We chose the 40$ hand-cut Delmonico For Two. I don't think I exaggerate if I say that half of it was inedible fat. The portion of french fries was also very small. We both left hungry, and we are not big eaters. So we feel cheated.

A last minute Saturday lunch stop that netted some good food and drink. Tasty Bloody Mary, lots of variety choices. Delicious walleye! Solid steaks with nice add-ons. All in an old timey steakhouse atmosphere. We left well fed and well cared for!

We ate a late lunch here. The bartender was super awesome. perhaps our experience would have been better had we ate at the bar. Our waitress appeared to be worn out, she was not very welcoming and was quite abrupt with us. My husband even made the comment that they must be tired after the summer of tourists. The interior...

We came to Ely Steak House after being on Boundary Waters for a week. After a week of freeze dried food and granola bars, the 16 of us were ready for some real food. The Ely Steak House did not disappoint! The service was great and the food was delicious. Thank you Ely Steak House for taking us without reservations,... More

We ate here for one of our dinners in Ely. My sister ate the filet mignon with a baked potato and salad. I had grilled salmon with a hollandaise sauce on wild rice pilaf and a salad. The server brought us a small loaf of freshly baked bread. My sister's meat was very tender. My salmon was a bit dry... More

We were really hungry after our hike and the fish and chips were great. We ate in the bar and our server was great too. Their house red wine was good as well. Seemed kinda like a local hang out, not fancy. From the outside it appears to be one of the older buildings on the main street, the inside... More

I recently dined at the Ely Steakhouse and was very pleased with the entire experience. I ordered the Walleye Basket (their version of Fish and Chips). It was delicious! My friend ordered a burger (hand-pattied) which she also enjoyed very much. She actually said that it was the best burger she had ever had! The server was very pleasant (very... More

Visiting during our honeymoon/vacation and was not disappointed by the amazing meal we had at the Ely Steak House! Be prepared to pay for it though! We over ate and had to walk off our meals 😃 good thing the Blueberry Festival was going on in town to give us something to do!

Way To Go Canoe recommended the Ely Steak House to us while we were out with them on a canoe trip. We called for reservations, since the Blueberry Festival was going on that day. The restaurant had our table reserved and seated us immediately. Service was fast and friendly. It was the perfect meal after spending a day on the... More

My steak was done exactly as ordered. Our server was very professional. The wild rice soup had a lot to be desired. The warm loaf of bread brought to the table was very good.
