“What a gem in the rough with unique food and wine offerings & live bluegrass music on a Thursday night!!! Bravo!”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

The food was an eclectic mix of flavors & the kale & quinoa with chicken was not any dull chicken dish it was infused with rich herbs. The special 3 course offering was seafood ceviche followed by chile rellenos and the grand finale was banana empanadas with homemade chocolate / cayenne pepper ice cream that was out of this world!!! All this was such a pleasant surprise in a beautiful rural location! Everything we ate was wonderful!

“Best Food in Area”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Elk River Lodge/Inn, has for two decades or longer been the finest dining experience when visiting Snowshoe any time of year. The menu varies and is always fresh and appealing. This is easily a 5 star establishment, 7mi south on 219 from Snowshoe. You will NOT be dissapointed. If you stay there, the complimenatry breakfast is also fantastic.

“Average meal here”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Nothing bad, just nothing to rave about. It was a busy night and I felt a little neglected. They ran out of bread.

“Elk River Inn provides wonderful lodging and excellent cusine.”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Our family spent several days after Christmas at the Elk River Inn. We rented the entire farmhouse, which allowed 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. A breakfast buffet came with the rental and it was extraordinary. The dinner menu was varied and all our dinners were excellent. The staff is friendly and efficient. The setting is lovely and restful with great hiking trails leading from the property. We hope to return next year.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

I had a lamb and pheasant dish that was excellent and cost about $28. They have a decent wine selection and the atmosphere was very comfortable. It was perfect sitting next to the fire to thaw out after a day of skiing. I can't imagine you'll find a better meal in the area.
