ELA'S On the Water
We had a wonderful anniversary meal, we chose a price fixed menu and enjoyed a sampler of their specialties!!
Get service and food! We will be back!
Food and service is always good at Ela’s.
We have been here several times, never disappointed. Their tasting menu (available through January 2020) is outstanding. The steak and shrimp main was wonderful, and the ahi tuna appetizer was outstanding.
Scott was great! It was a wonderful times with great friends (party of six) so see you again... thanks!
Excellent! The food, the service, the ambiance and the view of Shelter Cove created a delightful dining experience. My waiter made suggestions which tasted spectacular! Highly recommend
Our party of three enjoyed Sunday brunch. We were seated immediately and served drinks in short time. Our entrees included French toast, crab omelet, and steak Benedict. Everyone was pleased. Service staff was attentive and friendly.
Great food, exceptional service & romantic ambiance! We will return!
Ela's is a very nice restaurant. We have been there several times and always had outstanding meals. The evening we were there was relatively quiet with only a few other tables. Three of us ate off the normal menu and one ate off the Restaurant Week special menu running through the third of February. The Restaurant week menu is Prix Fixe and comes with 5 small courses. The choices are great and food delightful.
Elas brunch menu was perfect for choice selections and prices. Service was excellent , will definitely be back again.
Good brunch with beautiful view
A must to visit if you stay in Hilton Head. We have been there for brunch and went back for dinner. Delicious both times
Newer menu has some great options and is very eclectic. Wait Staff is very attentive, cordial and efficient too. There is live music in the bar area, not noisy at all and after dinner, we like to stop in the bar and have a nightcap in this very lively setting. Even with the newer menu Crab remains the Feature appetizer and entree as far as we are concerned. They are the best of the Island. Such a beautiful view!
Ela's is one of our favorite restaurants on the island. You can't beat it for the views of the harbor, and the food and service is always topnotch.
Really enjoyed spending NYE at Ela's. Amber our server was fantastic and the food was fabulous. They really know how to throw a great Party.
Great New Year’s Eve here!
Great food and service
Great food and service.
Excellent menus, food well prepared, great ambience, and service just great! Definately will return!!
We enjoyed this restaurant. Food was very good and service was okay. It's in a great location and would certainly recommend to others.
The prices seemed high for the value received.
The food was good, not great.
The service was OK, not great.
But I did ask for no extra salt on my scallops and they followed that request.
Great food and atmosphere. Beautiful view of the harbor with Xmas lights. Highly recommend.
Scallop dinner expensive and only had three scallops; Tuna came with different setup than described on the menu (also overcooked)
Good food, service and a nice view of the harbor.
This was our first time to ELA’S and it did not disappoint. Our server, Grant, was great.
We had a very nice dinner over looking shelter cove marina. It was a great sight with the boats decorated for the Christmas / holiday season.
Food and service was exceptional!!! Best meal of the trip!
We visited Ela's for a Sunday brunch. Everything the four of us ordered was delicious; and there were many brunch entrees from which to choose. The service was excellent, as was the timing of the food brought to the table. Of course, there were only about 20 patrons at the restaurant when we were there, but it was early. That being said, in our several trips to Ela's over the past many years, we have never been disappointed.
Outstanding! Food was delicious and service was excellent
What a great dinner. Oysters Rockefeller, Filet Mignon, Whole Flounder. Gorgeous views.
This was our first visit to Ela's. Fabulous food in fairly quiet noise level in a beautiful marina-side setting. There was live music and service was professional and courteous. I would recommend this restaurant. The ambiance is good but I would like to see renovations in decor soon, especially the ceiling which, like so many other restaurants gets neglected. overall very good.
What an incredible meal we enjoyed this evening! The service from Antonio was perfect and the food was next level. My husband said that his flounder was the best fish he’s ever had. My salmon special was delicious. My only regret is that I had delicious fried green tomatoes and caprese salad beforehand—I was too full to eat all of my entre. Even the white wine that Antonio suggested was the best I’ve had! Our first time to Hilton Head Island—will definitely return to ELA’s if we return. Outstanding in every way and not to be missed. For two of us with drinks, starters, main entrees, dessert and coffee was $140. Well worth it and better than many more expensive restaurants we’ve been to.
Has a business trip to the area. And met associates there for dinner. Located in pretty Shelter Cove Marina. Service was professional and personable. We all ordered seafood dishes and everyone in our party raced about their meal. The grouper entree was popular and delish. Liked it so much we stopped for lunch again before we left town. Same excellent service and food.
Thanksgiving dinner menu was great and we had a nice evening listening to the piano player while dining.
Lily was a delightful waitress, never too far away, always polite and helpful. Piano was not too loud and our table was by a window overlooking the marina. Partner’s crab cakes were a tad breast but my traditional Thanksgiving dinner was delicious, warm, and filled the gaps in my partner’s appetite.
Best part of Ela’s is the view. Food was average. For the money, I will choose another location next time. Would return for a cocktail and appetizer only at sunset.
We dined outside on Thanksgiving day - how great is that? The turkey lovers in our group enjoyed their feast and the rest of us enjoyed the diversity of the menu. Everyone enjoyed both an appetizer and a dessert.
Dined here twice over the past week. Awesome food and exceptional service. Special Thanks to our Thanksgiving server David for fabulous and friendly service!
Great drinks at the bar followed by a wonderful dinner. Crab cakes, oysters, lobster and fine wine choices.
