Diamond City Bread

315L Jackson Ave NW
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
Love, love and love. Every loaf of bread I've ever gotten here has been delicious and wonderful. Had a sun dried tomato loaf a couple weeks ago, and just tried the french peasant and cheddar jalapeno. I think I'm going to have to swear off grocery store bread for the rest of my life. Worth the money to get something fresh and wonderful. If you're in the area - stop in, and bring some home. Definitely worth the time!
Bread Heaven. Walking down the stairs, you can smell the quality and know you are in for a treat. This basement bakery is one of the hardest places to find, but when you do, you will return for more. My daughter particularly likes the Caramel Rolls.
Sadly lacking common sense and hygiene. We had stopped by for a much anticipated first visit and left by choice without anything. There was a young man working the counter helping another couple when we walked in. We watched him count the money and bag their order. He then moved on to us, we ordered a sourdough loaf and ask for it to be sliced. He grabbed the bread with bare hands (after handling money) and put the bread on the slicer. I ask if he thought he should be handling money and the bread without gloves or washing his hands. His reply was "would you like me to wash my hands"..ummm yes. He walked by 2 boxes of gloves on the way to the sink. I decided to just leave without the bread. If they do this out in the open can you imagine what the customers don't see.

China Dragon

18157 Carson Ct
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
Mostly to go but they had about 6 tables so we dined in. Ordered the Moo Goo Gai Pan and Hunan Tripple Crown which was marked spicy and had just the right amount of flavor. Both dishes came to $22 - and included rice. Would've been nice if they provide silver ware but we ate with cheap plastic forks so it was nothing fancy but food is good and there's nothing to complain either. Could've been worse. Cashier is limited English speaking but she tried hard and is friendly.
Have been going here since we moved to Elk River. There is no better Chinese cuisine than China Dragon! The General Tso's Tofu is incredible, with excellent portions (I always get 2 meals out of ordering one). Extremely friendly staff, they remember my order right when I walk-in (what other place do you know that does this?) Amazing all-around! A+
Second time eating here and the experience is still great. Great food, good service and a chill atmosphere. More take out place than sit down but still well worth the money. Mock duck? Sooo tasty.

Pompeii Pizzeria

315 Jackson Ave
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
Amazing pizza! We had an appetizer (spinach dip which also surprisingly was a pizza) and each ordered a pizza. (Read that they were small but 10" would have been enough to feed two people. So Pizza for lunch tomorrow!) They apparently have monthly menus and September has THAI pizza which is godly! Also had the buffalina which was great! Definitely will be back. Much better than pizza ranch which is close by.
Living as far out of the city as Elk River means you go without some things. Like good Neapolitan-style pizza and hot yoga. Well, after eating at Pompeii I realize I'm really only missing hot yoga living out here. Pompeii was fantastic. I got my pizza on the gluten-free crust (out of necessity, not desire) and that's usually a sure sign of nasty pizza but this was really good! My husband, who got the regular crust, actually said he preferred my pizza to his. Pretty sure that's never happened in the history of the world. I'll definitely go back. It was nice to have someone else make me pizza that not only tastes delish but also didn't offend my stomach. Who knew?!
Pompeii is not Punch. They wish they were Punch. It's true that their crust is more solid and one can actually grab a slice and eat it with their hands. Pompeii is not true Neapolitan pizza and that's okay. It's a mixture of American and I-wannabe-Neapolitan pizza. Pompeii is okay. Do I think it's worth the pricing? Hell. No. Their pricing is very similar to Punch but their ingredients are not up to par. I ordered salami and it was the same stuff that Rainbow sells at their deli. The kicker? I got four slices. That's right--FOUR. What the hell? Bogus. Overall, I think that if I lived in Elk River I'd go to Pompeii once in a while. I do think that it really is a rip off. Just because you are trying to copy Punch Pizza (Their menu board is exactly the same as the Punch location by the U and Pompeii has the same ingredients on pizzas/used to have pizzas named VERY similar to Punch!) does not mean you can charge as much as they do for your cruddy ingredients. If Sysco delivers your pizza toppings you have issues. I will give them credit for making their own mozzarella. That's pretty awesome. It was good cheese.

Burger King

850 Freeport Ave
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
I'll admit it, on my part anyways... In the war against which burger conglomerate can raise your choleserol and give a boost to those love handles, Burger King Tops McD's any day of the week. From sandwiches, burgers, Snacks, to fries, I just enjoy The King alot better. The staff is usually quick and friendly, always get my order right, and even will seat you and bring your food to you. Dont know many other BK's that do this, but its nice, and if there is more out there that do it, go you guys! Quick through the drive through, unless you get caught behing a person who feels the need to sample one of everything with a diet coke, then complain about something. They are always fast In-store, with fresh cooked fries and a fresher tasting burger than that McD's crap.

Olde Main Eatery

313 Jackson Ave
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
Very quick breakfast service, large variety, quaint neighborly place with attentive service. Great experience! Perfect place for bfast & QUICK!
This place needs stronger coffee and crispier hash browns to complement the good breakfast ambience.
We had breakfast here. We got to our seats quick even though the place was packed. Our server did come take our order right away but the delivery of our meal took longer than normal. The food was delicious. One complaint is that it was extraordinarily hot! The woman at the table beside us brought out a handheld fan even. Might have been an off day but climate control is a must. All in all, our meal was good and we will try it again.

