Hot Pretzels and Gouda!

Our family stopped by for a mid afternoon appetizer and beer break. Along with the variety of craft brew choices (flights available), we enjoyed the hot pretzels with Gouda cheese. They were so great, we needed to order a second round. The walleye bites were average, a bit too small to really get a... read more

I am in Ely for the week and wanted a great vacation meal with my wife and friends. We waited almost an hour to get seats outside where the restraunt had entertainment. But when we were finally taken to our table we were placed directly beside the speaker which was extremely loud ( when we left we could hear the... More

The cheese curds appetizer is the best cheese curds I've ever had! They have a real flavor to them! The burger was okay, the pepper jack cheese on top excellent, and outstanding fries! Also Virgin strawberry daiquiris were very flavorful! The service was okay, our waitress didn't really check back with us on the food. Or refill our empty water... More

The Jerk Pulled Pork was great! A good portion for lunch. Our waitress was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed including refills on beverages. We sat outside since the weather was nice. The view of the street was restricted. The bushes and flowers should be trimmed back some to give the surrounding area a cleaner look.

Average American food, large portions, not bad, but not great with rustic appeal via the decor. Nothing to write home about, but not horrible either, just average food and service. It is worth a visit while you are in Ely, but you won't sit at home a month later craving a return visit.

My wife and I stopped in for a quick late lunch and we shared a blueberry salad. It was so good we had to go back for dinner the next night so she could have this salad again.

Music and food was good. Prices were a little higher than expected, but then you are in Ely MN. If they are having live music try your hardest to get an outside spot on their patio.

We have visited several times this summer and have never been disappointed. The pulled pork has more kick than expected, but it was very tasty. Onion rings are above average. The fish caked sliders appetizer was fun, too. Service is attentive. This is a good place to visit if you want something a little (but not a lot) different.

We had dinner here and I didn't think they had a good variety of food to chose from but what they had was good and you got lots of it. It would have been fun to eat outside on the patio but we didn't know they had one when we were there as we weren't offered a table out there.... More

We were biking through Minnesota and stopped at Rockwood for lunch. I had one of the best burgers I have ever had. My husband had a burger and said his was great also. My sister had the walleye tacos and she said they were excellent. Nice place, great service and we had a fantastic waitress. Stop here if you get... More
