Being off the strip makes this a great casino full of fun and great entertainment in the bars at night! The food is great in Snaps and the buffet is OK. The rooms are big and very nice to have a frig in the room too! I love this casino!
Dining update – the former Casa Coscina has been shuttered in favor of a limited menu Mexican eatery named Tres Oles. Tacos, burritos and bowls are offered with nothing on the menu exceeding $9.99. In addition to the limited menu, this restaurant is only open for dinner Thur-Sat from 4:30PM to 9:30PM.
Video Poker upgrade
Sometime since my last visit, 5 video poker (VP) machines near Marilyn's lounge were upgraded. These machines now offer full pay schedules at the 25 cent level that include Double Bonus (100.17%), 9/6/90 JOB (100%), Double Double Bonus (99.96%), and NSUD (99.73%). Also available at the 5 and 10 cent level are 10-coin NSUD. $4 coin-in are required to earn 1 point on these machines and they are excluded from point multipliers. The bank of 10 coin droppers with 9/6 JOB are still available, but those
do not award any slot club points.
Value, Value, Value
So listen, I've played all up & down the Boulder Strip. I have never found any casino there that treats the customer better. The players club is great. They know how to treat their customer right. Plenty of comps, gifts, promo's & PRIZES! I won $500 free play in a wallet at the player during one of their guest promo's. I really just think they go the extra mile to make me feel like coming back!
The things I value here
I see Westie and I share the same interest in this casino. I like staying here when Sam's Town does not beat the price with comps. Monday night I love the Claudine Castro Latin music in the lounge, 10 to 2am and am happy to have a room nearby to stumble into. Eastside Cannery brews their own beer and it is $1.50 or less so the price of having a lounge seat is pretty inexpensive.
The live poker room only deals limit poker and some tournaments, but four hours of play will give you a free buffet for that day. The poker room manager is one of the nicest I have encountered in Vegas. Mostly locals play, but it is softer than Sam's Town limit and like most places, later in the evening, it can get very soft.
There is a classic coin dropping section of good paying video poker, but these earn no points. There are a very few full pay VP machines near Marilyn's lounge. A very high paying jacks or better is reported to be there, although my buddy did not find it. He did play the 10/7 DB last month.
I keep a Bank of America bank account because I can easily get money anywhere I travel. There is a drive in teller right across the street from the Eastside Cannery and it certainly helps with managing to have enough money, but not too much.
The rooms are great. I used to get a corner room with wall to ceiling glass on two sides, but those cost extra now. There is NO RESORT FEE and seniors can get a $10 a night discount if booking on the phone. There is FREE WIFI.
My buddy just stayed there and the difference in the price of a room versus the strip which is all resort fees now paid for his rental car.
Eastside Cannery Creave Steakhous
Carve is their steakhouse. We had a very enjoyable meal there.
The steaks were perfectly cooked of high quality.
The service was friendly and the waitperson was attentive to our wants.
It is a beautiful room which added to our enjoyment.
we are sure you will enjoy it too!
We frequently dine at Carve which is like Rodney Dangerfield in that it gets no respect. On our most recent visit we received a basket of delicious bread and then shared our usual spinach salad that included baby leaves, a warm bacon dressing, and mushrooms For entrees we each ordered a junior cut of prime rib done medium rare and shared a sweet potato with maple butter. The food and service continue to be above average and prices are moderate. Bargain hunters may want to purchase a restaurant.com gift certificate.
Good coffee shop
If you happen to be staying at the Eastside Cannery, Snaps coffee shop is worth a visit. We have dined there 3 times for breakfast and enjoyed each our meals. There are usually one or monthly specials that may be found on the casino’s website under “Dining” and then look for “Eat & Drink Specials”. For the current (January 2013) month a $3.99 M-F breakfast special is offered that includes a choice of bacon or sausage, hash browns and toast, but you must purchase a beverage. There is also a $9.99 prime rib special available (see website for details).
Casa Coscina is the Eastside’s Tex-Mex restaurant. On our first and only visit, we started off with Mango Margaritas (4 Sips out of a possible 5), the obligatory salsas and chips and a delicious tortilla soup. Our entrees were Red Snapper Coscina - sautéed red snapper filet with a zesty tomato and cilantro sauce accompanied by rice and homemade refried beans. A picture of our entrees may be located in Webster’s Dictionary under the page headed “Mediocre”. We concluded the meal by sharing a caramel flan that was very dense, but mildly tasty. ($7, Comps, 1.5 out of 5 Forks)
The restaurant is open Fri-Tue for dinner. Check the website under promotions for the current special. This month's (August) is a $9.99 chile relleno & chicken enchilada dinner that includes soup, rice and refried beans. Add a Corona or margarita for just $2 more.
