The dinners are very much over priced, but the breakfast and lunch prices are fine. The staff is friendly.

This restaurant never fails to amaze me!! We just ate 3 meals there and everything was delicious-great rockfish and scallops, all pared excellently with fresh local vegetables. We have just recently returned from a trip to Scandinavia and had eaten at some Michelin rated restaurants, and nothing beat what we ate at Elk River.

Our meal wasn't great but the potential was there...maybe I just ordered. the wrong thing. I'd definitely give it a second try. Had a great wine list and full service bar. Met fellow diners the next day and they raved about their meal, Plus yelp gives it good reviews. To find something this unique in this remote location was a... More

The atmosphere and food are exceptional! Quaint setting, friendly service, great menu. During my visit they had a bluegrass / folk band playing. Very ambient, not at all loud for a band playing inside. The prices are on the high side but for the food quality and atmosphere I'd place Elk River Inn as Pocahontas county's finest dining experience.

Love the food and atmosphere at Elk River - Thursday night international 3 course specials are well-prepared and reasonably priced. Local music on Thursday is a pleasant atmosphere.

We spend about two weeks per year in Snow Shoe, and when we are there we always go to Elk River. The menu is not overbearing, and has a nice selection of local game, from fish to quail. The atmosphere is perfect for those snow covered evenings.

We went to the Elk River Inn for a meal at the suggestion of the owner of the Morning Glory B&B, and glad we did. Turns out that a local jam session is held at the restaurant of Thursday nights and we enjoyed an evening of traditional country music together with a fine meal. The service was attentive and the...
