Our story begins in the late 1940’s when a small bar known as Walt’s Bar opened up. Changing its name in the mid 1950’s to The Frolic Gardens, our restaurant soon became a neighborhood favorite! With some modern updates and a fun name change, The Elbow Room opened up in 1995, making us the full service eclectic bar we are today! Comfortably nestled in Grand Rapids, Michigan, The Elbow Room Bar and Grill offers top quality pub meals at a reasonable price in a casual and inviting atmosphere. By offering a welcoming and friendly environment, The Elbow Room is the perfect place to bring a group of friends for dinner or drinks. We operate our restaurant with integrity and respect, and we always do it in a personal and fun way! With an emphasis on great food and great fun, you will never walk away disappointed when you dine with us at The Elbow Room!
