Ellington’s offers exciting, fresh, three-course menus. Price of a full meal is $10.00 including beverages and tips. Reservations are recommended. Menu options for this date include:


Shrimp Bruschetta
Upon a toasted crostini lies a light, fresh mixture of tomatoes, onions, delicate herbs, and seasonal fresh shrimp. All seasoned lightly with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.

Corn and Potato Chowda’
A heart-warming chowda’ flavored with sweet corn, red bliss potatoes, and fresh herbs. This hearty soup is light, yet satisfying. All of the flavors are complemented with a hint of half and half.


New England Clambake
A simple combination of littleneck clams meld perfectly with sweet corn (on the cob), earthy red bliss potatoes, and a vegetable broth. Served with a piece of crusty bread and that is a meal!

Boston Baked Beans
This dish is vegetarian friendly! Our beans are flavored with molasses, brown sugar, dry mustard, and onion. Served with a faux sausage crumble for some heartiness, as well as a nice warm piece of buttery cornbread for good measure.


Indian Pudding with Maple Whipped Topping
This hearty cornmeal pudding is comprised of molasses, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. A top the pudding lays a fresh maple flavored whipped topping.

Blueberry-Blackberry Shortcake
A shortcake round is the vehicle for a mixture of slowly cooked blueberries, blackberries, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and a hint of sugar. Then finished off with our fresh whipped topping.

Cheddar Popovers
A simple bread studded with sharp cheddar cheese, baked in the shape of muffins. Served warm with butter.
