(Grand Island, NE) – Grand Island Casino Resort announces the completion of a key phase of construction.

On Wednesday, May 15, 2024, Elite Casino Resorts executives joined the construction team in the traditional signing of the final beam. The beam, part of Ruthie’s Steak & Seafood, was hoisted into place, completing the highest point of the building.

At a construction team celebratory luncheon, Elite Casino Resorts CEO Dan Kehl commented, “This is an important point in Grand Island Casino Resort Construction. Thank you to everyone for getting us this far on this project. It’s going to be a beautiful, first-class facility.”

While finishing exterior projects will continue, the closing in of the exterior starts a shift to more inside work and is a step closer to project completion.

The new facility will be loaded with amenities including:

• 750 slot machines and 20 table games.

• The gaming floor will have a show lounge that features local and regional entertainment.

• 162-room hotel with a full-service salon and spa plus an indoor-outdoor pool.

• Our food outlets will feature Ruthie’s Steak & Seafood Restaurant, our fine dining outlet. We will also have casual dining in our Draft Day Sports Lounge and a family dining outlet.

Grand Island Casino Resort continues to be on schedule for an early 2025 opening. Visit the website and social media pages for information on construction progress and available career opportunities.
