If you are looking for the best Buffalo Style Wings, This is the place! The rest of the food is good, but you go there for the wings. You won't be sorry.

Simple, really good burgers, wings, & salads. Friendly service great local favorite. We visit 2-3 times a month & out of town visitors always want to order from here. Very consistent, the best blue cheese anywhere.

We ordered the medium wings which were excellent! My wife and I split The Masters, a huge butterflied filet, salad, and fries. This was more than enough for two, and the filet was cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere and excellent food!

Yes...their chicken wings are to die for, but let's not forget about the best Filet Mignon dinner and all of the other great items on their menu! The atmosphere is awesome and extremely friendly. I could go on and on. Just check it out!

The most delicious wings, especially when Rodney is in the kitchen. Crisp, hot, and tangy, you won't find a better chicken wing in town. The rest of the menu is very tasty, too. Great sandwiches, fresh salads, and delicious apps. It can get busy in...More

Thank you for your question, but I am a bit confused by it... The Elbow Room is a walk in Bar/Restaurant. We are not a buffet or affiliated with any Hotel. We have a full menu that you and your family may order from but we... More

A great place for food for you and the family, or just a few drinks. Great selection of beer, Craft, Micro Brews etc... Many people have described us as the Cheers of Elmira, and I agree. Come in alone and leave having made a few new friends. We are cash or check only but there is an ATM if needed. Stop by and give us a try. We are most famous for our wings, 15-16 per order, but there are other great selections on the menu. Special orders are no problem. If we've got the ingredients we'll accommodate you any way we can!!!
