After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to go to Lovejoy's. The positives were the good service and reasonable prices. Other than that the food was not what we expected. My husband had fish and chips. He said the fish was more like deep fried fish sticks and the fries were soggy. My sandwich was tasty, but... More

On an extended trip, we decided to spend the afternoon and overnight in Laramie since we'd lived there 40 years before. Obviously, most of the restaurants and bars that we knew no longer existed, so Elmer Lovejoy's was a new experience for us. We had our lunch there, each ordering a burger. My wife had the bison and I had... More

There were some reviews that mentioned the floor being uneven, I would say that is seems to slope, but isn't really uneven and it is an old building. Easy to find and there is free 2-hour public parking very close to the restaurant. Good food, well-prepared and good fish and chips too! The cheese bread came with lovely thick marinara... More

Really enjoyed Elmer Lovejoy's bar and grill! Definitely a great place to eat in downtown Laramie. Had several lunch specials and a full bar. The nachos were delicious! I had a salad and it was great and so were the burgers. Staff was friendly and we got our food in a timely manner. Would definitely visit again!!

Great lunch! The burgers were absolutely amazing......and this is a 2 thumbs-up from a gal who grew up eating home-raised Black Angus beef! Will was new staff, but super nice and am sure we'll see him next time thru! Also, super fun t-shirts and pint glasses which can be purchased from the bar for $3. a glass! : ) With... More

Have probably been to Lovejoy's a hundred times. I like to think of it as Laramie's full-service McD's. Nothing out of the ordinary here, but if you want a consistent experience, you'll find it here. This is an excellent bar food situation. Good fries, decent burgers, and very good everything else. You'll get served fast, and you'll be happy for... More

Great location. Watched a train go by across the street while we were there. Food was good, but nothing exceptional. Out hotel had given us a discount card for Lovejoy's, giving us a 10% discount.
