You can’t beat the view at Elkins! The food is fabulous ! Been coming here for over 35 years! Never have been disappointed! It’s a must when your at Priest lake! Treat yourself !!
Waitress was not very friendly took forever getting order and dessert
Was very disappointed
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.
The food was amazing. Highly recommend to anyone looking to have me great food and enjoy the view of the lake!!
They have the formula and it’s working.
The food is exceptional but the staff is even better. Collin is amazing!
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.
We reliably have excellent meals here every summer. The best food in the lake with the most friendly and competent service. Hannah was our server and she was wonderful. The new asst manager Collin was very accommodating and solicitous.
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.
Excellent in every way. Huckleberry crisp is indescribable, as is everything I’ve eaten there.
First meal in a restaurant since February! Food was perfectly prepared, the presentation was gorgeous. Staff is all friendly. Doing an excellent job with hand sanitizer on the table, cleaning and distancing. Wonderful experience. Our server was great - Brad.
Food, service by Brad,and atmosphere was over the top and most enjoyable. Can't wait to come back!
Staff and food was fantastic. Views can't be beat. Perfect Anniversary.
Great scenic dining experience. Can’t wait to go back for lunch outside on a nice day.
Wonderful service and food. We had a table with a great view of the lake. Beautiful! Food was pricey but delicious!
We had a great dinner with an amazing view of Priest Lake. The food was excellent and very good service, as always. We've been there a few times before and will certainly plan to go back.
The food was amazing and service awesome, you cannot beat the views
Great food and great service! We love it at Elkien’s!
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.
Food was excellent
Nice atmosphere view of the lake
Friendly efficient staff
Food and service are awesome! Right on the lake. During the summer they have a deck and for the fall,winter & spring months sit by the fire and enjoy the food and lake
Anniversary dinner was outstanding
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!
We LOVE Elkins and can’t wait to go back. Food and ambiance is AMAZING!!!
I love Elkins ambience and the food is always delicious and unique. It does get noisy when busy but it’s still worth dining there!
Miso Salmon was reliably excellent and swordfish special was outstanding. Tyler was personable and provided attentive service.
BEST customer service and delicious food. Highly recommend for all points.
Family and friends dinner on vacation
Out waiter Colin was wonderful. Fun and efficient. The manager Cricket was wonderful, accommodating our large party of 11 on a busy Saturday night.
Excellent food and customer service! A wonderful evening out!
The waiter was outstanding and the various entres our party of 4 had, were superb!
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.
I highly recommend their New York strip with pepper gravy.
We went to Mother’s Day brunch & the food was excellent. The staff in the buffet were super busy, but still very kind.
Elkin's honored our request for a table with a view of the lake, best view in the restaurant. The food was fantastic, especially the huckleberry crepes and omelets. The staff was most friendly.
The food. Oh the food.
You have beaten any and all on the lake.
Fantastic service. The server was a joy .
Fabulous food. Great service. Would give our meal 5 stars. Will definitely be back. The morrel mushrooms were so good as well as the veal, salmon, halibut, and seafood pasta. Our party of 8 was impressed.
Elkins resort as a whole is awesome!
We visited for holiday from New Braunfels Texas
And loved it. We’ll be back!
So glad you found us! We look forward to your return.
