I had drinks and snacks each time I have visited the Elbow Room. I sat at the bar and food service was good, bar service was excellent and I felt "at home" even on my first visit

Daniel Lambert (1770 to 1809) was one of the world’s all time great girths. Tipping the scales at a svelte 737 pounds, Lambert boasted a belly 92 inches around (nearly 8 feet)! What a waist!Some people just have a leg up on the competition. This candid sketch unveils the secret to the quick elbow room service: our servers have more legs (and nothing beats a trio of legs).If you enjoyed us, Introduce us to a friend.
