We waited a long time to get a waitress. Waited well OVER AN HOUR for our appetizer. Food came at 90 minutes...all on a Saturday night. Lots of unhappy customers around us tonight. They Definitely were not prepared for a summer Saturday night business.

Stopped here for dinner with a group of friends and family after a week eating backcountry food in the boundary waters. The food was good, and the service was average. One of your better choices in Ely.
