“Simply Wonderful!”

Elk Mountain Resort Restaurant
Ranked #7 of 17 Restaurants in Stanley
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Description: This is listed as an RV resort, but I notice most of the reviews aren't about the park -- they are about the restaurant. After dining here this weekend, I think it deserves a place among restaurants as well (it was very good).

“Simply Wonderful!”
Reviewed November 23, 2010

This restaurant is worth going to if you find yourself in Stanely. Don't believe me? Check out the reviews for Elk Mountain in the RV section - most people have reviewed how great this restaurant is!

This is a few miles west of Stanley, but it's worth the short drive to get there. It looks quaint on the outside, but the outside is surprisingly large, very clean, and most important of all, inviting. There are some nice restaurants in Stanley, but most are open only for breakfast/lunch or lunch/dinner. This is an honest to goodness 3 meals a days restaurant for every taste. The prices are good, and the food is better.

The ribs! Oh my gosh! Who'd have thought the BBQ ribs would be the best I've had in a long time - and in Stanley, Idaho! You can choose your side dishes, and I've found them to be just as tasty. My companion ordered a "smaller" steak, and she couldn't finish it (it tasted great, but was HUGE). The salad bar is the best (only?) in town. Complimentary ice tea and coffee are available - yes, complimentary - as well as your other favorite drinks for purchase. The service is the best in Stanley. Even during a busy meal, we've always been made to feel welcome and important.

Like most of Stanley, this restaurant operates seasonally. I believe it's open from May to October, give or take. Take advantage of the prices, portions, and quallity of the food!

“REALLY good”
Reviewed November 12, 2010

The BBQ is the house specialty and it's wonderful. A full rack of ribs is the price of half in most resturants. The sides served with the entree make a huge meal at a very low price. And is it good!!!! Missed prime rib night, but bet it's great.
BUT - there's more. Save room for apple pie or any of their other truly homemade pies. True homemade resturant pie is rare, but this place has it.
So good, we came back for breakfast which was equally great. Bisquits and gravy.
Not fancy, but very clean. Woodsy, cozy. Friendly folks. Have interesting alcoholic beverage service. The price quoted is a dinner with beer/wine and pie. You can eat for much less.
