Is it worth it? no, some love it because its cheap, or I should say because its good value for the money as they will say, the Casino itself is seedy, but you should be ok during the day..

I have walked to and from EI by myself- female/alone and I had no problems.

Some like it while others don't. You are not talking about a $200 meal so try it and if you don't like it you don't have to eat there again. You are not risking a whole lot of money or time.

If you like steaks, their steak special is excellent, excellent, excellent. Its so much food for 7.49 including a draft beer.

I always order mine medium rare, and I reccomend that as well, medium might make it a bit dry because they flame broil their meat.

There are lots of people walking from the strip to EI and back..no problem going alone. WE love this place..be prepared for a wait.

Is Ellis Island good value for the money.....hell yes!

Is Ellis Island Steak better then many others who charge much much more......yes!

Does Ellis Island have the best steaks in Vegas ....no.

The Outback is a prime example of a places who's steaks are vastly inferior in taste but are at least 3 times more and up.

There is no reason to go to EI in my opinion.

Oh I enjoy eating there, it's not fancy at all, but it's a good meal at a great price.

We ate there twice during our visit last month, once for the steak special and then for the bbq, both were excellent and great deals! We walked from the IP once and we all thought it wasn't too bad of a walk and we had no problems, I don't think you will have any problems.

The bbq doesn't open until about 4:30pm and there is a line usually when they open.
