I was passing through Elk Horn and wanted breakfast. I had the meat lovers skillet and it was great! The service was fast and very friendly. I will be back next time I'm in the area.

Every time we go to the Elk, we leave satisfied and happy we came back. Good food day and night. Reasonable prices. Excellent prime rib on Saturday.

This is one of my favorite breakfast places in Elkhorn. Even if you are staying in Lake Geneva, it's worth the 15-minute drive. Great service. Rumor has it the lunch menu is awesome as well. You don't find family owned places like this often and prices that make you wish you were hungrier.

A great little restaurant and soda fountain! My friends raved about their food (a club sandwich and a Philly steak sandwich.) The sherbert with the club sandwich was a great touch.

The business has been in the same family and location for 3 generations. Best french fries in town. Basic diner menu with good service and very reasonable prices. Only place in town with a working Soda Fountain.

The Elk has the best breakfast in town. Very prompt service and great prices! The owner is Brad Wales and has been in his family for many years. They also have a soda fountain and counter which sits six people.

Food was very tasty. Soup great!! Felt a little ignored by the waitress. Had to flag her down every time o needed something ... Otherwise a quaint little place.

This little diner has it all from breakfast served all day to a wonderful fish fry on Friday nights with $1.00 beers! The staff is always friendly and ready to answer any questions you have about the area during your travels. A must stop for anyone traveling through Walworth Co. you won't be disappointed.
