“Meals with a smile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

My husband and I eat at Elmers often. Since we eat there regularly the staff know us by name and most often even if your special server is serving someone else they usually come by and greet you. The food is consistant and always very good. There are not many great breakfast places but this is one to try out. I love the elmer omelet and my husband likes the german pancake.

“best prime rib around.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

stopped in on a whim and wow what a great choice. Had prime rib and Yukon gold mashed potatoes, both were awesome. Everything appears home made except maybe the mixed veggies. salad and drinks were great and server was on the ball. will be back when I am in town again!

“Best breakfast ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We travel all around the world and stopped here for breakfast because the parking lot was full. We were not disappointed, Great food, service and at a good price. The wheat honey banana pancakes were excellent. The local meats were very good as well. Definitely would go back to breakfast here again.

“Food OK, service not OK”
2 of 5 bubbles 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.
