“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Had a couple of great burgers. Blueberry/Apple pie was excellent. The peanut butter brownie was also very good. Server was very friendly and knowlegeable about the menu. Stopped there a few times for lunch and desserts - good atmosphere, food was delish, and service excellent.

“A bit expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Decent service and nice ambiance, but the food was expensive for what you received. My spinach and strawberry salad was about 1.5-2x what it would have cost at home, but when on vacation...
We did all share a Chocolate moose cake at the Chocolate Moose...my kids thought that was very funny and the four of us gobbled it up!

“Lunch was good, breakfast ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

My husband and I each had a burger for lunch. The service was fast, which was nice as we were both hungry. The breakfast was ok but nothing fancy. I had the french toast and scrambled eggs. The french toast was a little to thick of a slice and underdone. I think it would have been good had it been "toasted" longer on the griddle. My husband had big breakfast
which was pretty good.

My husband thought his breakfast was better than the lunch and I thought the lunch was better than breakfast so it was a 50/50 for us as to what meal was better.

Again it would be great if the town of Ely would allow dogs on the patios at restaurants. It's about the only thing we didn't like in the town of Ely.

“Chocolate dessert to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We stopped here to hear the two musicians - a fiddler and guitar player - do their wonderful music. The walleye sandwich was excellent. Prices were a little higher than we were used to, but the atmosphere and food quality made up for it. A nice treat!

“Pretty average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We had heard lots of good reviews. Maybe it was an off day, but there was nothing special about our breakfast. The service was slow and everything was very bland and basic.
