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

Thank you for your review. We’re so glad you enjoyed your anniversary with us. We apologize for the confusion over the Boston Cream Pie. We are not allowed to edit the menu on TripAdvisor, so it maintains incorrect information. We do not offer Boston Cream Pie anymore. For our most up-to-date menu, please visit our website at elysrestaurant.com. 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

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
