Good food

Went here today for a Sunday Funday afternoon with my husband and friend for some food and drinks. We ordered a few appetizers--nachos with "the works," egg roll trio and lazy mans wings. Overall, everything was really good. I think that the nachos were a little overpriced for what we got. For... read more

Most times when we take our grandsons out for dinner we will choose Eli's on Whitney. The food is so good, especially the burgers, that they are always busy. We love it

This place is popular with the locals in the area. My wife and I decided to stop in for an early dinner. It was a Saturday around five and not too crowded. We sat at a table in the bar area. I should have realized what was to come from the beginning. It took ten minutes for our server to... More

Stopped by Eli's on Whitney for a light bite . I was very happy with the salad selection and the crab cakes were the best I've had in ages. They were not dry, and really tasted like crab, not just bread fillers. The wait staff were very responsive and the food was promptly delivered. I will go again soon.

I've been going to Eli's on Whitney and Eli's Pizza for many years (as they are across the street from one another.) They have very tasty food and I have never been disappointed. I love the long list of pizza options, dinner options, to-go options, and deserts. However, over time i've seen the prices inflate quite a bit. I know... More

Love the Eli's Signature Salad. But all of the food is outstanding. Excellent wait staff. I've brought very large parties and we are always treated like royalty. Great apps, delicious meals.

Eli's on Whitney and its sister restaurant, Eli's Brick Oven, are great spots for a sandwich or a full meal. The pizza is a great neopolitan crust and they have some especially good sandwiches. I enjoy the #12 buffalo chicken sandwich at Brick Oven, and Eli's On Whitney (right next door) always has great beers on tap in its spacious... More

First time here. Great menu. Everything from seafood to pizza. Food was delicious...everyone loved their choices. The mac and cheese was a big hit. Service was very good. Beautiful bar in center with sports tv theme but sitting at tables we were able to speak quietly and still hear each other without fighting with those tv as in other sports... More

Have been to Eli's several times the past year and each time it is always enjoyable and never rushed and delishish.Before talking about the food, know that there is a very small parking lot behind it, otherwise we usually end up parking on the side street next to it which is always fine too. Having stopped in again yesterday afternoon... More

Came here with a large group which preordered. Upon arrival, the food was already placed at table with name tags. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was very good as well with items such as quinoa pyramid salad!
