We worked in the area and stopped in here a few times. We always had good food and friendly service. We tried a variety of things on the menu and it was always great...

Elmer's has a wonderful menu from eggs, bacon, sausage, ect. to crapes and pancakes (which are so yummy). The atmosphere is pleasant. There food is a little pricey.

Drove by, and decided to eat lunch. Service was extremely friendly and attentive, and food served pretty quick. Between us we had a hamburger & fries, waffle, eggs & bacon, and their very large delicious german pancake. All was well cooked, tasted great and typical of a local diner experience.

The food was less than disappointing.. Everything was over cooked. Hashbrowns and bacon were burnt.. Huge waste of money. Service was awful.. To top it off they were slow 3 tables in the whole place.. This was not the 1st time we tried this place. Wont waste our time again...
