Nothing spectacular. It was a neighborhood bar. There is a deck out back. Most everyone was out there - crowded but fun. Not a family stop but fine for a quick cold one.

Its hard to spend a lot of money on drinks here. I've tried. Really "healthy" tasting beverages are in the $3.50-$4.50 range and they're made well. Used to have a wider variety of food, but the new Mexican style is of good quality and decent variety. Very casual and local, nice place!

So we saw the article in the Hudson paper, and thought we'd give it a try! Don't expect anything fancy, if anyone is familiar with Ellie's, it's still a bar and has a bar feel. I had the seafood enchiladas and they are, by far, the best seafood enchiladas I have EVER had, (and I've been to Central and South... More

Ok, let me start by stating that Ellie's is a bar and looks like one. I think that all of the beer posters are covering up the holes in the wall. That is really a shame, because the folks who are leasing the kitchen and serving Mexican food are really trying to put out a good product. The food was... More

Thought we would try it out as it promised "authentic" Mexican cuisine. We got to the restaurant before 5 pm planning on a "Happy Hour" drink. Jorge the server (owner) dropped off chips and salsa and didn't return for almost 15 minutes - well after 5 pm. The chips (tasted okay) and the salsa (both were promised to be homemade)... More

Had lunch at Ellie's this past weekend with my sister...for my birthday. Food was wonderful (the guacamole is amazing). I had the steak burrito and my sister had the chicken fajitas. Great service and excellent price!

The bar has a New Mexican restaurant inside. Good food. Drinks are stiff and staff is awesome. We will definitely be back for the food and drinks again. Weekends are pretty busy. It's better to go during the week. They also have a great patio out back

My husband and I stopped in for a beer and an appetizer. When we got our beers, we had wished we hadn't ordered an app. The tap beers were flat, and my glass was full of lipstick. Yuck. The smoke hurt our eyes, and stunk, due to the door to the 'outdoor' patio being propped open. The bartender was friendly,... More

Stopped in for beer after a hot day wandering around an arts show along the river. Both the heat and what-they-call-art-but-what-is-mostly-crafts or nicely-crafted-art-with-finite-creativity made me really need cold beer so we wandered the main drag and stopped into Ellie's just in time to watch a football game on the big screens on the sunny but cool patio. Several friendly locals... More
