“Well Worth the trip to Eat and relax !”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

After a hard day of driving and yard work, our daughter took us to this pleasant restaurant called Eli's. It is so warm and beautifully laid out that we did not care for the 15 minute wait to eat in the "lounge area" Plenty of beers on tap and a bar that had 2 workings sides, this was a place to be that night among the locals. Staff was extremely friendly and the food was out of this world.We starterd with egg rolls (6) 2 each of 3 varities ranging from buffalo style to chipole filled with a cheesey drizzle.YUM YUM. Our sandwiches came and they were 100% angus beef made with all the fixins.My melted gouda took the cake for the best tasting amongst the 4 of us! Except for the noise level, this is truly a very great place to kick back and relax with some great food and great staff. No rushing thru the meal either! * * * *

“Consistently great”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Eli's is the place to go for great appetizers, sumptuous meals and decadent desserts. I have been going here since the place opened and they never disappoint! The Friday happy hour is a great place to meet friends, colleagues or family, but get there early for a seat, as it is very popular and offers a wonderful array of delicious food. The bar offers great wine and beers, as well as extensive array of liquors at reasonable prices. A great gathering place overall.

“Hamden hot spot for locals”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Beautiful wooden bar with 3/4 seating stretches the length of this long time Hamden favorite. It's bordered by tables for four. The atmosphere is comfortable but classy. The food is good, but a bit pricey. Best time to go is for Happy Hour when the appetizer buffet is free and lots of people there to socialize.

“Good food, not spectacular”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We have visited several times, our young adult kids love this restaurant, but we find it ok. Meat and potatoes bent. We did attend a private party there which was well done.
