We recently sold our country farm & moved to the city. While waiting for escrow to close on our new home we stayed for just over a week at a motel next door to Elmer's restaurant. While there we used their take out service by phoning in our order in from our motel then having it delivered to our room.... More

We stopped for lunch. 4 adults and 4 children. The lady who served us was very nice and pleasant. I would definitely recommend and would go back.

This Elmers serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. I like the ambiance with the fireplace and homey decorations.

Has a real home town diner feel with the back room bar for the adults way back by the bathrooms. Great for families as the menu has something for everyone, had the chowder and salad. Was disappointed by the desert, it must be a regulation that all baked goods be refrigerated, this might be fine before the cake is cut... More

This is the perfect breakfast stop. Super convenient location, always clean and the service is great. My husband decided "pancakes" for lunch so Elmer's was the 1st thing that popped into my mind. They make old fashioned pancakes that are almost as good as my Mom's, and that's pretty good. He lived on the wild side and chose Marion Berry... More

Elmer's is certainly a step up from Denny's! For a chain diner, Elmer's offers a nice selection of comfort-style foods at fair prices. As are most restaurants in the small town of Grants Pass, Oregon, the pricing for all meals are much lower than comparable restaurants in larger cities, both in Oregon and especially California. I particularly like their breakfast... More

I had vowed never to eat at Elmer's again after the poor service, wrong dinner served by a surly waitress, however the group chose ELMER's so decided OK I'll give them one more try. Breakfast was excellent, service was great; coffee cups kept full by our pleasant waitress. Sorry I didn't get her name to commend her for her service... More

We took out of town family members to Elmers and it was excellent as always. It offers a wide choice on the menu so the meat and potatoes man and the lighter fare lady are both satisfied. The wait staff are quick, competent and very friendly. Great coffee too! Its our go to place for family, friends or just US.

Wow, the service the last two times we visited here was fantastic. It helps the food which is not bad as well. Clam chowder is okay. Weve had quite a few things off the menu and were at the very least, satisfied, but the service is better than most if not all the other restaurants in GP. (At least for... More
