The strawberry crape breakfast was awesome and just the right amount of food. It comes with bread and eggs and is so good. I did try the German pancake and i wasn’t real impressed.

This has been a consistently good Elmer' for years. Upscale diner food, excellent breakfast/lunch variety, fast service and best prime rib. Family friendly and less than a mile from I-5 freeway.

Top notch service! Good food at a reasonable price. Always a great option when you don't feel like cooking and want some simple comfort food.

Our group of four recently stopped at Elmer's for lunch. Our server, Tanya, was fantastic! She was friendly and efficient without being overbearing. The food was good, although somewhat overpriced.

Think Denny's or Shari's but locally owned. Meal quality was medium, service was friendly but a little slow given there was hardly anyone in the place, again medium. The restaurant was clean but nothing special otherwise.

Since we rarely look for restaurants that do or do not serve alcohol, I can't answer for this particular Elmer's. I do know several do have alcohol available in their Lounges.
