Description: Elsie's Diner is a 50's style licensed full service 64 seat diner incorporating the 50's style in both decor as well as food selection. Our diner provides old fashioned home style meals using fresh local ingredients for eat in or take out. From the moment you enter Elsie's Diner you feel like you are stepping back in time. Customers can sit in a booth or a stool at the counter, enjoy our great 50's music and order a meal that they know is made fresh in our kitchen using local ingredients. Our menu includes many old fashioned favorites like mac and cheese, meatloaf and burgers as well as floats, malt shakes and banana splits. There are plenty of nostalgic signs and memorabilia to look at while they enjoy their meal or they can play the 50's trivia card game set at each table. A casual fun place to eat great home style food.

Great friendly service. Very good food, interest decor. Went with a two tables of people and they more than accommodated all of us with no reservation. I have terminal cancer and the girls at Elsie's Dinner wrote me a beautiful note and gave me a t-shirt what a sweet
Thing to do.

“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

What a pleasant surprise. An old friend recommended this restaurant and we were thrilled. This is a family owned, 50's themed establishment offering breakfast, dinner and supper. All home cooked meals using local meat and produce as available. Very bright, nicely decorated, very clean and friendly efficient staff. Had lunch and it was excellent. Food is Diner fare, and good. We will go back for sure. This is a great little gem.

“Very nice diner! ”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

We happened upon this diner by accident while we were lost. They were very busy but gave us a seat at the bar while we waited. We quickly got a clean table and shortly thereafter, our food! Lovely service and great food (we ordered breakfast)! I would recommend this diner to anyone!
