Good Clam Chowder & Salads

We just wanted a healthier. lighter choice for dinner and Elmer's fit the bill. The clam chowder was very good. We both had salads and both were fresh and tasty. The option to have a smaller size versus the full dinner portion was nice. The waiter was very good -- perhaps a little eager to... read more

My wife and I were staying at the Guest House Inn next door after driving all day. We did not feel like sitting in a resturant but wanted more than fast food. I ordered soup and sandwiches to-go. The waitress was very helpfull and polite. When I got back to our room I was very pleasantly suprised. The sandwiches were... More

This is a great diner to stop at if you want a complete delicious meal. They make German Pancakes anytime, as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner meals.

Food was average and came to the table on the cool side. This is not like the Elmer's of old. Probably choose another restaurant before going back.

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
