My boyfriend and I found Elaine's by accident when stopping in Chapel Hill for dinner on a recent cross-country road trip (check out our trip blog, ""A Mini & A Map""), and what a...


I do not understand all the hoopla about this place. The meals were over priced, servings were small, and the worst part was that after waiting forever, the entrees were cold when...

Did not meet my expectations 10/16/2006

I was very disappointed. After making reservations one week prior to our dinner we were served our meal one hour and fifteen minutes after our reservation time. Every table around us was complaining but we waited to pass judgment. One diner even sent her food back and decided not to eat. We did not even attempt desert for fear of not leaving for another hour. My food was cold by the time I got it and my wifes fish was way overcooked. For the price I expect much better service and food. more

Very little space but great food! 9/2/2005

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Elaine’s is how small the eatery is. Now don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy eating here, there is just not much extra room. Located on Franklin Street, this eatery is fabulous. The food is delicious and well worth the confinement! I really liked my server and it seemed that the other customers were happy as well! more

A locally grown treat 8/17/2005

Elaine's is a wonderful resteraunt with incredible food matched with incredible service. Our first experience there was on our wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been more pleasant. The food is contemporary southern with multiple options and a chef who with some advanced warning is willing to accomodate special eating needs. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. It is a little small with only two tables by the windows. They are great raised tables in thier own little alcove so it is worth calling ahead for reservations to try and get the window seats. more
