“Food OK, service not OK”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

We were visiting Oregon last week, and stopped at Elmer's for a late breakfast. We were seated in a reasonable amount of time, but once seated, the service went downhill. Our waitress was inattentive. It took almost an hour to get served. She did not come back to check for drink refills, etc. We are not particularly demanding diners, but we all felt neglected. We drove past the diner on several occasions, and the consensus was unanimous - let's find somewhere else to eat.

The food is typical diner fare, not worth putting up with the poor service.
