Whether you're in the mood for a Prime Sirloin Filet or phenomenal sauteed dish, perfectly paired with one of the Inn's 15 selections of wines... or a pound of crispy chicken wings and a few of their 27 ice cold draft beers, you're always welcome at this neighborhood pub.
Established in 1974, The Elmwood Inn has an interesting, and not-so-conventional past. The building itself was built around 1890 next to a small apple orchard where the old Benfante's Hardware use to be. The building has changed hands many times over the years and was even a funeral home from 1955 to 1970.
Today the Elmwood Inn has an extensive menu including appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, quesadillas, main entrees and a late night appetizer menu. They offer a variety of on-tap or by bottle beer choices as well as several wine options. The Inn also has a royalty rewards program where you can earn points for purchases that add up to a free lunch.

PBA Event Reservation Payment Notice
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your incredible support in attending our events! We appreciate your enthusiasm and participation in our workshops, networking and community events.
In the past, the PBA has absorbed any expense for members who registered for events but were unable to attend for various reasons. Unfortunately the cost for holding events has increased and it has become necessary for us to change this practice. Going forward, the PBA will need to charge you for any reservation you are unable to fulfill unless we receive a cancellation notice 48 hours prior to the event. We are sensitive to the fact that last minute schedule challenge occur and we encourage you to send a substitute in your place if you find yourself unable to attend.
For all PBA meetings requiring reservations and a meeting fee, we have always extended a "pay at the door" option to our members and guests and will continue to do so.Recently, we added the option to pay by credit/debit card via PayPal on the PBA website. This option will continue to be available as well.
Again, thank you for your tremendous support! We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
