Just Great

We just had a wonderful meal at Ely's, to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. The food, service, and atmosphere were perfect. You cannot beat Ely's for a great meal.

On our way South to get away from the cold North we stayed in Ridgeland MS for a few days. Ely's was not only listed as one of the best, the moment we walked in the door we knew it would be a special evening. The service and food was above expectations to the point of wondering if it was... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Starkville for a football game. We had driven all day from Houston and looked on Trip Advisor for a nice restaurant with good ratings. We were not disappointed! Even though we arrived in our opposing team's football attire we were treated like rockstars. We were warmly greeted by everyone -... More

This is, by far, my favorite upscale restaurant in the Jackson area. My husband and I ate here for the first time last November, celebrating an anniversary. He always gets a steak, with scallops (which are cooked to perfection), and I always get the redfish topped with lump crab meat. The portions are very generous. These entrees come with choice...

My husband chose Ely's for his birthday dinner. He'd heard several of his co-workers talking about it and decided to try it. We made reservations for 5pm but probably could have gotten a table without a problem as there weren't many other guests there. Our server was Tracy - she was awesome from "hello" to "goodbye". Please ask for her... More

The bar area is very cozy and the drinks spot on! The food was amazing. Fresh, tender steaks with lump carb (not imitation crab either!) was to die for. The fish fresh and flaky, and the wine excellent. My new favorite place in the Jackson area. Will definitely return many times. All the great food was served by top notch... More

We usually don't go to many upscale restaurants. But, on our anniversary, Ely's was our choice. We were not disappointed in anything that passed our lips: drinks( while waiting in the bar), an appetizer of scallops, then crab cakes, fish, & salad, all with wine and water. The desserts others had looked delicious, but we were just too full for... More

I arranged for 4 couples to visit Ely's tonight. Nice atmosphere, but mediocre food. Several of our choices, bisque, broccoli, kibby, and even steak were lukewarm at best. There was not an outstanding meal in the group. Steak portions seemed smaller than usual. The service was good, a bit slow,but suitable for fine dining. This restaurant has received a lot... More

Was driving by and decided to try this restaurant. The service was great (server 95) and the food was excellent. My wife had the fish and it was "absolutely delicious - right amount of flavors." The waiter picked out a great wine to match the meal. I had the 6oz. tenderloin cut and fries. The steak was PERFECT, and the... More

A friend wanted to celebrate his 5th year marriage anniversary here so we all gathered and it was great! The appetizers, entrees and drinks were all good. The price is comparable to a Ruth Chris, but you a better value for your money. Plus it's local, so you're getting that Mississippi quality. I'd dine here for any special occasion or... More
