Five years ago, Kurt and Diane set out to live the dream of bringing a destination dining experience closer to home; they did this literally by building Elements on their 50-acre homestead! We hope that our guests can enjoy a casual yet elegant dinner where the entertainment includes watching the cattle graze in the beautiful rolling hills. Elements Destination Restaurant celebrated its Fifth Year Anniversary in June of 2018; the Elements’ Team is proud to have received a 5 Star rating every year we have been open!
Open Kitchen Concept
Having an open kitchen is very important to the Elements’ team; because the kitchen is open to the dining room, it creates a fun, interactive atmosphere and allows us to have a relationship with everyone who comes through the front door! You can watch your meal being prepared, talk with the cooks and…you cannot miss the aroma! In addition to seating in the dining room and on the deck, we also offer two “front row seats” at the end of the cooking line to allow guests an up-close view of the magic taking place.
Tantalize Your Taste Buds
The style of food featured is American, with a twist. Old and New World recipes from places like Germany, Italy, Scandinavia and France; as well as dishes from Grandmother’s recipe book. We pride ourselves on our handcrafted pasta, crackers, sauces and specialty items that are made with personal recipes and the freshest ingredients. The menu varies from week to week, allowing you to try something new every time you visit! Eat from the Ála Carte Menu or pick an entrée for a Four Course meal. The meal comes with the weekend’s appetizer, salad, the entrée of your choosing, dessert and all the coffee or ice tea you can drink. We also have a great selection of wine, spirits and beer!

Letter from the Chef
2019, can you believe it?! It was a fun 2018 for us, seeing our regular customers and meeting a lot of new ones.
I was amazed by the compliments heard from our guests. One guest said, “it was the best meal I have ever had.” A regular customer who has traveled the world over, told me that his meal was “the best I could remember in a long, long time.” I heard many similar compliments all year, thank you all and it means a lot to me.
I am working on some new menu items for our reopening on January 18, 2019 (unless this snow keeps up!). It is not easy to come up with new items or styles of cooking/preparation of everyday items. Our hot items in 2018: Homemade Crackers, Beef Diane, Seafood Medley and Lobster Tails (prepared in my special way). These items were a huge hit and will be around as we plan for 2019.
We will be bringing back German Night; Fat Tuesday (or Cajun Night) and trying a few other themed nights. Keep watching us on Facebook (Elements by Food Montage) or let us know if you want to be notified of special events. Notifications can be sent via email or text about upcoming events. Thanks to all for your support…here we go starting year six!
