Great place for a burger or wings! The chef salad is one of my favorites. The portions are large so arrive hungry and relax and enjoy!

On our way to Connecticut, we decided to spend the night in Elmira, NY and selected this place using TripAdvisor. We didn't want anything fancy, so this place fit with our desires. The inside is well layed out with a nice neighborhood atmosphere. The menus...More

We loved this restaurant! Nice atmosphere and excellent food. The chicken wings and the boneless wings were huge and so juicy! One of the best meals I've ever had!

We spent one night in Elmira so four of us dined at Elbow Room on the recommendation of a couple of locals. We found room at the bar thanks to another guest who offered to move down a few. This local also advised us on...More

Several choices of the way your wings will be prepared. As well as sandwiches, wraps, salads, etc. A well stocked bar which is hopping all evening. A fun stop on our way to Watkins Glen.

This little pub located around the corner from the Arnot Ogden Medical Center is about as unassuming as you can get from the outside. It almost looks closed. Inside is a different story. Happy customers enjoying good pub-style food and drinks from the full length...More

Had to take a detour to the emergency room and this place was right around the corner. Ordered wings which were great. The sandwiches come on rolls or wraps. Everything was fresh and the staff was very friendly. Glad we stumbled on this place.

Simply put, the best wings in Upstate NY. BUT the real surprise here is the amazing Filet that they call “The Masters.” You would never expect it in a location like this but it’s the best cut of meat you will find anywhere at any...More

We went to this establishment because of a recommendation from someone at one of the wineries. You order at the bar, pay (in cash), and then the food is brought to you. We ordered wings and fries with gravy. One order of each was plenty...More

Thank you for your question, but I am a bit confused by it... The Elbow Room is a walk in Bar/Restaurant. We are not a buffet or affiliated with any Hotel. We have a full menu that you and your family may order from but we... More

A great place for food for you and the family, or just a few drinks. Great selection of beer, Craft, Micro Brews etc... Many people have described us as the Cheers of Elmira, and I agree. Come in alone and leave having made a few new friends. We are cash or check only but there is an ATM if needed. Stop by and give us a try. We are most famous for our wings, 15-16 per order, but there are other great selections on the menu. Special orders are no problem. If we've got the ingredients we'll accommodate you any way we can!!!
