Eleven of us met for brunch recently. We had reservations a month in advance. However, instead of putting us at a large table (which they have several) or putting some tables together, they sat us at a long bench. We were unable to visit with each other. Parents were unable to sit with their small children. Our family was visiting... More

Great food, excellent service, lovely atmosphere. We enjoy both eating in the bar and in the regular restaurant rooms. The brunch is especially fun.

My wife and I were married at the Lake Elmo Inn event center last Nov. 13th. This year we went back to the Lake Elmo Inn for our 1 year anniversary dinner. Let me start off by saying how phenomenal our server Vicki was. Not only was she a gracious hostess but she was funny and went out of her... More

We dined at the Lake Elmo Inn on Saturday night with a large group. As always, the food was great -- on the expensive side (most entrees were $25-35 or more), but very tasty. 5 stars all the way. I can't say the same for the service. The service is what brought my rating down, because it was only worth... More

Siblings and spouses out for a memorial lunch. Excellent wait staff. Everyone was quite satisfied with food. We ate, we drank wine, we laughed and shared memories. Though we all have eaten here before, this was especially memorable. Delicious!

We often go to the Lake Elmo Inn for dinner and an occasional brunch. The food is always very good and the service is great. We most enjoy going to Wednesday night raw nights. The fresh purchase by the piece shrimp, oysters, crab claws and sunfish sliders are very good but the service is even better. We like sitting in... More

This year for my daughters birthday she wanted to try someplace different, and not in either of the downtown area's. That, for me was a simple choice. It would of course be the Lake Elmo Inn. I made reservations early on for eleven thirty in the morning. As usual Lake Elmo is suffering from the Minnesota Summer Disease, Road Construction.... More
