Eli's Restaurant Group, a true "family" of restaurants, was founded over two decades ago by true brothers in spirit with a common vision. We knew our restaurant chain would be based upon the philosophy that upscale American cuisine combined with a warm, friendly, inviting atmosphere and extraordinary service would result in the perfect place for families, friends and sports fans alike to meet and EAT, DRINK AND ENJOY all that Eli's Restaurants have to offer.
Eli's legacy began in 1994 with the opening of our flagship restaurant, Eli's on Whitney, located in the heart of Hamden, Connecticut a stone's throw from Quinnipiac University. Eli's, as the original restaurant is often referred to, was named as a tribute to Hamden's most famous favorite son, Eli Whitney, the prolific inventor of among other things, the Cotton Gin and since the restaurant is located at 2392 Whitney Avenue, it was a perfect mix of a salute to the past while ushering in a new American Cuisine. From the "original" Elis' four more restaurants have been added to our "family":
Eli's Brick Oven Pizza and Market located next door to Eli's on Whitney Avenue in Hamden (which serves equally fabulous Pizza and traditional Italian Dishes)
Eli's Branford which sits atop "the Hill" in Branford, CT
Eli's Tavern on Daniel Street, a true New York-Style Gastro Pub in the chic downtown district of Milford, CT
Eli's Restaurant Group's most recent offering, Eli's Orange which is located on the bustling Boston Post Road in Orange, CT
All Four of Eli's American fair themed restaurants feature the signature Eli's Horseshoe Bar, the perfect place to sit and watch your favorite team on one of the many big-screen TVs, where you will certainly find exactly what you want from the large selection of craft beers, specialty cocktails, and wines. Combining the extensive drink selection with a mouthwatering burger, crisp-fresh salad, or perfectly cooked entr??e guarantees an unparalleled meal. Eli's staff is knowledgeable and inviting making each location the perfect daytime or late night setting for hanging out and having a great time with friends.
