McMenamins Elks Temple
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 :)
We went to the Elk’s Temple for my husband’s birthday. The original reservation was for four, but when we added five more (called a few days in advance), they graciously accommodated. The food, drinks, and service were excellent. This is why we keep coming back. Thank you!
The wait staff was lacking. I was at a table of 7 but not to busy at all. The wait staff brought us the appetizers, we ordered several for us all to share. But they did not bring out plates. Once I got there attention she brought out plates but no serving utensils or napkins. Had to ask for those as well. For my entree I had the prime rib cheesesteak the cheese sauce was awful and I am not sure what spice they use but it ruined the entire sandwich. I will not eat there again
Our server was outstanding
The food here is pub food with a little luxury thrown in! It is all wonderful. Kids menu is also great, and server offered my daughter a grilled cheese when she could not find what she wanted on the menu. Draft ciders and beers brewed in house were great, as is the beautiful view of commencement bay from the dining room. Well worth the trip to Tacoma and the cost of food.
We had an awesome time and highly suggest the fish and chips and burgers. This trip I tried the ahi tuna sandwich and was a little disappointed, it tasted fishy and mostly like horseradish.
The Spanish Bar the last few times we have gone has been a disappointment, however.
All the other venues have given excellent service and provided wonderful food and drinks! Get dinner in the Pub then explore, we usually like to round out the night at The Old Hangout.
Wonderful food although took some time to get it. Love the decorations and got a table with a wonderful view
I've never had a bad meal here. The service is almost always stellar. It's worth the trip just to check out the chandeliers!
Great pub food, awesome ambience. Fun place to visit with friends.
It was okay. Nothing amazing food wise but not bad either. We still enjoy this place greatly.
The steak was very good but the vegetables were too salty and overcooked.
We had reservations for 10 people to celebrate out 24 year anniversary. Table was ready on time, waitress took our drink order and appetizers and they came with no problems. We ordered more drinks and the waitress took our dinner order then she forgot we existed. I tried to get her attention several times and she was not paying any attention. She closed out her other tables and during out dinner order came and was wrong. My wife go the wrong meal and didn't receive the correct meal until everyone else had completed their meal. The waitress was very attentive when it was time for us to pay our bill and had no idea we had no drinks after our meal came and never asked if we were ready for another round.
I know most restaurants are having a hard time hiring experienced help right now but when you know you have very inexperienced servers you would think the manager would be around checking on tables but the manager was no where to be seen.
Hopefully the service will improve after the unemployment runs out in September and people need to find a job.
I won't go back until they are able to hire more help and fully open their whole facility!
Had a great time at the Elks Lodge! Dinner and drinks were both delicious. They've done an incredible job with the demo/remodel of this place. I grew up in Tacoma and it's nice to see this building in use. It has been such an eyesore for so long. McMenamins has done an incredible job, as usual, with the décor. Simply whimsical!
Usual McMenamin's food, but seems to be more expensive. $40 halibut special, near the water on Puget Sound when others are offering fresh halibut, was the overcooked frozen variety. Risotto is came on was better than average, but that still did not make it a $40 entre. Partner had fish and chips; non-noteworthy fish and sadly, for people who must serve a ton of chips a day across all their properties, limp ordinary chips. Other people know how to make great chips. I love what the McMenamin brothers have done restoring old buildings and turning them into community spaces for meeting and lodging; if only they valued the quality of the food.
Tried McMenamins for the second time after a much delayed experience with the first go-around. This time the all around experience was much better, reservations on time, service commendable, surroundings better than normal, food adequate but nothing exceptionable.
Would recommend to a friend but with caveats.
Staff was friendly, food was good, ambience was amazing!
Staff was prepared for distancing and wore masks. Service was quick and special request are handled gracefully.
The venue is gorgeous and a lot of fun. The food and service was average at best. Worth going to see the building and all the fun bars/event spaces. Don’t go expecting a memorable meal.
Lovely dinner-atmosphere is great and stellar service!
Yummy breakfast/brunch menu items in a lively space (on the weekends; quieter during the week) with servers that know their stuff and are always pleasant and helpful.
It’s a great spot to get breakfast, dinner, or casual drinks! The service was outstanding. Great experience!
