Ella's Maintains Her High Standards

By Patricia B. Mitchell, 2006.

Sometimes when a restaurant is remodeled, as Ella's has been recently, it seems like the cooking goes downhill. Not so at Ella's. The food is as good as ever. (We breathe a sigh of relief.)

Our family started off with the complimentary hushpuppies which are brought to the table as “appetizers.” Fairly soon our main courses appeared. Husband Henry opted for a side order of Ella's outstanding fried shrimp ($4.00), and a side order baked potato ($1.25).

Son David had a small order of fried shrimp, coleslaw, and french fries ($9.95).

Jonathan chose Barbecue Pork, coleslaw, and french fries ($7.95).

Sarah got the deal for “children and seniors” (or whoever) of a smallish serving of fried shrimp and a deviled crab. She also ordered a baked potato and coleslaw ($7.25 total).

I ordered two broiled filets of flounder, a baked potato, and coleslaw ($7.25). Everything was first-rate. In fact, the fish was just about perfect.

The service was fine. Ella's really is a splendid seafood restaurant. Nice glasses of Chardonney for Henry and me made the meal extra-special.
