Delicious Food and Excellent Service! Of the four in our party, one is vegetarian and another has glucose and lactose intolerances: both were able to find something to match their preference!

We enjoyed brunch outside. The food was very good, as well as the service. The breakfast burrito was outstanding. The granola apple pancakes were also very good. The cranberry nut toast was delicious.

I gave this a 2 because the wait was long( at 11:20) for lunch. The cornbread never was served because the waitress said it was too hot to cut. It is a very disorganized place. If you don't mind getting frustrated with the wait and service, the food, (when it finally arrives)is good. I have been there many time over... More

I've never tasted such great blueberry pie with 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream to top it off. Good service and menu selections with large portions. You may have to wait a bit when it gets real busy at peak times.

We stopped in to the Chocolate Moose during our recent week in Ely. We went during the lunch time period. I had a side salad and their tomoato-basil soup, which were both delicious. The soup was also served with cornbread which was divine. My husband had their hot turkey sandwich which was also delicious. Excellent service, as well! Will definitely... More

We try to get to Ely every summer for camping. It would not be complete without a trip (or two) to the Chocolate Moose! We have NEVER been disappointed! From the service to the food it is tops! You may have to wait but it is well worth your wait. We try something different each time we visit and EVERYTHING... More

The food here is consistantly good. I like the woodsy decor as well. The location is right downtown. Good beer selection. Steak are done just right.

A wide variety of great food in a small town. Their walleye, wild rice soup and meatloaf were outstanding as well as the chocolate mousse cake!

They had a few items with the GF stamp (nice not to have to ask a million questions). The salmon was not marked GF, but looked like it would be so I asked and the waitress knew right away that it was without one minor item. I even had a soup option. It was wonderful.

We ate breakfast lunch and dinner here during our stay in the area. All 3 meals were fresh and delish! I highly recommend The walleye sandwhich! And the fact that they had gluten free bread was another plus. Excellent friendly service. Super yummy fresh desserts, oh, and even the home made cole slaw was amazing!
