This is my favorite restaurant. The food is ALWAYS top notch and the staff is wonderful. If you have not tried this place, it’s a total must!!
We have never had a bad meal or experience. My only comment would be not all servers are as familiar on gluten free options as others. I have celiac disease and for those that are it's greatly appreciated!!!
The service was good. Over all food was good. I had the salmon and it was good but extremely salty. My date had the prime rib and it was suberb. Everything else was great
Table service was slow. Well below the great service we had from Sue last weekend in the veranda room.
As usual, excellent service and food! A classic that never goes out of style.
Fantastic! From check in to service to the food...everything was great! Would definitely go back. Thank you!
We enjoyed the leisurely experience with excellent food.
My husband and I went there for a "date night". The food, the service and the ambiance all contributed to a wonderful experience.
Never get a bad meal or poor service at the Lake Almo!
first time having brunch, and just like the dinner experience it was outstanding, we will be back.
Felt comfortable eating inside because of all their careful prep from entry to social distancing of tables. We had a wonderful dinner experience. Thanks to all the staff & the chief in particular.
Service was excellent! We felt like our server went an extra mile to make us feel special on our anniversary.
A minor fix to a steaks doneness was handled graciously and quickly.
We will definitely return many times again!
We treated ourselves to steak and lobster. It was wonderful. Service and atmosphere was great.
This is one of our favorite places to eat and they did not disappoint!
We missed your buffet but enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at The Inn with delicious sunnies and ribs and fabulous wild rice. Complementary champagne was a nice touch!
We got seated in a perfect little romantic table. From the hostess to our server, they were attentive and so sweet. Able to answer all my questions & so accommodating if I would have happened to not like something, which the food was amazing! Both my husband and I had steaks & they were melt in your mouth. We can’t wait to do a date night again here very soon!!!
All around a great dining experience!
Excellent service from all staff (maitre'd, server, bus person)
Personal touch was having the owner John stop by to check on us and also the other diners.
Recommend Lake Elmo Inn for dining out any time.
Server was great she just was so busy she was almost running I think she had tables in too many areas probably because they had people spread out because of the Covid. We felt bad for her we were patient and understanding but not everyone would be. As always great food and special place for occasions.
Great tasting food! The server was very friendly and helpful!
Best restaurant in the Twin Cities! The inn is high quality food .
We were celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary and wanted a special experience. When we mentioned our anniversary, we appreciated that we received a complementary flute of champagne. We also appreciated that your entrees include potato, vegetable and roll, something fine dining restaurants are not doing any more. And the chocolate dipped strawberry was special. Thank you!
You can't go wrong w/Lake Elmo Inn!!!
Excellent food and service as usual. Nice variety, the prawns were cocked perfectly and the filet mignon was joy ice an tasty. We are regulars therefore we recommend the restaurant to anyone who feels like experiencing a 4 course meal.
Enjoyed a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary. Desert was the highlight of the meal
Our first time visiting since the onset of the pandemic virus. Service was exceptional, and the food outstanding. We had a wonderful visit.
Lake Elmo Inn always does a great job. The service and food quality are excellent.
Celebrated our anniversary and as always, Lake Elmo Inn was great. I had the Panko Crusted Walleye. It tasted like fresh-caught. My husband had tenderloin. Very tender and wonderful flavor.
The food was excellent and the staff made a point to be attentive.
. Great social distancing. We felt very comfortable and would definitely eat there again.
Enjoyed the new style Sunday Brunch. I found the experience wonderful! I was able to enjoy wonderful menu options. Anything I could not finish, was put in a to-go box! No standing in line at the buffet!!!! I will definitely be back!!! The price has increased, but it is still worth it!! Remember we are trying to get out and support our local businesses! Also I felt very safe in the restaurant! Tables are spaced and all servers are in mask! Give it a try!!!
Loved it. Due to Covid-19 they have a new way of doing Sunday Buffet. You have 4 courses but you choose from a nice selection in each course. You are served all food at the table. Covid guidelinesxwere followed. Felt very safe. Food was great. Left full and was able to take leftovers home. I actually liked this better than the pre-covid buffet.
It was phenomenal. My boyfriend and I can't wait to go back.
We celebrated my birthday at the Lake Elmo Inn. The food and service were outstanding. We transitioned to the bar after dinner and so enjoyed catching up with everyone. Best day ever!
Positively delicious. I had the sirloin while my husband had the sunnies. We've had alot of mediocre meals lately so it was refreshing to have something so wonderful. The Creme Brulee was out of this world.
Came for the sunnies. Left full and satisfied! One of our favorite local restaurants.
Delicious food, great staff and service. Margaritas Were fantastic
The only real complaint I have is that it was pretty cool inside. The AC could have been turned down a notch. And the shrimp in my prawn and pasta were a little tough.
Even though seating is limited due to the pandemic, service was excellent, menu was interesting, food was great.
The lunch was delicious (best walleye on the East Side of St Paul) and wait staff was very attentive. We ate on the porch area and it needed some freshening up but the temperature was very comfortable.
