I was visiting on business and the hotel staff recommended this as a great local place with great wings. I ate at the bar where the bartender did take time to make some small talk. Three TVs over the bar with sports, news and game...More

Its a great place to dine if you have overly large elbows and you're claustrophobic. Or fat or obese or diabetic. I recommend this place to anyone who doesn't like people and just wants some elbow room, man.

Their wings are supposed to be good if not great. Over priced they leave the wing tips on I could taste old oil ............................. do not waste your taste buds or your money . It's old & tired .

Billie Burger sure isnt the same thing I had 40 years ago. INEDIBLE. I asked for medium and they must have taken it to the glass factory in the Heights and incinerated it . Yeah, it took that long and there were only about 6...More

I rated this place as the "best wings in town" for several years in a row because they use to be just that, the best!! I haven't been to the Elbow Room in a couple of years and was looking forward to their wings. Unfortunately,...More

What a waste of time! Cash only, It takes FOREVER to get a Billy burger which was the WORST burger I ever had in my life. Was it even beef? Fully dressed, I tell them. So when it crawled out of the grave and made...More

I really wish this place allowed you to pay with a debit or credit card, that's the only negative in my opinion. It's an all-cash establishment which is inconvenient. Their wings are SO good. Definitely a must-have. They offer typical bar food in a bar...More

Thank you for your question, but I am a bit confused by it... The Elbow Room is a walk in Bar/Restaurant. We are not a buffet or affiliated with any Hotel. We have a full menu that you and your family may order from but we... More

A great place for food for you and the family, or just a few drinks. Great selection of beer, Craft, Micro Brews etc... Many people have described us as the Cheers of Elmira, and I agree. Come in alone and leave having made a few new friends. We are cash or check only but there is an ATM if needed. Stop by and give us a try. We are most famous for our wings, 15-16 per order, but there are other great selections on the menu. Special orders are no problem. If we've got the ingredients we'll accommodate you any way we can!!!
