Made my way to the Ellis Island today to try a couple of their beers and enjoy the steak & eggs special.

We're talking about a casino here that happens to host a brewpub. As one might expect, the atmosphere is not particularly publike, but rather quite casinolike. The service is friendly, though not particularly beer-centric, and the food is quite tasty.

I had the English stout and the IPA; both were serviceable if not particularly impressive. Given the state of craft beer availability in Las Vegas, however, it's definitely worth a stop here to get some reprieve from the oceans of Coors and Corona to be found elsewhere. It is also worth noting that the beer is dirt-cheap, and absolutely worth the price (a $2 craft pint here vs. an $8 Corona on the strip).

I am guessing this is what brewpubs look like in Las Vegas. The Ellis Island casino is one block off the Vegas strip and has that dated casino feel.

It is old and full of locals with a main bar in the center of the casino that reminded me of Applebee's for some reason. There is another bar and a few eateries on the outside, but I came to drink.

The service is super friendly, but the quick Vegas style. They have their standard styles, which is fine, traditional but boring. Their IPA was below average but their stout was above average. Nothing was impressive, but for Vegas, this is not a terrible stop.

Price is perfect, $2 beers for 22oz while I was there.

This is a very good brewpub in a casino off the Strip and thus overall has very typical Las Vegas casino vibe and layout- a casino ringed with places to eat and drink, in this case on the smaller scale since this is not one of the big-name places. It has the basic vibe to go with that and also all the smoke, but the bar/dining room part is pretty good, with a nice feel closed in and like a "normal" bar/pub. It's dark, with a low ceiling and some nice seating.

Service we had was good and very friendly and efficient.

The beer selection is limited to a few standards - amber lager, stout, IPA, the like. It is not large or varied. However, the beers we had were truly very, very good - straightforward but solid, characterful, tasty, well-rounded and well-balanced, and both good with food and good session beers.

We had only appetizers and sides such as onion rings and fries, but they were all excellent.

Prices were low.

I always enjoy visiting Ellis Island for the incredible value. The $2.00 draft brews are unbeatable in price. The steak special is a can't miss and is worth a walk from the strip.

My last visit, I took my Fifty Fifty in for a growler fill. It was about 10:00 on a Sunday morning and not busy at all.

The attendant at the bar by the Karaoke denied my request to use my vacuum insulated growler for the ride home. She was incredibly rude about it, and told me I needed to buy their glass growler. Her nastiness and ignorance really amazed me, and revealed their employees lack of knowledge about beer.

I hope they change their policy soon, and school their employees on customer service.

I have been here several times and love the casino, but the beer I could take or leave. The selection never seems to change and I have been to Vegas at various times of year. The quality of the beer I would say is a stepping stone to people just getting away from BMC beer to pursuing other craft beer. The food at the BBQ, restaurant and pizza is outstanding and we stop there for several meals each trip. The gambling is catered to attract the locals, which means looser machines than the strip.

The atmosphere here was not what I expected in a microbrewery, but should have been expected from Las Vegas. The brewery is plain and in the back of a smoky casino that badly needs updating. The beers all tasted the same no matter the style, lager to stout. Was very disappointed overall. Would no recommed

Went here with a group of folks on a bit of a lark.

It's just off the strip, and easy to get to from there, only a couple of blocks, or a cheap cab ride from most hotels.

We went in on a Monday night, which it turns out is Karaoke night. It was a sublime adventure to say the least.

We went to the lounge, which was several tables with bench seating (not too comfy) and waited a few minutes for the server to find her way to us. She took our orders, and after about 10 minutes returned with our pints.

Pints are pints here...20 oz. and they are dirt cheap at $2.50 each. The choices of the house beers are limited, but I had the stout and tried the IPA as well. Neither was stellar, but both made for an easy drinking session beer.

The patrons there seemed like regulars, which is not surprising given a Monday night, and they were friendly enough to us strangers.

Definitely not on a list of places I would add to the must see destinations of Las Vegas, but certainly memorable.

Cheap beers are the draw here. If you need to get away from the strip and enjoy some cheap beers made on site, this is the place. It is smokey, the clientele is weak, and you will quickly realize you ate not on the strip anymore.

The good things are the Heffe, which is a good example of the style and the BBQ Restaurant. The BBQ is dirt cheap for any town America, let alone Vegas. The BJ is beatable if you take the time to count and stick with a less than 4 to 1 bet spread.

