Anthony Buonfiglio

Always a good experience, the manager Nick knows his beer and always has a stellar tap list, way better than any of the other Eli's restaurants. Definitely stop in and check out the tap list it's worth it and the service is always on point !

David Telesca

Fast service, really good burger!

Nereida M

The food was very good and was very fresh. Wait service friendly, suggestions were made. Resonable prices.

Brittany Wright

Although our service was very nice, the drinks were not that great. I had an orange mule that wasn't very good.

Claudio Scirocco

Broccoli rabe app came out as a soup dish, had about. 1/2" of broth at bottom of dish and very bland

nathan wang

Tasty food, nice selection, prompt and friendly service.

Tisha Aprile

Service was on point. A little pricey on some things. Food was tasty and well worth it.

Gus Rapini

The Crab cakes and crusted Salmon as well as the service was OUTSTANDING! Definitely worth a shot! Will revisit!

Liz Torres

Great lunch menu

Anthony Pompano

The menu here is off the chain good.


Went on a Monday because most other places were closed, sadly a mistake. We were seated immediately which was nice and our waiter greeted us within five minutes, it was downhill from there. Ordered the spinach artichoke app which was tasty but lacking in depth. My beer stated it was a NE style IPA but after seeing and tasting it I realized this wasn't the case. I had to flag my waitress down as she passed by my empty glass to ask for a second beer (yes I still drank the beer). My steak was ordered medium but came out well done and void of any flavor. The check was delivered, the third time our waitress stopped by, and 98 dollars later we were out the door. I'm willing to try again but I'll research my beer on Untapped before selecting and I'll stick to straight bar food.

Elizabeth Mcdowell

Love this place, my friends and I eat there and we just love it and its a fun place to just enjoy one another's company. This is a 5

Karen Bunkoci

Drinks and Nachos..good place to meet, fast service, good service, easy parking. Prices are reasonable.

David Andrade

Great food

Melissa Stasiak

Food was good typical of an Eli's restaurant. There is a huge basketball hoop game in the middle of the bar, very odd placement making access to tables and walking awkward. Bathroom was very poorly maintained.

Frank Riccitelli

Food was good, rotten mint in mojitos, not good...twice!

Myra Woods

I loved this place. We had a fresh delicious salad and veggie burger.


Got served 2 drinks with rotten mint floating inside. Asked for a new one and ended up with the exact same.

Ernest Goodwin

Awesome place to hang out. Great apps and service. Steak egg rolls are off the hook! They give back to the local schools too!

The man of meatballs

Has great food with a huge variety of everything

Robert Roman

Food and drinks are good, staff is good. Parking is good too

John Falkl

Add much as I want to like Eli's, the restaurant makes it hard. I've been there three times and tried to eat at the bar. Service was always very slow and tonight I sat at the bar for 20 minutes without being asked for a drink order. The two times i was served, the food was good but bar staff is not attentive.

Susan Tabak-Proto

Great food, very good service! Never felt rushed.

Kelly Fourtin

The place wasn't busy at all and we were there at 7:30pm. We ordered salads, one with blackened chicken, the other with crab cakes. The svc was as slow as can be. It took about 30+ min to get them.In the meantime she could have brought us bread. Then to get someone to get our check took another 15 min. And what seemed to be the manager walked by our table and area numerous times seeing us just sitting there and finished eating and not once did she stop at our table. We finally got her to get our waitress to get our check. Horrible!! We will not go back there.

Louis Bacchiocchi

I brought 24 guests for a family and friends brunch. Good food, great service, nice atmosphere. Very pleased with our experience here.

Michelle Jacovino

Wouldn't know how it is waited 10min for someone to come over to the table. No one ever did. Waitressed for 5yrs. Great the table when they sit especially if it's not busy! Get it together. Eventually left did not want to give them my service for no service. Saturday January 21.

Jake F

Great staff and great service. No complaints.

Brad May

Good beer selection and good food. Try the pot pie and the giant pretzel.

Marc Roman

Very nice place to eat or just have a beer. I had the Philly cheese steak egg rolls and they were everything I expected. The grilled steak was even better. I will definitely be going back..

Ms Pretty Girl Roberson

On 1/31/18 my husband and I decided to go to Eli’s, which became on of our favorite restaurant after moving to Connecticut and attending a Christmas Party, which was Hosted at Eli’s. Today we went to the Eli’s in Orange. The hostess sat us in the bar area. Once we were seated we began looking over the menu. Fourteen minutes had passed and we were not greeted, since we were seated. The waitess passed us several times and did not acknowledge us. Minutes later a table was seated across from us. The unknown waitress greeted the table and took a drink order. After visiting another table then she finally comes over to take our order. I am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED about what happened today. The manger came out briefly, but tried to blame the hostess. I called Cooperate and I’m waiting to hear back from them. I will also try to make contact with The General Manger Kevin on Friday February 1st when he return. Eli's gets a one star!

angelo epifano

1st time there food was excellent and came out fast. Will go there again.

