Almost four 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.
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!
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 recipes 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 Ala 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 and beer!
~ “Wonderful night out at Elements in Camden Mo perfect evening cool breeze no bugs the faint sounds of cicada and geese. Then the food! You don't get a steak knife because you can cut it with a fork, homemade crackers with this dip you would die for and drinks that reminded me of being on a cruise. Truly 5 Star!”
~ “Great restaurant. Wonderful place to go if you want high quality food but outside the Plaza or OPKS. Worth the trip. Great food!”
~ “Ray County is so fortunate to have such a jewel of a place to be located next to the scenic hills of the Missouri river valley.”
~ “Upon entering the dining room, you are personally greeted by the chef as he flips sizzling skillets over live flames of fire! It is evident that a lot of thought has gone into the building design and lighting. This place is the opposite of corporate franchised approach to eating. It screams with people having a passion to provide an uncommon place to go for a nice evening out!”
~ “Absolutely amazing experience Friday night! It was our first time at Elements and we were blown away. Fantastic ambiance, intimate setting with a clear view of all kitchen activities which made the experience even more unique. Many in KC may view it as off the beaten path... it is, but very well worth the 30 minute trip east. The food was of extreme quality and to the liking of both sophisticated foodies and the crowd that just wants a satisfying and delicious meal. In other words, it's unique, creative, expressive, cozy, delicious, friendly and filling. We can't wait to return with friends! It competes very well against the top spots in Crossroads, Downtown or the Plaza without the crowds or hubris that such places often hold. Check it out...you'll love it!”
