“One of the best!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Every time I visit Vegas I eat here at least 2 times. Most of the time there is a long wait but it's so worth it. Hubby always gets the steak special which is $7.99 for a huge steak, asparagus, baked potato & a house brewed beer. I stick with the Chicken Fried Chicken which is probably one of the best ones I've ever had...and I've had it MANY places. The gravy is fantastic & the portions are huge. Prices are perfect! Try their house brewed root beer, mmm! Everyone I've ever taken here gets a little creeped out by the atmosphere but once they try it they are a fan as well!

“Good Value Breakfast”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

stay on the strip 35-40 nights per year ... frustrated paying 20$ for breakfast with tip ... have found that "forcing" the walk to Ellis Island from the strip is worthwhile indeed ... both from an excercise point of view as well as a value point of view ... breakfast with tip in for 10 bucks or so .. over an eight or nine day stay close to 100$ ... homestyle cooking .. old fashioned type decor .... not fancy but a great feeling not paying 20$ ... similar in decor and atmosphere to Terribles ...

“Good Food, Reasonably Priced”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This place is about two long blocks off the strip, behind Planet Hollywood and the Elara, more or less. When we reached the entrance, we almost didn't go in because it looked like a dark and uninviting casino. However, the restaurant is actually in the back of the casino area and was pleasant enough. Plus, the prices were reasonable and, in some cases, excellent. We got a good steak dinner, including a large soft drink, tasty clam chowder, and potatoes or fries for $10.99.

On one occasion, we waited about 15 minutes to be seated, but on another we were seated without any wait. In both cases, once we were seated, we were served quickly by a friendly waiter.

“Continue to be a great deal and value!!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I recently returned and still enjoyed the food there. The service is not the best and fastes, but the food is making up for it. The prices are a great plus, and it is easy to get there. If you are staying at the Westin Hotel, it is right accross the street.

Go there and check it out! It is a 24/7 place.
