Van Wert Lodge has been around for over 100 years. We have been in our present location since 2004.
The lodge has a nice patio which is off the lounge and offers a nice place to relax during the summer months.
Van Wert boasts the annual Peony Festival the fist weekend in June and the annual Rib Fest in August. We are also home to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center which provides exceptional entertainment for all ages.
The Van Wert Elks Lodge has a wide variety of services and amenities:
- Accepts all major credit cards (MC, VISA, AMEX, DISC)
- Large banquet hall (capacity for 200)
- Outdoor patio (seasonal)
- Fantastic grille service
We offer appetizers, sandwiches, salads and pizzas Tuesday through Saturday. Two dinner specials are also offered on Wednesdays and 2-4 dinner specials on Fridays and Saturdays. Be sure to stop by and have a great dinner!
