The folk art on the walls inside is lots of fun, and the menu has an interesting variety of dishes, which are generally well prepared. Sitting outside on a cool evening can be pleasant.

Enjoyed dining at Ella's this past weekend for Soul Food dinner. We were looking forward to the fried chicken and it did not disappoint! Side items were many and delicious. Our only complaint was that the live band was just too loud.