Michael Taylor

James Jamison

Bartenders very friendly down to earth makes it a great place to hang out

jennifer paturzo

Good service and everything we ordered was delicious.

Paul Gardner

Good spot. I had lunch with their signature chicken dish. I was a little bit spicy and very good...much like chicken scarpiello. The other people in my party enjoyed their lunch very much. We had a very attentive waitress and the prices were very acceptable. Also, the portions were very good consid sering they were lunch portions.

Alex Alapatt

Good food and fast service.

Kyle Bassoli

Good beer and good food. Nice place to watch the game.


Traveling. Stopped in late. Ordered off late night menu, eggrolls and a chicken burger? Great food, good service from the bartender out to our table?, good drinks. No complaints!

Elana Koverman

Good food, very friendly service

John Murray

Excellent friendly service great food will definitely be back.

Cosmic Charlie

Came in on Sunday night aroud 8pm. Resturant was at less then 1/2 the capacity. I waited 10 minutes just to be acknowledged. Workers looked me and didn't even give me a "hello" or "be with you in a moment". Finally after being seated I waited another 10 minutes for a menu when the waitress came back to me with a menu I got up and left. First time and the last time I'll ever go here. Poor teamwork, poor service, and poor manegment

Lawrence Ksiez

Great food and drinks. Can host large groups too.

Lauren Weatherspoon

No Pizza

Donelle Scinto-Toner

Service painfully slow. Don't go there if you are really hungry! Some items were completely forgotten to be delivered to the table! C'mon! Understaffed. Sunday lunch. So much better during a weekday.


The staff were friendly and the food is good

Rich Kollanda

1st time at this Restaurant. Met a group of friends had a great time in a good meal.. Service staff was helpful kind and courteous...

Brian Camacho

Great service!!! Great food!! Morgan is always a great waitress!!

Stacey Grimaldi

Nice variety on menu. Nice portion sizes, plenty of food. Chile Line Shrimp salad was very good - I appreciated the waitress asking if we wanted dressing on the side. Braised short rib special was excellent. A little pricy overall, especially for add-ons, but who the food was very good. Don't go if you hate a lot of TVs playing!

John Correia

Good service and the food is always good.

robert moran

Food,. Service, price very good!

Ivy Ramos

Very nice restaurant clean and the waiter was very friendly I will go again

Kitty Pregent

A VERY nice lunch! We happened upon Eli's purely by accident, we were just trying to feed a hungry 6 year old. The hamburgers were expertly cooked, the portion sizes were generous and everything was brought to our table by Jess, our always smiling waitress! We will be sure to return next trip to Orange!

Sharon Tudino

Great service, especially Tom at the bar! Always good food!

Cindy Cable

We just had late night desserts and coffee drinks the desserts we're very good. Coffee was cold and the service was mediocre.

Eli's Restaurant in Orange is amazing. I have visited this restaurant twice and both times I have had fabulous experiences. There are not many places that are able to accommodate several food allegories (I have many: dairy, soy, whey, egg, artificial sweeteners), so finding a restaurant that can/willing to accommodate is a rare find. On my first visit which was for Sunday brunch; our server Eric did not seem annoyed or frustrated by my allergy situation and took the time with me to go through the menu to find meals I could have or that the kitchen could modify for me. Eric made me feel comfortable and I did not feel rushed to decide. I picked a breakfast meal which was wonderful and very reasonably priced ($10). Once we received our meals, Eric checked on us at reasonable intervals (not too often nor did we need to look for him if we needed something). He was very attentive to our table while serving other tables as well. My second visit was for lunch. We were fortunate to have Eric as a server again and he was absolutely incredible yet again (even remembering me from my first visit and that I have several allergies to work around). This time I decided to have a steak with homemade fries and fresh broccoli. The steak was huge and the fries were amazing, even the broccoli was cook nicely (not too hard and not too soft). There was so much food that I only could eat half, so I took the other half home and was able to have a second meal. I highly recommend Eli's, great décor comfortable and inviting, wonderful food, and outstanding service! I plan to revisit Eli's frequently.

Geo B

My favorite of the three Eli's I've visited. Always had good food and service.

Susan Santora

Nice place. Good food. Pleasant staff.

Cheryl Celone

Good food and service.

Robert R.

Food is great, loud though on a Friday evening after work. Bar is hopping with people.. otherwise love eating here

mika french

Love the place. Staff and food is great.

William Fahy

Food is always good and service is great. Prices are comparable to other restaurants of this type.

Sandra Livramento

Great food and great service. My office used for catering and they did a nice spread. Very surprised that the salmon wasn't fishy and tasted amazing (I am not a salmon lover either). Restaurant dining room can accommodate large and small groups. Prices are very reasonable.

Jeffrey Sumner

Good food and services

DJ Electrons


Marcos Crocetti

I love this place! Good prices!

John Karavas

Always a good choice

Angmccarty M

Great food, great servers!

