Trout seared in fresh butter and garlic infused olive oil with sautéed kale and spinach and hand milled cheese grits. Add select wines list and I think I've found the best food in Slatyfork

What an incredible dinner,the beautiful ambience that is warm and visualy breath taking, with the rustic feeling of an old time traveler through time. Five course meals with impecable service, that seem to belong in a palace for kings, with exotic wines, local and afar. Rain, shine, snow, or even blizzard the staff is ready to give you a treat...

The staff was great and made the wedding a fine event. For our wedding we had a scenic background, a great reception dinner and lodging... More

They have difference types of "nights" reflected in their meal specials. Very nice diversity in the menu. Super environment - rustic elegant. Sometimes an excellent local group plays "Elk River Ramblers". Fabulous chef and hosts are welcoming and friendly.

3 men shared a cabin with great clean economical accommodations. The place was quiet and clean. There was direct TV, WIFI and a gas pot belly stove that made the place quite toasty. Lots of hot water and a friendly staff.

The restaurant at Elk River never disappoints. On Thursdays there is live music which just makes the whole evening more special. They had an Italian 3-course special which was stuffed cremini mushrooms, seafood pasta and amaretto cheesecake. It looked delicious. Husband had green shrimp and pasta and he practically licked the plate. Boring old me had the trout, I always... More

We've made this an annual tradition, couple of times each ski season, since before 2005. Went last night, made reservations night before, called to give them heads up we were running late, approx. 15 minutes, and told no problem. No problem, seated as soon as we arrived, it was a busy night, restaurant full, didn't have to wait long for... More

I spent 2 winters living/working at Snowshoe. Without a doubt, I can say the best restaurant in the area is Elk River. The owners are great, the servers are wonderful, the chef is amazing. Excellent quality food. Have the trout dip, the mussels, locally raised chicken or pork, stuffed trout, or the specials. (Oh, the specials!) Great for a date... More
