I love you Elk, but your appetizers are boring...

Dear Elk Owners: In the words of Bob Marley, "Lively up yourself". Chips and salsa - really? How many years has that BBQ chicken quesadilla been on the menu? I know you have the talent because often the specials are creative, interesting and delicious. Swimming Angel and pork marinated tacos... read more

We had the best chicken and mushroom soup here. We came because it was on our triple D list, (Guy Fieri's show), and the place was packed with pregame (Gonzaga) basketball fans, and the bar was also packed. Our server was very friendly, and we ended up with the soup because it was the special soup of the day and... More

Sometimes one gets really hungry and heads for the nearest fast food joint. That's why planning ahead takes not much time but leads to real treats. Then one compiles a list of favorite places no matter where they end up. When in Spokane, Elk is on of those. Located in a neighborhood called "Brown's Division" it is easy to find,... More

It's all about that Reuben. I don't even like sauerkraut all that much, but that sandwich was so, so good. The lamb sandwich was also really good, but the Reuben is how this place makes it happen. The BBQ quesadilla with onion dip was great too. About 10 beers on tap with more bottled makes for a solid beer selection.... More

Our server was fantastic...so friendly and his food choices for us were right on. We had a varied selection of soups and salads, and the best porter beer!

Just okay I guess. Kinda run down. Attentive and capable staff. Was looking for homemade food as a DDD location and the server did admit that my meal was provided by a food service and it tasted like it. Parking was poor.

We visited Elk Public House for the first time this past Saturday. The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed, and the service was friendly. In fact, the servers made us feel like long time regulars. I had the Cajun ravioli with lobster cream sauce. It was superb! My wife had the bulgogi tacos with quick kimchi and enjoyed them thoroughly. The... More

While visiting my son and grandchildren in Brown's Addition, I had time on my hands, due to work and school. I walked to 1931 West Pacific, and lo, a charming pub. I was killing time, and ordered only an appetizer and a draft beer. The service couldn't have been better if I had ordered the most expensive thing on the... More

We tried this out due to the DD&D reviews. The restaurant is located in an interesting area with Brownstones all around. The place was buzzing and we were happy just to get a table. All of our meals were tasty. The wait staff is a bit laid back, but sometimes that is a good thing. There was a guitar player... More

We come here every time we visit Spokane! We get very excited to go. I always order the same thing - grilled lamb sandwich. AWESOME! And we always get the chips and salsa appetizer. Their salsa is the best! The service has always been great and so is the atmosphere. I try to recommend this place to anyone going to... More
