The Pot Belly Cafe at Elk Mountain Resort is THE place to eat on Saturday nights in Stanley. What a great place--from the fantastic service to the reasonably priced food to the awesome atmosphere--what a delight!
When you enter the restaurant, you are in one big room containing the dining tables, the front section of the kitchen on the left back side, the beverage area on the other back side where there is also the owners friends and family table. Behind that is the big pot belly stove for which the restaurant is named--very cozy and comfortable.
The primary waitress (one of the owners, perhaps?) is very welcoming and friendly and took our order immediately. While waiting the short time for our food, we were entertained by the number of locals, both adults and children, who were also eating there. When our perfectly cooked dinners did arrive, I bit into and tasted one of the best pieces of prime rib I have had in many years. The meat was definitely properly aged and, I am guessing, was probably locally raised.
The other menu items sounded really good, as well, but we did not have another night in Stanley and could not return this trip. We definitely will eat at the Pot Belly again next time we are in the area!
