Steakhouse
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.
Owner- Richard Elias Shapley

Steak was over cooked but very tasty. This was my second time to have my steak over cooked but it wasn’t to bad. Still very good food!

I found the Alfredo sauce to be pretty bland; however, my husband's blackened fish was very good. So, possibly I just ordered the wrong entree. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was great as well.

Delicious food, excellent waiter. Disappointed in that website says a dress policy and it’s not enforced. Grown men in shorts and polos, scrubs, etc. It would be nice to know what restaurant really caters to a nice evening and celebration.

And one other thing which you cannot control. A grown older man arriving for dinner with a “girl of the evening.” Pretty obvious when she’s wearing red lingerie as a dress and looks like she might be 18 years old. Geez, when will men step up to the plate and be REAL men!

Other than that, we had a delicious meal!

(You might think I’m crazy but what happened to a man and woman dressing up for an evening at an extremely nice restaurant as Ely’s.)

I will start out by saying that Ely's is my absolute favorite high-end restaurant after my first visit. I'm not the easiest to please when it comes to dining out. The food, service, atmosphere, and overall experience of Ely's is excellent. I generally don't write reviews, but I wanted to make sure that I express my appreciation for such a top-notch establishment.

We brought a group of 4 recent Belhaven graduates to celebrate. Our server Tracy was amazing as always, efficient but not rushing us and so in tune with the young people! The food was excellent from appetizers to the main course; no one had room for dessert!

Ely’s has been our favorite dining spot for years because of the consistently excellent food and drinks, the friendly but professional wait staff, and the ambiance. You can actually hear the conversation at your table!

Delicious food. Most of us had steak, but one had the salmon. Sides were very good as well. Difficult to find the restaurant as signs are small, and hours are limited, but once you are there it is a great experience.

Everything was delicious. We had the artichoke hearts & bisque as an appetizer , excellent choices. The tenderloin tips were very flavorful and tender. Our friend had the vegetable plate which was a lovely assortment of vegetables that she loved. Good drinks, excellent food & wonderful service. We will be back soon!

We frequently dine at Ely's, because we love it. The ambiance is great, and the food is exceptional! At times, it takes a bit longer to get our food, but it doesn't stop us from going. We always take our out-of-town guests there - especially when we want to impress.
