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!

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
