We had prime rib here and it was delicious. The restaurant had a north woods look. The whole place reeked of log cabin. Big fireplace, lots of timbers, and food reflecting the north lakes. The prime rib was cooked as ordered. The salad was crunchy and I loved it. The serving staff was attentive. Next time we are in the... More

The pan-fried walleye was delicious, and I enjoyed the rustic setting around the bar on a cold winter's night in northern Minnesota.

Food was as great as the service. Great atmosphere log cabin feel. Friendly staff. We met friends and had a great time. Could sneak a peek at the TV with sporting events around the room. Signed up for the birthday club to earn points for gift cards. We will stop back often.

We took a group of 7 of us there for Wednesday night burger night. The burgers were great and a good bargain. Lots of nummy toppings to add to them. The service was good (thank you Gabby). We sat on the bar side and it was very relaxing. We'll be back.

First...no spinach salad..out of product. Next...hungarian golash with crispy spatzle. Oh dear. Sauce was tasteless n tasted reheated. The mgr said it was frozen product that was sauteed. Just bad food...cannot imagine how this place has rated high. Horrible experience.
