Pleasant staff. Food was not as rich as the price. My chicken wings were freezer burnt and over cooked. My coworker had a Flatbread pizza with a burnt bottom. I'm wondering why this town has a problem with over cooking food. I don't get it. Is it just me?????

great place to go for dinner --they continually change the menu so that you are not eating the same food all the time and they have specials also at times

My girlfriends and I recently went to the Element for a girls night. It has been one of our favorite places to go. However the menu had changed since the last time we had been there. We gave it a try and each had different dishes, but none of us were very pleased. There also didn't seem to be as... More

It's always disappointing to hear that any of our patrons feel that their experience did not live up to expectation. We strive to continually improve on our product and offer fresh, trendy and interesting items. Since we opened almost a decade ago our menu has evolved and has changed multiple times a year, 22 times in fact. We understand that... More

Went here at last with a bachelorette party and they were amazing. The food was super yummy and good price, the drinks were a lil pricey but delicious and the staff were amazing! We showed up close to closing but they happily took us in and we still had great service that went beyond normal expectations. I will definitely go... More

Came in not knowing what to expect from a Club/Bar/Grill, left knowing this place has awesome food. I ordered the EBurger with fries and my beautiful date ordered the fish tacos inquiring about the beef chimichurry tacos. The server was very helpful and gave us some chimichurry sauce to try with our meals since we were very curious. Left full... More

My husband and I stopped by the Element last week for a quick bite and had just an incredible lunch. I had the Cobb Wedge, which is a lettuce salad with shrimp and a great dressing. My husband had their special Big Kahuna burger with a pork rind. Just awsome food and great service. We live in the area and... More

My wife and I drove to Castlegar from Spokane. We were advised by the fine folks at the Chamber of Commerce that we could have a fine lunch at Element. We did, indeed. Quick and attentive service, a fine meal, topped off by the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Wow! I recommend this place highly.

went there last night July 3 for supper, with being so hot inside was very comfortable and very relaxing. The waitress we had was super and answered any questions we had, then the food came and it was incredible and a really good amount and I found that the prices where reasonable. Ate there in May also and that night... More

We love the Element, the food/drinks and the staff amazing. We are here almost every Friday evening. The owner always stops to chat and make sure everything is to our satisfaction. He is willing to try out new menu items which can be a challenge in a small town. Always something new and delicous for dinner!
