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

We went here for a business dinner and I must say it is a first class restaurant. The atmosphere is upscale and the service was excellent. We ordered from a limited menu; but everything from the appetizers to the dessert was very good. I personally had a NY Strip that was on par with those served in fine steakhouses. It... More

Our first visit to Elys but definitely will not be the last. The food was amazing. The wine list is very good as well. Great value for price. Very upscale place, decor and ambiance well balanced. Would recommend reservations. The Pineapple Ely cocktail is a must. Sadly we had too much food and had no room for dessert. That will... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed date night at this restaurant. While it is located on the second floor of a shopping center, it was way more than I expected! Everyone was very nice and helpful! Our waitress, (I hate I don't remember her name), was so sweet and very attentive! We had BBQ shrimp and grits for starters and... More

Located on the second floor of a small shopping center in Ridgeland, Ely's is a solid member of the half a dozen really good places to get a steak in the Jackson metro area. Steaks are all really good, the salads and sides are everything you could want, and the service is top notch. The layout and ambience of the... More

I had not been here in at least 5 years because there are many other great steak places closer to me. I was 100% satisfied with everything. The strip was fantastic. I will be back.

First off let me say the our steaks were delicious! However, that being said, my first time experience at Ely's was very disappointing! It was my birthday and my husband and I had heard good things about Ely's and we were excited to have the opportunity to eat there. I don't know about you but when I enter a restaurant,... More

We’re so glad you enjoyed your food! We’re sorry to hear that you were not happy with your server. As a general rule we urge our staff to serve from the background, allowing guests the opportunity to focus on their own meal and conversation (rather than interrupting them with chatty dialogue). If you enjoyed your meal we do hope you’ll... More
