Ellacoya is a very good community restaurant located across from the Samoset Resort Condominiums. Their marketing effort with $5 hamburgers once a week has left other restaurants empty on those nights. You still end up spending $70 or so because the drinks are excellent and the atmosphere is convivial for you to stay a while.

As my son said when speaking about our experience at Ellacoya Barn and Grille, "We drew the short straw as far as table server." Had we had different waitress, we may have come away with a better impression. We were seated upstairs in a booth -- nice and quiet and comfortable. When the server came to take our drinks orders,...

This place is so great, the staff remembers you and what you like. Best French Onion Soup ever had, plus check out there $5.00 burger night & there $10.00 pizza night. this place is a gem and I would recommend everyone to try this place. They get 10 stars from me.

My family and I visited on a busy Friday night. We were seated to the left of the bar with other large parties. It was SO LOUD we couldn't even hear our family's conversation. It was rather overwhelming and annoying. It was also really warm so we opened the window near us. That area is not a great place to... More

Love the decor and atmosphere here.....and our upbeat waitress. She left us to talk but was right there when we needed her. It was $5 burger night, which my friend chose. I chose the pulled pork and a side of slaw......all very good. I give extra kudos to the bar.....anyone that can actually make a perfect Vodka Gimlet straight up,... More

Great atmosphere. Tends to be very busy, but I like a lively atmosphere. Best night to go is $5 burger night (Mondays or Tuesdays?)--great deal and excellent burgers.

Cozy atmosphere, can't wait to sit by the fireplace and sip a cocktail during the winter months! Unique drink menu with many different options to choose from. I have not yet tried the food, but a lot of people around us ordered the pizza and raved about it. Portions looked generous. The service was great as well, everyone was friendly... More

I love this restaurant and that's saying a lot as I've been here for over a year having moved from a state that had many really good restaurants. Monday nite is $5 burger nites and well worth it! Every nite is a different special and it's usually very crowded all the time. The barn is so tastefully decorated without looking... More

My family and I stopped here for a late dinner on a Saturday night. We were very impressed by the decor. The restaurant was beautiful and so cool. We really enjoyed the bar area and the view of the fireplace and upstairs area. The food was also really good, and we were sorry to be too full to try some... More
