the owners

Established in 1994

Greg Smith opened Elmer Lovejoy’s Bar & Grill in February, 1994. In its inception, the restaurant’s décor was a tribute to the history and accomplishments of early Laramie resident and inventor, Elmer Lovejoy. When Karen joined Greg in ownership in 1997, “Elmer’s” evolved into Lovejoy’s Bar & Grill, a favorite local hangout, sports bar and college hot spot. 

Greg began his restaurant career in 1985, when he purchased Café Jacques, a fine dining bistro in downtown Laramie. Karen spent several years in the marketing field before settling into the restaurant lifestyle. They opened Altitude Chophouse & Brewery, a successful downtown Laramie restaurant and microbrewery in 1999.

Karen and Greg believe in taking a hands-on approach to running their restaurants. They look forward to offering good food and a fun atmosphere to a friendly crowd at Lovejoy’s every day.
