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

The Elmwood Inn has friendly staff, a laid-back atmosphere and consistently good food. Also they offer a rewards program that earns you points towards free food. There's plenty of parking .I always enjoy dining there.

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!
