This pub is located at the north end of Main Street in Middletown. They have the best beer list around complemented by a great pub menu selection. Cool atmosphere with unique décor. Make sure you get there early because it gets busy. Parking is available on the street or in a free lot behind Bob's Auto Service off of Kings... More

The food is very good and so is the service. This is a very casual place where friends hang out at the bar which is always packed. My husband enjoys the variety of beers on tap. The french fries are great.

Eli Cannon's has great food. My husband and I will never go back to Eli's. The owner is aweful. He has no business savey at all. He needs to learn some manners and how to treat people.

Great, eclectic place with great craft beers that are swapped out all the time. You never know what will be on tap...just don't be looking for Bud. Go somewhere else for that swill. Food is very good, especially the black bean burgers. The staff is very knowledgeable about the beers despite how often they change, too. The outside is also... More

My husband and I went in there after hearing they had a decent selection of craft beers. The place is in a pretty run down area in Middletown. The waitress that came over was very nice and seemed to know a decent amount about the beers. We asked about a beer that had been offered the night before (we saw... More

The atmosphere of Eli's reminded me of a cool hang out straight out of Brooklyn. I was excited to go here one for the name (my cats name:)) and being reminded of home. When we got inside the confusion and claustrophobia begins. No hostess was around to seat us, we had to seek her out and the waiter was very... More

Patience is your best friend at this place! Great atmosphere, good food, wretched service! The place could make so much more money if they cared about their customers!

Eli's has been around forever and just keeps getting better and better. Lots of beers on tap, great wings, yummy burgers and some really fine fish tacos!! As I'm not a beer drinker, I usually order a margarita here. The interior is decorated with all kinds of stuff hanging from the ceiling and walls- old signs, tricycles, neon lights -... More
