Come for the wings, stay for the beer

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... read 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

I live out of state, but always make it a priority to stop in to the Elbow Room for wings! In my opinion, they have the best wings in town. And, the wings are large, not small like at Buffalo Wild Wings. If you want traditional Buffalo Wings, this is the place!

They've been doing it for more years than I have hands and toes. It has to be how they cookem, because I've been eating there since I've been 10yrs old and now I'm let's just say I'm older:) and nothings changed. The thick and chunky blue cheese that comes out cold with the hot wings, no one else duplicates it.

It is where I take my teenagers for dinner as they love it. The food is greasy -- Chicken Wings, cheese sticks, chicken fries... get the picture? The staff is very nice and helpful! They make a great drink.