The IPA is weak, but when paying $2 for a 22 oz Craft Beer you are not expecting a top notch beer.

Again not for everyone, but I feel it is worth a trip when in Vegas to form your own opinion.

Ellis Island is off strip and has a low rent clientele. It can often be horribly smoke filled, as the lower rung shucks in the deadly impurities of their off brand cigarettes That said, I think it is one of the best places to drink beer in Las Vegas. How can you beat $1.75 or less for a 22oz draft? None of their beers are particularly distinctive, but hours old freshness takes them a long way. I usually have the Hefe or Amber. Very fresh beer goes down so easy. When I am feeling poor after a beat down at Ballys I like to walk over, being careful not to trip over the aggressive bums on Tropicana or be hit by the speeding traffic, and have a great meal of Metro Pizza slices and beer. Other times I'll come in at 6am and have the steak breakfast, $5.99 with a beer!!! Still others I'll come in for the excellent barbecued ribs. The female bartenders tend to be very attractive. Sometimes the table games are lively. EI has it all, in a space smaller than a conference room at the Venetian. Can't beat it.

I was in town for the better part of a week, just around the corner at the Tuscany for a conference. I've been here before many years ago, back when we used to hold the March Madness event in Las Vegas (before we realized Reno was better for so many not reasons, but most significantly, the beer is better and you get more bang for the buck). Easy enough to find, one street over from the strip, kind of close to the corner of Koval and Flamingo as I recall. I like how there's a divey strip club and divey brewery on each side of my hotel. No need to drive. . .

So I saunter in, and its really dark, kind of like Big Dogs was. Its Vegas I guess, if you're not the Venetian I guess, why not dim the lights and help yourself out image wise I guess. Another negative for me, is the clientele is largely made up of non beer centric hick and inner city rejects from SoCal for the most part. Expect some strange looks hovering between "the strip is that way" and "i wanna watch you strip this way".

Drank every beer they had, none of them even approached being impressive, the stout achieved average land. Nothing exotic. Started having flashbacks of being here in 2005 or so for some cheap grub late night.

Service doesn't really seem too enthused when you ask some simple beer questions, but its a casino first, brewery is kind of the afterthought it seems. Beers are like all from the same yeast strain and beer kit it seems, unadventurous, lacking hops, carbonation, ingredients. . .

Absolutely horrific selection of shit even worse than BMC in terms of bottle selection. And yet it is still better than Sin City Brewing.

The price vs. what you get makes this place an off-strip, locals oriented gem.

Atmosphere - If not for the gaming, I’d rate the atmosphere as a 2.0-2.5, but I bumped it up to 4 since it is also a casino, complete with table games. I’ll take black jack over nice furniture and good TV’s any day. The atmosphere, as far as casinos go, is similar to what you find downtown/Fremont St. If you’re used to The Strip and The Strip only, you might find it to be a little seedy, but unlike most of The Strip, this place actually has some character.

The beer – There is nothing earth shattering here. You have 6 beers to choose from, Stout, Dark lager, Amber, Hefe, IPA and Light. They range from fair to good and though none of them stand out as remarkable, they are served up quickly, cold and cheap. 20 oz glasses are $1.75 at the bar and a little more in the restaurant. You get what you pay for. Better than macro but nothing special. I genuinely liked the amber and dark lager. The Hefe was slightly disappointing, but again, how disappointed can you really be in a brew that cost less than $2? The stout is decent and the IPA is lacking in bitterness. Due to this, I’d, personally call it a pale ale and if graded on those terms give it a C+.

The food - If you get here after 7 pm for dinner, you’ll likely have plenty of time to sample these beers and try your hand at the tables and slots because waits for the Restaurant (yes it is just called “Restaurant”) or BBQ can be 45 minutes or more if the place is hopping. If you’re hungry right then, metro pizza is probably a better option than the restaurant, but I like to drink and play a little before dinner, so it works out great. The off-menu steak special was still $7.99 as of Jan 2011 and includes a vegetable, choice of potato, salad or soup and a beer. I would rate it as good-for-the-price, but the prime rib is just plain good, without qualification. It is $12.99 and comes with the same set up as the off-menu special, but instead of an 8 oz sirloin you get a large, tender slab of prime rib that has to weigh in at least at 12 oz. and is probably closer to a pound.

