Lake Elmo Inn Details
In 1983 Chef John Schiltz began living his boyhood dream of owning the Lake Elmo Inn where he began in the restaurant business as a dishwasher. John continually strives of provide the finest cuisine with excellent service to make your dining experience the best it can possible be. It no surprise the Lake Elmo Inn has received many awards from Best Brunch 12 years in a row to Top 10 Restaurant as voted by the readers of Mpls/St Paul Magazine. Lake Elmo Inn's desserts, wine list, & service also all ranked very favorably.
Being an independent restaurant, we have to do a better job" says Chef Schiltz "or we will get rolled over by the chains."
There is a lot of history within the Inn. Many great collections; salt & pepper shakers - 3000 - 4000 sets, crystal decanters & vases, carved ducks, paintings & no one decorates like the Inn at Christmas. It's worth the drive just to see it. 124 Nutcrackers and over 60 snow globes... just to name a few.

Lake Elmo Inn is apart of The Twin Cities Originals, which is a group of independently owned restaurants dedicated to promoting and preserving unique dining experiences.

Located just minutes form the hustle and bustle of the Twin Cities, the Lake Elmo Inn sits nestled in the historic country charm.
