    We have been eating at the resort for over 20 years at least once or twice every summer. Setting is amazing, staff is friendly and attentive, meals are unbelievable. When we have been there with friends they are always pleasantly surprised to find such great cuisine in the woods of North Idaho.

    Elkins Resort offers an elegant dining experience in a beautiful setting. We tried three dishes, two salads and one dessert. The menu was diverse, with something for every taste. All the dishes were good to outstanding. The price was comparable to what the meals would cost in any non-coastal city. The service was impeccable. A great stop for anyone visiting or staying over at Priest Lake.

    We were celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary. We felt rushed from the second we sat down until we left, wlch was an hour later. The appetizer was great. We both had the halibut, and it was so, so. Whole meal very salty. Would not have gotten a second glass of wine if I hadn't asked...wasn't offered. Dessert was very good. Agsin...like the couldn't get us out of there soon enoufh..won't be going back anytime soon.

    I had the braised short ribs with demi glace on a bed of cheese risotto and it was outstanding. The meat was flavorful and super tender. I wish I could find short ribs that have that much meat on them.

    Very lovely views of the lake from every table. The food was tasty, well presented. The prices are high, but then again it is remote and you don’t have to fix or clean up. We walked from the Reeder Camp ground right next door. Took 8 minutes on the steet side or along the beach. Either depending win your shoes. There is also a marina and gift shop on the same location.

    We had the scallop special and it was fabulous. The rice and sauce were a perfect pairing. Also had the mushroom appetizer which is always excellent. My only disappointment is I really want a dark chocolate dessert even better if gluten free! Special thanks to our great waitress, Sam.

    Second time having been to Elkins… Food tasted great but unfortunately both times we’ve been there they have screwed up our bill and charged us for items another table have ordered overcharging us for our dinners both times. Last nights bill had over $150 of extra wine added to our tab. I understand that mistakes happen but….

    Cindy at "The Inn at Priest Lake," steered us towards Elkin's for our Anniversary Dinner. It was excellent, from the front door staff, to the wait people who served us water and took our order. The food was excellent and I enjoyed myself, which means the food was on par to the way I cook, but I didn't have to do all the work and spend the time preparing our anniversary dinner as I've done many times before. The meal was flavorful and pure joy for a wonderful day's celebration.
