We have been here a few times and always had great food, this time was no different. The Stuffed hash browns were great (Little Long) and the pan cakes for the kids could have been split in two. Food service for Ely and always a great view. Skip Rockwoods and their long waits for high bills come here!

Every place has it's niche and this little restaurant has mastered the hamburger. About fifty choices of burgers and they are very big, even the "wimpy version"! Along with sandwiches, there is breakfast and supper on the menu too. We all brought leftovers back to the cabin and even the next day the burgers and fries and onion rings were really good reheated for lunch! If the owner is there, you will be greeted by his friendly dogs, so if you are not into having a gentle labrador sit at your feet while you eat, don't eat outside on the deck.
But, do eat outside on the deck, with it's view of the lake, and rustic seating, a real treat for weary travelers.
The Stony Ridge Resort consists of cabins, tent and RV spots, and this nice little cafe. It's worth the effort to locate it, on the banks of Lake Shagawa, outside Ely.

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor while trying to find a dinner option while on vacation. We walked in and were not initially sure the place was really that good. The reviews were so right. Unbelievably delicious burgers, perfect fries, it was was wonderful. The decor is nothing to write home about, but that isn't why you are there--- you are there for the great food. Definitely will be back when we return to Ely! Yumm!

If you really fancy a huge burger than you can do no better than go to Stony Ridge for one. This is by no means a fancy place ( drinks are served in Redneck wine glasses - ie. jam jars) but the food is both high in quality and quantity. The menu consists mainly of burgers of which the choice is endless. If you fancy a challenge you could try the Sasquatch, with 4 lb of meat, 1 lb of cheese and 1 lb of sides !!
My advice would be to skip breakfast and lunch and to not expect to eat breakfast and lunch the following day.
It may be advisable to book a table as this place is always busy.
For those with a less hearty appetite the establishment does accommodate the splitting of dishes. A basic half pound burger starts at just under $.10.
