Ely is full of restaurants and you can't visit them all. But this is one I can truly recommend. It's rare to find a place that really pays attention to small details that make a dining experience special. The food was excellent and it was apparent that someone is paying close attention to ingredients, from the choice of greens to... More

The food was good, the prices were a bit steep. I had the classic flat iron steak and it was really nicely cooked and I enjoyed it. I'd certainly order it again. The service was friendly, we weren't rushed, but management needs to turn up the thermostat. We would have stayed longer in the bar watching a football game, but... More

After shopping up and down the street we decide to rest and have a beverage. The bartender was fun and helpful taking pictures of our group. Will stop again next time we are in town.

Our server was very nice. When our food arrived it was bad. Sandwiches were greasy and thrown together. Soup tasted like it was from a can

Seems they have slipped a bit, we have been there in past and very happy. Seems we hit the Labor Day slump heading into their down time, not much for specials, and most they were out of. the Walleye, wild rice patty put on a sandwich was way too much filler on a large bun with a tasteless sauce. The... More

On August 10th three of my friends and I visited rockwood for lunch. It was a lovely day and we got a nice table outside in the sun - that was the only positive part of the experience. We ordered our lunch which was 4 burgers and drinks. The drinks arrived after 20 minutes and the food took a full... More

Our family of four ate outside in the covered patio area for lunch. There was a breeze running through the patio and we enjoyed the landscaping complete with a stream and flowers. Our server was a lovely girl yet service was a bit on the slow side. We ordered a walleye appetizer (like a crab cake but with walleye) which... More
