After hearing so much about the Elbow Room, a group of us after golf stopped to have dinner. Boy were we disappointed. Those of us who ordered the T-bone steak had to cut through grizzle and fat. Not returning again.

Local, old style with good basic food. Nothing extra. Get a burger or steak and a drink. Tolerable noise level.

First let me say that I had to travel 40 minutes to reach the restaurant. I had a gift certificate worth $45.00 from action glass which had so many restrictions on it; it was almost impossible to use. In any case I've had the stakes...More
