After reading a write up, we decided to give Elmo's a try. We were returning from Boston and ready for a good meal. Seafood seemed like a good choice. We decided to eat in the bar area. A man, whom we later assumed to be...More

My friend wanted seafood. We decided to try Elmo's. We entered thru the bar area and was quickly greeted by the bartender(I think her name is Jane). We were told the dining room opens at 4. We sat in a booth and Jane preceded to...More

Elmo's is a local favorite. The owner is wonderful and the food is excellent now. Been many times and have not been disappointed at all. Seafood can be tough but this place nails it every time.

Hostess and waitress were helpful and nice to squeeze us in on a busy Saturday with lots of reservations. Service was good, but I felt the food and atmosphere were just so so. We all had soup or salad and seafood entrees. My 3 companions...More
