We stopped at Elmer's for lunch as we were in town working. When you walk in, you see that this is a very dated restaurant and that might be there theme, but it just seemed very run down to me. The menu is probably close...More

This restaurant has a variety of great breakfast items. From the full breakfast of scrambled eggs, hash browns, ham and toast to the good strawberries with crepes. Clam chowder and country fried steak is also very good.

Nice breakfast with many coffee refills (you'll still need to real thing). Three large pancakes come as a side dish to a large three-egg omelette. So if you eat both of them you've had TWO breakfasts for the price of one. Many different breakfast options...More

It just seems better than Denny's. It comes across as a home cooked meal and the servers and the way the company is run seems more like your home town place. The food is tasty and a good price.

Clean and nice staff. The kids got a giant German pancake. Everyone was happy with their food and we all left really full!
