We revisited Carve a few nights ago and again had a great meal. The restaurant is very warm and sophisticated in contrast to the casino proper. My wife and I once again shared an excellent spinach salad and each ordered the small prime rib. The meat was perfectly cooked to medium rare as requested and was accompanied by aus jus plus a horseradish sauce. We also each chose the sweet potato which includes a delicious maple flavored butter. Service throughout was excellent. The restaurant participates in restaurant.com.
We have stayed at the Eastside 3 times since it opened in August 2008. Located on the Boulder Highway, its nearest competitors include Sam’s Town, Boulder Station and Arizona Charlies (Boulder). This is by far the newest casino on the Boulder Highway. The owners also operate the Cannery in North Las Vegas.
The rooms would fall into the mid-range in terms of size and quality though on 2 of the 3 occasions we experienced problems with a dripping showerhead. The major difference between the regular and deluxe rooms is the latter has an extra set of floor to ceiling windows and a Jacuzzi. Rooms boast a flat screed TV and a small refrigerator. There is no swimming pool or parking garage. A senior rate is available by calling reservations.
There have been some downgrades to the Video Poker and the Craps now has Max 10X Odds. When it first opened Bob Dancer was consulting there and there were some good VP machines, full pay and close to it. Now, according to vpFREE2 the best games are 9/6 JOB 99.55% and 99.17% Bonus Poker.
The bar on the 16th floor (Club 16) is no longer open as far as I know. It was a real nice place with accommodations for a band or live DJ and dancing. We hope that will come back as it was nice.
The pool is very good and can facilitate outdoor entertainment.
The casino is large with high ceilings, reducing the smoke content of the air. They also have a coin in section of slots and VP for those of you who like the nostalgia of handling those dirty coins.
The buffet is acceptable with a decent cross section of food and coupons for two for one seem easy to obtain from various guide books and the local paper.
There were some new sign up bonuses but they were out of hats when I went there.
The rooms are clean, spacious and all have a good sized flat screen TV.
I would have rated this higher but I've never stayed there, although they've sent me some good offers.
The drawback for me is the lack of proximity to other casinos. I like to hit several in close order like Downtown, But if you like staying at one place this is a good bet.
We stayed at the Eastside Cannery for one night during our recent vacation in Las Vegas because they sent both my wife and me a free room offer plus $5 free play. Because we had never stayed here before my wife said let's check it out. The room was very nice. The free play offer was already on our player's cards so we really didn't need to stay here to get it. There were some slot machines that we had not seen before so we had fun checking them out. Also, we came out ahead in our slot play so it turned out to be a good experience.
The Eastside Cannery is near Sam's Town and the Longhorn Casino. It is relatively new so we have checked it out a few times.
The casino is nice and the buffet good. The first time we went we tried to use a coupon to get a free t-shirt for signing up for the players club but they had run out.
