Nice place to meet for an after work happy hour. Good prices on appetizers and a fun place to bowl if you're interested.

I stop in on a fairly regular basis for lunch in the cafe portion of Elsie's. Their "mom-&-pop" cafe food is downright good!

In townvisiting family. We called ahead for reservation to seat nine of us on a Friday nite. No problem. Good food, turned out to be fish fry nite. Everyone full, including the teenaged boys! Place was clean. Service was attentive and fun. Menu had plenty of choices, tho I admit my fish fry hit it big with me.

Elsie's Restaurant Bar and Bowling Center? Yup! You must go there to be amazed at how the food tastes and is presented. Pretzels to begin? Yes, please. I have never had anything off the menu that I didn't like. The wait staff is quite attentive; the food arrives pretty quickly; and you never feel rushed. Have been here on many... More

Tried their German potato pancakes. Gross under cooked, tasteless mess. Server was totally unattentive. Never offered refill for beverages. Generally a good place, last 2 breakfasts marginal at best.

Hadn't been here in many years. Strong service and surroundings with very good food. The bowling alley is an added form of entertainment. We just drank and watched. Very fun day.

Visited Elsie's for the first time with friends and had a very enjoyable dinner. They have a wide ranging menu and very reasonable prices. Even though we were there on a busy Saturday night, the service was excellent. A friend told me that a new chef signed on several months ago and the food has really improved since. This is... More
