Never disappointed here. The chicken parm is delicious, as are the wings! Not complaint there is that there are only 3 wing flavors. The portions are always generous and the staff is friendly and helpful. The dining room is adorable, decorated with many cow figurines. There's a nice woodstove too to keep you warm in the chillier months. Bathrooms are... More

My wife and I were debating on a place for dinner, when we thought of Elsie's. We'd driven by more than a billion times, but all the cars in the parking lot seemed to grab our attention. After all, it must be popular right? The interior is nice, rather laid back like the rest of Wallkill. The bar was busy... More

He was really friendly and inviting. He took our order even thou the kitchen was closing in five minutes. We were... More

This restaurant is a great casual place to enjoy some good comfort food..love the french onion soup! Seating is spacious for small groups or large. There is a small bar at the entrance if you would like to start or end your dining there.

Stopped by there for a few craft beers. The appetizers were good and the service was great. This is a great place to stop and meet locals from the surrounding area. It is a very friendly place and I will return.

I've driven past Elsie's for years and last Saturday we decided to stop and have lunch. Only the bar was open, but we decided to give it a try. Ordering salads and ice tea was an adequate lunch. My spinach, portabella mushroom and mozzarella was very good, My companions breaded shrimp salad was very good. Lunch for two was just... More
