Good atmosphere, prompt service. Tasty food - something for everyone. We had a burger and fries, and meatballs marinara with penne. Choice of beers, including IPA. Very friendly customers.

Upon entering you may think its small from the outside but once you step inside its awesome. You may choose to either eat or drink outside on the back patio or inside. The menu i think is the best in Ely with food items of all types at affordable prices. You will find some hard work going into the food... More

We were in town for one night and read good reviews. It is a local spot with good atmosphere. We wanted a hamburger and a salad and some cocktails, so this seemed to be the ticket. It's in a cute, old part of town past the cemetery and some cute motels we'd like to try. We got a burger, chef's... More

You can tell that the Locals hang out here often the place was crowded and in good spirits. We brought our kids and had a large party of eight with our friends. Service was good and food tasted great. We had to have the waitress recalculate our bill because she charged us twice for a few things but other than... More

OK...one reason we stopped was because after 2 weeks in Utah, we were ready for a real beer. We saw it was highly rated, and the food did not disappoint. The Nevada Cheesesteak sandwiches we had were the best food on our trip. And no, that's not the greater-than-3.2 beer talking. It was nice to be in a place that... More

Tired after a long drive - thought this would be a decent option. And it would have been fine, but very limited menu - meat, meat, meat and fried, No veggies?

This is a favorite of the locals and was recommended by our hotel. We were not disappointed. They have a large, varied menu. We enjoyed our selection very much and it was very reasonably priced. Good recommendation!

Ice cold beer and excellent bloody Mary's! Philly cheese steak, rueben, chicken fingers and onion rings. All excellent! All servers are courteous, but our favorite server is Mindy! Efficient, friendly and very attentive.
