We arrived later in the evening and were very pleased that we could order anything we wanted from the menu. We sat at a table but could have sat at the bar and felt right at home. The food was great, portions were huge and we were pleased. Service was excellent and enjoyed the country music playing in the background.

I enjoyed my beer, the waitress was very friendly, the food was great! I'd come back, especially in the summer to sit out on the patio!

We had dinner on a Tuesday night and we super impressed with how kind and friendly the staff was. The chili was fabulous as was the tomato soup - well worth the stop in!

Ely is a quaint little town we were visiting and were looking for someplace to have supper and happened upon Racks Bar and Grill. The atmosphere is cozy and warm and the staff is very friendly. The menu is extensive so a bit of a challenge to order something, as it all looked so good. I must add that they... More

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
