Nothing to complain about. AYCE (all you can eat) crab legs for $40. I got the shrimp and crab leg steamer. It had corn and red potatoes in it and they were all delicious. I got a generous portion also. Would definitely return.

First time here. Had the shrimp and crab pot and it was great! Perfectly cooked and lots of food. VERY relaxed atmosphere which was exactly what we were looking for. Just got off the beach and came in. Great service. Will be back!

We eat here every time we come to the beach! It is amazing food and the people are great! We love to sit on the porch and listen to the music during dinner.

Elmo's is the best spot for locals - $10 grilled fish sandwiches, fried shrimp baskets ! Add to that 99 cent gumbo and cold local draft beer for a deal - who needs a view !!

Don't let the surroundings fool you! Elmo's is a good inexpensive place with pretty good food. Coleslaw is very good. Waitress (Morgan?) was excellent. If you are a local, ask for the reduced price menu. This is a good place to go if you don't...More
