Excellent choice to get away for a day. The entire staff was great. We will go back. Thanks to the management and staff for a beautiful building and a nice place to come and eat and relax.
Drinks and service were great! Food could’ve been better.
Our waitress Emmali was the best. She was attentive without hovering, engaged with our table while we ordered and everytime she came to check on us! 10/10 the best!
Bread was not fresh, tasted greasy from the grill. Green beans overcooked. Steaks very good..but too much salt. Twice baked potato was dry. Server handled other folks' water glasses and then ours...covid transmission no-no. Husband got sick in middle of night after the meal (no other food intake...) Server picked a lady's face mask off the floor and handed it to her...then handled food without washing hands. Covid and common sense...high risk.
Excellent food, great service, a wonderful dinner out!
Love the ambience, the food was delicious, the service was superb & friendly. We'll defiantly be back!!!
What a beautiful hotel and restaurant. I a true gem in a small Kansas community. The service and food were great; the 8 instead of a 10 was mainly because I'm a bit picky on cheesy hashbrowns--the presentation of them was a bit understated. The Carrot Cake waffle, sausage filled crepes and the full breakfast were yummy. We couldn't resist trying the Carrot Cake either and it was all that we had hoped for! We will be back soon.
The service was wonderful and the food was good, except for the smoky bread. The hotel is beautiful. It is worth the trip to Marion.
This Hotel is the very best we have had the privilege to visit. The staff was very helpful and made us feel as though we were the only guest in the world. We will be back for the money this is the place to be.
Food, service, and atmosphere are great. The prices are a bit high in my opinion.
Such a wonderful place real old world feel. Would definitely recommend.
Great food and a very enjoyable and historical setting. We will definitely be back!
We had an amazing time! Thank you!
Great food and great service in a beautiful restaurant.
What a beautiful setting in this quaint little town. Absolutely loved the food, the service, the ambiance. Recommend 100%!
I have always loved the Elgin Hotel having grown up in Marion County, also it has special meaning as it is where my parents honeymooned back in 1948 . It is rich in history and a treasure to behold. But sadly all of the food ordered was not up to our expectations .MY mom ordered the crepes and cheesy hash browns the hash browns were not warm, she did not order the 2 little pieces of sausage on her plate but was told they were free, but they were almost burnt. My patty melt ordered off the lunch menu was pretty red in the center and my daughters was a little more than pink but not as red as mine . My daughter ordered dessert I believe it was the fried ice cream with the chocolate ganache, was ordered when she ordered her patty melt so plenty of time to have made, the waitress comes and says they cannot provide this since they turned the fryer off already . So they ordered the carrot cake ( very good) but not first choice . over all a good experience waitress was super. food not so much .Thank you Anita Schmidt .
On the porch, the window and ledge next to our table was dirty and a dead bug, but the waitress was sweet
Chef confused? Under cooked filet sent back, a ribeye came back! Was delicious but not what was ordered. Service great, friendly staff.
A super cool period-piece of a restaurant. Friendly service. More food than we could eat! Usually appetizers are few bites. We recieved enough for the whole place. I had the surf and turf special. An enormous cut of incredibly tender beef, and a bowl of delicious shrimp--not four, there were like 15. My wife had a savory chicken marsala, also delicious. We put more in take out containers than we actually ate, which made lunch the next day absolutely extraordinary! Highly recommended!!
Food was good, a little pricey for me to come often. Waited a hour for our food. Overall very good.
Staff great! Pleasant & accommodating. Prices exhorbitant.
My steak was not a ribeye even though I ordered one. I sent it back 3 times, it was too rare. The shrimp was blah but everything else was super spicy. The twice baked was more like three times baked, I had to cut it with my steak knife. Don't waste your time calling that garlic bread. I also had to ask for the mushrooms. The place, the people are great but the food for that price should have melted in my mouth. Sorry but you asked.
Swordfish overcooked. Beautiful quiet setting. Excellent service. A bit pricey.
We had a really great experience, and are so excited to see the restaurant open back up. We didn’t receive one of the appetizers we ordered, but the food we did get was good. Would love to see some lighter options for appetizers, loved the previous hummus option, and maybe an expanded salad selection. Overall very good and great drinks!
I am hoping it was just an off night. Every part of our order was wrong from the temp of the steak to the side items we ordered (every side item was replaced with something we did not order). It took over an hour to get our salads and appetizer. Another 45 minutes later we got our food. We had to ask multiple times for just a drink refill. The food itself was mediocre for the price we paid. The location itself was great, especially if you like historical places. It is like going back to the 1880s.
The service was great. The burgers we had were way under cooked, 1 was ordered as medium, it had raw uncooked meat in the center, the other 2 burgers were ordered well done, they were more medium rare. So the food side was a large let down.
The loud drunk people wandering throughout the restaurant without masks shouting as they walk around definitely wreck the ambience of this beautiful spot.
THe servers and greeters should be wearing masks.
Very clean, nice atmosphere. Salad was warm and wilty, homemade ranch dressing was not good. Thought it was bad. Swordfish was good but a 6oz Swordfish filet on a big plate by itself with nothing else included. Nice staff!!
