We ate here prior to a family bowling event. I had the breakfast burger, substituting turkey for beef, and my wife had the BLT, half of which I ate as well. My burger was great, which sometimes turkey burgers are not, and my wife's BLT was quite tasty as well. The whole group of eight cleaned their plates up pretty... More

Nice place to meet for an after work happy hour. Good prices on appetizers and a fun place to bowl if you're interested.

I stop in on a fairly regular basis for lunch in the cafe portion of Elsie's. Their "mom-&-pop" cafe food is downright good!

In townvisiting family. We called ahead for reservation to seat nine of us on a Friday nite. No problem. Good food, turned out to be fish fry nite. Everyone full, including the teenaged boys! Place was clean. Service was attentive and fun. Menu had plenty of choices, tho I admit my fish fry hit it big with me.

Elsie's Restaurant Bar and Bowling Center? Yup! You must go there to be amazed at how the food tastes and is presented. Pretzels to begin? Yes, please. I have never had anything off the menu that I didn't like. The wait staff is quite attentive; the food arrives pretty quickly; and you never feel rushed. Have been here on many... More

Tried their German potato pancakes. Gross under cooked, tasteless mess. Server was totally unattentive. Never offered refill for beverages. Generally a good place, last 2 breakfasts marginal at best.
