Ellis Island Casino and Brewery
We’d like this place even if it wasn’t in Las Vegas. It’s not a big shiny Strip casino but it is a casino with plenty of slots & table games and its location just one block off the Strip behind the Hilton on Koval makes it easy to get to whenever the mood strikes for a little gaming and prime rib. Ellis Island is a lot more than just a cool little local’s casino, it’s also a micro-brewery with brews that get high marks with the brew-pub crowd. The biggest draw is the food. The ambitious menu features all the standard Vegas fare including prime rib, steaks, seafood and Italian dishes as well as genuine BBQ. The best part of all is complete dinners, including a pint of their beer or their homebrewed root beer are all less than $12.00. In addition, befitting a Las Vegas casino a large breakfast menu is available 24 hours a day. Located in the shadow of the Strip, Ellis Island is a great place to fill up on Vegas grub without breaking your gambling budget.
