Unique decor and good burgers

We met friends here for brunch and had burgers and beer. Burgers were great and nice beer selection. Also SAE Several Other THINGS I would like to try. Decor is loaded with antiquities and very interested...tho cluttered and a bit dusty.

Its a bit of a dive-y bar but the service is good and the food is awesome. We had the crocodile bits which were interesting but good.

I have been to Eli's 100 times...always a good time with my kids, by myself, as a couple, with a group of friends.... They have a huge chalk board with different micro brews changed all the time...seems like daily. The food is also very good. The menu, the venue, and the experience in general has been very nice!!

Stopped in to check it out. Mandy our bartender was superb...friendly and very knowledgeable concerning the extensive beer selection. The bar itself was was very cool. My niece and I had a great time there and will definately go back the next time we are in Middletown, Ct.

I ordered MexiCali wrap with Cajun fries. The wrap has different ingredients v. Previous menus. It is peculiar why they would keep name the same. Actually, menu should state fries as the entree with the wrap as side dish. From kitchen,came 1 lbs of fries with the very dwarfed wrap. Poor. Mac & cheese was good per my co-diner. Hamburger...

Really really great hamburgers. Tons of choices and variety, all were great when we ordered and even though it was packed the food came out really fast. Server Sarah was great and treated us with extra pickles before the meal ;)

Went here for dinner last night. Took 30 min's to get a table at 7:00pm on a Tuesday. Ordered the Brussel Sprouts and goat cheese balls app-came out with 95% sprouts, and only 3 small cheese balls. The balance was way off, the sprouts needed a bit more cooking, and having to cut up and split the balls was laughable.... More
