    I've been visiting my grandfather in Sequim for quite a number of years and this is the best restaurant that I've been to here. The service was friendly and helpful, and the food was great.
    We had four adults and two kids in our party and we came for a late lunch on a Saturday. It wasn't very busy and there was no wait. We were greeted right away by the server/hostess.
    The portion sizes are really generous, so sharing an entree is more than doable. My kids each got a cheeseburger and they were huge, and good quality ingredients. We were able to take at least half home. I ordered the Chef Salad and it was delicious! Everything was fresh and tasty. We will definitely be back next time we are in Sequim.

    Be prepared for a long wait. Service was super slow here! I didn't get food until 25 minutes after being seated. I got the Elk burger, and the elk patty tasted gamy and uncomfortable to eat. Lots of juice came out of both patties (I hope that it was not because they used frozen meat here.). My coleslaw did not taste fresh either. The only thing I like was the onion rings.

    The waitress was nice and offered a small to-go of clam chowder. We used 20% Yelp checkin discount.

    Food looked decent when it came out, but I was disappointed so much atthe food. Nice clean and new restaurant, but I don't recommend.

    I was just craving some good old traditional American food after the lavender festival.

    I finally tried The Big Elk in Sequim. I was a bit nervous due to the bad reviews, but I just had to see for myself.

    It might be because of low expectations, but guess what? I was pleasantly surprised.

    Now here me out. I could tell they were under staffed. They had open mic night with a full room. The staff was to busy to give correct greetings and welcoming, but you could see they were running around clearing tables trying to keep things clean and moving.

    I had the surf and turf. It came with so much food. Sorry I somehow cut the steak out of this shot. The hubby had a basic hamburger. He felt it needed seasoning so he was happy he didn't get the Elk burger.

    It was not mind blowing, but from the service and food we received that night, we will be back.

    It compares to, Corner House, Joshua's, Smugglers, and even Taylors. All good eats, but nothing on the menu brings you back, except for the fact you want that type of food.

    I like to drink when I go out, so was happy for basic wine and beer. But all the other restaurants I compared The Big Elk to serve wine & spirits. The Big Elk only wine & beer. -- eating dinner at The Big Elk.

    The most confusing menu of all time! Could it be any bigger and harder to sift through ? The answer is no ! Double sided pages 5 sheets-not including specials sheet which is also double sided . Other then that its classic dinner food with classic decor nothing to write home about .

    No customer service- could care less about you. Takes FOREVER to get your food. Menu is waaayyyy to overwhelming (poor menu design). Won't be coming back and I don't recommend it.
