We've been to most of the restaurants in Ely, MN, and this is our favorite. The food is nothing fancy, but consistently good. On our most recent visit, we had a large group (8), and everyone enjoyed their food. The restaurant is very clean, with...More

I was by myself so sat at the bar. Had good service from the tender. Ordered the soft pretzel and cheese app. Came quickly, and was tasty. Good selection of craft beers. I'll stop back if in Ely again.

Good beer menu, standard food. Live music was fun. I enjoyed being able to sit on a patio. Great service. Would go back but my preference would be to try a new restaurant as there are a lot of options in Ely!

Had a wonderful meal and drinks on the patio in beautiful weather, courtesy of server Shelly. We each had fresh salads, one with flat iron steak and one with grilled chicken. New seasonal tap from Castle Danger regional microbrewery was great.
