Pleasantly tastebud-surprised!

Walked to Elmer's because it was conveniently across the parking lot from La Quinta. Entered via the lounge--which was too cold--so we went into the dining room (pleasant temperature). Wait staff was a hoot! We had fun conversations with them! Ordered a glass of cab/merlot which was delightful... read more

We have eaten here twice in two months though it is adjacent to the campground where we are staying. The crab basket was way overcooked, almost inedible, the last time. The ice tea lacked ice and we could get the server who spoke Spanish to understand we needed ice. We finally had to ask another server who spoke English and... More

The food was delicious and bathrooms were clean. Would recommend and would eat there again. Only rated very good because service was a little slow.

Amanda was our waitress this evening. She did a great job taking care of us. The managment thought it would not be busy so they only had 2 waitresses on. 4 large groups came in close to the same time. The food took about 40 minutes, but it was very good. Our drinks were refilled quickly and she checked on... More

Whenever we have a craving for crab, we go to Elmer's. It's near the outlet stores, and easy to get into.

We ate both lunch and following-day breakfast here. Consistently good food for 3 senior citizens with widely varying food preferences. Appreciated the smaller-portion choices. Recommend

When my dad and I visited, we found that the family side of the diner was far too noisy for conversation. As a result we opted to eat in the lounge side which was virtually empty. But when we went to order drinks, the waitress told us that the alcohol they promised from the restaurant side was limited to 2... More

We often stay in Woodburn on business and have found Elmer's to be our choice of restaurant. Woodburn does not have any really good restaurants.

Basic coffee shop, stopped for an early lunch and had French Toast - nicely done. The inside is basic and wait staff nice and fast. Good basic food at a very reasonable price!

Never heard of this restaurant before; tasty food at a reasonable price right over I-5 from hotel. Layout similar to Denny's.
