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

Enjoyed the meal and the service was certainly pleasant. Didn't find the food to be as good as the prices they charge. Would not likely return as there are other options nearby that would likely be a better value.

Food and service are excellent. Price is what would be expected for the quality. Steaks are always very good. There is a wide selection of wines and cocktails. Draft beers would be a good addition.

I had a fantastic dinner here Oct. 28. The setting was inviting and the service was spot on. The crab claw appetizer was delicious and my stuffed flounder was the best I've ever had--and a huge portion. Coupled with a nice New Zealand wine, it was a great meal.

The shrimp and crawfish dip is by far the best appetizer I have ever had and I have visited many 5 star restaurants all over the world. The scallops were delicious, just a little pricey. I always try the filet on my first visit and though it was good and cooked medium rare like I prefer, it was a bit... More
