This sit-down restaurant and bar has been around for over 25 years. One side features a restaurant, the other a bar. This is literally one of the primary hubs of life in Ellsworth. As for the food, they offer a wide variety of home-cooked meals. They offer American and Mexican food. I like their chicken-fried steaks, while my wife could live on their bean tostados, which are served on a deep fried flour shell. Best of all, the prices are dirt cheap. You can feed three people for less than $15.
Ok folks! This steakhouse is a little diamond in the rough! We went for Valentines because I had a Resturant.com gift certificate! (BTW, that's a great way to try new places!). And we will definitely be back again! Location is great, right on 156 highway so you don't have to wander down into town! We live 45 miles southwest! They were absolutely maxed out tonight due to the holiday, so it was a good thing we had called and reserved a table! They were very attentive to our table and the little longer wait to get our food was definitely worth it! We ordered the Grand Margarita which was touted on the bar menu as a secret recipe, however I watched the bartender and did not see him add anything but lime, bottled mixer and tequila to the shaker of ice! If he'd give me a call I could tell him some great ways to really make it Grand! But it was very tasty, served naked (no ice) so we got a lot of margarita for our $5. The prime rib was tender, juicy and flavorful! Couldn't ask for more! And congrats to the chef for not overpowering the plate with a monster baked potato which happens so often elsewhere! It was the perfect complimentary size for the cut of beef! The waitress told us the veggie of the day was green beans almondine but there were sugar snap peas on my plate! Delicious ones (actually like them better than beans so no problem for me!). In the rush of serving more guests than they are used to, they missed getting a basket of bread to us but we didn't miss it til we were almost done, so no biggie!!! They just need a little fine tuning to compete with any big city steakhouse within a hundred miles! Over all even with the minor flubs, I give them a five star review just because everything tasted soooo good and they were so attentive and cordial! If you are a stickler for fast service, go somewhere else, but if you want to feel good about eating some really tasty fare and take the time to enjoy every bite, then stop in at the Ellsworth Steakhouse when you're in the area! It's worth it, for sure!
A wonderful family gathering at a wonderful restaurant. With family from out of town (Calif, Oklahoma, Colorado, Virginia) it was great to find a place that could handle us all. The prime rib was very good - and the service was fantastic. We used the side room and there was plenty of space for the bunch of us. And, it was beautifully decorated with flowers and candles. Big servings meant that we didn't have room for desert, but still we had to share one of each so we all got a spoonful of the goodness. Thank you for making out family gathering extra special.
Great food. The interior nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. Definetly a diamond in the rough.
I'm not just a fan, I'm a pretty big fan. I find myself thinking about this little pizza spot tucked in the bowling alley. The family and I went here on the suggestion of a stranger. You know how us Yelpers roll. He said "try the calzone. You'll love it! I love it!" I said hey, why not since it's only one of two options for pizza and we get the other option all of the time. We really enjoyed it a lot. My daughter ate all of her calzone which is saying a lot since she kept saying how she wasn't hungry at all. My son loved his also. Then we shared a pizza and the crust was buttery and soft. The toppings were pretty tasty also. It certainly had more flavor going for it than what we are used to when we come here. My kids requested that this be our new pizza place when we visit. They don't care what the other people we are hanging with decide to eat. They are sold on Gambino's.
