We went there a couple of times and sat either outside or inside and feasted on fantastic cakes. The service was good, food and drink awesome, we would certainly go again if we ever returned to Ely. The right time for us was to go in the afternoon after hiking or canoeing or a trip to the bear or wolf... More

The food was great. While we waited for our meal we went next door to check-out the great clothes and gifts. The food at the Chocolate Moose was great! The waiter was super helpful and kind. They were out of a few items, but recommended other options. Nice size portions. Great outdoor seating. Fun people watching.

Wonderfully healthy options mixed in with flavorful burgers and such. GREAT desert menu. Sitting in the log cabin or on the porch ALWAYS makes me with that that restaurant was what my HOME looked like! Wonderfully Yummy!

Easily the best burger I have ever had. No comparison. I was sad when I was finished and ready to order another. The Rasberry Peach pie was darn good too. Loved seating outside in the beautiful weather we experienced on Sunday.
