Always accommodating for our family group!

We have 15 to 20 for birthday dinners, and this restaurant is capable of handling our group. The food is good, and the service was quite good, for a group! They have a varied menu, a typical family style restaurant. I heard no complaints about the food, and various meal types were ordered.

First of all, the food is just fine at this Elmer's. It's not life changing cuisine, but when you're desperate and exhausted, it's a surprising bright spot when all you could have reasonably expected was a dim, nearly snuffed out star. It's the people who made our experience a five star. And the Bloody Mary's, which were better than most... More

Chain diner with typical diner-type food, but breakfast options are all delectable. I meet with a small group of friends regularly for breakfast and collegial support and Elmer's provides the perfect venue for food, service, and comfortable surroundings.

It was okay. Pretty basic. The food was alright, and worth the price. My daughter enjoyed it- and I do regret not ordering the German pancake. During our stay, it was right next to the hotel- so we ate there several times.

Great menu, great service. You will not leave hungry. Located next to the Holiday Inn Express which makes it easy to walk to dinner if you are staying there. Very good clam chowder too!

My bacon cheeseburger was very good, the toppings were fresh and tasty. My husband had the chicken strips and said they were average like what you would buy at store..he was hoping for batter fried so these were a disappointment.

Stopped in as we passed by after looking at trip advisor comments and found the food average. A nice burger and fries with good fries but the burger was unseasoned and very blah. The place looked in need of refreshing as there was a big tear in the carpet seams with considerable size pieces missing and it looked extremely worn.... More

Our favorite place to go for a great meal. The staff is always friendly and they take good care of us. They check in to deliver more coffee often and we never feel neglected. Special requests are not frowned upon. My husband is famous for asking for extra berries and syrup, so now they know him and just bring them... More

We go here now more than ever since their competition continues to slip more and more. Elmer's has managed to continue doing it right. Good food, good prices and good service. A little out of the way to find but well worth the find.

OK for starters the parking lot is BAD and serious need of repair! Also this place is HIDDEN behind a bunch of vegitation that badly needs trimming! However if you get past that your in for a wonderful meal!!! At least breakfast or lunch! I did not eat dinner here at all, but have had several breakfasts and lunches prior... More
