Reviews for Elsies Tavern

Deep dive into grungy pub life. Only beer and wine served here. Super chill vibe. Dark inheritor fully decorated from thrift store treasures. Smoking section in back patio. Younger (millennial aged) crowd. Nice for a quick drink but unless you plan to live in the area and frequent it, not a necessary stop.

Bottom Line: A great little bar I CANNOT believe that I have never been to this place especially since I grew up in this town. I love everything about this place; engine block coffee table, Cagiva gas tank in the rafters, lost of comfy places to sit, patio in the front and the back....the bar tender was super friendly and the people there were cool... and its got Pac Man! Loved the Boont Amber too. Check out this spot if you havent
