    On my next trip, I'll be staying one night downtown. Which means I'll have a dinner meal and then breakfast before I checkout.

    I've been downtown a few times before, but all those visits are just a quick pass through, not a whole lot of eating or gambling.

    So I'm looking for some suggestions on where I should have dinner and breakfast.

    A side question: is Ellis Island still a good place to go? Do they still have that off the menu special? I've been reading TRs lately, but nobody seems to go there anymore....

    depends on budget. Cheap meals to fairly high price (not as high as strip)

    Breakfast would probably be low budget.

    Dinner would be something good. Good can be loosely defined as delicious, or wallet friendly but still enjoyable

    Breakfast I would suggest the buffet at Main Street Station. Decent food and decent price. Weekday has fewer options then the weekend, but still plenty of food.

    Dinner I would suggest Redwood Steakhouse inside the Cal, or Second St Grill inside Fremont. Reservations almost a must at both places. Neither will break the bank.

    I'm usually not a fan of the lower priced buffets but lower priced breakfast buffets are just fine and MSS's breakfast buffet is good. I agree with Joe on his dinner choices, both are excellent. I don't know if the OP is traveling solo or not but if not and you want something delicious, old school and romantic go to Hugo's Cellar.

    If you like doughnuts for breakfast, I recommend checking out Donut Bar.
     
    Hopefully the weather will be nice.

    Donut Bar - I've read good things.

    I don't know directions other than the main hotels. Say I'm at the end of Fremont by the canopy near the D. Can you tell me which way I'd walk and direct me there?

    Go down Carson street toward container bar and away from plaza. If you go a block too far you can always eat a pancake at EAT on the opposite corner.

    Hugo's Cellar at the 4 Queens is the best Downtown restaurant by far. If you're going to dinner Downtown, that's the place to go.

    I highly recommend dinner at Triple George - just behind the Fremont Hotel. Great food, awesome service and prices are quite affordable. I had the chicken pot pie and it was HUGE! All I can say is the sauce was velvety and delicious!

    Elllis Island steak special after playing $10 through the machines. Print both coupons. Includes a salad and to me was worth every penny. :feedme:
