Celebrating our 12th anniversary and went to the Inn as it was where we had our wedding reception. We’ve come here every year for 12 years to celebrate. The food was not as good as usual but it may have been colored by our experience....More

Another experience at the Lake Elmo Inn that didn’t meet my expectation. First of all, upon being escorted to our seats I noticed a strong fish odor in the dining room. It was not a pleasant fish odor. One of the other people in our...More