Daddy-O’s Cafe

709 Main St
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
First impressions matter. After reading the other reviews, my wife and I decided to try Daddy-O's during our vacation to MN. When we walked in, only half the tables had customers at them. The other half were covered with dirty dishes. There was not a single clean table in the entire place. We had to bring it to someone's (manager?) attention so that they could clean one off so we could sit and eat. Of course, cleaning the table only meant taking the dirty plates off and wiping it down with a sopping wet towel, so it was still very wet. We had to ask to get some napkins to dry it off. Service was not great. They were busy, so I try and cut them a little slack, but having been a waiter there are some basic do's and don'ts. One of the big don'ts for me is don't walk past your table that was just sat and completely ignore them. A quick "Hey, glad you're here, we're a little busy so give me just a second and I'll come back to take care of you" takes almost no time and goes a long way in making customers happier. We then also had to flag our waitress down anytime we needed anything (mustard, ketchup, drink refills, etc. I actually just got up and grabbed one of the ketchup bottles from another table since ours was empty.) The food was ok, but nothing special. A step above Burger King and McDonalds, but on par with places like Culver's or Whataburger. Fries were pretty much the same. I was surprised to find the burgers came with no trimmings, but I'm not sure if that's just a regional thing. So, overall, I was unimpressed. Definitely will not be on our list of places to go back to next time we're in the area.
A-OK. It's your typical greasy, unhealthy food with a high school staff at your service. Based on the other Yelp Reviews I think it's safe to say that you don't stop in for the food. It's a cute, local hangout with fun, vintage 50's-60's style decor. Came here with my mom on a Tuesday evening. Quiet, seat yourself, friendly staff, and quick service. My mom order a burger; I Ordered the quesadillas. They come with sour cream and salsa on the side; quite a plentiful portion as well but if you want some real, authentic Mexican food I would recommend Mucho Loco 5 minutes away, off of 169. We split a chocolate malt for dessert which was pretty tasty I must say. Prices are reasonable for what you get. My recommendation: Stop in for a malt/shake on a relaxing afternoon/evening.
They serve a hamburger that is juicy and full of flavor! The French fries are crisp and taste like a potato ... fresh and not frozen. The decor is a throwback to the 50's. Their malts are just the right viscosity (thick but not so thick that you can't pull it through the straw.) One of my top favorites if I want a great burger.

Sarpinos Pizza

9175 Quaday Ave NE
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
I found myself in Elk River, MN on a business trip. After being stuck at a local hotel, I was craving some local pizza delivery. I've had Sarpinos in Chicago and I've always liked it. This was no exception. These guys know how to make good pizza. IT IS DELICIOUS. They have all kind of different options and varieties. Well done Sarpinos. Well done.
I've had delivery from this place many times and each time the orders were 100% correct, speedy polite delivery, and great pizza. A bit expensive but they typically have specials you have to ask them before ordering.
Standard topping list but the house special is actually quite good (if a little greasy). Love the sauce, good flavor and not too sweet. Delivery times are hit or miss if you are in a hurry since they are a smaller place though.

McCoy’s Pub

651 Main St NW
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
Have to try the Garbage burger
I was at an event that was catered by them. It's still Orthodox lent, so rather than cause a fuss, I broke the fast. For a couple of reasons it was the thing to do. First, McCoy's isn't the type place to request the vegan option. Second, the pulled pork was delicious. The coleslaw and tater salad were above average. Yep, it was a chuck wagon do. The rolls were a generous size, and tasty too. I didn't investigate where they came from. We also got the pleasure of the owner taking care of the service, too. It was the opening of a new book store, with the author William Kent Krueger. I was so thrilled to sit next to him. I said "Now this is how to have a book launch."
Drink by the Rink App takes you to this McCoys Irish Pub in minutes!! Proud supporter of Elk River Hockey!!!! Need we say more? Great customer service..atmosphere and food!

New Hong Kong Buffet

600 Dodge Ave
Elk River, 55330
Reviews:
This was my second time here in less than a month. The restaurant is clean and welcoming. You pay at the front when you come in and you can seat yourself wherever you want. There are three buffet stations with more choices than I have experienced at most Chinese buffets. We particularly enjoyed the salmon, crab legs, sweet shrimp, spicy fried chicken and the peanut butter chicken - to name a few of the available buffet choices. I also noticed that the food was all spiced and flavored differently which is a huge plus at a buffet! We will definitely be coming back again!
Happened upon New Hong Kong Buffet while on vacation. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and food quality. They also had some items we have not had at other Chinese buffets such as peanut butter chicken, PP chicken, and honey chicken. All the items were cooked just right--nothing was dry or crusty. The Hot and sour soup was especially flavorful as was their Japanese chicken. Seating and beverages are self serve which is different from other Chinese buffets we have been to. Regardless we really enjoyed the food and decided to stop there on our way home from vacation as well. Again we were very pleased with the food. Definitely recommend it.
We were excited to check this place out but the excitement quickly faded once we tried the food. There were a couple of items that were okay but for the most part everything either tasted really weird, awful or was very dry. The restaurant seemed clean and there was plenty of customers but the staff seemed uninterested in clearing our dirty plates.
