This is a place I stop at when I'm in Albany. They have a great breakfast menu and will serve it all day. Good family friendly restaurant and good food and service. (Gets packed for breakfast, by the way, so go earlier in the morning)...More

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.

I had the crab/bacon/avocado omelet; I think it was called "Crabado", which was delicious and the portions were very generous. We enjoyed our breakfast and it was hearty enough that we skipped lunch.

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.
