Even before my wife and I were dating, our parents loved this place. It became our "special" place, after our first visit. The staff and owners are welcoming and efficient. The food is outstanding. Choosing the Lake Elmo Inn, for our wedding reception , was an easy choice and no one was disappointed.
Do your self a favor and go!

Went there yesterday for our 30 year wedding anniversary and the service and food was excellent as always!!!! Were seated in outdoor area as requested, given complimentary glass of champagne, started off with escargot stuffed morrell mushrooms which were awesome and plentiful. I had the sea bass with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, and my husband had walley and steak filet with the potatoes and asparagus also, of which we both took leftovers home. We were too full for desert but took two different choices home to eat later which were also wonderful!!!! Our server Pam was super nice and friendly and our busboy (didn't get his name) was also right there to refill our water/tea and remove plates, etc. We had not been here in about 5 years and forgot how great it was!!! We will definitely return here again - the food/price/service was AWESOME!!! Thanks Lake Elmo Inn for a GREAT dinner for our 30 year anniversary!!! Mike & Kathy Dunlap-Hudson, WI

The Lake Elmo Inn has become our family favorite for Mother's Day and other special occasions. N.B., we have taken to reserving on the Monday after Mother's Day for the following year to ensure Sunday seating. Else, Mother's Day brunch may be on Saturday - although this is not a hardship and may suit some better. Also, reasonable prices make Lake Elmo Inn a top choice at any time. Food, service, and the wine list are always superb.

As a party of six we arrived with a bang. Curtis the barman coped easily and delivered the perfect French martini that I've had on my trip through the US. Nothing seemed to stump him from a pink gin to a very large margarita. The service was quietly professional and Judy our waitress was like my Nana! Couldn't be better. For starter you must try the pot stickers and I had a 20 ounce rib eye steak which I managed to finish for the first time it was that good. Wines reasonably priced with the magnums giving best value. This place is a little gem that the locals are trying to keep for themselves - don't let them!! Make sure you drop in if in the area.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and we've enjoyed many great meals over the years. From hors d'oeuvres, to main courses, and of course desserts, the food is always excellent. The good news and bad news, is the menu doesn't change much. If you find something you really like, it will probably be there next time. If you go frequently, you may be disappointed that you're not seeing new dishes to try out.
