We have been to Ely several times but this our first visit to the Brewhouse. We liked the restaurant layout with a bar side and a separate dining side. The dining area was amply sized with booths and tables. Our server was prompt to our...More

Like so many small towns a side track brewery draws in many people. They offer a few of their own beers plus a full bar and restaurant. Easily they could use more staff, but it's tough to get good help up there. Their beer is...More

This place served us a fabulous walleye sandwich - a great place to dine the night before adventuring out into the wilds of the great north woods.

Just a great chill option for a reasonably priced great meal, not bar food, much better than that. Always busy, but that never slows the service. Great staff, always hustling. Broccoli slaw = perfect.

Stopped in before heading into the wilderness for 4 days. Awesome brews, delicious food. Plastic Growlers so you can have a beer that first night in the woods. I should have bought 2!

You can't go wrong here. Excellent food, excellent service. Not a beer drinker, but the extensive menu of craft beers made me wish I were!

I even went back and got a growler to go of the blueberry ale. It was absolutely delicious. The food was good a little on the greasy side I thought but it was perfect for what we were looking for

Thank you for the review, Tammy! We add a hint of Horseradish to our house made slaw dressing that gives it a slow burn and cuts down on the sweetness a bit. Some people like it and some people don't, but everyone's pallet is different!...More
