We found ourselves passing through Salem again and remembered how much we enjoyed Elmer's when we stopped two years ago. We are happy to report both the food and the service were still great. Obvious they have a significant local following (which is always a good thing!) and we were lucky enough to get in just before the lunch crowd.... More

Big time yum breakfast and better than Denny's that is for sure.Service was extremely attentive when we were there and loads of breakfast choices and continually paying attention the coffee refills.I would definitely come back here.There is also a lounge attached but I did not check it out.

This was a default choice because our preferred places were closed for Monday lunch. But I have to admit, though this is comfort food and formica, the food was really tasty and our waitress was a pro. So I have no regrets.

We have eaten here many, many times and have never been anything but thrilled with the food, the service and the prices. We love to have breakfast for dinner....and when the mood strikes-there is no where else we choose. They are always gregarious, professional and prompt. Highly recommend!

A good place to go when you don't need fancy and just want a good meal. We were a large, noisy group and everyone enjoyed their dinner.

Stopped for a quick dinner and was surprised in the condition of the place. Stains, dead bugs, burned out lights, dust... Could live with most of that but the food was mediocre at best. Skip and move on. On the positive side the staff was extremely pleasant and quick.
