So had enough of expensive food and was told of this place by a local guide. Feels very local with a lot of people it in. 5 main courses cost us under $80 with beer. Food was good and filling. Will be back again :)

Plenty of food however quality was less than expected (wasn't expecting gourmet). Price was good but that doesn't make it a good value. Disappointed considering the wide positive praise for this restaurant.

You have to go to this place. You might have to wait. But it's worth it. You can't beat paying 12.99 for half of a chicken and half of a slab of baby back ribs. Also you get corn on the cob, baked beans, and garlic bread.

Went for the 10.99 steak and eggs breakfast, found out it was 6.99. The steak was 8oz, seasoned and good. It meal came with eggs, fried potatoes and toast. Yum

We had been told Ellis Island was the best place for a steak and egg breakfast. While others have given Ellis Island great reviews, our visit was poor at best. The ham steak was black around the edges and tough all the way through. The medium over easy eggs were hard. The potatoes were so dark and crispy they were... More

라스베가스 메인거리가 아닌 한적한곳을 찾아가면서도 맛집일까? 여기에 사람이 많이 안올것같은데괜찮을까?라른 의구심이 존재했지만 립을 먹는순간 놀랬음! 합리적인 가격, 나이스한 점원들, 모든 불만불평을 잠재울 맛은 환상적! Incredible! Really dellicious! Reasonable price! Nice crew, You must order rips!!

We always make sure to visit Ellis Island BBQ for the ribs whenever we visit Las Vegas. They are always delicious and the service and price is excellent. The location is a little off the beaten track and is not in a high end casino, but it is well worth a visit if you want the best ribs in Las... More

Have eaten there like 4 times during several trips to Vegas, and each time I was happy with the steak dinner. Next time, tho, I am trying the bbq which looked fantastic. This place smells smokey in the gambling area, but you will be ok in the restaurants. This really is a do not miss place to eat!

Located in a back corner, we almost couldn't find the BBQ restaurant, as there is also a cafe in the same casino. Glad we did find it. The menu is limited (ribs, chicken, or combo dinner), but owing to that it the food came very quickly. Each meal came with sides (bread, corn on the cob, coleslaw) and the meat... More

If you don't go here while you're in LV, you're making a big mistake. Food is awesome! Portions and prices even better! Be sure to join the players club. Instant $$ off at bbq restaurant and on the steak special in the cafe.
