I was recently at Elaine's for a special occasion that had specific plans on ordering pizza for our group to keep things simple. We had made reservations for 6:30 at night. After everyone took time to decide on what pizzas to order, the waitress took our order of four pizzas plus salads for our group. Several minutes later, the waitress... More

Brought to lunch after business in Berlin. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Service was very good. Food was excellent. Options range from typical pizza palace to Italian restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their selections. Onion Soup was very good. If I lived in the area I would return for dinner. Very large place with banquet area.

This was our first visit. It's located on the Berlin Turnpike, and is bright and clean, and has an interesting dining balcony (closed that evening). We had their pizza and swordfish. Swordfish was a bit fishy but good. We went on a Sunday evening and found the place had few diners. Despite that, service was a bit slow. The dessert--creme... More

Elaine's is our go-to restaurant. We eat there more than at any other restaurant. We love the food and the variety. Excellent Italian, steaks and fish. The pizza is wonderful too. Dino, the owner, and all of the staff are great! Service is excellent and friendly. We highly recommend Elaine's.

We found Elaine's by accident as we were trying to get into another restaurant in the area with a 2 hour wait. We decided to find something else. We saw Elaine's on the way and decided to try in. Our server was very pleasant, the portions were perfect, and the prices were decent. It was a nice surprise!

Had a enjoyable meal, and prices were reasonable for the portions. But however some of the servers should be leaving their attitudes at home. Service should be friendly, and not harsh. Coffee should be served HOT and not thrown into a microwave to heat it,,, and should be FRESH,,not served from a pot sitting on a burner for some time,,,... More

Elaine's has very good food, reasonably priced. It also has a large meeting room to accommodate events such as business group meetings or showers. Everyone loves the buffet and great service.

Elaine's, on the Berlin Tpke, has a very popular, reasonable Sunday Brunch, with offerings to please everyone, save room for dessert!
