A great place for food for you and the family, or just a few drinks. Great selection of beer, Craft, Micro Brews etc... Many people have described us as the Cheers of Elmira, and I agree. Come in alone and leave having made a few new friends. We are cash or check only but there is an ATM if needed. Stop by and give us a try. We are most famous for our wings, 15-16 per order, but there are other great selections on the menu. Special orders are no problem. If we've got the ingredients we'll accommodate you any way we can!!!

The best bar food & more!

The Elbow Room is a part of Elmira's eating, drinking, & sports culture. They have some of the best "bar food" like amazing chicken wings, fried favorites like cauliflower & mushrooms, and their huge and juicy Billy Burger! However, they also have delicious and large dinner salads and a... read more

BEST WINGS IN THE TWIN TIERS ! My wife had a hankering for wings and we only know of one place who has wings just like any good pub in the Buffalo area. Accessible parking is sparse and not clearly marked but the back entrance is easy to get to and no steps. The place was busy with a family... More

I have family in Elmira that I visit around once a year, and everytime I go there, I have to go to the Elbow Room at least once, if not twice. The wings are absolutely wonderful. The sauce is great and they are crispy. The homemade blue cheese dressing is outstanding. Do be warned though, it is cash only.

If you are looking for the best Buffalo Style Wings, This is the place! The rest of the food is good, but you go there for the wings. You won't be sorry.

We ate at the Elbow Room in Elmira, NY while in town for college registration with our daughter. The Elbow Room was suggested to us when we asked about a good place for burgers and wings. The front of the restaurant is that of any neighborhood bar. I was expecting older decor with dim lighting (which would have been just... More

Quantities are unbelievable.. Most times you will need take home containers. The filet is the best you can ever have, anyplace. Cooked to perfection and enough for two or plan to take home half of it. Wings are fabulous cooked perfectly, and seasoned to your choice. The Billy Burger is the best and biggest you can imagine, cooked as you... More
