Great stop for lunch on a sunny day

Very good menu of apps, lunch items and dinners. Great view from the patio if you're lucky enough to get a seat outside. Had the Smoked Salmon App, very good! Kids loved the wild rice soup. Definitely recommend for lunch. Good stop.

My husband the hunters pie with elk meat, kind of like a Shepard pie. It was very tasty. The crappy bread sticks could have been left been left in the kitchen or the freezer. Salad bar was above average especially since it had pickled herring. I had the salmon and I specifically asked that it not be overcooked. Big mistake... More

The view was nice however there are limited tables outside. The screened in porch was okay. As a family of four we felt it was pricey for nothing special food. The lefse was thick and dry. The service was nothing to write home about. The drinks were $6-7 which seemed overpriced for the North Woods!

Ate at the Northern Lights passing through heading up the drive. Our first choice was a small restaurant the had a 20 minute wait for lunch so we landed here. We were seated in the back on the screamed in porch. Good view of Lake Superior and is situated in some nice natural landscape. The tables/chairs are common cheap patio... More

Huge menu. Great food. Casual atmosphere. Can dine in or out. A plus for a lakeside restaurant. Make a point to stop here every time we visit the north shore.

We stopped for lunch mainly because the sign mentioned great views and we were hungry. The view was lovely and the food was good. My husband had a sandwich called a Black Russian which he said was very good. I had a cranberry chicken sandwich which I really enjoyed. The sandwich was your basic grilled chicken but served on a...

Amazing view of Lake Superior from up above. Seating available in and outside. Wonderful gardens outside along with a small fountain. A large variety of different food available. Both of us had great meals. All was very tasty. Especially loved the quiche, mango salsa, and bread sticks. Sit outside if at all possible!

This restaurant has a great view of Lake Superior and we enjoyed that very much. The service was GREAT. The food could have been better, we rate it as average and not too much of a value. But with the view and the service it helped make it fine!
