The Ellis Island Casino & Brewery is located near the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The casino offers 350 gaming devices, as well as a restaurant and a micro-brewery.

Ellis Island caters to locals, especially casino workers, and is known for its karaoke bar and low-price steak specials.[1]

History[edit]

The Village Pub was opened in 1967 by Frank Ellis, who eventually passed it on to his son, Gary.[1]

The name was changed to Ellis Island around 1986.[1]

Ellis agreed in 2004 to manage and take joint ownership of the nearby Tuscany Suites and Casino, which had struggled to attract customers in its first year.[1] The agreement fell apart when Tuscany officials allegedly backed out.[2]

Later that year, Ellis signed on to the planned 36-story Aqua Blue condo-hotel project to replace the adjacent Super 8 motel. Ellis Island would manage the Aqua Blue casino, and would itself be renovated to match the new tower.[3] However, the project was cancelled in June 2005, due in part to rising construction costs.[4]

Ellis Island is well known for their "Steak Special" where for many years, the special was $4.99 but over the last fews years the price has been creeping up 100% to the current price of $9.99
