They're good at steak

We had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. My husband ordered a steak (can't remember which one), and he is incredibly picky about his steak, but really loved the steak. It has been several years since he was satisfied with steak while eating out. However, everything else was pretty mediocre. The... read more

I've been coming here for years when I'm in town. I've always been happy with the food and the service. It definitely has a cozy, small town feel. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly. I really like the walleye. Steaks are pretty good. Prices are a little high in my opinion.

Good food, pleasant accommodating service. Steaks are good but don't think that because you are in an extra-urban setting you will find them cheap

Yes, I know it's a steak house, but you must try the Walleye here, so good! Pretty good service, once and a while you get a hit or miss with the service!

The food was okay, but was a bit over priced for what you get. I had the black and blued steak which was certainly blacked...like burnt on the outside. One of the guys in the group had a Bucky Burger which he enjoyed. The atmosphere is very dark and dated...needs some light. The bar can be a bit load at... More

This is the place if you are a local...or not! Great food! Steaks are well prepared. Excellent shrimp basket!! Full bar. Family place early on but gets a little "loud" depending on the activity of the night. Often have live entertainment on the weekend...especially this week with Winter Festival. Service can be a little slow when they get busy so... More

The Eky Steakhouse is probably the most expensive restaurant in Ely. The food was good and was priced right, for a good value. The restaurant has an adjoining bar which was a little distracting from the atmosphere. Not appropriate for children.

Good location on Sheridan Street. I have been here many times over the years and ordered many menu items. I have never been disappointed. The prices are fair and the atmosphere is very comfortable. You will MOT be disappointed! Stop in, you will NOT be disappointed!
