What does someone coming from a paddle around the Boundary Waters want, sometimes more than a shower; of course a cold beer and a great steak!
Established at the top of Sheridan street in 1997, the Ely Steak House provides that and much more. There are however, if you look around the dining rooms and lounge, a lot of people enjoying the food, who have never taken up a paddle.
The “Kick Butt” steaks do exactly that. You will find yourself comparing any future steak or burger to what you had at the Steak House. Everything else on the menu lives up to those standards, and everyone has a favorite. From the famous “Bucky“ burger, and giant walleye sandwiches, to the great desserts and fresh coffee.
The Ely Steak House has over fifty different bottled beers to offer and seven delicious draft beers, including our signature Dark Oatmeal Stout "Steer Beer". There is also a marvelous wine selection to compliment any meal.
Still the Steak House is a family restaurant. Its amazing to see the children raised on fast food burgers suddenly faced with a real burger and fries.
Our wait staff happily greets you at the door, and are dedicated to making your visit the best it can be. There are no forced smiles at the Ely Steak House, we mean it.
The Steak House is a cool oasis in the heat of summer, always air conditioned, and a cozy retreat in the winter. Grab a seat in the lounge next to the fireplace and enjoy a hot beverage. The lounge is the place to be every night of the week, with events like Karaoke, Open Mic Night, Bar Bingo Fridays, and Tuesday Night Trivia!! Bring the whole gang, there is a spacious banquet room that can accommodate groups of twenty or more.
So if you have just come in from a nine day paddle, spent the day shopping the quaint local shops, or have been stomping through the Blueberry Arts Festival, stop at the Ely Steak House for fabulous, fresh homemade northwoods food, and genuinely great service.
Our restaurant is open seven days a week, from 11am to 10pm, and the Lounge remains open until 1am.
