Stopped here on our travels and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Service was also excellent and the restaurant was clean and orderly. This is the first time we have ever been to an Elmers and we were happy with the results.

Service was really good. Atmosphere was fine. The food left us sad, wishing we had gone somewhere else. We ordered kids pancakes that were tough and dry. Kids sliders were like hockey pucks. French fries were disappointing as was the prime rib sandwich. Only decent...More

We stopped for lunch on a Friday. I chose Eggs Benedict, and my wife had Mexican chicken salad with wheat wrap. Both were ample, fresh, perfectly prepared. Our server was attentive and helpful. Glass-wall building is pleasant, and clearly attracts a local clientele.

I stop at Elmer's every time I'm in Pocatello and I'm always impressed. Yesterday I had the crab salad and WOW ... it's worth the drive alone! My hubby had the turkey dinner and WOW ... he wishes his wife could cook that good !...More

Eggs Benedict are always a favorite here, but we have never had anything we didn't like. Cozy little place with okay-friendly staff, but you are definitely treated differently if you are a regular.

Elmer's had great food and big portions. All three boys had plenty to eat, and the service was great. We were able to get right in on a Sunday morning. It is right across the street from the Idaho State campus.
