HENDERSON, NV – “Downtown Henderson makes a big comeback.” That’s the headline many business owners, investors and developers have been waiting to hear. One local favorite who hasn’t been standing around waiting is the Emerald Island Casino, Nevada’s only All-Penny Casino. Twin brothers and owners, Tim and Mike Brooks say the wait is over! For the new Emerald Island Grille that is. It’s located just inside the Emerald Island Casino.
After opening its doors in 2003, the casino is proud to announce the completion of its long awaited expansion and remodel with a grand opening on Saturday February 21st, 2015. “We’ve just completed a major restaurant renovation and expansion that has been in high demand for many years,” Tim Brooks stated. “We have given our guests what they’ve been asking for and have doubled the size to better serve them because that is what it is all about.” The restaurant expansion adds a second dining room with an additional 1000 square feet, capable of serving an additional 60 plus guests and has a new, modern, open exhibition style kitchen for diners to enjoy.
The completed new expansion involves new flooring, new furniture, fixtures, booths and the new expansive kitchen. The décor is beautiful and refreshing and we are happy to report that guests love it. When you arrive, the smell of smoked meat, smiles and a sense of optimism fills the air and at the official grand opening guests can expect that the festivities will be inviting. Tim Brooks and the entire dedicated Emerald Island team of professionals will be serving up some very special treats to show their appreciation. The celebration will begin at 11:00 am as the Emerald Island staff and management along with Henderson City officials and the Henderson Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to cut the ribbon that will usher in a new era for Downtown Henderson that is just beginning.
Emerald Island has reason to be enthusiastic about the future as there are numerous projects in the works such as SOUTHEND on Water, a muti-use retail office and residential plan, Tin Pan Flats, apartments, retail space; and dining and developments like Cadence Homes, a master planned community covering 2200 acres near Downtown Henderson. These welcome additions bring homes – and homes mean people – closer to the Downtown Henderson community.
The expanded Emerald Island Grille is a welcome beginning to the growth expected in the area over the next few years. One can almost hear the street lights say, “Welcome home to Downtown Henderson.”
