I too am just now finally getting around to reviewing Eli's, though it is one of my favorite places in the area. Located on Main Street in Middletown, CT, Eli's is a pretty unassuming little place, located in an oversized shoebox of a building. The place can get crowded at times, but it's a pretty friendly atmosphere and the patio out back is great inthe summer. Decor is a little bit of anything and everything, lots of bits of historical stuff and knick knacks hanging all over. Also, any available wall space is covered with chalk where people have written their names. The place is split into a bar area and a dining area with tables and booths. The bar area is fairly long and narrow, one of the cool things is they have a few comfortable old barber chairs at one end. The beer selection is always very good to excellent, with something decent on cask almost always and somewhere between 20 and 30 taps all told. Plenty of bottles too, though I've never had anything bottled there. Service is mostly decent, though sometimes a bit slow. Food is very good and eclectic American, with plenty of good appetizers and meals. I'm a big fan of their wings, jalapeno poppers, and fried pickles. Excellent sandwiches, quesadillas, and butgers too. Eli's is pretty affordable as well, an all around great place to drink and grab a bite.

Solid tap list that changes daily. Good food, neat environment. Only thing lacking was stickers. I wanted to buy and they didn't have any left.

Busy and small, but a cool vibe and overall look.

Great selection of craft beer - over 20 taps and a cask option - and very high quality, to boot. Lots of great local and regional options.

I didn't try the food, but the selection looked solid - burgers, nachos, sandwiches, pub food.

Prices on the food were reasonable; beer prices were fair.

I would definitely swing by this place routinely if I lived in the area.
