“Came highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

When talking to the locals this place came highly recommended. It was one of the busier venues we visited and I can see why. Good deals on food and drink. Pub atmosphere with live sports. Very popular with both the locals and tourists. Had a chicken sandwich with two very generous sides and my boyfriend raved about the steak sandwich. Would go back, no doubt about it.

“A gem of a place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

get along three! This was my favorite spot for meeting friends for lunch and popping up to the roof in the summer to chill with a beer. Don't know if they still do the Elk nachos but they were awesome with beers and icehockey! Keep it up guys!!

“Never disappoints!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

I have been to the Elk a number of times over the years, and it never disappoints!

Great atmosphere, and great beers. It is the place to go to watch a game!

The food is phenomenal, and I am a fan of their tomato soup and Elk and Bison burgers.

As I mentioned, I have been here like 100 times, and I have always been served well. The food has always been top. I have never left hungry or disappointed with either quality or service.

“Great pub and eatry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is a great pub that always has some sport playing and great food. The only sad thing I can say is they changed up there meat platter to something less epic. Don’t let this stop you from stopping in to eat, drink and enjoy the atmosphere... our even just people watch from the windows at the passer byers.
