First time going there. Very nice rustic atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food. Will be going back in the future.
The food was great the service was spot on. Expensive but hey, what isn’t these days?
Great place to see the Alpine Glow. Very beautiful setting.
Wonderful atmosphere for dinner - rustic log cabin overlooking Priest Lake with a center large rock fireplace. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Loved the huckleberry drinks!
we had a wonderful dinner better , the food was better than.we had remembered, the mixed drinks were good actually made right. And the service was spot on. Everything was perfect, we even sat by the fireplace. perfect dinner

Wait service,Hospitality, staff friendly, maintenance, housekeeping. They all make you feel like your at home ! A HUGE applaud to the General Management for a Job well done 👍 Sincerely Ted&Cheryl Baldwin
Our meal was fantastic. Great way to kick off the new year
The dinner and service was amazing! We had a group of six and everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server was attentive, but also gave us time to visit.
These days, it’s hard to find good old log cabins with wood burning fireplaces. These are wonderful cabins, very clean and well appointed. Then add Priest Lake to the mix and you have an excellent resort location. The food at the lodge is top notch.
Had an amazing dinner at Elkins. They followed Covid protocols, provided great spaced tables such that we had a quiet romantic evening dinner. Our waiter was phenomenal and so was the food. Had the most amazing appetizer consisting of crab/cheese wontons. All staff members were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Elkins.
The people, setting, and meals at Elkins continues to be one of the more outstanding experiences for us who have traveled throughout the country. We celebrated our thirty-fifth anniversary at Elkins.
We sat at a table looking out to the water and mountains.. stunning we could see chimney rock so clearly.. wonderful two day adventure 😊
The food was wonderful! The halibut was perfectly done and so flavorful! We sent our compliments to the chef on everything: the steak, the halibut, the desserts. The service is excellent, too...highly recommend!
Food is amazing as always. Had the worst waitress who also seated us. I had reservations and she sat us right by door w/no view. She said other tables w/view were reserved (I had reserved also). Those other "reserved" tables NEVER got filled during our entire dining time. She got our appetizer wrong, never checked on us until end when we did need refills on drinks.
Best Tomahawk Steak i have ever had.
Beautiful view teamed with excellent food; how can you lose. I had the Copper River Salmon special which was delicious and cooked to perfection. My husband had the pistachio crusted chicken which he said was absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The food was absolutely wonderful!
We LOVE Elkins !!! Magical Lake Setting , casual rustic vibe , excellent for and service , creating a true resort get away dining experience . Truly can’t wait to eat here again !!!
Our server was great. Food was great. As expected.
Dinner was delicious. The atmosphere was lovely. We'll go again for sure.
We had a lovely dinner. However the price was a bit high for the quality of a couple of our entrees. Service was great and the atmosphere was fun and casual and very appealing.
Great service and food! Wonderful presentation
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!
