We always stop here either on the way in or on the way out of the Boundary Waters, and sometimes both. It never disappoints. They cook a good ribeye, and the Bucky Burger is great. Staff is friendly.

I actually ordered a walleye basket here because I didn't feel hungry enough to eat a steak. The fish was excellent. The salads were great. I would easily consider eating here again.

We chose the steakhouse for dinner while visiting Ely and were not disappointed. The menu had plenty of choices and our selections of Walleye and a filet were both excellent. Cocktails were well made and the service was timely.
