Starving at 9:00 p.m. on a Sunday night, I decided to try a standard in Hamden, Eli's on Whitney. I ordered the bacon burger slider and my partner ordered a burger minus the bread. Wow! the burgers were great! Grilled to perfection, moist and juicy. What a lovely surprise!! Thank you Eli's!

Stopping for a late night bite after a college event. A party of six with one adult with mobilty issues, we were greeted and seated without incident. The hostess was very accomodating and the wait staff very friendly. Good food with good friends!

We get food from here often. Staff is friendly. Good is good. Especially like the tilapia, the penne pasta, and the veggie burger.

We were visiting someone at Quinnipiac University and had an early dinner. Our server was excellent, bringing us water with lemon immediately. She promptly took our order for apps and entrees. The calamari had both rings and tentacles were lightly fried with some tasty sauce. The nachos and buffalo wings had just enough spice for us. The entrees were a... More

Kids love the cheese steak egg rolls; we had the special pizza, chicken pot pie, burgers and scallop special. It's a large sports bar that recently expanded so there's plenty of space. It can definitely great crowded but we've always had good service. Bar definitely pick up with the 20s/30s crowd at night. Good place to meet friends for drinks.

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
