Named after Elias (Ely) Shapley of Greenville, Mississippi, Ely’s was established in 2008 with an emphasis on the highest quality beef, seafood, and spirits, while featuring an extensive wine list and friendly professional service. Located upstairs overlooking the Jackson Street railroad tracks in (Olde Towne) Ridgeland, MS, Ely’s mixes the old with the new, offering time tested dishes in an upscale, warm, contemporary setting unlike your other typical steak and seafood restaurants.

We have been going to Ely’s since it opened and have celebrated all our birthdays, anniversaries and Christmases there. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. Excellent food, outstanding service and an owner who present.

Can’t believe my husband and I had not eaten at this jewel of a restaurant before now. Food, service and ambience were top-notch. Can’t wait to go back.
We ordered the eggplant and crabmeat appetizer and the ribeye and blackfish as entrees. Absolutely delicious.

My family and I have never been disappointed with Ely’s ! The food is always so good and the service is phenomenal!!! My brother-in-law tells me that he has never found another steak that compares to Ely’s, and believe me, he’s tried many other restaurants. Thank you to your staff and wonderful chefs. When we want a wonderful meal and fine dining experience, there is no other choice for our family except Ely’s.

You can't find a better restaurant in the Jackson area. The food is superb, I recommend the eggplant appetizer, the crawfish bisque and the scallops. Wonderful dining experience.

Wonderful experience with another couple the day after Valentine's Day. Our server Tracy was friendly, helpful and attentive. The apps, salads and entrees were top-shelf. My wife and I shared the large filet with crusted blue cheese. The other couple had the filet Louisiane.
We arrived late in the afternoon with only a few other customers but the restaurant was crowded by the time we left but we didn't notice. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I were quite impressed with this amazing
Resturant tonight. The decor is upscale modern, yet the service is warm and impeccable.
I chose the salmon dish and my husband chose the Blackfish. Both were DELISH and the Bread pudding was the perfect ending. Can’t wait to go back!
