“Living the Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2009

We were on our way to bike Snowshoe, and I had remembered a friend's tip about this inn. We stopped just to eat, and ended up staying. The food was wonderful, much better then anything we have had on the mountain. The trails were great- they have admittedly not been able to maintain all of them- but the extensive trails and the ability to come back to the inn for the post ride beer and dinner was priceless. The food was by far the most expensive part but I have defiantely spent more on less. The trails were great and all levels, the rooms were cozy and only made to sleep and shower in (we stayed in the lodge).
Try it, you will come back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2008

The Restaurant is one of several businesses that are part of the Elk River Touring Center. The dining room was very nice and service was excellent. We were there on a Thursday evening which is live entertainment night. The entertainers were obviously local and semi-amateur, but the music was very enjoyable and well presented. The restaurant was nearly full. Strangely, virtually everyone (including us) arrived very close to 6:30PM.

The menu includes some rather sophisticated entries. One would expect complex flavors that nicely compliment each other. In practice, the individual flavors were rather harsh and clashed with each other. There was nothing specifically wrong with any ingredient, but the combination did not result in a superior entrée. We speculated that the evening’s cook did not have the skill of the chef who developed the recipe. Prices are in line with other good restaurants, but a little high for our entries as prepared.

Of course, there is a shortage of fine restaurants in this area of remote West Virginia. Elk River may well be the best restaurant in the area but you may want to stick with the more conventional entries.

This is just a review for the restaurant portion of the Elk River Inn in WV. We loved it. It is probably one of the best restaurants in the area. We own at Snowshoe and have been trying to book a dinner reservation the last three trips there. We finally were able to get in and it is definitely worth the trip down the mountain.
The restaurant is small. The food is delicious. My husband had Black Grouper, my daughter and I had the filet mignon. The chef cooked rice for her since she did like mashed potatoes. We all had salads to start and I had the strawberry rubarb pie for dessert.
I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone traveling in the area or staying at the inn!
