On our current vacation we have visited Ellis a total of 5 times. Frist to play our $10 ACG slot play coupon - the free slot play is credited sometime the following day, but may be redeemed anytime before year end. My wife and I played on ours on the 4 slant tops that have NSUD. We made 4 other visits to have few drinks courtesy of the ACG free drink coupons. We also had breakfast using yet another ACG coupon good for a 2/1 entree. Servers at bar and restaurant were very friendly.
Ellis Island is where you go to drink cheap, eat cheap and gamble cheap. I go for the steak dinner special at the restaurant and like to drink the fabulous microbrews they have there.
They also have a bbq restaurant there but I haven't tried it yet. Same with karaoke-haven't tried it.
Most of the clientele is blue hairs or locals. But you'll find off duty cocktail girls and other industry workers there looking for a low-key environ.
