We made reservations on Fathers Day, planning on their Broasted Chicken only to find out they were out of chicken. I understand this, however the server said they ran out the day before. After being a restaurant owner-manager I find this inexcusable, as there is a grocery less than a mile away. We frequent this this restaurant and will continue... More

The Evergreen Restaurant is in the Grand Ely Lodge. There is a bar/pub area (full bar) and a separate dining room. There is a balcony for summer seating; on Valentine's Day it had had a view of the frozen Shagawa Lake and gentle snow – very snow-globe like! Seating was prompt (with reservation) and service was quick. A carafe of... More

Great meal! Had the prime rib and it was delicious! We have had hit or miss meals here the last few years but it has been very good the last two times we have been here and it will make us go back. My wife had the turkey panini sandwich and really enjoyed it. A very good dining experience!!

My wife and children recently ate here and had a very good meal. I had the French Dip which was very tasty and my wife had a panini from the bar menu and enjoyed it. Both of my children had pasta and were filled up. A great dining experience.

They had great breakfast at a reasonable price. The wait after ordering was a little long (longer than what I am used to). The food was very good. I'd eat here again (just not if I'm in a rush).

We both ordered the 10 oz "Queen Cut" instead of the larger portion. The slab of delicious meat on our plates was much, much larger than 10 ounces was perfectly prepared.

We have stayed at the Grand Ely Lodge for a week every summer for 14 years. The food and drink services at Evergreen (and next door bar Antlers) have always been a great part of our stay. The deck seating gives you a beautiful view of the lake and scenery, with spectacular sunsets. We have eaten here with other family... More

Service was good. Restaurant was small, so if you want to go for supper make reservations. You can also eat in the lounge, they have the same menu. Food was good.
