What a fun destination for dining, of course the salt and pepper shakers are the attraction. You can even purchase the shakers on your table. Food was generous, chicken salad full of chicken, and salmon served with wild rice and vegetable medley was good. Reuben sandwich filled with lean corned beer but bread wasn't sturdy enough to eat as a sandwich so used knife and fork. A killer display of desserts, we opted for carrot cake with three forks. You must experience the Inn it's a bit of Americana.

Have been here before but discovered that Monday night is senior night and 25% off any entree for seniors. The food here is always excellent. We had a fun waitress and also there are some extras here that I think are a very nice touch. ie. sorbet palate cleanser before the entree and chocolate covered strawberries at the end of the meal. I will be back now more often on Monday nights.

Hats off to Bartender Curtis - his memory, attentivnes, approach, & attention-to-detail result in a smooth, well-run & thoroughly enjoyable Bar Scene!

Have ALWAYS had excellant cocktails, appetizers, meals, & desserts @ Lake Elmo Inn!
NOTE: Dining Rooms are more quite. There is Valet Parking, and those Valet Attendents take excellant care of your vehicles.

Everything was delicious. Waitress did not know items on the dessert tray. We pointed to the one we selected and she brought out something different BECAUSE it was the name of what she had told us our selection was named. Finally got what we wanted

We had a lovely evening at the Lake Elmo Inn. Our server, Mo, was very attentive. My pork chops were outstanding! My date was a little disappointed with his Jambalaya. Even though we're half way through January, the Christmas decorations were still up and looked beautiful. We were most appreciative that we were given a 25% off coupon to bring us back there in February!
