Make reservations

Service was good. Restaurant was small, so if you want to go for supper make reservations. You can also eat in the lounge, they have the same menu. Food was good.

We have stayed at the Grand Ely Lodge for a week every summer for 14 years. The food and drink services at Evergreen (and next door bar Antlers) have always been a great part of our stay. The deck seating gives you a beautiful view of the lake and scenery, with spectacular sunsets. We have eaten here with other family... More

We stop here at least once every visit to Ely for the soup and more. We have never had a bad meal here. Great view if you get a window seat all times of the year. They also have free WiFi.

The food was hot and tasty. Amount was good for lunch. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Also gave us suggestions on our meal! Very nice young man. Wish I would have gotten his name to post it on here.

When the restaurant is slow, service is even slow. We wanted to get in and out so we could do some activities and for a long time the wait staff disappears. When asked why service was sooooooo slow, they said it wasn't slow. What? 45 minutes to get served breakfast after ordering? Then to get check was another long way.... More

While catching up on some laundry we came across The Ely Echo's Restaurant Guide. While scanning the pages of local menus we were impressed by the Grand Ely Lodge's breakfast line up. The locals at the laundry all gave it two thumbs up. In fairness, one of the patrons was a waitress at the lodge. The bacon and cheese omelet... More

The GEL's food offerings used to be kinda notorious amongst locals for being, er, variable. But I have been there four times this fall/winter, thrice for banquets, and have been very pleasantly surprised. Usually, large goups are impossible to feed well, but they did a very good job. Even the relative mob of 150 was very well handled and the... More

I visited Ely and was taken here by friends in early September. We started out in the bar and out on the back deck around sunset. We had a nice view and good beers with plenty of good popcorn to go with it. We moved inside to the restaurant for dinner. Service from both the bar and restaurant was quick... More
