I have eaten at the Elbow Room several times.
If you like a pub-like atmosphere you will like the Elbow Room. During the summer there is a small pleasant, enlosed outdoor area in the back.
The Elbow Room maintains a good standard with their food. It's not great and I don't dream about the food but I have enjoyed the it all the times I have visited. I particularly enjoyed the fried vegetable appetizer.
I was also once entertained by a singing and dancing waiter. While I do not think he is the norm it did give me a good chuckle when he gave my table a short song and dance routine.
