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.
Grab a cold beverage, enjoy a savory sandwich, and take in the view of Shagawa Lake indoors or from the deck—it’s a great place to converse with guests and locals alike. Antlers Lounge is a relaxed Ely, MN bar that serves up the town’s best wine list, specialty drinks, and most impressive lake views.
Order one of our four beers on tap or choose one of our wide range of bottled brews, including local favorites like Iron Range Amber, James Page and Nordeast. Add one of our specialty sandwiches – try the Caesar Prime Rib Sandwich, Shagawa Combo, or Fish In The Weeds and nine flavors of wings to create the perfect lakeside experience. For our sports fans, munch on free popcorn and watch your favorite team play on our four flat-screen TV’s, while for all families, children under the age of ten eat for free from our kids menu.
Antlers Lounge is a place to enjoy great company, beautiful views and a good time—join us soon at our bar in Ely, Minnesota.
