McMenamins Elks Temple
First time and what a find. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
From the minute we walked in the door we were treated warmly and friendly. Immediate seating, by a window. Good water view but the building is filled with things to keep you visually occupied. All health protocols are being followed by staff from masks to seating. Waiter was great, full of info and recommendations. We had the Crab fondue and I can't say enough about its deliciousness. The sliders were also very good. Finished it off with desserts that were delectable. They are serious about being 21 to have the Whiskey Bread pudding. I've only been to 4 McMenamins so far but every one has been a great experience. I hope to go back to this one and experience many more of them in the PNW.
Great way to experience the old days - mind-century 20th century! Really enjoyed the ambiance and service was excellent.
Both food and service were top notch!
Plus the ambience is so magnificent!
One of my very favorite places.
Food was delicious and we had an awesome view of the water
Everything was absolutely fantastic!! Our waitress was very attentive. The food was absolutely out of this world amazing! We love McMenamins!
This was our first visit to McMenamins Elks Temple Tacoma. I had been worried about parking but we were able to find parking close enough. Our food was very good and we had excellent service. Love the old building and antique furnishings. Also great view of the waterfront. I would definitely go back. Would like to look around the place a little more next time and try out some of the other restaurants too.
Great times and food.
Bloody Mary was worthwhile
And my hole in One sandwhich was yummy.
Mcminamins has definately suffered the ravages of the pandemic. With staff shortages and turnover, it shows each time I visit the restaurant. This time, the service was much better, but the scones have definately changed. They were my favorite, but now they are smaller and seem like a diffrent recipe. My bacon was barely cooked and breakfast over all seemed like it didn't have the quality and care like when they first opened.
A fun way to spend an evening exploring unique bars before and/or after a nice meal at the pub. Great night out with a date or friends!
I love McMenamins, but I think we won't go on a Saturday night again.. Was very busy and very loud, but it was Saturday night, so to be expected. The server was busy but very attentive. I ordered one of the specials Cod on risotto and my husband ordered a cheesesteak. His food was really good. My food was pretty terrible and cold. They took it back and I ordered my usual favorite, shrimp and grits. I've ordered this dish multiple times in the past and it is usually perfect. This time it was cold, but it also had an acrid taste like the sauce had been burnt.
Fun place to go, loud noise level, but good food, fun overall
Food and service was great up until we paid for our meal and initial drinks, but once that was collected our initial server never came back and we wanted to order after dinner drinks. We had to flag someone else down to get them and even then we never saw our original server. Otherwise everything was perfect!
Awesome service. The food was great.
Friendly and great atmosphere
It was a very pleasant venue and we were very happy with the excellent service Ashley N provided. She was very polite and respectful. The crab fondue is to die for. Ahi Tuna steak was the most amazing. Bar drinks were really good too. I would rate this place 10/10.
The crab dip and Mac and cheese is so freaking good! One of my favorites! Love the service, love the food 10/10
Family weekend at University of Puget sound - loved taking our son and his friends here for amazing food!
My salad was very good. It was just the right amount as well. My husband food was cold when he received it. The waiter was most likely very busy and my husband's food probably sat for awhile before it was served. Everyone in our party did enjoy the ambience of the restaurant and we will be back.
What an experience had a great time will be back sooner than later
Eclectic locale; great food & service. Will go again.👍
This place is amazing. Love the food and ambiance here. Always excellent service
First time visit (birthday) with family. Perfect venue! I am already planning my next event.
We stayed at the hotel and ate dinner at the main pub. It was fine,standard McMenamin’s fare. In retrospect, we would go eat dinner at the Tiki Bar (Old Hangout) downstairs. The grub, bartenders and vibe was so fun! Will return and go there first (and stay there!).
All was superb! The food was fabulous and so was the service. The ahi tuna was cooked correctly and we enjoyed the crab dip with pretzels. Great tasting spinach salad with the tuna. Loved it so much that we are taking my sisters there who will be visiting from California.
Last minute; went well.. very
Impressed on ambiance, service & food quality.
I’m obsessed and will be returning for anniversaries birthdays and other events !!!!
Great service and amazing food
The service was not up to Mcminamins usual standards. Very slow and the wait staff was not on the ball. We had to ask for silverware, crayons for our toddler, in fact insist they bring some for her. We asked for an extra bowl to share oyr ice cream and was told there was no bowls, so we got a plate. Over all we were disappointed.
Love McMenamins, we are tripsters filling our passport. Elks Temple is very impressive, excellent restoration job, kudos!
Poor service. We were a large party and not one thing came out at the same time. Not worth the price. Our server could care less also
My friend and I had a pretty good time here. The food was delicious, I had their elk based burger with their special bacon jam <— definitely a must have ! I can’t remember the name of my drink but it was tangy and refreshing as it contained grapefruit juice. The atmosphere was cool, a little too quiet in my opinion. Our waitress was super sweet and knowledgeable. I’d definitely return.
Such a fun place, and the food was all delicious.
We came for the first time to celebrate my birthday. The bar service downstairs was great but the service for dinner was 7/10. We didn’t receive any water refills, our plates stayed on the table until we left and we had to ask for the bill. Now, to be fair we know everyone is short staffed in the food industry so we will come back again to try it out again. We left with a full stomach which is a bonus :)
The food and service was great but the table placement was terrible. This was our 40th anniversary and wanted it to be special but the table we were seated at was directly in the middle of the main traffic area right in front of the fireplace. Very disappointing.
Reservations were for 1:00 PM.
The fish and chips were delicious, though the fries seemed a bit old and stale this time. It is usually very good. The seared ahi was also delicious.
Wonderful as usual! Love to eat, drink and have fun at Elks Temple!
McMenamins is always a good time. Love the atmosphere, drinks and food. My mother in law had never been and was loving everything about it! We went for my birthday and had great service and a good time.
The hostess and waitress were great (730pm reservation on 8/29 - didn’t catch their names) and we enjoyed our dinner. We checked out The Vault and the bar on the bottom floor - your bartender at The Vault made great drinks! We had a great evening.
The food and drinks we tried were all so yummy. We had snacks, dinner and breakfast here and have nothing but good things to say about it.
This was our first visit here and we are already planning on coming back again :)
