I lived there for 32 years and I can say it's a locals place. Everyone enjoys eating there. Great food and good prices. (People LOVE the ribs). Good prices continue at the bar. Small but nice little casino.

Have been multiple times to Ellis Island BBQ, always fantastic food at great prices. The BBQ restaurant is in the back corner of Ellis Island and there is occasionally a wait to eat, it's worth the wait!! The menu consists of 4 items, that's all you need as they do them all so well. The casino attached is always lively... More

Found this place off the strip via the trip-advisor reviews so glad we did. The food was really good, unfortunately it was late and after have a few of the craft ales for 3 dollars, could only really order a burger. It was cooked perfectly. We will be returning before the week is out for Ribs and Chicken.

Great simple food, the ribs were amazing, you may have to wait 20 to 30 minutes for a table but it is worth it.This is not a romantic high end restaurant, so if that is what you want it's not for you, but if you want good quality food at great prices get yourself down there.

This is yet another place that serves "BBQ" ribs and chicken. NOT!! The ribs again are "Fall off the bone" because they're par boiled and thrown on a grill and smothered with BBQ sauce to have the customer think, "Man, that's GREAT BBQ ribs!!" Chicken was ok. I guess to serve the amount of people coming in this place for... More

They were tender and yummy and servings large size.... More

Only 2 items on menu! Chicken or Ribs! One or the other or combo!! Easy! Get a players card to get a discount on dinner, with s coupon from kiosk! It's a small area tucked in behind the main cafe! Seating is a little limited, but they move people pretty fast. Food is all prepared, so plate it, serve it!... More

After visiting the Ellis Island Casino and eating at their café we received a call from Steve at the Ellis Island Casino inviting us to come try their BBQ restaurant. We are certainly glad he called!! To be honest we probably would have eaten at another casino on the strip, but decided since the meal at the café the night... More

NY Strip steak, scrambled eggs and O'Brien potatoes - all for $6.99. The steak was excellent - flavorful and tender. I would order this steak off of any steakhouse menu! Highly recommend even though its off the Strip!

This place was not good at all. The beer was terrible. The service was ok but overall was so overrated compared to so many good places in Las Vegas.
