I have been here a couple of times the past couple of months and both times I got the sloppy joes with cheese and bacon. It was good both times.

If you are ever in the area, you must try EPH! There are options for anyone and beer selection is great too!!!

I've visited several times at different hours of the day and have never been disappointed. The food is great, the staff is great and $1 desserts! Highly recommend!

Overall a good meal with good service. The burger and Mac & Cheese were very good...the cheese curds were a tad overcooked and I am surprised they'd serve a Fat Tire in a can. Solid experience. Would we go back. Yes.

Meeting for business, great surprise with space on back and attendance, place was packed. Family friendly atmosphere. Following waitress recommendation ordered a Burger Saltimbocca and will never forget. It was simply delicious!!! A must in that beautiful city.

From the street, Elgin Public House looks like a little store front shop, but once you step through the doors, you discover a very large and fun atmosphere. Great selection of menu items! Everyone in our group had something different and everyone enjoyed their meal.
