great french fries

My husband had been to the bistro a few years ago and has been wanting to take me. We were passing through town so decided to stop for a late lunch. The sandwiches were good but the french fries were great; some of the best ever. The service was good, too. Usually I give any french fries to my... read more

First time visit but wont be my last. The place has a nice atmosphere and on a Sunday evening, it was pretty quiet which was nice. We had a great veggie minestrone soup and great French onion soup with very fresh, tasty salads. The service was a little rude, not sure why because it was not very busy. Maybe next... More

Being hungry in late afternoon in Three Oaks is akin to being between the proverbial rock and a hard place. Thus we felt somewhat relieved when we saw the lighted "OPEN" sign in the window of the Elm Street Bistro. So, we decided to give it a try. Upon entering, we found the place looking like a run of the... More

I had fish and chips which were absolutely atrocious. So overbreaded it was ridiculous and when I removed a portion of the breading....tasteless fish. My wife's turkey burger was nearly inedible. And the wine...yuk! Do not go here.

If you are in town... be sure to stop in and try their Pot Roast with real mashed Potatoes, and fresh veggies. Also a favorite is the Chicken Pot Pie, It is made fresh daily in house, it is served with a wonderful (larger than average) house salad and house balsamic dressing. This is a local gem, the staff is... More

This is the restaurant where we usually have dinner following a movie at The Vickers Theatre. The restaurant is small and intimate. It can be very noisy if it's packed - which it can be on a Saturday night in summer. The food is yummy and interesting. We've enjoyed all the fish dishes on previous visits. This time we tried...

With a wider variety than some other restaurants in town, the Elm Street Bistro is definitely one of my top spots for lunch. Good sandwiches and soups are always available and at a good price.

I was staying at a local B & B holed up in my room writing a book. I left once a day to get food. The first night I thought I would try Elm Street Bistro for takeout. The lady on the phone was extremely pleasant and recommended the pumpkin roll as a dessert. I took her advice and boy... More

We went for our first breakfast here. Long wait for coffee, long wait for breakfast. Food was good. Waitress could be more pleasant. Will try out more breakfast places down the road next time.

Try the mussels and the wedge salad. Get extra bread for the broth. My wife had the pot roast and claimed it to be the best she's ever had. Their selection of wines is impressive, too.
