I've been going here for years and have never had a bad experience. The wait staff is always super friendly and the bartenders are always on top of their game. Some nights are busier than others so if you aren't into crowds I recommend not going on a Friday. If you sign up for their royalty rewards program expect a... More

Met friends for an early dinner during a week night. It is easy great place to have a nice dinner and visit without a lot of noise from the nearby bar. Our friend's salad was huge and looked very fresh. Another friend asked that a special quesadilla be made for her due to dietary concerns. Her meal came just as... More

There was to much food with this meal and enough left over for another time. The service was fast and friendly. There are several tv's in the bar area with plenty of seating at the bar or tables.

My husband and I tried out the Elmwood Inn for dinner on Monday night and were so pleased that we returned with our three daughters on Sunday! The food was excellent at both visits and the staff was very pleasant. The only downside was on Sunday we were the only ones seated in the front (downstairs) room and seemed to... More

The Elmwood Inn is one of those places that has been around forever....and there's a good reason for this. The food there is very good, inexpensively priced, and the place is just "comfortable." It's built into an old residence on Mount Hope Ave., with an old feel inside the place. It has a full bar, which many people visit just... More
