We loved everything about Elkins! It is a wonderful atmosphere right on the lake. All of the waiters & waitresses were friendly & professional. Our food was hot, delicious & good proportions. The cocktails in the bar were made well and looked beautiful. Loved all of the huckleberry choices! Thank you for the great experience! Our friends were visiting from Texas & loved it.

Great location on Priest Lake. The setting was matched by the food, which was matched by the service. It is worth the drive to get to this location. We enjoyed everything about our meal. Would highly recommend Elkins Resort.

Made a reservation for a birthday dinner. Our waiter was so professional, friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.
I ordered Lobster special and my husband ordered the salmon special.
My lobster tails and risotto was incredible. I would drive back to Elkins just for that dinner again.
Husband loved his salmon also!
We ordered several different things over the week that we were there. Everything was awesome. No complaints here!

Uncomfortable. Wait staff requires better training. PLEASE READ BEFORE CONSIDERING ELKINS: Could hear two types of music going at once...one type in the dining area, and something that sounded like techno in the bar. Wait staff not transparent with pricing on specials or what comes with meals. Also not consistent with verbiage. Food delivered was referred to as something different than we ordered. Black crusty bits on white wine glass. Gritty bites (dirt?) in mashed potatoes. Halibut well seasoned, but very dry. Food mostly tasted good beyond that. Our waitress never checked during our meal to see how it was. Charged a “resort fee”?! Have not seen that at any other resort restaurant.

Thank you Elkins for a wonderful anniversary dinner. We had great service with Sam outside and Bradley inside. The food was outstanding, we had the Lamb Special and the Copper River Salmon special.
Although masks were not worn by the staff or patrons. The tables were socially distanced and protocols appeared to be followed. In fact our server even push a table away from us when setting for a larger party
With so many places not adhering to protocols, this was appreciated.
Thank you

I love Elkins! Their Food, their Service, their Hospitatlity and Ambience are top notch. The patina on the old logs give it the Old Lodge feel and double sided fireplace fully ablaze makes it very comfy/cozy in the Winter.

The Double Lobster Tails on Risotto Special for Valentines Day was beautifully presented, sweet and tender and my Wife had the fall off the bone, tender and sooo flavorful Short Ribs on Rice. And to top it all off, we shared the Dessert Special, Bananas Foster over a fresh Belgian waffle...wow!

Our Server was friendly and did an outstanding job of timing it all perfectly.

The Wine list by the Bottle is extensive with many good ($$) and great ($$$) Vineyards represented, even the wines by the glass are well represented.

We are very fortunate to live close to Priest Lake and this outstanding old Resort on the Lake.

Pretty good. One of the halibut dinners was overcooked. Son wanted steak caesar and we were charged for steak dinner and full size salad; would have been nice to know what we were going to pay for especially when we didn’t get the accompaniments that came w entree. Margarita was odd; tasted mostly like booze but wo the buzz.
Chicken picatta was yummy. Desserts were through the roof!

Elkins never disappoints. We have been coming for years. We were a bit early, 15 minutes, and were promptly seated. Service was seamless. The menu has something for everyone - vegetarian to meat eater. The meals were well prepared and presented. Don't pass up the huckleberry crisp. Can't wait for the next opportunity.
