Another favorite after golf in the am...I have never waited to be seated, always find a place at the bar, great bar staff, friendly and knowledgeable about menu. Shrimp and grits with a single pancake are personal favorite, although the the omelette stuffed with your favorite adds is always a close contender. Full espresso bar adorns the front of the...

I went there for a quick dinner and was blown away by the tasty the blackened catfish, spinach and bacon and Mac and cheese. Service is excellent and comfortable as a single woman traveling on business. Make you feel right at home!

Visited with family in Dallas. The restaurant has lovely homecooked style food which has that fresh taste (not reheated or frozen). A better than average restaurant which caters for non beef eaters as well. The service is great, very friendly and accomodating and willing to give you more information about the dishes on the menu. Would definitely go back if... More

Hotel recommended this for a hearty breakfast. Not too far of a drive from our hotel and found meter parking nearby. Food and service was good, pricey for breakfast but I guess that comes with this more upscale breakfast / lunch location. Good coffee selection, and omelet was a tad overcooked, but tasty.

We went here for a late lunch after visiting the Sixth Floor Museum just down the street. The coffee and food was served quickly, portions were sizable, and everything was delicious. Breakfast is served all day, so be sure to try their loaded hash browns!

My husband and I visited the restaurant on December 30, 2017. We just searched online for restaurants nearby our hotel (Hyatt Regency Dallas) and thought this sounded like something we'd like. Boy were we right! My husband got the chicken fried steak with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Something about the breading on that CFS was just delicious. I got the... More

On a recent trip to Dallas, Ellen's became my go to for breakfast and dinner. The food was outstanding, southern comfort food. The portions were generous and the prices were reasonable. Best of all, the staff at this small homey restaurant went out of their way to make me feel at home. Loved it!
