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!!!

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

We ordered the medium wings which were excellent! My wife and I split The Masters, a huge butterflied filet, salad, and fries. This was more than enough for two, and the filet was cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere and excellent food!

Yes...their chicken wings are to die for, but let's not forget about the best Filet Mignon dinner and all of the other great items on their menu! The atmosphere is awesome and extremely friendly. I could go on and on. Just check it out!

The most delicious wings, especially when Rodney is in the kitchen. Crisp, hot, and tangy, you won't find a better chicken wing in town. The rest of the menu is very tasty, too. Great sandwiches, fresh salads, and delicious apps. It can get busy in the evenings, but there's room for everyone and the staff is great at tending to... More

The Elbow Room is a long standing traditional "good place to eat" restaurant in Elmira. It's great for lunches as well as dinners. Burgers, sausage sandwiches, melts and their famous wings are all top shelf. At night "The Masters" steak dinner is comparable to any fine steak house. Add in a friendly owner like Billy and a great staff like... More

Yes, it's a sports bar. Yes, the atmosphere is rustic and homey. No, they don't take credit cards (although there is an ATM on site). Yes, you have to place your own order at the bar. But honestly, I have never—and I mean NEVER—had a better steak in my life than the one they call "The Masters" at Elbow Room... More

For those of you that are local and like to dine at local restaurants, The Elbow Room lives up to diners expectations. We recently had The Masters, a Filet Steak that is as good as any steak house. It was as soft and tender as could be. And double high steak made it enough for two meals.

I have been eating at the Elbow room for years and they have consistently had the best wings in Elmira. They are known for Burgers and other dishes, but I never get past the wings. Cooked to perfection with your choice of sauces, the wings are served with Celery and their custom made blue cheese dressing which is OUTSTANDING. The... More
