I have been going there for years but keep praying for a change hoping that it will improve. Unfortunately the food is terrible, loaded with salt and just bad. The cook (ex bartender) was busy playing Powerball rather than cleaning up that filthy kitchen. It is no wonder it has not been closed down by the board of health. The... More

I have to say the food tasted good, the portions were good and our waitress was sweet but that was all eclipsed by the stained falling down ceiling tiles and dark outdated surroundings. Mom had pancakes, perfect poached eggs that were fine but the sausage was so overdone they should have never served it. My son had the "Thanksgiving Dinner"... More

This is a great place to go when you are looking for good food at a reasonable price. My husband had crab cake sandwich and I had steak tidbits. Both came with fries and salad. All was delicious. The French fries are cool too, they are round! They have outside dining in the back, if you enjoy eating outside!

Seems the restaurant has changed hands which is fine needed a change, but we were very disappointed in our food. I ordered skirt steak and it was seemed like they replace it with london broil. Differenlty not skirt. Mashed potatoes were not fresh seemed like they were out of a box of flakes. My husband ordered chicken in a basket... More

Save your time and money and go to any other place in the area. The service was slow, and the Hostess was downright rude.They had a Groupon which is the only explanation for there being a lot of people there. They sent a busboy with our soup so he didn't know who got what, which caused one person to have... More

Elijah Churchill's has been a favorite of mine for over a decade, and has been a regular "go to" for my fiancé and I when we're linking to go out without having to trek too far. They've got great seafood baskets (think: fish & chips, clam strips & chips, shrimp & chips, etc), as well as really great burgers and... More

We always enjoy when we go to EC for dinner. You get that old world tavern feel when there. Live music makes it enjoyable as well. The food is served hot and delicious too! We had the onion soup and ceaser sald, the skirt steak and the Corporal Sherer burger (bavon, cheddar, barbecue sauce). Our waitress Sam was great too.... More

This place has a charming atmosphere but could use some updating. English pub style food. The Flounder~in~a~basket (fish n chips) is fair; the fish was overly greasy and bland, but the French fries were very delicious. The Nathan Hale Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken was also average, with decent chicken but strange tasting dressing and lettuce. The staff were pleasant... More

Stopped here for lunch one Friday afternoon - the waitress was great but she didn't have much to work with. Beer was flat and glass dirty - white wine not bad. Food was basically awful - actually sent the onion soup back - was not edible. Main meal not much better. The waitress tried and did her best - they... More
