I visited Elbow Room for the first time last week. I understand that they had recently moved to this new location on Walnut Street, but since I had never been to the old one before, I can't really make a comparison, although I did think the new location was pretty spacious and nice.
I was with a large group, and Elbow Room was very accommodating about that. While waiting for everyone to show up, I perused their extensive beverage selection and ordered an Excelsior Sirah. As for menu options, the Don Ho Burger, which comes with a teriyaki barbecue sauce, pineapples, and Swiss cheese sounded really interesting, but I am a bit picky about the source of my ground beef, so even though I was craving a beef burger, I went with the salmon option instead.

And I did not regret it. The salmon was delicious. The burger was simple, as in not terribly complex in flavor, but the combination of ingredients just worked well together. I also paid the extra $1.50 to upgrade to the sweet potato fries which were also tasty, if a bit cold.
Admittedly, some in the group were not as impressed with their food. However, the consensus seems to be that Elbow Room makes a good salmon, as everyone who had salmon as part of their dish had good things to say about it.
