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.

I had eggplant parm which was very good and large. I brought half home. Our waitress-Angie- was friendly and efficient. My husband had the seafood special which he also enjoyed. The restaurant was crowded which is a good sign. We usually have the pizza, so this was a nice change.
