It’s fried. It’s tasty. Every table gets a refillable hush puppy basket. Expansive salad bar will satisfy. Lunch special is two seafood entrees, cole slaw and fries. Flounder, deviled crab, popcorn shrimp or clam strips are the choices. Prices are very reasonable. Service is agreeable....More

It's been a LONG time since I've enjoyed the steamed oysters as much as I did at Ella's. They were big, juicy and flavorful! My husband ordered seafood lightly fried ... it was perfect! I plan to return with my parents.

Have been coming to Ella's for many years and each visit prices RISE and quality DECLINES. Management appears to be committing suicide because this business will die if it continues along the same path. We won't be back and that is a shame because this...More

Service was good - Lydia was for the most part attentive but did wander off when needed at times. Soft shell crab was overcooked, crab cake sandwich was very good, hush puppies were excellent and the seasonal oysters were average.

calabash style shrimp are small and that's what Ella's serves in the steam pots you get larger shrimp mixed with corn, oysters, clams, king crab legs

You can get small and large shrimp there. Our experience there was less than outstanding. I would look down the road at the docks or across the street for the best seafood.
