth is in a jail cell! Not gourmet quality, but pretty decent. No complaints. I had the chicken breast and ribs combo; OK. Wife had the salmon; average. But overall, a lot nicer than the Nevada Hotel restaurant if you want something a little more upscale in terms of decor and menu.
