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

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.

The Elbow Room is known for their chicken wings, and they are extremely delicious. They still serve the wings with the tip section which is unusual these days. The rest of the food was average bar food. This is a popular establishment, so dinner time...More

Keep in mind this is a bar, not upscale restaurant. Very busy when visited. Limited seating so i recommend either go early Friday, Sat, or go during week, perhaps when easier to get table.Ordered at bar,which is standard here. Split steak sandwich with husband, comes...More

The Elbow Room is not my type of restaurant. If you enjoy greasy, deep fried foods . . . go for it. I wouldn't recommend it.

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!!!
