We ate here based on reviews and were a little disappointed. Food was average and our server, though really nice, was stretched way too thin, they were very understaffed. Will try another place next time we are in Boise.More

The wait staff was helpful, kind, and funny. The food was better than I had hoped. This was our first trip to Elmer’s but won’t be our last.More

We had breakfast with friends while visiting Boise. Everyone found something they wanted on the menu. We all liked what we got. We did not have to wait to be seated and we were a party of 9.More

This particular Elmer’s has it down. Fireplace was going, service was quick and excellent and my Cobb salad was outstanding (fresh, generous portions and delicious).

Service was good, experienced. The food was subpar this time. Food was cold to luke warm. Maybe cook was not having a good day. Service was normal on time.More

A Boise staple right on Capitol Blvd with lots of parking in front and on side of building. If north-bound on Capitol Blvd, turn left at light on University and take first left. Nice breakfast, lunch and dinner menus with small portions (and price) available...More

I stopped in for lunch after the trolley tour and ordered the Yukon French toast. Beyond yummy. Worth every calorie! Elmer's clearly is popular with the locals (always a good sign) because it was crowded when I came in and crowded when I left.More
