I really wish this place allowed you to pay with a debit or credit card, that's the only negative in my opinion. It's an all-cash establishment which is inconvenient. Their wings are SO good. Definitely a must-have. They offer typical bar food in a bar...More

Stopped here for dinner after the Indycar race. The food was delicious and service was ok. It was a bit odd ordering the food with a bar tender and the establishment is cash only. Would have 5 stars if more payment options. Would recommend based...More

Going to the Elbow Room is like the tv show Cheers, everyone seems to know everyone else, everyone is friendly and it's just a great place to go for a drink, eats, or both. It is famous for their chicken wings for good reason, they...More

Literally the worst place I've eaten in the last 3 years. From the time I walked in the door and seated myself, I wished I'd gone to a high school cafeteria. I grabbed the menu and when no one came to take my order, I...More

This is a classic bar downhill from Harris Hill Soaring Center and near Elmira College. Easy to find, it's in the middle of a residential area and parking might be an issue, however we were able to park without a problem. When you go inside,...More

A little local place that is always busy!! The wings are excellent, as is all the food on the menu. Prices are reasonable.

Might be a change in ownership, but there's no change in their huge selection of beers, ciders, etc. as well as their awesome food!!! You can still get the kickin' wings, burgers, and even steak dinner, but now there are some great new additions keeping...More

We found this place on Yelp, which recommended it for wings. They were right. We ate an order of the best buffalo wings I have tasted in a long time. Luckily, the bar also served a decent IPA as well. It seemed to be a...More

Great wings but be sure & get there early. Seating is often hard to come by so plan on that or take them to go. It is a fun bar where if you're local you'll always see someone you know.

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!!!
