All 5 of us got something different and all loved our meal! Service was good. Prices good. The place was very crowded by the time we left. It’s very popular with Quinnipiac Students and visitors and I can tell why.

They have great burgers and a wide selection of meals to choose from. Only downside is parking is limited may have to use parking lot across the street.

Eli’s is always dependable for good food and a place where you see local friends. In the bar, you are able to watch TV from their many TV’s or you can enjoy a meal in the more private dining area.
