Went here with a group of 7. The service was very good and the food was also good. Pretty good selection, calamari and tuna appetizers were good. We all had something different and everyone enjoyed their dinner

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.

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.
