Ely is not a huge tourist town so that may be a factor but there were not that many slot machines to really keep you interested. The connected "cell" motel rooms and restaurant did make the stay favorable, however.

had a great steak in a very cool restaurant. Price was normal ($20 for 12 oz NY strip) and the venue was awesome. Booths are in a jail cell in a private setting. Very surprised to see this gem of a restaurant in Ely.

Nice food in the fine dining restaurant, each table is in a jail cell, kind of fun eating behind the bar in a private setting. Service was slow. The air is heavily polluted by the smoking in the casino.

Heard about this restaurant in a travel book and looked forward to trying it out. Really a very novel idea and fun to eat your dinner in jail !!

It is right downtown in the older part of town but has some good slots. It was worth a stop to drop a few dollars.
