Hey Y'all,

Wanted to check in and see what Restaurants (if any) were open for dining? I know last year most places were available for carry-out, but I'm hoping to be able to sit down at Ely Steakhouse with a few buddies.

At the end of the day though, I'm just happy all the businesses I've asked the outfitter back are still open and made it through Covid so far.

Thank You for any feedback and good luck to everyone making a trip this year!

At first I was going to guess that things are back to normal in Ely since restaurants in Minnesota are open to in person dining now. Then I remembered this story about a big Covid outbreak in Ely, so I do not have an answer for you. The outbreak was in March so there is a good chance that things have improved now.

My friend told me the churches are still in lock down. So the restaurants might be too.

I was there Friday. Everything was open from what I could tell.

Britton's just opened on Saturday May 1. Will be opening at 5:30 am daily. Seems to me it always used to be 5:00 am during past summers...
