    They were still serving the “shoulder” menu, which was an abbreviated version. Unfortunately they have removed two of our favorites from their menu….French onion soup, and crispy Brussels sprouts. They also no longer serve their sour dough bread, nor any bread. So while the food was solid, they have unfortunately removed some excellent items from their menu for the foreseeable future. Bad deal……🥺

    We were here during “offseason” & it was incredible. I can’t imagine how good it is during regular high season.

    Although it was shoulder season and the menu was smaller we had an amazing dinner here. The oysters were delicious and the onion rings were amazing as our appetizers. My husband got the steak tartare and enjoyed it immensely. My center ribeye was perfectly cooked black and blue, which many places don’t do very well if they even do at all. Amazing and great job Elk!

    Unfortunately we had an off night. I ended up sick from the oysters, the food was overcooked and over salted.

    Great experience as a first time visitor. Rachel was our server for a group of 9 and handled it like a pro. Food and drinks came out at perfect times and were all wonderful. Got one of every steak and they were all equally delicious. Great salad and apps. Kitchen splitting salad is a nice touch. Highly recommend!

    It’s a nice place but a bit pricey. Our steak was very good. My wedge salad was big enough for 2 people. Sides were good and definitely large enough for 3-4 people. We did get a surprise when the check arrived and had a 6% affordable housing fee. Overall; everyone was happy with their food and we will return.
