Stopped in here yesterday for brunch after leaving Campground Brewdown. My first time visiting but I have always heard great things.

The space is very nice, lots of tables and a decent sized bar. It was packed with lots of happy people eating and drinking the entire time we where there. Quality seemed to be high. My food was top notch, as were the beers. Our service left a lot to be desired. Our server was great...when she was around. We had to flag her down multiple times and she forgot a few beers had been ordered, twice.

Selection was pretty good. They had eight of their regular beers on with three extra ones, including the ESB on cask. I got a DIPA and it was decent. Food was definitely the star of the show. We where there for brunch so I went with the blue cornmeal blueberry pancakes and they were great. I checked the rest of the menu and I saw quite a few things I would love to try.

Overall a great little place that I will definitely return to when I am in the area.

A great brewpub in the mountains of central pa. Brews are primarily english style ales. Six main beers always on tap with two rotating handles they use for seasonal/speciality brews. Best offering would have to be the Poe Valley Porter or Double Rainbow . When in season spring/summer elk creek takes advantage of their location and uses local ingredients from nearby farms and purveyors in their beer and food. What I enjoy the most about Elk Creek is that they keep things simple. There is no extreme or outlandish beers, just easy drinking ales that they do well. Only drawback about this place is no TV so don't plan on having a beer and watching the game. Its prolly a good thing they don't have a tv because you would never leave. If you want to experience a local friendly place with a sociable atmosphere then this the place. Well done Elk Creek.

Arrived for lunch a little after noon on a rainy Saturday. We were promptly seated, and our waitress soon arrived to take our drink order. I selected the beer on cask and was very pleased with my selection. My wife and I selected a sandwich from the menu which was served in a timely fashion. The food was delicious and the portions were adequate without being overly filling. I wanted to purchase a growler and our waitress gave me several samples before I made my selection. An excellent place to stop if you are in the area. Good people, good beer, good food. The perfect combination.
