Cranston Davenport, Owner

Welcome to our restaurant! This is a fulfillment of a long time goal for Maggie and I, we have planned for years to open our own restaurant even before I began working in the restaurant business. We have heard so many people say "I would love to open a restaurant", well we did.

While my background is varied, I spent many years in Printing and Graphics as well as Network Administration and later followed my calling to ministry as an ordained minister, being with and serving people is at the heart of what we are about. 

We have 3 children between us, 2 sons (both  named Michael) and a daughter Eliza, if you stop by you probably will see her mooching another free meal! Our oldest Michael is lives in Georgia and works fo Starbucks while trying to finish his degree, our middle child is in the Army and is an EOD specialist assigned to the Rangers, his frst deployment will be in March. Our daughter is a graduate student at Milligan college here in Johnson City and is getting married in May.

Maggie is a retired flight attendant from Delta Air Lines and is the real boss here at The Elms! She is the one that keeps me in line and makes you feel like you are eating in our home. She studied opera at a younger age and has a tremendous voice and has been actively invloved in theatre much of her life.

We look forward to hearing your life stories, come by and share with us and thank you for visiting our site!
