Fantastic find near Snowshoe

If you are a skier and go to Snowshoe you know your choices are limited in the village, and nothing seems to be within 2 hours of the resort. Elk River was recommended by a friend who stays there with his wife and raved about the restaurant. It did not disappoint. Charming environment and... read more

Great restaurant in West Virginia. We ate here over Valentine's Day weekend had a great time. The menu had lots of appetizer and entree options. I had the stuffed rainbow trout and it was amazing. The rest of my family had variations of steak and everyone seemed happy. For dessert we had the apple crumble with cranberry drizzle and it... More

Great Restaurant in a rustic Inn. I ate here twice with friends over the new years weekend. Food is excellent. The first night we shared a smoked trout appetizer. I had a braised short rib Osso Buco that fell off the bone. Slow cooked and tender - full of flavour. My wife ate the chicken - raised on a nearby... More

I always ask to go here for my birthday and this year we actually got there without being in a snow storm. They have changed the menu just a tad and the wonderful trout is still on the menu. The Lobster Bisque was incredible; the trout most and delicious; the filet mignon the best my husband says he ever had.... More

The food at Elk River is excellent, as is the atmosphere. We showed up without reservations on a Saturday and they were more than happy to accommodate my family. Elk River is definitely at the top of the short list for places to dine on our next visit to the area.

I've stayed here over the years, I've eaten at the restaurant several times and have previously loved the experience. This time the experience was truly disappointing. I think the staff tries very hard to make things work, but we were seated for our 8:00 reservation (made 2 days previously) after 8:30. I couldn't say for certain, but if sure LOOKED... More

We spent the weekend at Snowshoe Mountain Resort and one of my son's co-workers recommended we have dinner at the Elk River Inn. It was wonderful. It is a rustic and cosy restaurant that really fits the area. We had the Smoked Trout Spread and the Clams Rockefeller. Both excellent. My son really enjoyed the stuffed trout while my wife... More

The full breakfast included in the lodging was a welcome surprise. Dinner was good but service was slow and price was on the high end.... A great way to start the day, hot delicious food and a lady who I regret that I did not get her name doing the cooking of breakfast......was awesome, she learned to cook from a... More

We went to this place after reading good reviews. Unfortunately my experience was vastly different. In short - food was mostly ok, but extremely overpriced for what it is, and service was just terrible. Terrible to make it to the top of my black list this year. The full report: We were staying near Snowshoe for a perfect summer getaway... More

I stayed here for 3 days/2nights during a women's mountain bike weekend and my expectations were surpassed. I stayed in the Farmhouse with others in my group and found it a little rustic, but very comfortable. Clean towels and beds every night, very quiet location, and enough bathrooms to keep us all clean and not fighting for showers. The food... More
