Excellent food/ Drinks. Small and cozy - nice place for a romantic dinner. Friday night is just fish fry - very good but get there early and prepare to wait - is worth it though - includes backed and fried fish along with breasted chicken - all you can eat!

Local citizens had recommended this pub, and we concur. It's a quaint place, with a small footprint. So I recommend arriving early or waiting for another evening. We sat down and Brandy our excellent waitress arrived almost immediately. She took our order and brought side dishes, family style, in just a few minutes. The main meal arrived soon afterwards. We...

First time at this restaurant. Our daughter and husband live in Madison and we are from the Milwaukee area. Watertown and Elias is the perfect place to celebrate all 4 of our March/April birthdays. We arrived early and sat in the warm, cozy bar having a drink and chatting with the bartender and locals. The bar area is quite large... More

Some friends of ours took us here for the first time. The food was excellent and the service was very personable. This is a nice place not big so you probably need a reservation. I would deffinitly recommend.

The historical building makes for a unique environment. The service is personable and attentive. The soup,individual rotating salad bar, bread basket and main course an excellent bargain. The food is always a consistent above average experience. It really doesn't get any better than this. A gem of a find between Milwaukee and Madison.

My Dad was celebrating his 75th Birthday and the Prime Rib at Elias is his favorite. I wanted to pick up the check for my parent's when they were dining at the restaurant and called the hostess and she was outstanding - she checked with the owner/manager and then took down all of my information and told my parents there...
