nice sma town steakhouse

Nice small town steakhouse. Great friendly service. We had the walleye parmesan. It was different but good. We probably should have gone with the steak or burger but thought we'd try something different. We will definitely return on our next trip to Ely.

For years the Ely Steakhouse was our "go-to" restaurant in Ely, but after several bad experiences we quit going. Now, after a few year absence, we decided to try it again. We started out the evening by requesting the dining area on the bar-side, which the hostess seemed to take offense to and was quite unfriendly ~ which may have... More

The reviews stating slow service are not exaggerating! We had to flag down the waitress for everything we needed; refills, napkins, the bill... Food was mediocre.

A great burger, very juicy, cooked to order, with a great selection of toppings. Onion rings instead of fries were awesome as well.

We visited the steakhouse recently and enjoyed every second of it! The food was delish (and we welcomed a huge meal after camping for 5 days), but the service was even better. We had a waitress named Molly who was kind, funny, and on top of things. I had the petite filet and it was cooked perfectly...I wish I got... More

Just had to try the Bucky Burger this year. So often it seems things that are really hyped fail to live up to expectations...not so with the Bucky Burger! It was everything it was supposed to be; big, juicy, and delicious. To make things even better our service was top notch, too. The Ely Steak House is definitely a place... More

We stopped for a quick bite to eat. The food and service was excellent. The place looks a little run down but the Bucky Burger was one of the best burgers we've ever tasted!

We are frequent visitors and are always pleased with the food and service. The fresh bread is a nice treat. The broasted chicken is excellent .
