If you find yourself in or near Jackson, MS you HAVE to try Ely's in Ridgeland! Nestled in the second floor of a unique building in what appears to be an area rich with history, I could not have been more pleasantly surprised! The dinner menu is selective with an excellent range of fresh seafood dishes and sinful cuts of beef! Most of the Entree's have sides prepared but they also offer a nice selection of ala carte items as well. The wine selection is terrific for a controlled state, and they make delicious cocktails! Throw in a little Chartreuse behind the bar and it makes for a perfect evening! If you are traveling alone, they have a terrific bar you can dine at and enjoy the company of the kind folks in Mississippi. I simply adored this restaurant and cannot wait to return!

My wife and another couple and I enjoyed a fine meal of both steak and seafood at this quality restaurant. The decor was nice and room enough between the tables as not to be in the other parties conversation. Acceptable wine, beer and other beverage selection. Although I didn't try it, they are famous for their pineapple infused vodka of which several of my friend have enjoyed and highly recommended. The appetizer selection included some fantastic crab cakes. My entree was the stuffed flounder which had a very similar taste to the crab cake stuffing. Others in the party had the filet mignon and said it was excellent as well.

Ely's is a first class restaurant with a touch of service that makes you feel very special. All the food is great, but especially the fillet mignon. You can't go wrong with their desserts either. If you are looking for a quiet romantic evening with great food and service, you cannot go wrong at Ely's.

I visited Richard Shapley's restaurant in Ridgeland with friends and we had a fantastic time. The sides are huge, the steaks are just like you'd want them, exactly at temp. The atmosphere of Ely's is classy and well decorated, there's usually a nice buzz of crowd noise from happy diners eating in there. Richard makes his way around the place most nights, checking on tables and making sure your visit is perfect. Mine was.

The food here was excellent. I had the stuffed flounder, and it was perfect. For the price I would like to see an extra side (like potatoes) added. The desserts were only so-so. It was very expensive, but it is worth it if you are going for a special occasion.
