My grandparents used to LOVE Elmer's - they always had a decent menu and good food and the wait staff was very attentive. Our most recent visit indicated very little of that has changed - it's a good "go to" place - dependable dining suitable for all ages & group sizes.

We had breakfast here while on spring break and had a not so great experience. Items didn't come out together and some were forgotten. Bad service all around. Oh well, that's a first for me at an Elmers.

When I went I walked up there was a line so I went into the lounge and sat at the bar. Man your girls can make a bloody Mary. I enjoyed the company from the gentleman next to me and received some resources from him regarding moving.

The last time I was at an Elmer's Restaurant I was not impressed. However, we were visiting in Porrtland, Oregon last month and looking for a place to have a good breakfast. We have been very spoiled here in Sparks by the Sparks Coffee Shop, so we didn't really expect much from Elmer's. But it was close to where we... More

We drove 12 hours that day and just wanted a Good Meal. Service was great, fast and was "right on point" for what we needed. We weren't looking for luxury....we needed some "comfort food" and to be out of the car!!!

My husband and I were in town for Christmas. We went here for breakfast on December 26. I have never had such great service. Our cups were never empty. Having multiple servers was great. It was very very busy as being right after Christmas. But all the servers were friendly and very helpful. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This was the first place we visited for food on a recent tour of the US in our first stop of Portland. The food was good, big portions and the service was really good. Very knowledgable and attentive. All in all a decent place to go for something to eat

We had a very nice lunch here. The food was good, our waitress was very friendly and helpful, and the prices are in line with other similar eating establishments. The dining room was very clean as well. I wouldn't hesitate to stop again!
