The Flour Mill
The Flour Mill saw a need and a want for more dining options in our town of Elk Horn, especially when it came to fresh, hand-tossed pizza. They felt that if they had great tasting food, wonderful service, and fair prices, they could be successful. Both Tyler Larsen and Tyler Morris have ties to Elk Horn. Tyler Larsen grew up and graduated high school from here, while Tyler Morris taught elementary school here right out of college. Open 6 days a week, including Sundays and Mondays, their menu features fresh, artisan pizzas along with appetizers, salads, hot hoagies, pasta dishes and made-from-scratch baked goods, as well.

The Danish Inn (Currently Closed)
Food lovers love The Danish Inn Restaurant. Famous from coast to coast on Interstate-80, The Danish Inn has been a favorite for travelers and local patrons for over 17 years. Friends adore the frikadeller (meat balls), medisterpolse (sausage) and rodkall (red cabbage). Praised for its complete menu of home-cooked, traditional Danish and American dishes, smorgasbord and daily specials, the Danish Inn is a favorite of restaurant critics. Cuisine also includes smorrebrod (open-faced Danish sandwiches) that are attractive to see, as scrumptious to taste. There are also plenty of desserts to finish off the dining experience in the relaxed, casual atmosphere.
Hours: Sunday 11:00 AM-3:00 PM, Tuesday-Saturday 11:00 AM-9:00 PM. Call for holiday hours.
