Food is always excellent. This time with the Oktoberfest menu I had the pork schnitzel; it was good but would have been better without the mustard sauce. Looking more for no sauce, or a mushroom gravy or even applesauce on the side.

Broiled grouper and grilled gnocchi entrees were very good. Service was outstanding. A little loud from the golfing crowd, but tolerable. Could use a better wine list, but that's a minor drawback.

We have eaten there three times....this time we had a few issues.
My son’s fish fry dinner was barely lukewarm...had to send the baked potato back, as butter wouldn’t even melt. His fish was the same, but he did not want to complain anymore.
We waited 45 minutes for our dinners to arrive, had a reservation at 7 pm for 6 people. (Baumgartner)
Our second order of drinks did not come, we had to ask our waitress where they were...(? Kirstin)
My husband said his fish fry was also barely warm.
I asked if I would be able to get my fries “crispy”, and was told yes. When they came, Kirstin said “there are your crispy fries”. My fries looked exactly the same as everyone else’s at the table.
So, generally speaking, we were disappointed.

1st timers and whether u live on the island or an hr away, whether you are a member or not, Elldens is most definately a place to go. I baffled that we lived on Grand Island for 16 yrs and havent eaten here until now. Not 1 bad thing to say. Was perfect from the time we parked until the time we pulled out of the parking lot. Service, food, drinks and value all supurb. Will definately return!

Really nice atmosphere for a small group enjoying their conversation over dinner. The dinner salad was very colorful with a nice variety of vegetables. We had the clams over spaghetti which was served with a delicious clam broth. The staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was fun. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience.

Ever since we tried Ellden's back in the Fall of 2017 we have been hooked. It has become our favorite restaurant and a place we recommend to all our friends, we have actually taken some up with us and got our work to hold it's end of the year appreciation dinner there. 2 thumbs up:)

First they catered an event I went to. Then used them for an event held there. Fabulous chef and platings.
Now a place to stop for an always delicious meal and seasonal menus.
Special thanks to Diane B.

Love their friday night fish frys, never have to wait too long. Their seafood and steaks are very good and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Love going there with family as you can have a conversation and can actually hear what is being said. Their servers are excellent and the owners actually come to your tables to ask if everything is good. Drinks are good too!

I chose this restaurant to celebrate my wives birthday because we were told by family that the food was good, and the ambience was also. We are from California (former residents from here) and I wanted to pick a nice restaurant to celebrate her special occasion. Thank you for great food and great service. Harold Killian

We were promptly welcomed and seated at our reservation time. Service was excellent and all 6 of us thought our dinners were delicious, including one child. Loved the ambience of the restaurant and on a warmer day would like to sit outside overlooking the golf course. The restaurant filled up after we arrived so I'd recommend reservations.

Food had very little flavor, steak was over cooked, server did not even ask if it was cooked properly. Sat us in bar area which was quite loud. Would not recommend and will not return.

As usual thep experience was wonderful. Tried walleye for the first time and it was a great choice. Paired with risouto and a vegetable medley, it was delicious. Others had salmon, autumn chicken, and a burger. All were quite satisfied.
