Had a great time, spent two days and ate all meals in house, just wish you'd add Clamato Juice to the bar, I prefer it in my Bloody Mary's with Tequila. Other then that everything , along with the service was great..

Beautiful restaurant in a cool location. Food was just okay and came out cold and 45 minutes after we ordered so it was probably sitting out even though they weren’t super crowded or busy. Waitress rarely checked in and our drinks weren’t refilled. Was really excited to check out a McMenamins for the first time but probably won’t be back on my own volition as the cost wasn’t worth the experience.

One of us has a gluten intolerance and we were assisted with our menu options. Wait staff very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Since the county went back to phase 2 we were glad we made a reservation in advance as it was a very busy weekend.

My steak was raw, which of course I am too nervous to complain about because who knows what would happen to my food behind closed doors. We just will not revisit.

We were there celebrating my husband’s birthday. He loves McMenamins so we had to try out all of the bars and restaurants that were open. Pleasantly surprised with the food which has tended to be the same at all of their establishments. Still took a while to get the food considering how quiet it was.

we've eaten at several of this groups restaurants and they have all been great. they usually re-purpose unique buildings, convent, church, elks club, etc. and add their own brand of fun interesting, unique decor. at elk temple, the food was quite good and the service was excellent. the view was great, the area interesting. parking was a little scarce but maybe we just didn't know where to look. definitely worth going to.

We have enjoyed several of the McMenamins hotels and restaurants in other locations and were happy when McMenamins Elks Temple opened in our area. It did not disappoint!
The menu is not extensive but the food is good. The staff at this location was extra friendly and helpful.
