We were promptly seated. The table was fine but a bit small and cramped. One by a window would have been nicer and we were right under the music tv which was a bit loud. The server came quickly and took our order accurately even with gluten free requirements. The salads were very good with excellent dressing. The steak was tender and had a good flavor. The salmon was grilled well but could have taken a touch more seasoning. Green beans were fine but a bit on the crunchy side. Baked potato was standard good. Wines were good. The death by chocolate dessert was an “out of the ballpark home run”! Wow! Overall- a wonderful, memorable experience. An easy way to step up your game, however, would be if all servers and hostesses would wear more formal attire. Black pants/white or black shirts. They don’t all have to be the exact same style to cut down on cost just a touch more formal. Best wishes for great success! We’d love to come again and bring friends next time.

We loved our evening at Parlour 1886. The ambiance was incredible and relaxing. We had a party of six, but, our meals were cooked to perfection. Most of us had steaks. Yummy!! Salads with our dinners were really good too, and the truffle fries were fantastic. They did run out of carrot cake, darn!!! We will definitely be back to try it!

Our group of 8 women was treated to a delightful dinner! We were not rushed and allowed to enjoy our wine and appetizers leisurely! Our dinners were very delicious and our special birthday carrot cake was an unexpected surprise! Being in our own room was perfect and we all enjoyed wonderful conversations and food and drinks! Thank you to our server for being so accommodating and so attentive to our needs throughout the evening!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and evening at The Parlour. We both had the smothered pork chop and commented to each other that it was probably the best and most tender pork chop we've ever had. The carrot cake was delicious and topped off the meal!

Our waitress was wonderful—friendly and very attentive. The dining room was well prepared with filled water glasses. The food seemed to take a bit longer than usual to be served but not a big deal. Once we began eating it was delicious. This was easily our best experience so far! Thank you very much!

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.

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.

Everything was perfect, EXCEPT the Television. We planned an evening away from home so we could just relax and watch our NBC and ABC shows and received NOTHING. It was very disappointing to us and even 'tho we loved everything else we will probably NOT come again because of the television situation!!!!

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 .

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!!

We arrived 8 minutes early and were promptly seated without being asked if we had a reservation. Order was taken quickly, at approximately 7:05 pm. Food was delivered to table shortly before 8 pm. Waitress advised at 7:35, 7:42, 7:47 that 'it's on it's way; it will be right out', and at 7:52 pm, she advised "they're just waiting on your fries". Burger and fries tasted great, but was cold upon arrival at table. Patty Melt was good, but: melt & fries were cold on arrival at table. Patties on melt were half the size of the bread (??). Carrot cake was outstanding. Staff is dressed casually, which you wouldn't expect from such an establishment, and professionalism doesn't exist (woman and her son, both in shorts, left their table and strolled through the kitchen...perhaps the restaurant manager? Not too cool to have non-kitchen personnel in the kitchen, but they did get their food 45 minutes ahead of us). Everyone had very long wait times, which should never happen, especially when you're only serving burger and fry type items. Also, we were given a full menu, then told 'we're only doing (this) tonight'...so there should be a separate menu for the "light menu" nights. I have credentials, so I'm not just "talking trash"...an actual chef would never send out cold food or meatball shaped patties for a patty melt. Overall, the food, although cold, did taste pretty good, and was plated for good presentation. (1) Staff needs to be dressed appropriately for this setting, in upscale matching style. (2) If 'chef' is advertised, then should actually have a chef, or at least someone with enough experience to care about what they prepare and what they send out. (3) Stress professionalism. "You guys" is an extremely inappropriate way to address the customers who pay for services which in turn provide your living; I'm female. iquette should be embraced; i.e., for a table of 3 men: "Gentlemen, it's been my pleasure to serve you. We thank you and look forward to serving you agai

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.

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.

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!!
