First time to eat here. Decided on getting the crab legs and a cup of gumbo. The crab legs were cooked right and with two lbs was just enough for the two of us. The gumbo was really good but a little to hot! Comes...More

Elmo's was a little disappointing. Website looks great but food is decent at best. Fried seafood was bland. Grilled fish was surprisingly good. Place is okay to drop in if expectations aren't to high; looks old and kinda dirty

I'd rather go to Elmos than just about any other restaurant in the area. The all you can eat crab is a must. When we first started coming here years ago The all you can eat crab was approximately $18. It has increased over the...More

It's not air conditioned really but not too hot. It was worth the crab legs. We started out just getting the 2lbs each but soon realized that you can unsnap your pants and stop drinking water and fit about 4-6 lbs of crab legs in...More

I love it when something inconspicuous reveals itself to be anything but. This true of Elmo’s Grill. This is a roadside shack of a place that can easily be unseen from the highway, ignored for its lack of architectural panache, or disregarded as something it...More
