The Elm is a great neighborhood bar with amazing atmosphere. The woodwork is absolutely beautiful and the accents of the stain glass add to the classy but not stuffy interior. Erin took great care of us (even remembered my request for horseradish without having to be asked twice). The Pulled Pork is more Texas style cooked and then the red sauce added at the end, rather than Memphis style of being slow cooked in the sauce. Everyone seemed real happy and regular in the late afternoon. I'm glad I live in the neighborhood, as I felt like a regular immediately.
Nice old school College style sports bar. Heated patio for smoking if that??s your thing. I quit but still enjoy the smell, so I like the smokey aroma in the bar, but I could see how it might turn others off. Dan was friendly behind the bar, taking care of the patrons on a slow Tuesday night. Definitely a place I could see myself becoming a regular at.
As I walked in and Whodini 'Friends' was playing, I knew I was at the right place. I was just in for a quick bite right before the kitchen closed and they were happy to accommodate. Luckily, happy hour was finished when the kitchen closed, so I had 5 minutes to get my food and drink order in on time. Murphy the Bartender was happy to provide, and I was pleasantly surprised to find cabbage and corned beef egg rolls on the appetizer menu! They definitely hit the spot and will bring me back for more soon.
I said I'd give them another chance, so I did for a quick. I was pleasantly surprised to find the same bartender/server that was previously unattentive and she was great! Very accommodating and kept my coffee full. The hummus platter hit the spot and I'll definitely be back to an MMA match soon.
Great neighborhood bar & restaurant. E-Dubbs took great care of us even when it was slow in the middle of the afternoon. Great selection of tacos and some good drink specials too. Not authentic mexican, but rather creative and flavorful tex-mex americano style. I would definitely recommend this place to others and I will be back soon.
