I visit the Rockwood every summer during vacation and always enjoy the experience. I love their creamy wild rice soup, but was sad that they no longer have their nachos on the appetizer menu. Regardless I will return again next summer to dine on the...More

Rockwood has a server who is gluten free-and is the only one we've found who 'gets it' here. If you ask for her, you'll have smooth sailing. (I was served a pile of gluten-coated onions on a burger the time before this.) But be warned:...More

In town for only 1 night, and this place was busy on a Tuesday around 6:30P so that must mean: the food is good, right? Well it was. We split the Cornish game hen & had good service.

After driving all day, we went for soup/salad. Their wild rice soup is yummy. Portions are perfect. Their patio is really nice and the service was great.

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.

Went there twice on this visit to Ely. Love the decor, looks very cozy. We had a party of 4 and all our meals were good. Service was good, too. They have a outdoor area but Ely can be pretty buggy so we ate inside....More
