We ate two nights at the Pub. Pub is really not descriptive, I would say comfortable room, friendly bar and great service. The food is great. The best clam chowder I ever had. The room is a little small so conversations can be overheard. We sat next to a table of four locals, including Queenie (from Queenies roadhouse cafe -... More

Can do attitude of the staff overshadows the average at best nature of the food. Lights in dining rook were too bright. They should lower on a rheostat and use lighted candles on tables to improve atmosphere.

We stopped in after a long day on the road, for a drink, and wound up eating. What a great find. Service Was very good, although it was busy the waitress was very attentive. The food service was fast, we had mostly soup and appatizers.

Great atmosphere, good food, excellent service and friendly locals. What's not to like? Menu was good pub fare. I had the 'special' of fresh salmon which was possibly the best I have ever tasted.

We ate here this evening and we're very, very disappointed to say the least. My husband ordered the fried chicken @ $14.50 he received a quarter of a small chicken that consisted of a very small leg and thigh along with some fries. The chicken was supposed to be seasoned with secret house spices and deep fried, it was over... More

We've eaten at this pub several times, and it's small, but great. The veggie burger was delicious and they had some good local beers on top. No liquor, but that's true of everywhere in Elk.

I had serious doubts about eating here. It is one of two restaurants in Elk. The night we went there was one waitress and I envisioned it taking hours to eat. Also, while the menu does have pub food, it also has Mexican dishes, Italian dishes, burgers and salads. I always wonder about restaurants that seem to have an identity... More

The only place open on a Monday night when we stayed in Elk. Our Innkeeper recommended it and she was right. Friendly service and good homestyle honest cooking that we appreciated very much.
