We rented Elsie’s bus for a birthday outing. The bus was very nice. Arrived to pick us up on time and driver was very nice and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this service

This local restaurant and bar has been around for awhile. However, our visit for dinner was a bit disappointing. Food was just OK, and our server was sweet, but not very knowledgeable. Although we were in town for several days, we decided not to revisit...More

Decided to stop at Elsie’s and try out the lunch menu. Despite traveling thru Caledonia a lot this year, we just learned of Elsie’s. Although it was almost one, they kept resupplying the salad bar and the pizza bake. Had a good variety of items...More

I have been to Elsie's a few times. The service is always good, the food is good but the wine could use some improvement (they serve little bottles of Barefoot wine). I think it's probably a lot of fun at Elsie's on weekend nights but...More

While I am not a salad bar person I have to admit they have a GREAT salad bar! Always fresh with lots of options.... even pickled herring. Menu items have always been very good. No weird sauces with names you never heard of, just good...More

You can't go wrong with a 2.50 bottle of Stella Artois!! Happy hour pricing until 7pm We also had bacon cheeseburgers. The burgers were good, but the buns were very dry. I'd make sure I asked for a fresh bun next time Service was good.
