tough to figure out when they are open

several times I've tried to go and lights out - even on weekends they are closed often. Several delightful meals here

This place was absolutely delicious. So intimate and quaint, seating in this small house was cozy without feeling like you were eating on top of strangers. The seats against the wall were on a bench lined with pillows which looked like it wouldn't be very inviting but proved incredibly comfortable throughout dinner. We didn't have drinks this night but the... More

Delicious home made pasta dish and caesar salad complimented by Frank Valley chardonnay made only better by all of the staff. They had no problem accommodating a solo traveler and making her feel as she was the VIP they were waiting for.

I've written a number of reviews on this beautiful little restaurant. I have never said anything negative about the food or the service. They are both spot on -- every time. My only complaint has been the cost. But I changed my mind tonite as we dined with a group of four, and we all left satisfied both in our... More

We stayed at the nearby Scranton Seahorse Inn and Elizabeth's was highly recommended as THE place to eat in town. It was! Nice wine selection, delicious appetizers, perfectly prepared entrees. My wife loved her swordfish and the short ribs were done to perfection. Don't miss the Apple Crisp for dessert if you like really sweet things. All in all,a perfect... More

Excellent service, relaxed evening with another couple. We sat in front of the window so there was no one behind us...a rather private nook. Our friend had a birthday and they provided him with a candled desert. It is not inexpensive but the food was delicious and the ambience made it a lovely evening.

We decided to try this cafe and were not disappointed. The server and bartender were professional and polite. The food was excellent and we shall return, next time we are in the area.

We visited Elizabeth's Cafe at the advice of the innkeeper at Scranton Seahorse Inn. We were told we wouldn't be disappointed. And we weren't. It was pricey, but worth it. Everything is fresh and abundant. Even the burger was fabulous.

Enjoyed this small restaurant for the first time with 2 other couples and the service was very attentive along with the food being exceptional. Most of us had the beef entrees which were out of this world complimented with amazing fresh veggies and/or starches. The butternut soup starter was delicious and should of been my main entrée along with a... More
