We ate here twice and both times had about the same experience. The first time we had something fried. I think I had fish as I recall. It was tasty but a bit tough. Then we retired to the bar. The owner was there, The...More

Don't waste your time or money. We went in the afternoon so the place wasn't busy. Service left a lot to be desired. We seen our waitress 3 times, had to ask for a check. She was more concerned with the "lounge" area than the...More

This is a gamble. Pizza is a must have but other menu items are always a hit or miss. Prices are high. There is a pool table and a bar if the food is to bad.

We wanted to find a local pizza place, and the Elf's Den fit the bill. The pizza and beer were pretty delicious, I would go back if I'm in town again.

I used to really like the calzones here. But something seems to have changed. Smoking is allowed in the bar area so be forewarned. The staff has always been really great.

This restaurant is a must-visit! The food is absolutely fantastic, and the dining experience is ... unique. The calzones, prime rib, and gyros are always really, really good. The service is sometimes excellent and sometimes really bad.

I first saw this on the TV show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Things have changed, it is not decorated in Christmas decor. The food was OK but this is truly a local dive bar. I would not take my family here. I am glad I...More

This is no place I would want to go on a tour. It would be a great place to take a tour bus full of bikers or a division of Marines on a tour of duty. Try the Pagoda Chinese restaurant.