Breakfast is good here and I’d also recommend the fish and chips. There are always daily specials as well. The ribs in the BBQ are tender and delicious, if a little on the sweet side. Metro Pizza offers up some decent pies at a good price.

Being a fan of downtown that has little use for the strip, I’m right at home here and make a point to visit every time I’m in Vegas. Decent, cheap beer and reasonable priced good food keep me coming back to my favorite off-strip property.

We decided to check out the local beer scene before going to an Alice in Chains show in Vegas. Doesn't seem like there's much of a scene out there, but I did find this little place. It's a small casino, with a small restaurant/brewpub off the side. The bar seats about 10-15 people I suppose, with seats and booths about. Atmosphere was pretty sleazy, which I guess gives it some character. About five homemade brews on tap, and nothing too extraordinary. The wildest thing I saw was a "dark ale," which is what I got. The bartender was pretty friendly and attentive. Food was decent and inexpensive. Nothing outrageous, just general pub fare and comfort food.

I would love to go back to Vegas soon, but I have a feeling this place won't be on my to-do list when I return.

Atmosphere - Well as you can see from the name that Ellis Island is a Casino with a brewery in it. So just like any other casino in town as you walk in there's slot machines everywhere. Off in the front corner by the BBQ joint is a rather large brewery setup behind glass. In the middle of the casino there's a square bar with video gambling machines in the top to get some beers at. I went to the restaurant which has an old never updated feel to it.

Quality/Selection - During my visit they had four beers on tap a Light Lager, Hefe, Amber, and a Stout. The beers ranged from just ok to good. Nothing crazy is being brewed here and at I think $1.75 for a pint I can't really complain too much about it.

Service - While sitting at the casino bar the bartender was nice and quick with my beers. While sitting in the restaurant my waitress was also kind and quick with things so theres nothing to complain about there.

Food - The wife and I ate ate the restaurant and we each got the off the menu steak dinner. I don't know if it was from going in there just hoping it would be edible but it was actually a pretty damn good meal.

Overall if your hungry for a cheap steak dinner and cheap beers this is a good place to go.

this place is bordering on depressing. depressing crowd, depressing decor. looked like lots of locals gambling or drinking away their paycheck. i guess that's going on everywhere in this town, but it looks more depressing in this joint.

i hate grading businesses poorly, but wow, the two beers i tried were bad.

when i went, five beers were on tap: the hefeweizen, amber, stout, an ipa and i can't remember the fifth. the ipa is a new brew i was not expecting to find. as i've got a new found love of ipa's, i think my excitement showed in my face when the bartender mentioned they had an ipa. he quickly said, "i don't think it's strong enough." i wasn't sure what he meant, so i asked, "not strong enough in terms of hoppiness or abv?" he said it's not very hoppy.

he gave me a sample and he was right. no hops at all, tasted like a lager. pass. now that i think about it, if he told me it was a lager, i probably wouldn't have minded it. i got the stout next, and while it was marginally better than the ipa, there just wasn't much flavor at all. i was so disappointed i considered abandoning the unfinished glass, but thought that would be rude.

i may give their other beers a try if i've got time to kill, but i'd have a hard time recommending any craft beer fans visit this place specifically for the beer. it's cheap though, only $1.50 a pint. however, if i've got transportation, i'd rather get $1.50 pints at the triple seven brewpub at the main st casino downtown.

Went here for a bite to eat after having a few beers at Sin City/Miracle Mile. A few thoughts:

The off-the-menu steak special is currently $7.99, including the steak (delicious), garlicky green beans, choice of taters (I had the diner-type fries, which were great), a salad (mediocre), and a 23 oz. beer. The food was very good overall, and a bargain to be sure. I had the dark ale, which I found thin and somewhat buttery, but not bad overall. I wish I could have tried another beer, but didn't have it in me.

I liked the atmosphere: stamped naugahyde booths with paintings of naval battles on the walls. It reminded me of the type of restaurant my parents would bring us to in the 70's. Service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant and coffee shop are the same place, and the coffee wasn't bad either. Definitely a locals casino, and more down-home than the Strip. The bartender at Sin City told me it can get pretty sketchy there late night, but it was fine during the day.

If I were to go back to Las Vegas, I would go back, as the food is a tasty bargain, and this place is the perfect antidote to the Strip.

