I have only been to Eli's on Whitney once to watch a World Cup game. There are TVs all around the central bar area so it is quite easy to get a seat with a good viewing angle. The menu was typical for a sports bar, we got a burger and nachos for an appetizer. The food was pretty good... More

The guys went there for late night snacks and drinks. The service was not so good and the apps were over priced for the quality. They are busy more with the early twenties set

Excellent restaurant from service to meals. Cannot go wrong with any menu item whether it's an appetizer or entree. All salads are great. Especially love the avocado salad....in a wonderfully shaped tower, and I order a side of salmon. Sante Fe salad is another fav. Burgers, pasta, seafood, all tasty and generous portions.

Good: Quality food, generous portions, good variety of items on the menu, Bad: Happy hour in bar does not carry over into the restaurant and they won't allow you to buy your own at the bar to take back to your table. Our waitress, Whitney, could not answer our questions about the daily drink specials. She never checked on us... More

We have eaten here and love the food, so when we needed take-out pizzas for a casual, before-graduation lunch, we didn't hesitate. Everything was ready when we arrived and was still hot when we got it home. They provided paper plates and napkins so we didn't have to worry about cleanup. Yummy and convenient, a great combo!

They accommodated 8 of us on an early Sunday afternoon and were very pleasant all around. Nice variety on the menu and all dishes were tasty and fairly priced, from the house-made veggie burger to the chicken pot pie.

Eli's has the best salads. Everything is so wonderful and they do a great blackened chicken on request. Their hamburgers are wonderful too. Their drink menu could use an update but overall we love it when visiting Hamden to see our daughter.
