Yummy Peach BBQ Chicken Skewers

A local go to for their Burger nights- I guess they get great reviews & are a local burger legend if you are a burger person. I enjoyed their chicken skewers and crab cakes with Jamaican jerk sauce. It seems a very retro 70's barn style decor /restaurant. The booth seat I had was short (ended... read more

The day after Christmas was too sunny and warm to stay inside, so we climbed Mt. Major and worked up an appetite. We stopped for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised to sit near the gas fireplace and have a delicious lunch. We each had a crock of awesome French onion soup, bubbling with melted Swiss cheese. The stock... More

Monday nights this place puts on an awesome burger. We careful with the ad-onsbut, keep it simple or your five dollar burger could end up costing eight. Don't expect did service because they get so busy it's impossible for them to be attentive.

This place is rustic and cozy. We ordered the ribeye steak special, asked for a substitution of pasta for rice, and asked to share the entree as we weren't super hungry. Our server Michelle could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The dish was cooked to perfection. Thanks to the chefs Casey and Dave. Highly recommend this place.

This is one of our favorites! The food is consistent and very good. We love the comfy atmosphere after a day outdoors especially. The menu is varied, the staff very friendly, and seating options are varied as well.

I love coming to the Ellacoya Barn for $5.00 hamburgs... they are the freshest tasting burgers around. Their french fries are great.

On 10/16/17 we hosted a rehearsal dinner in the private room at Ellacoya. The food, service and atmosphere were exceptional. It is quite a task to serve a party of 35 with an open menu and open bar all at once and have all the food hot and served in a prompt manner. They did a flawless job! Kudos to... More

Uncomfortable seating detracts from the overall experience of the restaurant. Recently, a new section was added with very uncomfortable, hard seats. The older section of the restaurant has very old rickety chairs. I have had to change chairs several times. It's too bad, because the food is very good as is the service. I would rather eat in a more... More

We were visiting friends, and they suggested we come to Ellacoya - what a quaint and interesting restaurant! We called ahead, since they do not take reservations, and only had to wait about 10 minutes. Restaurant was busier than we thought it would be; but, it was a Saturday night. We were seated on the second floor next to a... More
