So glad I was in the area on business so I was able to stop in for an awesome meal. I love this place. Tasty well prepared food that I love to come back for. I love ham so that's what was my choice. I...really enjoy the people here. Elvira is a sweetheart and a her restaurant is loved. Other quests visiting the area on vacation said the vacation is not complete if they don't have a great meal from Elvira's. Service is always supreme as Daria is wonderful. Enjoy your time closed. See you when you open back up in the spring. Definitely a favorite.More

We stopped in for breakfast...delicious! For the most part our group of 4 ordered eggs, bacon, and biscuits or toast. Food was delivered quickly and it was hot and super tasty. The service was really good...never waited or asked for a refill on our drinks...as they were always full. Great quality food and really modern atmosphere.More

We always go here for breakfast, which I think is the best around. Just go early. Staff is always good and food is great.

Met with a business associate for breakfast. The food was excellent. The service was excellent. Great experience as always. When I'm in the area and Elvira's is open it's a must. Love the music and love the laid back environment in the Valley. Wish I...was closer as it would be be a definite weekly visit. Love when the owner comes sit at the table to check on her quests. Definite stop don't miss it!More

Don’t Do It The wait staff , management , and guest do not follow Covid 19 protocol. I was told by my waitress the entire restaurant staff tested for Covid 2 days before and they were all safe. I mean what on earth. It is...this reckless abandonment that causes sickness, death, and is weighing down our medical facilities and workers, and destroying our economy. The food was good but not worth the risk. It’s A NO FOR MEMore

We stopped at Elviras before heading home on Sunday morning. I had the hazy nana and my husband had the scrambler. Both were delicious and the service from these ladies was very good. I would love to try something else’s if we are ever in...the area again.More

My husband, friends and I were all camping in Townsend, TN. The campground host recommended Elvira’s. They were only open for breakfast and lunch but we gave them a try for lunch and were so glad we did! The food choices were varied and delicious....I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT sandwich ( with bacon aoli)! It was soooo good! I also had house made chips which were pretty standard. One friend had the chicken and waffles with hot honey. He said they were the best waffles he had ever eaten. (He is usually pretty picky -so a huge compliment!). All the others really enjoyed their food as well. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.More

We went to this restaurant Saturday for breakfast. We were disgusted that none of the employees wore masks. We are in the middle of a GLOBAL PANDEMIC with cases SURGING and employees were maskless we will not return.

Yes and Yes! For handicap access you will need to park in the back. There is ramp to use.

I think most of the rentals are pet friendly. If you call or email the owner, he is very quick in replying back.
