Let me start by saying that the Steak House has been our "go to" restaurant in Ely for several years, but based on our last two visits we won't be heading back anytime soon. I'm not sure what has happened to the service, but we waited over an hour for our food on consecutive visits in June and July. Now,... More

We were looking for a Walleye dinner and found it here. Delicious. Service was good and all reasonably priced. We'll be back.

Not just steak. They have garden burgers, salad, broasted chicken, soups and walleye. Free pool table to play after dinner. Great service- thanks Molly. Free parking and old school charm.

Ok, this place is old. I figured it would be really great or not so good. The interior is dark and completely out dated. Did not look or feel clean. Probably better served with just the bar and burger offerings. I ordered a rib steak medium rare with a baked potato. My husband ordered the filet medium rare. Mine was... More

Had a very good meal. The walleye was very tasty. Service is very good also. Would like to try to try their steak next time. We had the Walleye since that is not something we can get where we live.

We have to come up once a year just for the Bucky Burger. We find some other activity as an excuse, but this is the real reason we want to come! Yum.
