We had a fine ribeye (cooked to medium rare--just as we'd ordered) and the very hard-to-find "broasted chicken"--which was done expertly. We were a tad disappointed in the au gratin potatoes, but everything else was excellent. The "by the glass" assortment of wines was also very good, and the bartender made a fine Martini.

We came on a fairly busy weekend night. When patiently waiting for a seat, the hostess was rather rude when I chose to wait for a restaurant table rather than a high top. I was with a six year old child and didn't think a high top would work well. We weren't rushing her but she apparently didn't like that.... More

The Ely Steakhouse is the year round big gun in Ely. Always busy with great food and prices. Try the Bucky Burger for the best in a burger anywhere. Large enough for business meetings as well as big groups for dining. Love the place!

This place has been around for years & years. Other restaurants come & go but the Ely Steakhouse remains. Yes, it gets crowded so it's best to go on an "off day" or get there a bit early than usual dinner time. Which is exactly what our family did. We were a party of 4, hubby, myself & 2 20... More

The bar keep was really busy, but we did get or drinks after a little bit of a wait. Lots of people working but one bartender and someone else jumped in to help him. I had the hearing and it was good but was short on the amount on my plate for the price. My wife had a salad and... More

My wife and I had dinner here on Wed night, Aug 31. We were both hungry for steak, but didn't really want to both spend $15+ on a steak, so we split their best selling sirloin meal. It came with a salad that we split and a loaf of bread with honey butter. Both were great! They split the steak... More

We were seated in the very bright dining room for dinner. The waitress happily dimmed the lights for us. Our salads were excellent but the Walleye dinner was so salty that it burned the inside of my mouth. After one bite, I informed the waitress and she returned it to the kitchen. The waitress then stated that I was the... More
