Have dined here several times now and the food is first quality and well prepared. Large portions and very friendly staff. Prices are a bit on the upper end but I don't mind paying a little extra for good food. Don't let the looks of the outside deter you. Looks like a pub/bar but inside dining room is nice.

We were invited to a dinner party. Our waitress was very friendly, helpful and professional. We had questions regarding a dietary restriction and that was quickly answered and taken care of. The portions were generous and delicious. Our waitress was on top of our liquid refreshments. We would definitely go back.

Never disappointed here. The chicken parm is delicious, as are the wings! Not complaint there is that there are only 3 wing flavors. The portions are always generous and the staff is friendly and helpful. The dining room is adorable, decorated with many cow figurines. There's a nice woodstove too to keep you warm in the chillier months. Bathrooms are... More

My wife and I were debating on a place for dinner, when we thought of Elsie's. We'd driven by more than a billion times, but all the cars in the parking lot seemed to grab our attention. After all, it must be popular right? The interior is nice, rather laid back like the rest of Wallkill. The bar was busy... More

This restaurant is a great casual place to enjoy some good comfort food..love the french onion soup! Seating is spacious for small groups or large. There is a small bar at the entrance if you would like to start or end your dining there.

Stopped by there for a few craft beers. The appetizers were good and the service was great. This is a great place to stop and meet locals from the surrounding area. It is a very friendly place and I will return.