They had a good amount of beers that are brewed in-house, that represent most of the major styles. I had the Stout, and shared an IPA. First of the price of the beer was fantastic. I believed I paid $2 for a pint. The stout was decent. Mild on taste, hints of roasted coffee, and some bitterness, though not enough to counter sweetness. The IPA tasted fairly, needed more hops at all stages, bittering, flavor, and aroma. Actually tasted like a normal Pale. The food on the other hand was good, and if you factor in the price, it was great. They had a good selection and all of it was very reasonable for what you got. As said in a previous review, go for the good food, and cheap beer.

dont go for the beer, but go for the food! the BBQ is out of this world, The steak special is off the charts in the cafe, the football food and beer specials in the Karaoke bar are incredible, and the 2 for 1 pizza's on sunday at metro are out of this world. You can get out of there with a few brews and dinner for under 10 bucks pretty easy, or 15 if you go to the bbq place, and im talking having a few beers. Its a local Gem, and well worth the trip. I frequent it for the food. and for $2 or less for a microbrew, you cant go wrong. and hey, if you dump a few bucks in the slots you drink for free anyway so have at it...i love this place...beer is middle of the ladder, but food is top notch...try the stout or the hef, and dont leave without at least sipping the root beer

Had great time at Ellis Island beer was very good had the amber ale 20 oz of cold brew the bartender was very friendly Benny was his name the casino is a smokie funky joint but thats ok so if your not a beer snob and dont mind a old locals casino where the brew is good and cheap this is the place.I used to go to The Pub at the Monte Carlo but at 8$-10$ a pint forget about it i take the shuttle from the Orleans it drops you off at Bills Gamling House only a short walk from the strip behind Ballys. The casino has mostly video poker waitress service is good great pizza at Metro pizza kind of a long line but i went there for the beer and i wasn't dissapointed cant wait to go back.

We hit here for dinner and brew everytime we're in Sin City. I first found out about this place the first time I was out several years ago; was the second brewery in Vegas I visited (Monte Carlo being the first--they no longer brew). Decent but very inexpensive brews: first few times out they were $1 for a 20 oz draw, when we were out this past March, they were "expensive" at $1.50 a draw and of course, free if you're playing. Their stout has a rather thin mouthfeel but it's quaffable, as are the other brews I've had there. Nothing extraordinary but decent. The big plus here is the bbq that's served in their beer garden. If you join their free slot club, you can get GREAT bbq for less than $10; their ribs/chicken combo is more food than I can eat. The "downer" of doing the bbq versus the restaraunt is that the bbq is served "picnic style": plastic plates and utensils. Still worth it as even my finicky eating brother and his wife thought it was quite tasty. We'll continue to come back here whenever we're in town. Definitely one of Vegas' best kept secrets IMHO.

This is definitely a value play if you happen to be in the area. Waited about 15 min for a table at the restaurant. Pork roast was fairly decent. House brews on tap were $1.75 for a pint. I tried the Amber, the American Wheat and the Stout. No flaws, more or less style-correct, nothing too exciting but hit the spot. Really no hop or yeast character that stands out, this is all mellow malt, low IBU, fairly low carbonation, served at drinking temp, so very easy to knock back several while you wait. Over by the Metro Pizza corner you can see the brewery behind glass. Looked like a couple copper boiling kettles, maybe 4 or 5 conical fermenters, several storage tanks...hey, I guess it's really brewed here.

Well...we decided to stop here on a whim looking for a late breakfast/early lunch on day #2 of our Vegas trip. Was about a 10 minute walk from Bally's off the strip.

Inside...dark, shady, almost scary. Certainly nothing like the other casinos in the strip area, and even a bit dingy compared to the ones in old Downtown.

We circled around before deciding to eat at the restaraunt...got seated right away, but it took awhile for our initial service to arrive, they were between shifts. Once she did though, she was SUPER friendly and prompt.

I ordered the Amber, my buddy the Dark, and the girls each got the Hefe. The Stout was about a B-, The Amber was ok, and the Hefe was pretty bad, though the price was unbelievable (20oz for $2.50).

We split an appetizer sampler, and each ordered something different. The food was OK, filling and edible though we werent expecting much.

Overall, it was fun, cheap, and filling. Probably wouldnt bother going back again but it was a "unique" taste of Vegas.

