This upstairs upscale restaurant was a nice find. Small bar, great Waite staff, delicious menu. I was not a fan of the buttery cream sauce for the fish, but a lot of the guests loved it. Vegetables prepared well and the potatoes were outstanding. Desserts were worth the calories.

The steaks at Ely's are thick and juicy prime cuts of meat. They also offer excellent appetizers along with fresh salads.

Stopped in Ridgeland over night and was looking for a local resturant. What a great find. My wife chose the Sirloin Tips with onions, peppers and mushrooms it was enough that two people could have split it. I decided on the special Aged New York Strip, superb piece of meat. Meat was cooked as ordered and was seasoned just right.... More

One of the great places to go in Ridgeland . Steaks are always superb . Try the sautéed crab claw app for a real treat. Cozy atmosphere is a real treat.

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

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

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
