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

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
