    Only ate there once, an early breakfast around 6:30 am. I dont remember what I had but I do remember loving it! I also love the kind of "divey" vibe it gives...:beer:

    The ribs. Served after 4pm daily. Before 4 you can't beat the 7.95 full steak dinner including a beer. They changed the rules recently and you have to run .50 or $1 through a machine and then swipe a players card for the off menu special
     
    Bonus early day Downtown

    I second the ribs. If you have a 2 for 1 coupon even better. If your by yourself eat one there and take the other back to the room for a late night meal. Strange thing though you can't order the ribs to go, but you can request a doggie bag.:confused2:

    Oh, and the steak is a pretty good value too.

    The first of November only had to swipe player card for a coupon slip at a machine by the slot club for the special. We did play but it was after eating. Well worth it for the price, steak or ribs both tasty.

    I have had their prime rib dinner several times. It's very good. Not a huge cut but adequate and has always come medium rare as ordered. It's $12.99 and includes all the sides.

    My favorite at Ellis is their shrimp dinner. Not their steak & shrimp dinner, those are different shrimp. Their shrimp dinner has 5 HUGE fried shrimp, choice of potato and soup/salad

    In all my years of going to Vegas, I've had Ellis Island prime rib medium rare over 20 times and have NEVER had a bad one. $12.99 with sides and a craft beer.

    The prime rib is one of my faves at EI. It's not well trimmed but it's real prime rib and not another roast passed off as it like they do at some of the buffets. You get all the fixings as the steak dinner including the microbrew. Another one of my favorites is the ham steak breakfast. The ham is as big as the plate and then they squeeze the eggs and everything else on their. Just love it! I love the french toast but I think that's a missed opportunity. I know restaurants like to do french toast either on it's own or with bacon or sausage but they would kill with some sort of full platter breakfast featuring the french toast. Fortunately their ala carte items are so reasonable so you can kinda make your own.

    Excellent Steak Special

    Every trip to Vegas we have at least one visit to Ellis Island for the "not on the menu" steak special. Have always had a great steak with seasoned green beans, mashed (or baked) potatoes and a EI brewed beer. It can't be bad if you keep going back and I keep going back.
