Ideally located next to the free parking downtown. Able to watch the trains go by drinking an excellent High Plains Pale Ale. service pleasant and efficient and the food really good value. The tenderloin tips were perfectly cooked and topped the smooth mash covered by a most luscious onion, mushroom jus. Will definitely return.

Lovejoy's is consistent: Good pub food, great service regardless of how busy they are, and has reasonable prices on daily specials and kids meals. We especially enjoy getting a window seat and watching the trains go by. In our house when no one wants to cook, we can all agree to head down to Lovejoy's.

Lovejoys gyro is always fantastic. It's a fun, sporty atmosphere and the wait staff has always been good. My family and I have come here many times and they are consistent with service and food.

I went to school at UW and I went to Lovejoy's often. Never had a bad meal here. Great atmosphere, great food, great service. I don't live in Laramie anymore, but I go to Lovejoy's whenever I get within 50 miles. I've shared this place with my wife and kids. It's worth your time to hang out here.

After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to go to Lovejoy's. The positives were the good service and reasonable prices. Other than that the food was not what we expected. My husband had fish and chips. He said the fish was more like deep fried fish sticks and the fries were soggy. My sandwich was tasty, but... More

On an extended trip, we decided to spend the afternoon and overnight in Laramie since we'd lived there 40 years before. Obviously, most of the restaurants and bars that we knew no longer existed, so Elmer Lovejoy's was a new experience for us. We had our lunch there, each ordering a burger. My wife had the bison and I had... More

There were some reviews that mentioned the floor being uneven, I would say that is seems to slope, but isn't really uneven and it is an old building. Easy to find and there is free 2-hour public parking very close to the restaurant. Good food, well-prepared and good fish and chips too! The cheese bread came with lovely thick marinara... More
