Taprock converting to Elmer’s Restaurant

January 27th, 2014 at Mon, 27th, 2014 at 4:53 pm by Michelle Beahm

Poulsbo’s Taprock Northwest Grill has closed its doors, only to reopen them later this week as an Elmer’s Restaurant.

Taprock, off of Highway 305 in the Poulsbo Village, is owned by  Elmer’s Restaurants, Inc. The building will go under a slight remodel to give it the Elmer’s feel, and open under the new name on Feb. 1. A new menu will be among the changes.
A company representative said that the location will benefit from Elmers’ name, which has become known around the Northwest.

The North Kitsap Herald will publish a full article on the change over later this week.
