I dined here recently as we had heard that they were known for their steaks. Unfortunately, I ordered my steak medium-rare and it came to the table as medium - a little bit overcooked for my taste. The others in our party seemed to enjoy their food and would rate the restaurant a bit higher then I would.

The marinated steaks are fabulous. I love the swordfish tacos and sweet potato fries, broccoli with garlic.

I love this place. The steak and lobster was amazing! If you only go to Green port area for a day or two, stop by. The signage for the restaurant on the main road is small, so watch out for it

Good food, plentiful serving; nice wait staff. Seafood special was plentiful and all cooked to perfection including the lobster. Would recommend.

I went to this restaurant with my husband, parents-in-law, and my young daughter. I will try to make this as easy as possible to digest: Pros: Location near the beach, small/intimate dining atmosphere?, the waitress was friendly despite clearly being in the weeds waiting on 3 tables. We were clearly frustrated and she didn't say anything rude or act condescending... More

I would like to point out to the last reviewer John B about his "horrible" experience. You were a total jerk to the staff an waitress. My husband and I overheard the whole situation, the reason you were asked to leave was because you called the waitress the word for female dog in front of the whole restaurant. That's why... More

Went there for dinner with family. One of the wait staff (Judy) was rude. She argued with us over the fact that our prime rib was overcooked. We ordered medium rare and got well done. She came back with an attitude and told us she could choose to ask us to leave but we would still have to pay the... More

Best steak on the Island and has been for the past 50 years. My first date with my wife was at the Elbow Room.

After a day of wine tasting and fall festivities, my boyfriend and another couple came for dinner. It was off the beaten path but well worth it. We went on a Friday night and it was surprisingly not crowded at all which was lucky for us because the place is a little small. I can't imagine how the wait would... More

Elbow East is off the beaten path, but worth finding. They are noted for their delicious steaks, both marinated and un-marinated. The seafood is also great. ( I love their fried shrimp). It is certainly not a fancy place - the decor leaves much to be desired- but the food is always good, with nice sized portions and reasonable prices.... More
