Great Food, great service. The best part is the feel around you, it's like a old fashioned great feel. I love everything about the place, I did not have to wait long for the food. I love it so much, our family has been going here for 63 years, this is the place to go for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

A group of us stopped at the Rockwood after spending the morning at the bear center. The food and service were really good and we had a great time visiting. Rustic decor was fun as well

We had a great time and the food was terrific. Even the kids in the group loved their food. I have had a variety of entrees and burgers over several visits and always order the Rockwood salad as a side. Wait staff has always been prompt and friendly.

This is more than just a Burger Restaurant. They have much more on the menu than burgers, and a very good selection of beers as well. Continuing our search for a good walleye meal, we found it here. The Parmesan Garlic Walleye dish was excellent as were the side dishes. The service was prompt, friendly and courteous.

Went to grab a bite to eat at this place and found out by waitress that they were limited on items both at the bar and in the kitchen because it was the last day they were open for the season. A sign outside alerting customers to this prior to us going in would have been nice.

We 3 guys ate here before shoving off on our 8 day Boundary Waters canoe trip. We had burgers which were very solid and if we had more time, we would have tried other menu items as they all looked very good. The beers were delicious and the service was friendly and good. We sat outside which was a nice... More

We just had the burgers, but they were both outstanding, and the service was excellent as well. We sat outside under a huge shaded awning. Really can't be beat for a casual dining experience in Ely.

My wife and I stopped here for a beer while we were visiting the shops in Ely. We had a very nice table outside, near the waterfall. I was trying to decide between two craft beers that I hadn't tried before. I asked the the server if I could get a sample of each before I ordered a whole pint... More
