This place was able to accommodate our large family for a weekend dinner on short notice. The staff was very helpful and professional. Food was American traditional with good beers and a good selection so that everyone found something they liked. Food was prepared well and served quickly. Great... read more

Overpriced - people could say it's a tourist trap, food was ok. Chairs were very uncomfortable. Hostess could use a smile but male server was very good.

This restaurant is very close to the Days Inn (where we stayed) so we really appreciated finding a great restaurant so close by. The decor is very "up north." Nice friendly bar, great variety of menu selections, and really attentive service. Give it a try!

Great log cabin "Up North" dining experience. Loved the house salad and the walleye sandwich. Rustic decor is a perfect fit for a night out in the north woods. Service was great and food was delicious.

I had it beer battered. It comes with a generous portion of homemade chips. They were tasty. My companion had two apps (it was happy hour): fish tacos and smoked chicken quesadilla - both delicious.

For the price not impressed. Mixed vegetables some over cooked and some under. Ordered he fillet very bland, over cooked, the baked potato was very under cooked. $30 fillet with what tasted like soy sauce as opposed to Demi.

I ordered the 1/2 sandwich (Reuben) and the lobster bisque. Both were very delicious!!!! The price on that was reasonable. There are more spendy items as well. Very nice atmosphere.

Stopped by for a quick lunch after a visit to Fleet Farm. Had the Ghost Burger with Fries. I enjoy spicy food & that it was. Service was great. Tammy did a fantastic job. Quick, friendly & attentive. Highly recommend.
