Great, inexpensive dining with slow service

An all around menu makes Eli's a great place for any meal. They offer most any dining type you desire and all of it is good. Great burgers, delicious shrimp and lake perch, tender rib eye steak, pastas and salads...all are excellent choices. Service can be slow at times. This is not a... read more

We love this place! We go for Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast at least once a month. Try the peanut butter chip pancakes! My son and hubby love the omelettes and skillets. Service is always great too!

I stopped in today for my fourth and very last visit. The first three visits were really not good but I thought I would be okay going for breakfast. I was quickly reminded why I don't like this place. First off every time I visit I think of the tv show Restaurant Impossible and think what a great candidate this... More

This was my third visit to this horrific restaurant. Unfortunately I had to return for a family gathering. Without surprise, this place disappointed again. Pathetically slow service with the most rude and arrogant waitress staff. The food is mediocre at best. There are way too many other restaurants in the area with better food, better prices, and way better staff!

I am not a huge pancake person, but theirs make me want to eat them. Very good breakfast and a good cost. My kids love eating there. Lunch and dinner type meals are in line with any other family restaurant in the area( Round the Clock, Twelve islands etc..) 150 things to choose from and decent. Surprisingly, they have a... More

This restaurant has been around several years now and consistently puts out good food at a little above average prices. I have probably eaten here a dozen times since it opened and have never experienced the "rude" service indicated by others. I've had all 3 meals with no complaints, but also nothing really stands out as fantastic. Typical "Greek" family... More

Although the pricing is a little high the food and service make it worthwhile. Love the hobo skillet and the Belgian waffles

We have given this place a few try's. Every time we go the hostess is just plain rude and acts as if it's an inconvenience that people come to eat, what do you know at a "diner". Even over the phone orders are always wrong and I always get a sense of attitude. Food use to be great, but it's... More

This is your typical local family restaurant that has 5 pages of things to choose from - none of them being over the top good and none being too terrible. The thing that stands out most at this particular place is the service. I've visited this restaurant about a half dozen times (not by choice) and each time I leave... More

I love the skillets here and the giant apple pancake! The service sometimes could be better. I've had a couple of inattentive waitresses but for the most part they are good. They do mess up my eggs on my skillet too. I ask for hard and I get runny eggs.
