Having heard that the café at the Ellis Island Hotel/Casino was a locals favorite, the wife and I finally stopped by for a meal. Good choice! The wife had the prime rib (rare and big enough that we had to take a large piece home) and I had the steak and shrimp plate. The sirloin was cooked just the way I like it, no over powering seasoning and very tender. The shrimp and steak fries where hot and tasted great. We split a glass of their home brewed unfiltered hefeweizen (long day and long drive to get home) and another pleasant surprise. This was a very good beer. Although, it was a Friday early evening, we were seated right away and our server Jovy was knowledgeable and serving time was excellent. We were told that later in the evening this place gets crowded so early is good. Going to plan a visit there again and soon.

They do it right, you can't find it better. We always stop here when we come to Las Vegas. It's basic BBQ chicken or ribs or both, cold slaw, ear of corn and baked beans. They've got the flavors and sauce down perfect. All good!

We ate breakfast here as we heard it was good value for money. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Looks may be deceiving from the outside but don't let this put you off. I would definitely recommend dining here if you want a meal without breaking the bank.

Went here last year for breakfast, it was excellent. Went back this trip for the 8.99 steak dinner. Once again, very satisfied. Certainly not a $$$$$ steak dinner, but the steak was good, cooked as ordered, and big. 2 adults, 4 adult bevs, and 2 meals, under 40$. Yes the place is old and dated, but for a good meal and a break from it all, I highly recommend.

Want a good meal at value price in Vegas? Look no further than Ellis Island cafe. We had a very good dinner here for peanuts compared to on strip dining, all delicious. The waitstaff is solicitous, and the atmosphere laid back. I won $20 at black jack as well. Love the laid back vibe in the casino and cafe. Will be back next time I am in Vegas.
