Our Story


Elli's Backyard owes it's namesake to owner Patrick Jeffrey's daughter, Ellianna. 


Opened in 2021, the restaurant was born out of the Covid-19 pandemic, as Via 45 left the 45 Broad St. space vacant. Patrick saw an opportunity to open his own business in a dream location - as he always envisioned owning a restaurant in Red Bank.

Patrick worked "aggressively hard" for this, having spent most of his teenage years in the restaurant industry. 

For the young 23-year-old Keansburg resident, this is likely just the beginning.
