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 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
