We are from out of town and only reason we tried Elmer's was due to the high marks on Tripadvisor for this restaurant. We are avid followers and contributors but we don't understand the loyalty here. We split a prime rib sandwich and I had a glass of iced tea.....that was lunch. And it was a C- sand which at... More

We went here for breakfast and had the German Pancake, I must say this place is not very fancy and it somewhat like a Dennys on the inside but the staff are attentive and the food is very good tasting. Our waitress Brenda V went out of her way to separate our meal when she found out we would be... More

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
