We had breakfast here before eparting for the airport. We had a table with 7 people, 5 adults and 2 kids....we received a German pancake gratis which was great. The food was tasty, the service was quick and friendly and it was good value/reasonably priced for large portions. The biscuits were great. The best part of the meal was the... More

Elmer's can be counted upon for good food, open at hours when many other places are closed, and friendly service.

Very nice and friendly servers and hosts! Always makes me feel right at home. My husband and I find the meals large enough to share so we have some room for appies or dessert. Great place --oh, and the grandkids love to balloon art on Saturday and Sunday mornings!

Elmer's has a very good selection of great food, very good atmosphere. Service is great. I have been to some good family restaurants, but none that compare with Elmer's.

If you are looking for a family restaurant with great service and fair prices this is the place. The coffee is also very good and they just keep pouring it. Our favorite breakfast is the German Pancake . It is a baked masterpiece served with lemon slices , powdered sugar and surup. Hot out of the oven. If you are... More

Elmer's is always good, We have been going there for 6 years. They always have fresh seasonal food and we have never had a bad experience there. The manager comes by your table and welcomes you, it's clean, it's inexpensive and it's never crowded. I have friends who have lived here their whole lives and have never been. It's a... More

Came in on a busy father's day Sunday morning. Place was packed. We only waited 15 min and then seated and immediately given coffee and beverages. Our server Dana was very efficient and pleasant. She took great care of us. Food was delicious. We will be back.

Consider a Denny's upgraded by an interior designer, up the prices accordingly (but not astoundingly), add in generous food portions, attentive staff, appreciate the clean environment, and you have Elmer's. I was there to meet a business acquaintance and the place was nice enough that I was unembarrassed in having selected it. Had a large hamburger with unlimited fries (oh,... More

We made this choice by default. Past experience told us that Elmer's food wasn't gourmet but it was OK. - Wrong! All the service people were polite and friendly but our waitress pretty much ignored us so that couples who arrived after us were served and out of there while I was still begging for the bill. But, worse yet,... More

This was our first visit to Elmer's.....anywhere. It is like a Village Inn, or Denny's, but the comparison stops there. The nice lady greeted us and took us to our table . Our waitress was Maria. All the staff was well groomed. We were asked had we been to Elmer's before. We said no. A couple of minutes later, we... More
