My husband and I ate dinner here today and we were both disappointed with the food. The shrimp (shrimp cocktail) had the texture of being quickly thawed, as one of the shrimp was warm. The wild rice soup had no flavor. Also no flavor in the beef stir fry and the crab stuffed walleye and the filet mignon. The wild... More

To be fair, we visited on a very busy weekend, BUT...the food was terrible (gummy, gluey pasta; inedible fish). Had to re-order our main course after being advised they were out of our original order; also had to re-order drinks three times for the same reason.

Evergreen was just OK. The service at both meals (dinner, on a crowded night, and breakfast, when we had the place to ourselves) was really slow. Breakfast was the better of the two meals - the skillets are outstanding. Dinner was OK - my prime rib was very tough.

The atmosphere was a little dated and the restaurant was stuffy looking, but the food was very good and the service was excellent! Kim was our server and she really made us feel at home. The view is also outstanding and worth having dinner there.

The food was very good and the views of Shagawa Lake are great. The service was friendly, but very slow. Had to ask several times for refills on drinks and it was not terribly busy. Server was nice and friendly, but frustratingly slow.

The food is not gourmet but tasty , plentiful and reasonable. May not be adequate for hefty appetites but for seniors it is especially attractive. The view of the Lake is lovely and surroundings and decor are very nice. An enjoyable meal.

When in Ely we usually eat at the "GEL" one or two times because I love the chicken wild rice soup. If you are there at sunset, you may be treated to a beautiful sky over Shagwa Lake. Last time we had to eat in the bar area because of a Little League dinner in the main dining area. The... More

We have been coming here to eat weekly for the months we spend at our lake home outside of Ely. Generally , we enjoy ourselves and enjoy the food. Nothing gourmet, but tasty and basic if you stick to frequently ordered entrees. Tonight was different- unexpectedly. We sat in the fireplace lobby area. Big mistake. Our server tried but we... More
