The flounder was exquisite as was the layered crab appetizer. Had two teenagers with us that loved the place. Great way to end the day. Request inside seating if it is extremely hot out.

I had really looked forward to lunch at ELA's. Unfortunately, the waitress was unfriendly and my salad was terrible. I got the pear and arugula salad with grilled chicken. When the waitress brought the salad, I asked for bread and she said they didn't have any. The grilled chicken tasted like fish and when I asked about it, I learned the chicken was grilled in the same pan as the fish. The arugula had a strange, musty taste. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience. The elevator wasn't working, so my friend who just had back surgery had to navigate the steps which was quite difficult.

Beautiful setting on the bay. Perfect for watching the weekly fireworks. The food was excellent and I particularly enjoyed my peanut butter pie. If I had to say one negative thing it was that the service was a bit too fast.

The seafood was fresh and the steak thick and made to perfection. Dining outside gives a water view of the marina . A little music also makes for an exceptional evening for a special occasion. Totally special. Chris

A horrible dining experience due to two unsupervised children that ran through the restaurant and ended up by the corner window by our table. After they leaned on my friend’s chair, played in her hair and constantly touched her, we told the waiter. His response? I’m sorry. After reporting the same to the manager, his response? I’m sorry. We’re not a kid restaurant. Apologies don’t cut it in the food and beverage business. Not on a 12 mile island in the summer, tourist season. I live here year round. There are far better restaurants to go to and I won’t be back here.
