    The good is great. Everything from the catfish to the lamb was cooked perfectly. Only downside is they were out of several entrees when we got there at 5:30. Seemed odd for early on a Wednesday night to already be out of certain main entrees

    We brought out of town friends to have lunch and they were so impressed with the food and the decor. Everyone loved the drum special and the gumbo. We also split the crawfish over grit cakes which was absolutely delicious. Our server did a wonderful job, too. Eliza is a jewel!

    I love Eliza's. I'm gluten sensitive and they have a lot of menu items that are gluten free. It's the only place I can eat fried seafood. It is a small quiet place with a great staff, great food, great wine choices and great cocktail choices.

    I loved the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. This truly is a place where you can sit down with friends and enjoy a drink or appetizers in a peaceful setting. They have an outdoor seating area. The food was amazing. The shrimp and grits plate were delicious. Not to mention it was gluten free. With celiac this place was on point I did not get cross contaminated or sick. Definitely will be back to try other dishes.

    Eliza's is consistently great. I really appreciate that the noise level is not as high as some restaurants. Our server was professional and not in the least bit overly friendly or overbearing, as can sometimes be the case with servers. We had five different items ordered at our table and everyone raved about what they got.

    This was the first time that I experienced Eliza and it was wonderful! First, it was so nice walking into a restaurant that wasn't playing loud rock music with monitors on every wall. My friend and I could actually have a conversation and hear one another! Secondly, the service and the food was exceptional and I look forward to going again. Thank you.
