Description: 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!!!

Its a great place to dine if you have overly large elbows and you're claustrophobic. Or fat or obese or diabetic. I recommend this place to anyone who doesn't like people and just wants some elbow room, man.

Billie Burger sure isnt the same thing I had 40 years ago. INEDIBLE. I asked for medium and they must have taken it to the glass factory in the Heights and incinerated it . Yeah, it took that long and there were only about 6 patrons at the bar. "fully dressed" actually means that you will get whatever they decide you should have. A tiny plop of mustard, a soggy tomato slice that was prepped the day before, and the bottom of the bun was HARD where they didnt seal the bag at night. The wings - omg people, how can anybody say they are the best in Elmira? You cant have tried wings anywhere else. So greasy you wont have to strain on the toilet.

I rated this place as the "best wings in town" for several years in a row because they use to be just that, the best!! I haven't been to the Elbow Room in a couple of years and was looking forward to their wings. Unfortunately, my visit on 10/18 and was greatly disappointing. I ordered 4 dozen wings, a side of onion rings and a tossed salad. The wings were small with little meat and weren't even slightly spicy (I ordered medium hot). In fact 1 order to go, had no wing sauce at all and just a pool of grease in the bottom of the to go box. The salad was bland and the Italian dressing that I have been getting for the past 15 yrs or more was mostly oil. I ended up taking the wings home and throwing them away! A HUGE disappointment! I won't be returning!

What a waste of time! Cash only, It takes FOREVER to get a Billy burger which was the WORST burger I ever had in my life. Was it even beef? Fully dressed, I tell them. So when it crawled out of the grave and made it to my table, I'm like, wheres the onions and tomato? I said FULLY DRESSED.The bar was nearly full but I was the ONLY diner at the time. WHY did it take FORTY MINUTES to get a burger and fries?
