1. Expertly prepared delicious food. 2. You'll find unusual dishes (Eggs Benedict made with a crab cake and applewood smoked ham) as well as old favorites (Steak and eggs). 3. Excellent service. 4. Elegant yet comfortable ambiance. 5. Reasonable prices for brunch.

Fantastic prime rib. Like it used to taste in the '60s. Very tender, tasty, and perfectly seasoned and cooked. I'm drooling thinking about it...lol. We have a tag-team of two servers who took good care of us, being there when we needed but not pushy. All the staff was friendly and we felt welcome there.

We enjoyed our lunch. The food was good, the service competent, but the restaurant as a whole failed to meet my expectations. I had heard such great things about it over the years that I guess I had formed an unrealistic idea of what the experience would be like...

I love a good steak and was happy with this one too. Very nice setting for dinner parties and special occasions. Staff very attentive and accommodating. Great selection of steaks and sides that can be shared. Drinks excellent. Would recommend a reservation for sure.

4 people for dinner, 3 ordered steaks and I ordered trout. Steaks were excellent and trout was perfect. The sides were wonderful especially the cauliflower with truffles - the best ever. Service was amazing - very attentive - we never had to ask for anything. Loved the atmosphere - not loud. We ordered warm chocolate cookie - perfect. Just enough... More

Bad service! How do you mess up a house salad. Nothing special bagged lettuce mix. Boring. Chowder was decent but it took so long to get it I almost forgot I ordered it. Neighbor table of 4 only two people received their dishes the other two at least 15 min later ?? They were not happy either.

I visited Elway's in early December with family and overall I was thoroughly pleased. I arrived a little early for my reservation, so my table was not quite ready. The host guided us to the bar for a quick drink and she returned to a short while later to let me know our table was ready. The waiters provided superlative... More

We were in town for a conference and staying close to Elways. Decided to try an early dinner there. The service was amazing. The waiter listened very carefully to what we liked and guided us to perfect selections. Suggested a lamb appetizer which was one of the best things we have ever eaten. So great! The rest of the meal... More

My last-minute request for reservation was instantly attended to with grace and friendliness. Comfortable interior, attentive and unobtrusive staff allowing intimate conversation and relaxed atmosphere. No rush to turn the table. Artistically presented food at surprising speed.

We had not been to this Elways for a few years, but went for my birthday. We had earlier reservations (6:30) on a Friday night. Other times when we went we would have to wait for our table past the reservation time, but this time was not the case, so that was nice. We had a nice booth, but next... More
