Brunch Bargain

My family has had brunch here twice. The price is reasonable, the facility very clean, the staff pleasant, and the quality of the food is good. I suggest getting there at 10;30, just as they open for brunch, because the restaurant fills up quickly. The majority of the brunch is set up opposite... read more

My wife and I had an enjoyable lunch at Elaines. The service was great, and the food was excellent. It's a great full-service restaurant.

American fare with several specialty dishes.. Dino and his friendly staff make dining a pleasant experience. Also, the outside patio is a great place during spring and summer to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the cars roll by...Sunday brunch offers many tempting foods and the price is reasonable

My coworkers and I have rented out the conference room a couple of times, it is very nice and the price is right. We also rented the top area, it was a little louder than i had hoped. We will be back!!

I have dined there a few times and the staff have been nice and the food just OK. I go there only because I felt comfortable there when dining alone. However tonight was an exception. It was Saturday evening and yes they were busy. I was greeted by the manageror owner and asked if they had a table for one... More

The food was good, the atmosphere is great for children & the staff is very cordial & accomodating. The price is very reasonable for what you get. My only negative is that... More

The pros to give here, are the friendly and professional wait staff and the cheesecake. Unfortunately, it's not good from there. Our family ate there today, and the food tasted processed, and some was cold, some hot. There was quite a lag in between refilling the meal choices. The biggest complaint is, for what was received, is the price. $22.50... More

Elaine's is a convenient place for good food for a great value. The service is very friendly and the place has a family feel to it. It is a great place to bring children. The menu is abundant with selections and the food is very good. The house salad is huge, fresh and delicious. This isn't a place for frills,... More

After eight years of living in the area and whizzing by this place at the top of the Berlin Tpke, we finally gave it a try, and I'm glad we did! I don't understand how another reviewer said it's tired and needs a makeover, but I loved the decor. The ceiling is high and airy, and the upstairs dining area... More
