Rockwood is a fixture in Ely Minnesota Easy Access, good food and very pleasant place. We like it so much that we ate there twice during our week in Ely Minnesota. We will return

I had a patio seat and was really happy with menu options. I ended up ordering one of their salads (blueberry I think) and two of the appetizers that sounded great. The service was really great as well - I highly recommend to anyone.

On a Sunday evening, this place wasn't that crowded so we were seated right away. My wife had walleye sliders while I had stuffed meatloaf. Both our entrees were pretty tasty and filling - we had no room for dessert. The service was friendly. Each cloth napkin has a little animal applique!

The Rockwood Burger was a real delight - one of the best meals around, great staff, the outdoor patio is so nice and refreshing!

The service was excellent and the food yummy. The wild rice soup was creamy and flavorful. The cauliflower in the house salad a nice touch. Good selection of beers. Crunchy and tasty sweet potato fries. The locals eat here...what does that tell you? Decor and noise level very good. The name is Rock Wood.

We went here on a beautiful fall weekend evening and ate on the patio. The service was good and the food was excellent. We both had entrees and the portions were good, the taste was superb. They also have a number of minnesota beers on tap, which is always a plus.

Everything I've ever had here is good. Even when busy they take good care of you. We had burgers and pretzel appetizers, excellent!

I have been there a couple times, and wasn't real impressed. But they were very busy, so that may have had an impact. Service was quite slow, and food was mediocre. It was also quite noisy.

Basically this is an Applebee's with a Scandanavian vibe. We had a terrific server. Warm cozy booth. But the food is only OK and there is a bar scene that intrudes on the dining experience. Probably though one of the better options in Ely.