Raven Simone

It is over a month since I have reached out to a member of management about an issue I had to finally receive a call back from the “general manger” 2 weeks after the situation to be told I would receive a gift card for my “inconvenience” still have yet to see a “gift card” in the mail . Now I see why their employees treat their customers the way they do if “management” doesn’t care why should they ..

Victoria Kallsen

Food and drinks are good but it's a little pricey for the quality. One of the better Milford/Orange options though.

Elizabeth Beauchamp

Horrible service. Took forever to get our first round of beers

M Sanchez

They are better than Eli's on the hill. Friendlier, Cleaner....

Jennifer Hofmeister

Always good food, nice atmosphere

Danya D.

Was so good.

Victor Figueroa

Good service and delicious

Matthew Marchitto

I have been to many of the Eli’s and had great experiences, the is good the service is always good, and the decor is nice. This was my first time in orange and it was extremely hot in dining room to the point I left and went to a competitor. The bar area was crowded with a ver loud party crowd which resonated into the dining room. This is not typical for an Eli’s.

Nicole Buturla

We had a great experience for lunch at Eli's in Orange. The waitress was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious! The sweet potato fries were crispy and the best we've had anywhere!

Wendy Ferraro

Love this Place.. The staff is awesome!! Food is SUPER DELISH!!! Make sure to install their APP so you can earn points for free stuff!!!

Benjamin Cherry

Eli's is a group/chain, but the staff at each restaurant make you feel like you're at home, the farthest possible thing from the indifference of a large franchise or chain restaurant. The food is good and the beer is excellent. They partner with local breweries to bring new and interesting beers to constantly keep a subset of the taps rotating. The management and bar tenders are frequently throwing events to fundraise for good causes, decorating the restaurant and doing other creative things to keep the experience there fun and fresh. The bar area has more than 20 TVs with every live sporting event you could want. If you want a quieter, sit down meal the restaurant side is great. The bathrooms are very clean, and the women's room has a changing table

Ryan McGuire

The bottles they served us water in were pretty dirty and I felt sick the next day. Used to be better but seems to have gone a bit downhill. They also totally forgot my burger so it came out 15 minutes after everyone else and then it was overcooked.

David Riccio

Great place to watch the games.

Carolynn Strelecki

Why pay $16 for steakumms? My sandwich literally had 3 mushrooms (for $1 upcharge) and less meat than you get from subway. What a waste of time! My daughter ordered fish & chips ($18) and was given 2 small pieces of fish -no way is that worth it! Also, they refilled my nephew's drink 3 times while ignoring my husband each time. This is the first and last time we'll ever come here.

Will West

Very friendly staff and the food is even better

Loretta Smith

My husband and I tried the Eli's in Orange few months ago and really liked it. The staff, especially Morgan who's served us several times, are friendly and check periodically to see how we're doing. My husband ordered the chicken pot pie twice and couldn't believe how huge it was and how exceptionally tasty. I've had several different dishes and my favorites are the chicken wings (succulent) and Ceasar's salad (Eli's serves the romaine heart leaves, not the limpy outer ones like other restaurants). We had a nice chat with the manager, Kevin. He's a hard worker & is making the restaurant a big success in Orange. I have recommended it to friends.

Jason Tucker

Great food. Great atmosphere. It's a must try.

Dwight Gooden

I ordered Chicken Florentine with spinach and with lemon and it was disgusting. The food was drenched with lemon and overly salty. It was my first time there and I don't think I'll be able to eat there again after this experience.

King Raz

Great food I enjoyed when I went here was clean with a friendly staff good food and a nice setting. It was also surprisingly quiet considering its location.

John Cawley

Excellent service from Julia (wait staff) and bartender . Owner, Steve, checked our table and spent time with us to make sure all was well. Everyone (7 of us) very happy with the food. A great experience all around.

Davida Wilson

Wow love the service n food friendly people

Anna Bernier

Food was good, prices good and service was great. Must try the steak egg rolls.

Michael Skelton

Good food & service

Anthony Dini

Probably the second-best Eli's location, but its close to home so its our go-to place to eat bar food and watch sports. Tons of TV's and they will accommodate anything you want to watch. For big games they sometimes play audio. The staff here is fantastic, they remember their customers, are very friendly, and attentive. During the week Eli's Orange is perfect for a quick dinner and a beer, or a nice lunch, but watch out on the weekends as it can get pretty packed. The Friday Happy Hour crowd is always fun to witness. Semi-awkward groups of work friends that are just feeling out their social side. Hey, at least Eli's brought them together! Saturday nights, it's the spot for the middle-aged, suburbanite married couples. Rocking out and partying until about 10pm. However, there's always a spot at the bar in the restaurant. Food is decent. Cant go wrong with an enormous plate of nachos, and people seem to like the buffalo egg rolls.

Brenda Warner

Food was good, after 2nd selection.

Joshua Bradley

Great food, good deal on drinks during the games.

Eric Passin

Really good food and service

Leena Nicole

Nice atmosphere and good food

Jack Holodak

Try the avacado salad with salmon, excellent.
