We have eaten here twice in the last month hoping to find the food to be better. Disappointed both times as service was slow and the food average. Before they moved to their current location, it seems like it was much better. Maybe a change in staff has been the reason....

My family and I have been staying a few days at the hotel right next to Elmer's -- so we started going there out of convenience because we could walk there, and how glad we are that we did! We're still staying in the hotel, have eaten and Elmer's 3 times now, and plan to go again before we move... More

We visited Elmer's for breakfast because of its convenient location. I was not impressed by the quality of the food and the fact the menu had was so large shows that they don't do one thing really well. Although our server was very nice the restaurant was fairly crowded and dark. As far as chain restaurants go it's not as... More

Elmers is a basic family restaurant that is probably best visited for breakfast. Unfortunately, were there for dinner. The chicken fried steak and the beef dip were average at best.The highlight was the basket of cheese biscuits. Service was friendly, but it was no bargain. Just Ok.

Stopped here for breakfast on the was to Silverwood. Place was packed and we had a bit of a wait for our drink order to be placed but the waitress did let us know twice she would be right with us and apologized and thanked us for our patience. Family of 3 ordered omelet, skillet and pancakes. Food was delicious!... More

Can't resist doing a review of this Elmer's . We ate here 3 times in 3 days, mainly for convenience but we just felt very comfortable there. The staff are so pleasant and give really good service. The food we had was all good, especially the turkey dinner and the Reuben. We share meals and there was plenty each time.... More

Friend had the apple chicken sausage,big links and awesome, next time. $14.00 for all,not cheap. I couldn't afford to eat here all the time. But what I got was really good.

Upon arrival, we had a late night dinner, not realizing it was close to their closing time, but they did not make us feel we had to rush our meal. We had Prime Dip and Chicken Quesadilla very good and no trouble changing some ingredients because of food allergies. The next morning we had breakfast, first customer's to arrive, Jonna... More

Elmer's is just a mile or so from where we live. The majority of our meals here is breakfast and we visit probably once a week in the colder months. We also have a group of 8 that meet here periodically. Everyone claims their favorites; crepes, pancakes, omelets, potato pancakes etc. This morning I had a veggie omelet and hubby... More
