We went to this establishment because of a recommendation from someone at one of the wineries. You order at the bar, pay (in cash), and then the food is brought to you. We ordered wings and fries with gravy. One order of each was plenty...More

Food is really good and the place is nice. You go to the bar and order but they will serve the food. Cash only but they have an ATM.

I ordered wings and cheese sticks. The wings are excellent like always and the cheese sticks are the best around town.

Came in for Elmira’s best wings and found a refurbished bar and grill that is really a gem. You can easily have a family dinner. Check out the menu. Park out back and in the summer an very nice outside deck. If I lived in...More

The wings were crispy, fresh and delicious. The homemade bleu cheese dressing was great. Great service.

The Elbow Room is our go to place, especially for take out when there just isn't time to cook. The quality of the food is consistent. I especially enjoy the grilled chicken salad as it is a healthy portion. The issue we have had is...More

I love deep fried cauliflower and they have the best at the Elbow Room! Their other food is very good too.

This place has the best burgers, salads and chicken wings. It is not a quiet place if you want to chit chat, as a matter of fact it is always noisy. The music is loud and so are the customers. It is in a convenient...More

Dark and somewhat forbidding little tavern but locally popular and the food and service is OK. So's the beer.

Thank you for your question, but I am a bit confused by it... The Elbow Room is a walk in Bar/Restaurant. We are not a buffet or affiliated with any Hotel. We have a full menu that you and your family may order from but we... More

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!!!
