The Ely Steak House has a full menu, with a couple special items... like their famous Butt Steak and the Bucky Burger. Seafood is also available. The salads and sides were good. There is a full bar and they have special nightly activities: karaoke, open-mike, trivia, etc.

We dined at the Ely Steakhouse at the recommendation of a staff member at our hotel. We were looking for a casual dining experience, so we sat at the bar. The bartenders were fun. The Asian Salad with Chicken was very good, and my friend loved the burger and fries.

I visit frequently so I can say that the Steak House is consistent and reliable. Always good service and the steaks make the cut. Be sure to get a reservation when you wish to eat at normal times. It is usually busy.

The Ely Steak House is a must for visitors in Ely. Good food, nice service for northern Minnesota. I have gone to the steakhouse many times but have just never written a review. If you are coming out of the BWCA or just travelling to Ely for vacation don't pass up on eating here.

Got the Bucky Burger on a recommendation from one of the workers at Piragis. One of the best burgers I've had. The beer selection was good and the taps were ice cold. Great meal after spending a few days out in the woods. Definitely coming back!

Interesting place - fast and fun atmosphere. We ate at the bar and the bartender set us up as if we were eating at a table. Had prime rib and a parmesan-bacon encrusted steak butt....both were fantastic. Salad was great and the French onion soup is to 'die for'. Would definitely go back. Recommend making reservations as the place fills... More

We had the Walleye Basket and it was delicious. Fun bar scene with ballgames playing. Service was really good and they were accommodating to my food allergies.
