The sauteed crab claws (When in season) are a must .. The steaks are amazing .. Great place for a quiet dinner.

My husband and I had a delicious meet at Ely's on Saturday, and we both agreed our steaks were the best we've had since moving to Jackson 6 years ago.

Always a great experience. The steak is my personal favorite in the area- and there are quite a few good ones. The service is always exceptional. And I don’t even like cheesecake but their salted caramel cheesecake is the perfect ending to a delicious meal.

Hostess was not friendly. Our reservation was at 7:30. We arrived exactly at 7:30, and the hostess said we would have to wait and was not friendly or apologetic about it. We stood and waited for approximately 15 minutes which was ridiculous, in my opinion.

Ely's is one of the best restaurants in the Jackson area. Go for the Eggplant Ely as an appetizer.

Ely's is always our favorite place to go for steak. The food is always great and so is the service. The steaks here are without a doubt the best you'll find in this area.

Excellent food and service. The Cowboy Ribeye never disappoints. The sautéed crab claws were huge and very delicious. I recommend everyone try this place at least once because you won't be disappointed. Support you local establishments.

Ely’s is the finest restaurant in the Jackson area. The food, the service, the staff, all top notch. I have never been disappointed with anything I’ve ever gotten, and Saturday night was no different. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we arrived early anticipating a wonderful evening. The hostess seated us shortly after arrival making accommodations for our early arrival. We ordered drinks and appetizers. Artichoke hearts w dip. I absolutely love this and I’m not a fan of artichokes. My brother n law raves about the steaks saying that is the best steak he has ever tasted anywhere, bar none. Thank you for a great experience! God Bless! Bubba Walker

Steak was delicious. Would not recommend shrimp and crab dip, did hear another waiter recommending crab cakes to his customers, would have wished we had tried those. The rolls were awesome to.

Ely’s is a really nice restaurant. I had the crab bisque which I didn’t think had much taste. I like a creamy bisque with sherry. I ordered the center cut filet that was excellent and cooked perfectly. I had them add lump crabmeat and the Asiago cream sauce and it was good (crabmeat in Bearnaise would have been better). My husband had the strip and seemed to enjoy it. I think my favorites were the warm soft rolls and the peppered grits...the grits were amazing! Spencer, our server, was also excellent. Very attentive but not overly so.

A colleague and I took a customer there and the first thing we started with were their crab claws. We got half fried and half sautéed and both were fantastic. Then we got an order of Crab cakes and the exact comment from our customer, who is from the North east where good seafood is everywhere, said that this was the best crab cake he has eaten. Then we all got different things, steak, black fish and tuna with fries and creamed spinach and everything was excellent. We got great service and this will be a regular spot for us. It was a nice evening.

My favorite restaurant in the Jackson area. I do not live in Jackson anymore but still visit several times a year to see family. When I am in town I always go to Ely's and bring family with me. The food is delicious, the ambience is great and the service is excellent. I have had the same server the last couple of times. I think her name is Julie. She is fantastic.

We had reservations for a birthday dinner. Not our first time here. The hostess led us into a room and seated the four of us at a table for 6. We thought that a little strange but perhaps the empty tables for 4 were being held for parties of 2?? The food was excellent as always! The waitress was great! She did not rush us nor was she elusive. The only reason I could not give 5 stars is what happened as we were waiting for our dessert. The manager had been by a couple of times during dinner to ask how everything was. Wonderful we answered. We ended up ordering two desserts to share and while waiting for those he stopped by our table again. This time he asked if he could move us to a table for four as he had a party of 6 he needed to seat. We we all dumbstruck! It was very uncomfortable and surreal. My husband replied we would be happy to take our desserts to go and leave. The manager said no, no he was sorry but he would really like us to stay and enjoy dessert - one of which we would get free if we would move to another table. At this point it was just kind of hilarious and I started laughing. We decided not to let this ruin our fun night so we gathered up our to-go bags of leftovers, purses, etc and paraded tru the restaurant. We were seated at a table for 4 in another part of the restaurant. We enjoyed dessert and departed laughing about the incident. We will go back but next time ask if they can put somewhere we can remain through out the entire dinner!

We went to Ely’s for my husband’s birthday. We love the ambience here and the service is always wonderful. The food is divine with a great wine and cocktail selection. We even have their steak seasoning and use it at home when we cook steaks. If we had the money we would eat as often as we could, but we absolutely love coming here for special occasions.
