The atmosphere was decent;plain, but clean and neat. Our server was nice, attentive. The food however, did not reflect the "upscale" atmosphere. We had the EGGPLANT ELY for appetizer. Eggplant batter tasteless. I had the FILET LOUISIANE which filet was cooked to order, however it wasn't seasoned at all. Again, tasteless, even with the accompaniments. My husband had the NEW...

This restaurant is tucked away in a quaint corner of specialty shops along Jackson Street. We had the crawfish and shrimp dip served with toast points - it was very good but was a bit on the rich side. Our salads, spinach and house were both very good. Our entrees, Louisianne Filet and Blackfish were both spectacular! Restaurant has a... More

Went to Elys on a Saturday night. Our appetizer was the crab claws and they were amazing. The steaks are overpriced and the wine selection is cheap. If you advertise yourself as a steak place you don't print on your menu excuses for not being able to make a medium well steak. Way overdone! The sparkling wine choice was Freixnet's... More

We’re so happy you enjoyed the crab claws. We are however sorry your steak was overcooked. We would have gladly recooked your steak if it had been mentioned while dining with us. Regarding our sparkling selections, we have other by the glass options, as well as half bottles of Veuve Clicquot Yellow and Moët Imperial further down the list which... More

We wanted to try a restaurant we hadn't in the area. Off of 51 in Ridgeland, I had made reservations a few days before. We took the elevator up to the 2nd floor and while it was a small place, it was very nice and simple. 6 pm was right before the crowd came in. Their drink menu is limited,... More

Thank you for your review. We’re so glad you enjoyed your anniversary with us. We apologize for the confusion over the Boston Cream Pie. We are not allowed to edit the menu on TripAdvisor, so it maintains incorrect information. We do not offer Boston Cream Pie anymore.

My wife and I have been coming here for years. Have been to all other restaurants highly rated in the Jackson area. In our opinion, the food and service in quiet, quaint atmosphere cannot be beat! Cannot recommend Ely's enough!

Ely's is an excellent restaurant for business or couples. Our business dinner could not have been better. The staff was both courteous and respectful. I recommend the tuna or black fish. Wonderful atmosphere.

I celebrated my birthday with a fabulous evening at Ely's. I could not have asked for a better dining experience! The filet with lump crab meat was outstanding. The steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection and the generous portion of the very freshest of lump crab meat was a perfect complement. Service provided by Chris was impeccable. With his... More

This is a great quiet place to have a date night or a great place to take a business client for a dinner. The food is always amazing and the service level is spot on. The hardest time you will have is trying to pick what you are going to have for dinner. I highly recommend the warm spinach salad,... More

I was there for a business dinner and it was simply great. Great service, great food - but at a price. The "bone-in filet" is (according to the waiter at least) their signature dish and it is really great - some 5cm (2inches) thick, and cooked to perfection (with a great taste). Afterwards I tried a bread pudding (together with... More

We were celebrating our anniversary. However, a baby shower was going on at the same time. So much for fine dining. They should have a room designated for parties. Food is good but not worth being next to a showers. Ruined our night. Thanks Ely's.

As we have explained by Facebook and twice over the phone, the entire dining room was booked that night – including large groups of 8 or more in each section. We were aware of your anniversary, but we did not know beforehand that the group which bothered you was going to be a baby shower (most parties of 8 or... More
