We celebrate the

GREAT AMERICAN BRUNCH

all day every day.  

BRUNCH IS RIGHT, DAY OR NIGHT

At Ellen's, brunch is all we do. We know that brunch is no longer just for the weekend. It's everyone's favorite meal, so why not celebrate it every day? In fact, any time of day is a good time for brunch, so we serve it day and night.

We started Ellen's in 2012 with one simple idea: build a restaurant that we would want to go to. 

 

That means traditional, made-from-scratch Southern recipes, using only the freshest meats and vegetables, and giving service with true Southern hospitality. That also means serving brunch all the time.

Because remember, no matter what time it is where you are, IT'S BRUNCH O'CLOCK SOMEWHERE!

The most frequent question we are asked is WHO IS THIS ELLEN PERSON?

 

Ellen is the mother of Joe Groves, one of our co-founders, and the restaurant was named in her honor.

 

While Ellen isn't personally involved in the business, she is a very important part of our family and she lives up to her role as our namesake inspiration.

 

When you are at Ellen's house, everyone is family.  Quite simply, there are no strangers. Here at the restaurant, we try every day to live up to her legendary hospitality and welcoming spirit.

L-R:  Co-founder Joe Groves, Ellen Groves Corlee (Joe's mom), and Co-founder Chef Russell Mertz

At Ellen's, we usually call it as we see it, so brace yourself.