When the casino opened, a very competitive and liberal inventory of FP video poker was offered, but a few years later the schedules were downgraded. For awhile the only playable VP were the quarter 9/6 JOB coin-droppers located in classic slots room that had been rescued from the former Nevada Palace. About a month ago, (5) 25¢ machines with 100.17% DB, 100.00% JoB, 99.73% NSUD, 99.66% BP, and 99.58% TDB were added. These are located near Marilyn's Lounge and require $4 to earn one point.
Another great meal at Carve
We revisited Carve a few nights ago and again had a great meal. The restaurant is very warm and sophisticated in contrast to the casino proper. My wife and I once again shared an excellent spinach salad and each ordered the small prime rib. The meat was perfectly cooked to medium rare as requested and was accompanied by aus jus plus a horseradish sauce. We also each chose the sweet potato which includes a delicious maple flavored butter. Service throughout was excellent. The restaurant participates in restaurant.com.
We have stayed at the Eastside 3 times since it opened in August 2008. Located on the Boulder Highway, its nearest competitors include Sam’s Town, Boulder Station and Arizona Charlies (Boulder). This is by far the newest casino on the Boulder Highway. The owners also operate the Cannery in North Las Vegas.
The rooms would fall into the mid-range in terms of size and quality though on 2 of the 3 occasions we experienced problems with a dripping showerhead. The major difference between the regular and deluxe rooms is the latter has an extra set of floor to ceiling windows and a Jacuzzi. Rooms boast a flat screed TV and a small refrigerator. There is no swimming pool or parking garage. A senior rate is available by calling reservations.
Still Good with some downgrades
There have been some downgrades to the Video Poker and the Craps now has Max 10X Odds. When it first opened Bob Dancer was consulting there and there were some good VP machines, full pay and close to it. Now, according to vpFREE2 the best games are 9/6 JOB 99.55% and 99.17% Bonus Poker.
The bar on the 16th floor (Club 16) is no longer open as far as I know. It was a real nice place with accommodations for a band or live DJ and dancing. We hope that will come back as it was nice.
The pool is very good and can facilitate outdoor entertainment.
The casino is large with high ceilings, reducing the smoke content of the air. They also have a coin in section of slots and VP for those of you who like the nostalgia of handling those dirty coins.
The buffet is acceptable with a decent cross section of food and coupons for two for one seem easy to obtain from various guide books and the local paper.
There were some new sign up bonuses but they were out of hats when I went there.
The rooms are clean, spacious and all have a good sized flat screen TV.
I would have rated this higher but I've never stayed there, although they've sent me some good offers.
The drawback for me is the lack of proximity to other casinos. I like to hit several in close order like Downtown, But if you like staying at one place this is a good bet.
We stayed at the Eastside Cannery for one night during our recent vacation in Las Vegas because they sent both my wife and me a free room offer plus $5 free play. Because we had never stayed here before my wife said let's check it out. The room was very nice. The free play offer was already on our player's cards so we really didn't need to stay here to get it. There were some slot machines that we had not seen before so we had fun checking them out. Also, we came out ahead in our slot play so it turned out to be a good experience.
The Eastside Cannery is near Sam's Town and the Longhorn Casino. It is relatively new so we have checked it out a few times.
The casino is nice and the buffet good. The first time we went we tried to use a coupon to get a free t-shirt for signing up for the players club but they had run out.
I loved this place
I have discussed this place with a number of friends who were not anywhere near as excited as I was by this place. I admit I am not objective. My first stay I managed a corner room high up and I was just blown away by the amount of glass and the views. I did not want to leave the room. I did not have wifi, but I had my computer and there was a huge table to accomodate my writing and as I wrote, I could glance up and look at the changing views. It was especially amazing at sunset. Being out on Boulder Highway, these views were not views of other huge buildings. I could see places I knew in the distance, but also there was the flat desert stretched out before me and some mountains as well. Here is what I wrote then "I am on the fourteenth floor and two of my walls are glass floor to ceiling like some fancy NY city penthouse. The view is spectacular with mountains in one direction and the strip, downtown and more mountains in the other. These are long views and very different from other hotels views closer into town.
I am watching the lights come on and the sun set over a mountain. It reminds me of the view from the Stratosphere where I often went to see that change from day to dusk to dark and the difference in the colors and patterns and sense of things when the lights come up."
I also like the bathtub. In fact, I took my first bath in years there. It was big and accommodated me comfortably. "this extra wide bathtub with the circular shower curtain that is out of the way and these contoured to the body elbow rests looked inviting. It is the most comfortable bathtub I could imagine."
I liked having a refrigerator in the room and with Walmarts not far across the street, this was very helpful.
I love the geometric theme of the building itself with its rectangles of neon color at night. I liked that this theme is carried over throughout the hotel. "The decorative theme is squares and rectangles. If I look around at lamps and bed backings and even the wall art, I can see that shape is everything here. The curtains are large rectangles of gray and purple. The hallway carpeting is a wonderful jumble of all sizes and colors of rectangles. Carpeting here in the room is stripes which still create long rectangles. They make the room look incredibly long. It is a huge room
Every so often there will be some curve like the arms of the chair or the lamp on the desk."
