Stopped in on a Saturday around noon and it was packed- and for good reason. Had two salads- both were incredibly fresh with very juicy grilled chicken. And good cornbread (though a little on the dry side). Great service as well.

Great food and service, and all around fun atmosphere. Quite a bit of food for the price, will definitely go back!

We picked up lunch today at The Chocolate Moose. Delicious chicken quesadillas, burger and to top it off - my hubby and I shared pieces of blueberry and apple/peach pie. Service was fast and friendly and atmosphere casual and inviting. Fun place!

The Chocolate Moose is misspelled. The Chocolate Mousse Cake is what it should be. Seriously, the sandwiches are excellent and the chocolate mousse cake was delicious. The locals seemed to agree that lunch at Moose or the Mousse is a treat.

We order burgers with a side of fruits (just a piece of watermelon). They were just OK. Nothing to write home about. We also tried the red fruits pie with vanilla ice cream. It was very good. Not too sweet, well balanced with real fresh fruits. Terrible service. Server wasn't attentive.

It was the 4th of July holiday and this place was packed! But no problem for the staff as we were promptly seated and served. The chicken quesadilla's were OUTSTANDING and fresh squeezed lemonade delightful. Our server attended to our every need and was terrific. The pie selection was amazing (blueberry + a lot of mixed fruit) and it was... More

Walleye cakes were very good and spicy. Soups were also spot on. And pies were delicious. Entrees had something for everyone and pretty healthy too. Outdoor seating was a plus.

Whether it's wild rice pancakes, omelettes and/or coffee, breakfast in the log cabin Moose is a fabulous place to gather.

The folks at the CM made a real impression on us 2 years ago when we stopped with our kids for lunch, and once again they did a great job. The food tasted great, even if my potatoes were a bit overdone, and the staff was great about answering questions and seeing to our needs. Yes, it was a bit... More
