    We both had the Ribeye and I was happy with the size of the steak. My date had hers with shrimp that she said were excellent and looked that way from my seat (she did not share...) The ribeyes were a perfect medium rare with a nice crusty exterior but the seasoning was very heavy - too much salt. The vegetables were excellent. Cooked but still crunchy. The garlic mashies were smooth and creamy but could have used more garlic. For desert we went with a serving of chocolate and a serving of vanilla ice cream. Generous portions and both ice creams had great mouthfeel with both of us preferring the chocolate over the vanilla which I thought was a little too mild in flavor. Parking was tough for our 6:45 reservation and we ended up parking on the street to the west of the restaurant.

    Was a fun place to go with friends. The server was great, but she seemed very very busy and helped when she could. It was dark and the TVs were massive for sports lovers. Deserts were GIANT!

    The garden area is awesome. Fairly quiet and spacious. Service was attentive but not pushy. The food was great, as always. Our favorite for dining and takeout. The Bird sandwich is huge and great for leftovers. Burgers are cooked just right. Great beer selection, as well. Parking can be and most often is a problem but so worth the hassle.

    What a great combination! Excellent Food with Sports! Most Sports Bars have terrible food. Eldo has a great vibe! Service is top notch! Menu has an abundance of homemade dishes to die for. Our first visit, we will be coming back for sure! A Great Restaurant with a Sports flair! Awesome!

    Food was great , decide was good, But the place had no air circulation in the restaurant area. We were sitting there sweating. We asked to be relocated outside but they stated they had reservations filled already . We finished our meal and left.

    We have been multiple times at the Eldo and it never ceases to amaze. Both Service and Food are outstandIng and neither of us ever came across a dish that we didn’t care for. Always fantastic quality and seasoned to perfection. Coming to The Eldo feels almost like “coming” home.

    I continuously recommend the Eldo for the quality of every menu item. I love the feeling of a community restaurant and bar when I go to The Eldo. The service staff, including the assistants are well trained, gracious and efficient. The menu selections provide a variety of selections such as the Bacon Wrapped Dates, Pork Chop, Salmon and the fabulous, fabulous steak are great! Thank you.

    Very loud noise level, especially inside. Quieter in the outside patio. Nice crowd who appeared to enjoying themselves, but not rowdy. Food was very good with a lot of selections with some South African dishes that I will look into on my next visit. Service could not have been better - friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. The hostesses were very pleasant to deal with and handled the large number of customers very efficiently. You leave feeling that you had a good night out.

    We always enjoy The Eldo. The garden area is especially nice and the noise level is a lot lower than elsewhere. One criticism, however. We made a reservation for 6:00 in the garden area on a Saturday night, early enough to ensure a good table for a group of six. We were seated at one of two available tables of the appropriate size. However, after about 20 minutes or so, our table was severely affected by the setting sun, whereas the other table which was somewhat closer to the fireplace was in shade the whole time. We could have easily been seated at the shady table, but we didn’t know to ask because we didn’t know what we were in for.

    Service was great as per usual. All the food and beverages were good and served in a timely manner. Only exception was the mushroom sauce for my steak and the gravy for the mash. Both were rather salty. I informed the server so she could let the kitchen know as this isn’t the norm for them.

    I am sorry to report I had to send my steak back to get the pink out. It was very noisy. My vegetables were under cooked. My salad was not that great. My beer was great. Our server was great and empathetic. Would recommend for a burger and a beer.

    This place is always a home run. Great food and upbeat engaged friendly service. I sure wish more restaurants were as well run. Some restauranteurs just know how to do and these guys sure do. Trust me and try the ribeye. Totally delicious and half the price of most steak houses for same quality. Thank you Eldo mgt and staff for always delivering. It’s so nice to have a place to always know will be brilliant.
