This little casino has a good mix of locals and tourists, Walking distance from the strip, located behind Bally's. Nice little bar serves a number of different beers from their onsite brewery, great rootbeer too! Good BBQ restaraunt with outdoor seating, or eat your BBQ n the indoor restaraunt. Try the Steak special, ask for it, it's not on the menu. Great slot club, use the ACG coupon.
We went to Ellis Island because we were intrigued by the 4 free drink coupon in ACG, we keep going back because we always have a good time. We love "locals" casinos and Ellis Island may be small, but I always win. My husband loves the bar and the microbrews. The food is great, it pays to be an insider and know about the steak dinner special. People that love the strip probably will not like it, but we will continue to go back every trip.
My November excursion was short and not sweet as I could not find full pay 25 Jacks or Better. I think I played on a 9/5. Had one of their great micro brews, but the cost was a $40 dollar loss and a buck tip. Great beer but $41 bucks?!, lol. You win some you lose some, I have has some good winning sessions there. Great beer, BBQ, and Steak special. $7.95 still a great price with the
I had read a review about this place some years ago and my hubby and I decided to try it on a lark. We went to the restaurant armed with our 2/1 coupon and got an off-the-menu sirloin steak special for $4.95 including baked potato, vegetable, and roll. The total price of both meals with the coupon was about $8 (the deal is now $7.95 but still a great price.) Since then this has become a must for our trips to Vegas and our most recent one in September, we went three times for breakfast, each time bringing friends who hadn't been there before. If you go on a weekend, you will wait for a table because they always seem to be short-staffed with several sections of the dining room closed, but it's worth the wait. Sign up for the players club and you may get a food or play bonus as well (they used to have matchplays on the table mats but no more).
The bar, I'm not that familiar with, but it's always packed with nightly karaoke. You really hear them singing in there. It seems to be what karaoke was created for. LOL.
This is also a locals joint as well so it's got the feel of Vegas all over it. Every time we're there, we really feel we've finally 'arrived'!
The casino is small but always fun to gamble there. The table games are low limits, and be sure to have your ACG card with you if you are using a matchplay because they are pretty strict about that sort of thing.
Going back in December and will be sure to be there again!
Downtown atmosphere one block from the center of the strip. Ellis is ALWAYS part of my Vegas ritual. When I come in from the East and can't sleep the first night I have breakfast or steak, or both at like 2 AM when the Strip entertainers come in for their meal after their shows. Or later when the cabbies some in. Nickel 9/6 Jacks or Better video poker? oy vey! While listening and singing along to Karaoke? And referral points for the slot club, and free bingo at 9 am and BBQ. or that the ultimate steak now for $7 with a beer. God I died and went to heaven. I have worked my American Casino Guide coupons at this place to the point of hilarity. Always bring a friend and sign them up, then have points for a free steak on my next trip. Bobby V
