“Mmm - Dessert!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

The restaurant is on the main street in Ely, very easy to get to. Every time we went past it, it was packed. We ate outside, which was just as crowded as inside. Not the place for a quiet leisurely lunch. We all ordered burgers, which took a long time to come – close to 30 minutes. They were good, but not exceptional. Desserts were better. We had the chocolate layer cake and the BIG homemade chocolate chip cookie.

“Chocolate Moose is our favorite spot”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I have been going to Ely for years and this is always a stop for us. The Pie is FANTASTIC but get there early so you can have your choice! Love the food and atmosphere. Love Ely. Love the Moose!

“Great deserts!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Limited and tight seating. No public restroom so you have to go to the store next door which was so bad because Piragis was pretty cool.

“A friendly and quaint place in the Northwoods”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The Chocolate Moose is located in a log building well-suited for its place in Ely, Minnesota. The menu is extensive, with a great bar, as well. Visitors and locals can enjoy a great meal in this unique setting. The Moose is probably most well known for its breakfast menu, but lunch and dinner menus have great selections. The daily salad, pasta, and desert selections are certain to please just about any customer.
