I was celebrating a special event with family members where we rang up a large tab. My father who was paying handed the server his credit card before looking at the itemized bill and received his copy to apply the tip and sign to leave. We left, thinking we had a pretty good experience. The food was tasty, although, we’re rather more accustomed to the dinner ambiance, so we missed some of the extras (unless you still receive the same services with lunch as with dinner and our new server didn’t offer the sorbet before entrees). Anyway, we made it home almost a 20 minute drive where I received a call from our young new server explaining she forgot to add the desserts to our tab and she needed permission to recharge our card for the mistake. I was shocked and asked to speak to a manager. First off, I am not the authorized user of the card charged for the original bill. Secondly, patrons are charged an additional 4% on theirs bills for the purposes of training staff. The manager told me this was a, “training opportunity” to call a customer back to charge them for a mistake that of the restaurant. If this is how Lake Elmo trains their staff, it would seem pointless to need to charge extra from the customer when ultimately they pay for the mistake anyway? And finally, to charge an additional charge without being present seems slightly unprofessional and a little bizarre. I was embarrassed this happened on a day that was quite exciting and great up until this strange phone call from a new server. The final experience truly overshadowed the whole meal.

The lunch menu has a nice selection of both light and heavy options. The service is relaxed and attentive and never feels rushed. For food quality and portion Lake Elmo Inn is highly affordable. Love Lake Elmo Inn and will return regularly.

The tiny lemon sorbet cones to cleanse the palate, plus a warm towel and chocolate-dipped strawberries at the end of dinner make this a wonderful dining experience!!!!!!

You pick 3 courses from a small list. Appy , breakfast item and entree. Dessert is 3 mini desserts that did not seem house made. Food and service were good. We could have eaten a bit more. Need reservations. $40 includes champagne and caramel roll. Not tax or tip. Parking was not great, had to park about 2 blocks away in the rain. Looks like construction going on where their lot is. Good for special occasion. A bit pricey for what you get we thought.

The food was just ok. Sampled most of the dishes on the menu, and nothing was really very special. The omelet, fried chicken, and sunfish were sadly underseasoned, the breakfast enchilada was mushy and had little flavor. And it took a long time. The desserts also were basically boring and not great. Pretty sad experience. We’ve had great food at LEI in the past but today they were just off.

We went to the Sunday brunch and the food was fabulous, although a bit too much, which they acknowledge by telling you they will provide a box for any leftovers you care to take home when you are ordering. In addition to champagne and a cinnamon roll for starts, you get your choice of appetizers, a breakfast selection, an entree and finally a dessert.
