Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, Late Night
Description: 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!!!

It is almost as if all of the locals there are positioned for a clear view of the door so they can see who comes in. As you walk in the door be prepared for the eagle eye as everyone there will stare directly at you follow you with their eyes, like one of those haunted paintings, as you make your way to a table or to the bar. You'll notice that most of the patrons are just sitting at mostly empty tables with hardly any food on them an maybe a half empty draft beer. They will continue to rubberneck and leer at you from time to time while you are eating and even openly talk about you or make fun of you to their companions. It seems as if most of these people have had no human interaction for months other than with the other customers at this establishment one night out of every weekend. Other than that, the employees are great at their jobs and the food is pretty good!

The Elbow Room is a bar with a restaurant attached to it. It is not the type of place you'd go for a special occasion. It's not the type of place you'd take your mother. It is a bar first and foremost. The wings are better at Bernie Murray's. The high ranking of the Elbow Room on TripAdvisor is a clear indication that someone or a group of people deliberately high scored this place.

If you are IN Elmira you MUST check out The Elbow Room. You won't find better wings anywhere else near there. Great atmosphere, great service, and amazing food. Decent prices and like someone else said..."The Cheers of Elmira"...so soo true!

The Best Wings and Burgers aound! The coldest beer and happy atmosphere makes this place great! Never disappointed! If placing your order at the bar and getting your drinks at the bar, as well, bothers you...then don't go....you're too lazy to begin with! Credit cards are not accepted!!!!!!

They do have the best wings I have ever had but menu is sadly lacking in any "healthy choices".
Be prepared - this is a cash only restaurant and there is no table service. So if you are not looking for a full menu and don't mind waiting at he bar for sertvice, this may be a good choice.
