I had researched places to eat in Owen Sound and saw Elsie's Diner mentioned. Say no more my husband and I love diners!
When I saw the pictures I personally thought no place can look that shiny and clean. Well Elsie's Diner does. The red leather on the booth seats and chairs sparkle. That's a good thing.
The menu was varied and most items run around $13 to $15 dollars so it is not cheap to eat here. My husband ordered the Clubhouse and I had a bowl of soup. That's because we had planned to have dinner around six. Anyway the soup was very good and for $3.48 it was even better considering it was a big bowl of soup. The Clubhouse had big chunks of chicken in it. Lots of fries and cooked well $13.99. A pop was ordered and the charge was $2.79 but included free refills. Considering that's expensive when you do not have a refill.
As I looked around the hamburgers seemed to be very large and juicy, the mac and cheese was so large the individual took half home. Then there are the shakes $4.29. Now they looked super! A table behind us had the chocolate milkshake while the one beside us had the strawberry shake. Mouthwatering!
As we waited for our food it was entertaining to look around us and see all the 50's items displayed. Right from an old record player, toy cars, baby buggy and even a Gumby.
I definitely want to go back to this restaurant to try one of those delicious hamburgers and of course a shake.
The only complaint we had was the service was beyond slow.
If you are in a hurry this is not the place to eat. Hopefully this will change.
