The food and service at Elmers has been consistently good for as long as we can remember. In 40 something years we have never been disappointed and we are so glad that they continue to keep serving our favorites.

5 of us stopped in for breakfast. The Elmer's back home was great so we gave this a shot. Pretty mediocre w/ messed up orders, slow coffee refills, changed waitress halfway through the meal. Food was Ok. Probably look for a different breakfast place next time in town.

I visited Elmer's on a Sunday evening for dinner after arriving for a business trip. This location is within walking distance of three Hilton Hotels of the Greenbrier circle. It has easy access to Highway 26 as well. The place was moderately busy; the staff were friendly and helpful. I drink a LOT of water at restaurants and notice when... More

This place used to be the go to for breakfast. We didn't usually eat dinner or lunch here so this review is really catered to breakfast. I'm not sure what has happen here over the past couple years and not just this location but the quality of dishes and customer service has really taken a slide. That may or may... More

Not being a breakfast person, per se, I was somewhat skeptical when told that we were heading to Elmer's. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, the service, the value and the ambience. I had the hungry rancher breakfast which featured three eggs, 2 chunks of ham, bacon, sausage and hash browns. Wow! You couldn't go... More

Had the Avocado Benedict. Excellent Hollandaise sauce. Many of the dishes included avocados, so for me, it was great!

I wanted a local restaurant (staying at a nearby hotel). Thought I'd try Elmer's for dinner. Service was excellent, food was very good (of course not a fine dining experience), value was very good as well. I would go there again. Elmer's clearly has more options for Breakfast so I'd recommend they add more good options (perhaps vegetarian) to their... More

I enjoyed two meals at Elmers (late lunch and a dinner) during a recent work trip. I found their signature chowder to be very good, the hazelnut encrusted cod very good, and the service excellent. I would love to return and try their large breakfast options including crepes, German pancakes, pancakes, and spectacular looking omelettes.
