We went here for dinner, my sister said they were the best burgers around, So busy we had to wait for 45 minutes but that is expected on a Saturday night in a resort town. We had a cold beer while we waited and all was good. The menu has a huge variety of burgers and their burgers are HUGE... More

This place has about 50 burgers on the menu and they all start at 1/2 pound but the server said "sometimes they are bigger because they really don't weigh them." You can order a "wimpy version" for $1.50 less. 3 of us dined and had different burgers and each picked a different side so we could taste them all. I... More

I was surprised how few restaurants actually have lake views in Ely so we were lucky to find this place. It is definitely out of the way but well worth finding. There is a large outside deck plus a quaint lodge-style dining room. The have an almost endless selection of hamburgers and they are HUGE. I finished a stuffed burger... More

Sometimes they are open....sometimes they are not... You cannot go by the hours they post online. Food is good but unlikely to return since you never know if they will be open or not.

This place is famous for their burgers especially the monster burger named the Sasquatch ! Some people tried, very few succeeded! 4 lbs of meat, 1 lb of cheese burger!!! We've been here before and had their "normal" size burgers but we wanted to try the item for which they've become famous and *should* be featured on the TV series... More

Ok, you better come hungry for one of the GREAT BURGERS OF ALL TIME!! They are so huge you will be hard pressed to finish it. Unreal quality. Service is slow (very) but the food makes up for it.

Went for lunch to this highly recommended hamburger restaurant...home of 50 different burgers. We ordered the wimpy size and it was still the biggest burger I ever saw. The burger was excellent and included awesome onion rings and a quart of freshly brewed ice tea. Best hamburger meal ever. I'd recommend sharing a burger.
