Had a delicious dinner at Eli's! I went with a large group, and received excellent service from the staff at Eli's. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait, it is always busy at Eli's. Try the She Crab soup if it is available the day you visit, it is delicious!

Food, service and overall experience was the best we had all week in Charleston. The fish I had was probably the best I've ever tasted. Wife and I agree, best eating experience in Charleston.

Visited this restaurant while in Charleston for the Food and Wine Festival. We had reservations and did not have to wait for our table. Food was excellent!! Wait staff was polite and efficient as well as offering a laugh or two.

My wife and I stopped at Eli's cafe for dinner just after arriving in Charlestown. It seemed promising: located in the historic district, indoor and outdoor dining options, and a menu with local cusine. The experience exceeded expectations. Our server, Tony, guided us toward the house specialties, and we were well advised. The grilled shrimp and grits, and the fried... More

The food, atmosphere, service and dining experience was excellent. The service from maître d' Raymond and the food prepared by Chef Billy made our night unforgettable. Now I know why this establishment has won so many awards. Thank you for welcoming us to your table and making us feel at home.

Excellent food. Our salmon with citrus and fennel was seared and moist. Brett, our waiter, knowledgeable of the menu and Charleston history. We were new to the area and he shared a lot of local lore which we enjoyed. Jason, the manager, was attentive and kind. The chef's presentations were photo worthy.

Thank Lawrence S
