Great meal

Instead of hitting up the usual tourist spots, head over to the steakhouse. This place is open year round, and even during the week stay open late. Kitchen is even open until nine! Right downtown, good food. Can get as fancy a dish as you fancy. Burgers are fair priced, while the chefs dishes... read more

Very good steaks and walleye. I have been going to the steak house for years. It is consistently good and the prices are reasonable. During the summer it can be crowded in the evenings. Reservations would be helpful for large groups.

Nice restaurant, we had the Bucky Burger, more than I could eat. After eating we played some pool on the free pool table. They also had the hockey game on which was a plus for my partner

We have been to this quaint steakhouse many times over the years. My wife usually orders the walleye [a Northwoods tradition] and I would order a steak - both always satisfying. Two years ago the establishment just happened to be celebrating the selling of the 100,000th "Bucky Burger" the night we were there. The place was packed and we knew... More

I am not a meat eater, but my husband liked everything about the Ely Steak House. He loved his food, the ambiance of the place and the seating (we had a booth). I ordered fish, and it was fine...I assume that their specialties are what the name says, steak. I liked the atmosphere as well. We have been visiting Ely... More

Even though the restaurant was very full and seemed busy we had the best service and a very tasty dinner! We ended up getting dessert which tasted very good as well! Will definitely be going back for dinner again! YUM!

You have to start off with the French Onion soup. VERY good! Then try the BuckyBurger! I have been bringing guys to the Ely Steakhouse for years and they are always impressed by the BuckyBurger! We'll even drive back into town from Moose Lake just to eat one!

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 walleye sandwich was just average, the mashed potatoes were... 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.
