Had lunch there a couple of times with clients and have had a bad meal. Today was the Ruben special with sweet potato fries and it was just perfect. Would highly recommend Eli's. Service with a smile is hard to come by but not at Eli's. Everyone had a smile -makes your day.

Came in with a large group of around 35-40. They were able to accommodate a large group with tremendous efficiency. Didn't get the waitresses name but she was exceptional. Very organized, friendly and efficient. The food was also great. Highly recommend.

This restaurant serves everything from up-scale sandwiches to delicious entres. The staff has always been friendly and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good meal at a modest price. There is also a comfortable bar that is separated from the dining room. Noise has never been a problem.

The place is pretty loud, but the service is great and the food is very good. I had some salmon, and enjoyed the experience very much.

This is a great place to relax and eat some good food. It is especially good when there is football game on to sit and eat and socialize with friends.