"Casino & Brewery" is clearly a Nevada concept. And they offer a $6.99 filet mignon dinner. So....me and my friends came here to do all three: eat, drink, and gamble.

The casino is small and smokey inside. A karaoke bar is at the left, further up is the restaurant, and to the right is a square shaped bar with video poker. Even the inside of the restaurant looked out of date. Lots of scarlet red color on the inside, and because the restaurant isn't enclosed from the casino, you get your share of cigarette smoke.

EI offered 5 different house beers: stout, amber ale, dark lager, hefeweizen, and light lager. I had the dark lager and it wasn't bad. My friend's hefe however didn't taste like a real hefe. Beer is served in weizen-shaped glassware, which is a nice change of pace from the usual shaker pint glass. Only $2 per beer....sweet.

In the restaurant, it took a long time to get a waiter to serve us. We all ordered the $6.99 filet mignon dinner, which is not on the menu. The filet was fine, the green beans were too, as was the soup, but the steak fries tasted like they were leftover.

EI labels itself as being the 9th best brewery in America. In what year, 1978? To be fair, the beer isn't terrible (and better than all those free Heniken's you get playing slots on The Strip), and it is cheap, so EI has that going for it.

After a beer at Hofbrauhaus, we swung by here on the way back to the Strip. When you enter, it's just another smoky casino. The bar is in the center of the floor. Walked up and saw the tap handles were all pouring the EI beers. The two bartenders were on a "shift change" and no one was pouring drinks. So we walked around for a bit and went back to the bar for a second attempt to order beers. They had five beers on tap, plus root beer. I ordered a Stout, and my wife got a Weise. Tall 20 oz pours were $1.50 a glass! And I swear this was before happy hour. Beers were a bit below average, and probably only worth that much though. Don't come here looking for a brewpub atmosphere to enjoy a few beers in. And don't come here looking for stellar beer. But, if you want some cheap table games and that $6.95 steak dinner, then swing by for a brew. Cheapest brewpub beer I can ever remember.

Christmas day at Ellis Island. Can life get any better? We spent the day pounding the strip and then had a wonderful Chrismas dinner at Spice Market and wanted a beer. Instead of going back to the Paris, we walked around back to the Ellis Island.

One long street removed from the Strip, the bar is located beside a run down gas station and in a severly neglected old casino. The place reeked of nostagic '50's design and burned out light bulbs.

The brewery consists of a restaurant, karaoki bar, casino, and a brewery. Unfortunately, we saw a few tap handles in the karaoki bar first. We weathered the heavily smoky bar for a pint of each of their beers. All four- light, wheat, amber, and stout were average to above average. Where they lacked on character, the brewing practices of all seemed clean, leaving no detectable off flavors. After paying only $2 for an imperial pint of each, I felt much better about going there.

The staff knew what was on tap but offered not insight beyond that. The two girls who helped us were very friendly and eager to serve- no reason not to tip well.

Unfortunately the beers were difficult to assess from the aroma standpoing because the bar smelled like a combination of cigarette smoke, vomit, and people who don't own soap. The interior was dim, which made the outdated, worn, and beat down furnishings and bar very uninviting.

Equally as uninvitable are the locals who knew eachother by name and liked to stair aimlessly at us outsiders. Others at the casino looked and acted as if they hadn't seen the sun since last may. Then there are the wreckless few who were likely carying drugs, guns, and teeth all in the same pocket.

As we left the karaoki bar, we noticed that all the beers were availabe at the center casino bar, restaurant, and throughout the casino so our requirements at the karaoki bar wan't necessary.

As unusual as our visit was, I feel that I should have tried to make it out to Ellis Island during the day when I may have been able to speak to the brewers, maybe take a tour, and enjoy the beers in a more appropriate place at the bar.

Boiling it down, go there for the beers and not the experience.

I have to agree with others that this is the best bargain, bang for the buck we found in Vegas. A long block from the strip behind Bally's but worth the walk. There were 4 brews on tap a lite, amber, hefe and a dark. There was a root beer and egg nog. Beers were $3.00. All I had was the amber and it was very passable. The steak dinner has gone up to $6.95 and met our needs. No this isn't ritz and glitz. I hate the phrase "where the locals go" but if I lived in Vegas this is where I would go. They were having a BBQ special that night, fresh baby backs on a charcoal fire and people were enjoying that.
