My family and I dined here over MEA weekend. Older supper club feel, which I like. Big, diverse menu. My wife and I split the delmonico steak - delicious (cooked perfectly at medium) and very ample at 22 oz. We also eat got our choice of soup or salad (get the wild rice soup) and a potato (I opted for... More

My wife and I dined here on a Friday night for their prime rib special. We arrived around 7:30pm and were told they were running out so we needed to get our order in promptly. Drinks were pretty weak and my manhattan was served in a SMALL glass and wasn't full to the top. The food itself was really good... More

We often eat here when we are in Ely. Good burgers and fries and ample portions. Fairly decent selection of tap beers. We always eat in the bar area, but they have nice seating in the dining areas.

The environment here was comfortable enough that we didn't feel out of place coming in right off a day of hiking the trails in Superior National Forest. They have a nice menu of drinks to warm you up after a chilly day outdoors, and their steaks are quite delicious.

Visited Ely first week of October. We're told by staff at a local business the best burgers are at the Ely Steak House. They were correct! This is not your typical frozen patty. You can tell they are made with fresh beef and good quality not a fatty greasy burger. Very clean and busy so that says a lot too.... More

We were in Ely for a week in August. Weather was chilly and rainy so we spent more time venturing around and in town rather than fishing :(. However, this place became our favorite very quickly and were there more than one time during the week. The staff is an absolute hoot ! Friendly, Fun and "takes it as well... More

…and it was terrific. A locals' food and watering hole with a tavern-like atmosphere and a separate dining room. We ate in the bar and had, um, steak. I can highly recommend the NY strip, the wild rice soup and the fixings. Cocktails well-poured, and the service was quite good. On the expensive side for Ely, but worth a splurge.... More

We stopped in for a late lunch. My husband and I split a Bucky Burger. One of the best burgers we have had for a long time. We also split an order of onion rings. Just right! The sandwich came with just a few french fries. For the larger appetite, you may want to just order or own. Fantastic flavor!!!!

Had Bucky Burger which was served with 11 skinny french fries for just over $10. Burger is good - but don't understand the fry situation. If you're paying $10 for a burger you should have some fries.
