Good food at reasonable prices

It's a little off the beaten path so it may not get as much traffic as other Elmer's Restaurants, but it lived up to the reputation of the chain. I was in the mood for a seafood omelet and was not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere was quaint as usual. I hope more people discover... More

Grandkids, kids and my better galf joined me to celebrate a couple of November birtdays. I ordered the German pancake and really enjoyed. Others dined on omlets, ranch breakfast and french toast all were perfect as was our energetic server. We were treated to stawberry crepes and Birthday song from the staff. Can't go wrong here.

Elders is a local restaurant with many locations It is a diner style restaurant. They have great breakfast with some unique choices. They serve dinner all day. The lunch and dinner menu are what you would expect from sandwiches and burgers, to comfort food. I have never had a bad meal there

This is my go to place for Sunday breakfast. The food is consistent and good, the service is super if you sit in the lounge. Erica and Kimberley do a great job. I like the lounge because there are no young children present. They usually have sports on the TVs (without sound) so you can keep track of scores etc.... More

When we were ordering I wanted my bacon crisp and the waitress suggested also ordering it dry. She was right on as it came out perfect. My wife and I both ordered bacon and eggs with the potato pancake they make that has a little green onions, bacon, and Tillamook cheddar cheese that was excellent and a hefty serving. We... More

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.
