We stopped here for a quick lunch on the patio last week after vacationing at a nearby resort. Service was extremely attentive and friendly. Blueberry salad was delicious, with fresh greens. Stuffed avocados were fantastic. Kids had burgers and fresh cut fries. Food delivered in under 20 minutes. We will be back again, keep up the great work!

This is the perfect place to stop for drinks, appetizers, or a full meal. The outdoor patio is especially great on a warm summer day. The attention to detail with the food and also the outdoor space is second to none. A "must stop" while in Ely!!!

Relaxing environment. Great food. Cloth napkins. A special place in Ely. Menu is varied. No problem splitting a dinner with companion.

Nice selection of draft beers. Comfortable outdoor patio. Great service. Smoked wings were a good appetizer. Smoked pork chop with root beer glaze was excellent. Tasty gluten free buns for burgers.

First visit two months ago was very nice; return visit had us experience food that was not hot, food order was not fulfilled correctly by the kitchen, and condiment order was not filled correctly by our server - and the restaurant was pretty much empty; the IPA selection was poor; they seem to advertise more draft beer selections than they...

It had been many years since my husband and I had been to Ely. We stopped in to have a beverage (or two)! We were greeted in the bar area with the most friendly entertaining bartenders Shannon and Julia(sorry if I spelled that incorrectly). The service these young ladies provided was exceptional. They made excellent recommendations on both food and... More

This place was awesome. We had to get out of a bad thunderstorm and landed here for lunch. So glad we did. The hamburgers are excellent and the people are really nice!
