The staff did a great job and the food was incredible - thanks again
We always enjoyed the food at Lake Elmo. The service was good.
Fantastic food and a great place to go for a special occasion. Highly recommend!
We took my mom there for an early Mother’s Day dinner. The food and service wasn’t the same as we had in the past. Normally, we receive top notch service when we go there but tonight we felt rushed and were put in a noisy area. I was disappointed with the dinning experience. I am not sure if a return visit will be in the future.
This restaurant never disappoints. The service, the ambience and the food… All five star. Thank you.
Delicious food, excellent service, super friendly staff!
Server was so wonderful she wasn’t too busy to offer help to a handicap guest & then another male employee jumped in to assist on the way back to the table. Every bit of our experience was wonderful. Thank you for a memorable visit.
So nice that Lake Elmo Inn is open again! We were there for a birthday and the staff was so nice to let us sit at the table undisturbed for a while so we could visit.
Scallops and Pasta were exception. Had to knock off one star for one group members Halibut Cheeks were lacking in taste. The other four in our group loved their entrees.
As always, service and atmosphere were impeccable.
We enjoyed ourselves quite nicely.
Lake Elmo Inn is a special place for any occasion!
The food is fantastic and the service is some of the best. My only problem is I ordered mojito and it was served in a surly beer glass. Should have been served in a different glass other than a beer glass.
rib eye was a little thin for my liking. seemed to be a bit over priced compared to before. I did put down we were celebrating a retirement but no one mentioned anything about that.
We have always loved Lake Elmo Inn and we will go back. Unfortunately the chef was not up to par on our visit. My husband had the special dinner of halibut, when his dinner arrived the plate looked like a pile of garbage. I use that descprition as my mother worked in food service her whole career and that would have been her reply. Sorry there was no eye appeal. Their prices have gone up more than I expected. Hopefully this represents their staff being paid $15.00 an hour. We will be back. We would not judge Lake Elmo Inn because of one unfortunate experience.
The four course brunch is awesome. Plenty of choices, great tasting and served in a timely manner. Can’t say enough good about the whole experience, enjoyed more than the serve yourself buffet.
Always a wonderful experience at Lake Elmo Inn. Wonderful food and dining.
We were looking forward to celebrating our daughter's Birthday at the Lake Elmo Inn and the quality and the presentation of the food and the wait service exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Lake Elmo Inn for any special occasion.
Excellent service & delicious food! I highly recommend the Sunday brunch
It would have been perfect if 2 of our party hadn’t been served nuts repeatedly even after telling staff of their nut allergies.
However disregarding the nut issue, it was fantastic!
Wait staff was top notch. Food was amazing, as usual!
Lake Elmo Inn is consistently a wonderful dining experience. Food, service, and ambiance are all among best the Twin Cities has to offer.
Amazing as always! Sorbet palette cleanser and warm hand towels. Beautiful desserts to dream about and fresh, delicious entrees. Classic dishes and on-trend dishes. Something for everyone!
We view Lake Elmo Inn as the best restaurant in MN. Always excellent food, service, atmoshere.
It's fairly expensive for the food you get - the food is good but I'd expect those prices at a better restaurant in Mpls or St. Paul. Waitress was okay except for after we got our food - came by once - then we said we wanted dessert and it took a while to get the tray brought to choose off of - then waited a bit for the check. I'd still recommend with the caveat that they will pay a high price for what they get.
The tornado medallions were perfectly prepared along with a beautiful vegetable medley. The bone-in rib eye was also excellent. Staff was super nice and everyone did a great job even with COVID restrictions.
We were disappointed in how we were rushed through our allotted time which was evidently one hour. Our reservation was at 5:15 and we were OUT at 6:15. This has not happened before and has not occurred to me at lunch. Vegetables of the day had no flavor and could have been cooked a bit longer.
The food was excellent as was the ambience. However it seems there was not enough staff the end of our meal we had to wait quite some time plus waited for our bill but it was because the waitress was very busy and it was obvious she had too many tables. We are always happy with the Lake Elmo Inn.
Our server, Beth, was outstanding. She seamlessly made the evening flow. Want her at our table next time we dine.
EVERYTHING WE EXPERIENCED AT THE ELMO INN WAS FIRST CLASS. THE FOOD WAS GREAT, THE SERVICE WAS GREAT AND THEY HAVE LITTLE TOUCHES THAT MAKE A DINING EXPERIENCE MORE ENJOYABLE.
Wonderfully crafted cocktails, all the appetizers & entrees were delicious (as always)! We are repeat customers!
It’s always enjoyable when we go to Lake Elmo Inn! We’ve been going there since before we were married 36 years ago. The food selections, service and ambiance are always top-notch.
Returning to the Inn after several months absence was a great experience, just as we remembered from before. It was our anniversary and we could not have enjoyed it more than we did. Food. service and the careful attention to details made for a wonderful evening. Thanks very much!
Good service and food as always from before Covid 19.
Always a great dining experience at The Lake Elmo Inn! So happy to have them open for business once again.
Staff-Excellent, as always. Especially Erik.
Cajun pork chops have been under seasoned and not as moist the last two times.
Prior 10 times, became my favorite meal. Impeccably seasoned, super moist.
Now, such a disappointment, won’t order again.
Our first time back in a restaurant since March 2020. What a nice way to start living our lives again.
Our all time favorite special occasion destination for over 30 years!! Great atmosphere, service and quality food always.
Delicious as always! Great service and wine was delicious as well.
The shrimp on the steaks were dry. Steaks good. Service good. Didn’t appreciate baby at table next to us. Loves babies but not out our for dinner.
Great meal! Great experience. Made a special occasion very special! Thanks.
Fantastic brunch! Bottomless champagne, wide selection of food to chose from generous portions and all delicious. Service was fantastic. Put this place on your brunch list!
