Great Stop on east end of Picture Rock Lakeshore

Stopped here for lunch after multiple hiking in the park. The burgers were very good. Beer selection was limited but very good IPA and Stout. Slightly crowded the day we strolled in do to the fall colors.

Holy crap this is one of the best places I've ever eaten at!! Great wait staff, outstanding grub. Homemade everything even the root beer! We can't wait to go back.

Went for dinner with a friend, server friendly and helpful with menu. I ordered chicken strip basket/fries, chicken strips good as was their homemade honey mustard dip, fries were awful! Tasted like they had been cooked ahead & then reheated, not crispy or hot, perhaps changing the cooking oil would help. My friend ordered her burger med. It came out... More

It was very busy when we visited in August and they were totally understaffed. Pizza was fair, lots of flies in there. Might be better in the off season.

This place is definitely not worth the drive to Grand Marais. This was a second visit to this Brewery, with the first being about eight years ago. That experience was just as bad as this one; however we were hoping and willing to give this place another shot. That visit resulted in receiving no service either. First of all, when... More

Come up Nov.6 to the 8, for my late birthday visit. Surprised some of the employees there, Ryan m., and I had good food, and good beer, and a lot of fun.

The employees were all pleasant, the food good, but Regrettably, each time we'd go there to eat, the 'famous for' choices were never available. We had a pizza on our last night, it was very good.

We came here because we love craft brews. We would return because the food was above average. I had the broiled whitefish and the seasonings were spot on - not too much, not too little. The fish was fresh, flaky and very tasty. My husband had a sandwich - can't remember which one, but he also raved about his meal... More

Dining area with poor lighting. Staff not overly friendly/welcoming to out of towners. Menu - so - so with offerings. Typical bar food. Prices good.

I stopped in for lunch after a morning of hiking in Pictured Rocks. Ordered a bowl of their garlic popcorn, which is an obsession of mine. Then had the salad bar for lunch. Nothing fancy but it was good eats. Topped off with a glass of their blueberry ale made for a good lunch.
