Eloise Nichols has a wonderful happy hour, which includes both cocktails and small plates. I really enjoyed the meatballs and the manhattan. I've enjoyed both brunch and happy hour at Eloise Nichols a number of times and I will continue to come back and bring friends!

The cocktails, food and service were all excellent. I think it’s wonderful that they have a rewards program to encourage customers loyalty. Excited to go back!

Pitiful appetizers, cold coffee and overall worst service I've ever received. We were also almost impaled by an umbrella that was not weighted down and literally lifted out of our table with a strong gust of wind. Not only had it apparently happened earlier that very same day, the staff sat us there completely aware of the liability, and then were completely unapologetic... The restaurant's only saving grace is that its in a super cute space and is well appointed.

My friend and I had an excellent night at Eloise! We had oysters, burrata with apples and brussels sprouts. All the food was delicious. We got the east coast oysters and they were so good, we ordered them twice. Drink wise, they make a mean dirty martini, also best espresso martini I’ve had! This is my second time dining there and both times the wait staff has been super friendly and helpful. I will be going back

I love this restaurant, and have eaten there many times. On this most recent visit, I had invited a friend out to lunch and asked her to pick the spot. She picked Eloise Nichols, because she has also had great meals there, a few with me. Again, we had a fun and delicious experience there. We both had different Cobb salads and shared a lime pie. Delish! Such a pleasant atmosphere in which to visit and dine.

It was my birthday and looking for something casual easy and fun for a family dinner on a Monday. I felt like the food was just ok. Ive been before and thought it was better. It was very sparse idk if because of Covid or Monday.

Nice atmosphere, great drink offerings, good food. It can get loud in there so time your sit down appropriately. On this visit, my friend was billed twice on her credit card (their system went down?? Not sure). Right now they seem short staffed so just relax!

Disappointed

This is our third time getting cold food and undercooked hash browns. The brunch used to include wonderful hash browns, but have been replaced with something more common and undercooked in our last two visits. The biscuits used to be glorious: fluffy and delicious; this last time they were more like those biscuits you get in the supermarket that come in a pop up tube.

I don’t think we’ll be branching here again. A shame as it was one of our favourite brunch places.

We were there for brunch, and we all had the Biscuit Benedict. It's unusual, with a pulled pork base and paprika Hollandaise, and very tasty. The food was good, but the service pretty bad. We were there to visit, so it was OK, but we sat for a very long time before someone came to offer beverages. Even then, he was reluctant to go ahead and take our order, but we'd had plenty of time to choose! The food came out quickly, so no problem there, but we hardly saw the waiter afterwards. Then it was an effort to flag him down for the bill.
Be aware that the restaurant is very noisy if anyone in your party has difficulty hearing.

This was our first time at Eloise Nichol, and it certainly won’t be our last! Everything about it was perfect. We were greeted immediately and warmly, seated at a comfortable half booth table, with the sweetest server, Bernice. She was wonderful, suggesting certain items and explaining that their menu is seasonal, pointing out the items that change and the ones that are favorites which stay.

We started with the fried calamari and shrimp, which was delicious, and I don’t even eat calamari! For dinner I had the rib eye steak with Brussels sprouts and hubby had the shrimp and grits. I have fined at many upscale steak restaurants, and have to say this was better than the steaks I have had at the others. It was tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. Hubby loved his shrimp and grits and said it was very flavorful. We were not planning to have dessert, and decided to give one a try. On Bernice’s suggestion we ordered the apple fritters, which are made to order, served with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream! All I can say is “Wow!” Even the coffee was great.

In addition to the food and service being wonderful, our water glasses were always filled for us, and the atmosphere was relaxed and warm. Enjoy!
