They have something for everyone and clearly care about their customers. As a vegetarian I am always happy to find a fun place like the Elmwood Inn that has a number of tasty options on the menu. On my most recent visit I had their ultimate grilled cheese sandwich and really enjoyed the flavor. They put in just the right... More

Friendly, efficient staff. Comfortable, informal dining. The burgers and veggie wrap my colleagues had looked good. I had the catfish and the portion was so large, I took part of back to the hotel and ate it for breakfast.

The atmosphere and service were outstanding. Friendly, pleasant, and completely satisfying in every way. Delightful bar and the bartender was engagingly energetic. The food selections are varied and wonderfully prepared. We were very happy with the final bill ... which included wine and dessert along with entrees. A true value for the experience!

Ate here with the family and everyone enjoyed their meal. They now have Cheesy Eddie's desserts - the best desserts you can find anywhere! Love the atmosphere and the service is always attentive.

First impressions would not have me returning to this restaurant. The service was poor. The Tuna Melt was mediocre, at best. The Turkey Reuben was also nothing to talk about. According to the other reviews, we may have just come on a bad day.

The food is always good here but today the french onion soup wasn't so good. Everything else was good. The new waitress, Jennifer did an awesome job!!

Meet up with friends for a late dinner on the deck on a Sunday evening. The Inn was quiet and the deck provided a great opportunity to enjoy the sunshine. Wide variety of food and beverage choices. Good location with easy access.

Thank Julie T
