One of the nicer Elmer's we have been to. Good food, good service and friendly staff. Dinner salad a bit bland and unimaginative, but the food was well cooked and nicely presented.

This place is one of our family favorite spots in Albany. Food is consistently good along with the service. Breakfast for dinner and the French dip are our go to meals.

Since we rarely look for restaurants that do or do not serve alcohol, I can't answer for this particular Elmer's. I do know several do have alcohol available in their Lounges.
