In town for the Bands of America Grand Nationals tournament, we had a large group and seated upstairs, the staff accommodated our last minute reservation and assigned us two great waitresses. We are a lively group but they handled us with class. Thanks St Elmo'sMore

St. Elmo is known for their cocktail sauce with their shrimp cocktail. It's about a 1:1 ratio of horseradish to cocktail sauce. It really cleans out the nasal passage, they do offer a mild version if you're not ready for it. The service is impeccable,...More