Plenty of towels.
The room also had a thirties looking reading chair which was very comfortable.
The counters are all granite. The one outside the bathroom is about seven feet long. There is just one sink, but two distinct sections including two towel bars. The little bar like counter that sticks out is a very nice touch both in looks and function."
The second time I went I had received one free night as a promo. I did not get a corner and so the experience was less dramatic. There is still one wall of floor to ceiling glass, but it was not the same. I was going to Sam's Town the next day, so I took the one night. Normally, this might be a check-in and check-out hassle, but I wanted to play live poker late into the night/early morning and was not quite sure of the walk back to Sam's Town, so this one night let me check that out ( I found it rather safe from my viewpoint) and same a few dollars as well.
Directly across the street is a Bank of America. With the dwindling of the issuance of Traveler's Checks, I have wanted to establish a method of getting at my bank account without a fee. This was very simple and worked great.
Many feel they cannot go to the Boulder Strip without a car. This is just short sighted. The Flamingo bus 202 drops right at the parking lot of the Cannery East. It is safer and easier than going to Sam's Town by bus and we can go at any hour. The bus does not just stop there. That is the layover where the driver gets a break. So there is no waiting at a bus stop. We can watch for the bus from the Eastside Cannery circle and walk over when it arrives with plenty of time to board and bus driver probably not too far away.
The 2-4 poker is one of the better games in Vegas. Brian, the brush, is really one of the best poker room managers I have ever met. I watched him explain rules to one obnoxious woman and he was just so diplomatic and yet firm on what was what. There are some tournaments at times and they seemed interesting, although I did not play. The rake, whenever the table was short handed, was immediately dropped on request with no casino whining. Dealers were friendly and fun. Players were a mix, but late at night there were some fish for sure I think the Cracked Aces bonus went until about 9 PM. I hit it once right after I had lost $100 by showing up late. On an earlier day I had earned on square in a sports pool. There were 100 squares and four times when any of us could win. Of course, I hit the first time and was not there to collect.
VP is only good in the classic section where you get quarters and drop them in just like the old days. There I played 9/6JOB. It is interesting to play these old antiques and remember days gone by. I did not win, but the time went slowly with the coin dropping and there is a place to get casino credit on the Player's Card.
The buffet is subpar. However, I ate there twice because it was free with 4 hours of poker play and did not subtract from any hourly comps. Like every subpar buffet there are always something that is unusual. Here is was the cookies. They were really wonderful. It was hard not to just make a meal of cookies.
The Mexican place gets good reports for their food. Most think it is better than the Mexican at Sam's Town. I'll try it next time. I expect they have to have good food because they attract a Latino community.
All the staff was just friendly and good natured. When I checked in, the clerk looked a long, long while to see if in any way I might get a corner room. There just were none available. I was not fluffed off because I was only staying one night.
When looking at prices, seniors should note that in most cases they can get a senior rate by calling that is $10 off the posted rate. So weekdays this means rooms are often $30. On the website is a place to join up for information and maybe for deals. I have not received any deals there, but then I don't play much beyond live poker.
In the lounge last visit I spent an entire night listening to some of the best Latin music I have heard in a while. I ordered the microbrew Cannery beer. Even in the Marilyn lounge, it was a just a dollar a bottle. That was amazing! I had had too much free alcohol that night, so I just nursed one through two sets.
Good deal but I think they charge too much for the rooms considering this property is so far off the beaten track. The rooms are certainly newer and clean, but one would think it would be easier to get an upgrade, especially when the hotel only has 38% occupancy, at least from a standard room to a deluxe room. Hey, we're not asking for the presidential suite at the Biltmore!
Gambling is good if you like Video Poker and Craps, although the atmosphere is a bit on the dry side. The buffet is acceptable and the One Six Sky Bar is interesting although only open on Friday and Saturday when we were there. Good happy hour drink prices and foo foo martinis to be had.
The best on Boulder Highway
We stayed at the Eastside Cannery in December 2008 and I have reservations for April 2009. Room rates continue to be a bargain and no amenity fee is charged.
The rooms are comparatively large at 470 sq ft and nicely furnished with a 42-inch plasma TV, easy chair, writing desk, floor to ceiling windows and a small refrigerator.
The casino is relatively small, but offers all the regular casino games including full pay video poker. Without exception the personnel we encountered in the casino and hotel were very pleasant and helpful. The pool was not open in December, but from our room I could see it is the largest on Boulder Highway.
Dining options include: Snaps, a coffee shop, offering $1.99 breakfasts; Carve, a reasonably priced steakhouse; Casa Coscina, a typical Mexican eatery, We did not try the pseudo (soon to revamped) buffet nor the deli.
Other amenities include a small lounge offering very good weekend entertainment, a relatively large sports book and Pinups bar with entertainment several nights a week. The cons are limited to the absence of a parking garage and long lines at the player's club.
