We visited Ely and the Rockwood on a Tuesday night. Nice menu selection and good food. Patio was nice to sit on and there was a band playing. Nice atmosphere and good service.

I was by myself so sat at the bar. Had good service from the tender. Ordered the soft pretzel and cheese app. Came quickly, and was tasty. Good selection of craft beers. I'll stop back if in Ely again.

I visit the Rockwood every summer during vacation and always enjoy the experience. I love their creamy wild rice soup, but was sad that they no longer have their nachos on the appetizer menu. Regardless I will return again next summer to dine on the...More

Rockwood has a server who is gluten free-and is the only one we've found who 'gets it' here. If you ask for her, you'll have smooth sailing. (I was served a pile of gluten-coated onions on a burger the time before this.) But be warned:...More
