Wow! Fast friendly service, great fish fry, fun feeling- also not a spec of dust on the decorations (this was impressive being an old building and only open once a week). If you haven't been you should check this place out!

My wife and I have basically tried all the fish fries in Elmira and we both agree the Shingle's fish fry is absolutely the best in town, but get their early on fish fry Friday because it's always packed

Simple soups and sandwiches weekday lunches, always home made. Rustic atmosphere and a smiling waitress. Fun to sit by the pot belly stove on a fall afternoon and enjoy their potato soup.
