Attended breakfast last Saturday, change of owners , change of name and slight change of fare. Previously this roadhouse was almost a 5 out of 5, new owners seem to have changed things slightly unfortunately for the worse. No greeting on arrival and table staff seemed ambivalent - why change things that worked so well in the past. Menu was... More

In days gone by, after a heavy night of plenty of champagne and wine, a typical hangover cure ware pickled items such as herring, cucumbers, onions etc. So when a special breakfest was described as pickled sardines, that caught my attention. The sardines were not the oily tinned type as one would have expected, but more like small herrings marinated... More

We came to the Elkhorn Roadhouse because we found it on TripAdvisor, and we were pleasantly surprised with the experience. The building doesn't have much street appeal, but we found the food to be delicious. The chicken burger on a squid ink bun was outstanding.

I've been to elk horn a couple of time recently. I've been for breakfast where there was literally sliced tomato on toast that cost me $15 without any flavour. Another time I went for coffee and cake. Everyone had received everything except my coffee. There was no one else there I had paid close to $14 for a coffee and... More
