I've had breakfast at Elmers 2-3 times a month and each and every time the service was excellent. Food is always served hot and is extremely delicious. I would like to invite anyone to go to Elmers on Appleway. You experience the best breakfast in town.

is still a Denny's. Based on prior reviews I guess I was expecting more. The physical layout is pretty cookie cutter for a Denny's/Perkin's style place. The menu is about the same as well. Nothing particularly inspired. The hostess/waitstaff were adequate (although I was somewhat surprised that a waitress [not mine] decided she must sit down & fill the condiments... More

Food was pretty good. My burger actually had quite a bit of avocado on it!!!! Was never asked to refill my fries(I thought they were never-ending fries, or something like that). The blended strawberry lemonade was super delicious! There were a lot of things to choose from. I had a hard time deciding what to order. Service was good. Restaurant... More

The food is the best, it's a nice clean restaurant, and the service is always good. There is a manager or owner who seems to be there almost always and he is always making sure that you get the best service. I would recommend this place for breakfast for sure ( have only had breakfast there) .

Recently visited Elmers with a large group of people. The service was outstanding! Very cheerfull waitress who managed to keep everything in our large group straight. The shrimp were delicous but the cole slaw was bland, fries were just ok. The biggest disapointment was the advertised Ivars Clam Chowder. Being HUGE fans of Ivars in Seattle for 40 plus years...

We were looking for a quick place to eat instead of fast food. Not bad but could have been better. They did have endless fries and had the option of malt vinegar which makes this a place I would go again.

We came to Elmers for a late breakfast and found it to be quite busy. Expecting it to be crowded and uncomfortable we were delighted to find the service was cheerful, attentive, and food delivered timely. The food was delicious. We plan to come back again during our stay in town.

Like Denny's or IHOP, it has a lot of dishes familiar to most people. The prices were reasonable and there were lots of entries to select from -- breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you're looking for a place to eat that's not expensive, fills you up with basic cooking, and is a chain you might not have back home, give... More
