A well-rounded menu of “tasty” American fare plus cocktails draws locals to these “neighborhood” taverns, one a Downtown institution open since 1960, and the other a newer Northeast Minneapolis spin-off; a “mellow” vibe prevails amid “warm” , classic decor, and they’re open late for those craving that “midnight snack.”

This place has some truly great chefs. I check out the New rotating weekly specials menu at least once a week (Just google elis east) and when I see a unique dish, go for it. I've had the best duck of my life here. Usually go for the black peppercorn steak or a seafood pasta. I've had one dish that was bad, and the bartender took it off of my bill when he realized I wouldn't eat it. So don't be afraid to be adventurous. You'll be very impressed 99% of the time.

I came with a group for a Sunday brunch. Maybe our experience was not representative of the usual one, but I don't think I'm going back there again. The food was good, but nothing special. The service left a lot to be desired, however. It took the waiter a long time to show up so we could order coffee, and even more for us to order food. The brunch was served almost an hour after we sat. One of my orders was a cinnamon roll, but by the time the food arrived, they had run out of it. They gave us complimentary corn fritters, which was a plus, but they were also not particularly tasty. If you're looking for a weekend brunch, my experience tells me that you should look for other places in this area.

Eli's is a great spot! The food is amazing, the service is on top of their game. We went during a busy time and they were able to accommodate a group of us no problem. I would highly recommend checking out Eli's East if you are in the neighborhood or if you are looking to try out a new spot!
