Mediorce, slow service. Stopped in for breakfast. Took forever for server to arrive even though it wasn't crowded. Food was just ok. Packed in and noisy. I will not return. Walked around the corner to Tuscany Suites the next day. Quiet, clean, good food for not that much more money.
Just ok. Terrible service in the dining room. The food was decent but the price was good
Not bad. Good prices decent food
Cheap food, large quantities, good beer.
You'd probably never stop here unless you happen to be staying at the Super 8 or are a casino worker. It's nondescript, out-of-the-way, and not particularly attractive. I visited based on the recommendation of a fellow local when asked where's a good deal on food.
The restaurant is in a corner of the casino and looks like a Denny's or Shoney's but less well-lit. Specials include a daily one that always includes huge portions (roast pork, mashed potatoes, etc.) Oddly, no rolls or bread of any kind, even upon request.
Occasional unbelievable specials, like Oktoberfest one day. All the ribs and beer you can eat for $10???
They brew their own beer. Try the peach cobbler, too.
If you want a REALLY cheap deal, sign up for the players club. In about 2 weeks, they send you a 2-for-1 coupon.
One more annoying practice...since it's adjacent to the casino, they require you to wait about 20 minutes even though there are tons of empty tables. Presumably, that's so you'll drop some bucks into the casino.
$4.95 steak dinner. i am not going to tell you that it was great because it was not , but if you are not a fussy eater you cant beat the deal, i just had to see what a $4.95 steak dinner was, well you get a lot of food! salad, bread and butter veggies(canned for sure) and a piece of meat about as good as the outback (i am not a fan of the outback)if you have no money and need a meal why not!
For the budget minded.
03/11 My wife ordered the cinnamon French toast (slightly overcooked) while I had the easy over eggs, sourdough toast (chewy) and breakfast potatoes (amazingly good). Service this morning was excellent. We used an American Casino Guide (ACG) coupon.
12/10 We enjoyed 2 breakfasts at this restaurant on this trip - cinnamon French toast and easy over eggs with wheat toast and hash browns. There were not enough servers, but our entrees arrived piping hot.
ACG coupon used.
09/10 My wife ordered the cinnamon French toast and I went with easy over eggs, whole wheat toast and potatoes. Service was excellent and both meals were well prepared . ACG coupon used.
09/09 The economy seems to be having a positive impact on service at Ellis as there were more servers than we have seen in the past. Our orders of vanilla French toast were served hot and as close to perfection as one could hope. ACG coupon used.
04/09 We each opted orders of the French toast which were cooked to perfection. Las Vegas Advisor coupon used.
12/08 We have enjoyed the cinnamon vanilla French toast many times in the past, but today’s scaled new culinary heights and for the first time I cleaned my plate. ACG coupon used.
09/08 Ms. Westie ordered easy over eggs with wheat toast, home fries, bacon and coffee. I decided to go large by ordering a blackboard special – 8 ounce steak, eggs, sourdough toast and home fries. Our food arrived promptly, but I was disappointed in the size of my steak in comparison to those at surrounding tables, mine was obviously the runt of the litter. ($8, ACG, 2.5 Forks)
12/06 We each ordered the ½ rack of baby back ribs which were accompanied by cole slaw (tasteless), garlic toast (cold) and beans (under cooked). The ribs themselves were overdone. ($8.41, ACG, 1.5 Forks)
09/06 We have enjoyed numerous breakfasts at Ellis Island including a few during our recent vacation. My wife ordered easy over eggs with wheat toast, home fries, bacon and coffee. I decided to go large by ordering a blackboard special ? 8 ounce steak, eggs, sourdough toast and home fries. Our food arrived promptly, but I was disappointed in the size of my steak in comparison to those at surrounding tables, mine was obviously the runt of the litter.
On a second visit we each ordered the vanilla cinnamon French toast which was crisp and delicious. Service on both visits was very good.
We used 2/1 coupons from the American Casino Guide to make the already bargain priced meals even a better deal.
Cheapest In Vegas!. There is a Super 8 (The Largest In the chain they Boast!) Right next to this place and that's how I discoverd Ellis Island. (I had just got in, I stayed there, it was late and I was hungry!) I had a Chicken salad and some chicken wings and that homemade brew! (WOW!) My parents met me there when they got in and they were in awe! So what it smells like a vintage vegas spot. That's what makes it great! I ate there the next day (Had the Prime Rib.....WOHOO!) It's not tha far from the Venitian or the strip for that matter. The locals recomends that spot (Most of the cab drivers eat there!) And it dosen't have that VEGAS STRIP PRICE! There is a downside....long lines for breakfast, lunch, sometimes dinner, and it isn't as flavorable as say TEXAS or LOUISIANA FOOD, but that's why they put condiments on the table, right? If you doing Vegsa on a budget, like most of us do, go get stranded in Ellis Island.
Best Kept Secret in Las Vegas!. My brother and I discovered the Ellis Island Barbecue by accident about 8 years ago. I have never had babyback ribs so good. The price is more than reasonable. Whenever we have visitors, we always take them to the barbecue and they enjoy the ribs and chicken as much as we do. In fact, on return trips, some of these people go on their own to have the ribs. I usually am able to enjoy my ribs the next day as I am unable to finish a full rack in one sitting. I recommend getting the full rack so that you too can have leftovers! My one complaint is the beans that come on the platter (along with coleslaw, corn cobettes & garlic toast) are not very good. We have mentioned this to the waiters and we have been told the owner likes them, so they are still serving them.
best food ,in walking distance of the strip..
the patio is my favorite. you can sit and relax, without the noise of the slots. and children love it, as they aren't being told to stay away from the gambling. it's a comfortable area . the food is great and prices are also GREAT!!! the service was very good ,too. so, much food the kids could take back to the hotel . you know how kids like to say they're hungry just after you've left the resturant. so , the to-go box was great.
also, we had the resturant inside food two days, later. the food was great , like the ribs we had on the patio, the steak dinner was very good . we had great service, very clean and comfortable resturant. the prices were also, very reasonable. i give the highest rating to the ELLIS ISLAND RESTURANT AND PATIO CAFE. SINCERLY,SALLIE.
