Any time we have people in from out of town we try get them up to Eli's. Beers on tap you can't or wouldn't find anywhere else. Interior decor is hilarious! It freaks out my kids a little, they don't exactly known what to think... Yes, we bring the kids, only during the day though. Nighttime adults only, college dive... More

We have been wanting to stop at Eli Cannon's for a long time and we finally got the opportunity recently. It was Sunday afternoon during Thanksgiving weekend and the place was not very crowded, we were able to easily grab two spots at the bar. Thought the beer menu was great -delicious Imperial ales and porters, and could have spent... More

Solid selection of beers on tap, local to the area. IPAs/Sours/Stouts, all were represented well. Food was also good and large portions. For the money, the food was above average. I just wish they had some stickers to purchase, otherwise, would go again just for the beer options.

The one good thing about Eli Cannon's is the backyard (as a space.) When it's overcrowded that detracts, but it is chill. Inside is always slammed, and the bar ensures you'll have elbows in your sides at every turn. The good the extremely average (and the last two visits it's been less than that.) I think we're done going to... More

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.
