We stayed at Cascade Lodge cabins and bought the breakfast package. We enjoyed having our breakfast and looking out over the rising sun on Lake Superior. The food was very good and would definitely add the package on to our stay again. We had dinner there the night we arrived and it too was very good. Unfortunately, the band was... More

The food is great. It was some of the best food I have ever had on the road. I had a dinner at another restaurant near there that cost $100 and it was not good. The food at the Cascade Lodge Restaurant was so much better, it tasted like home cooked food, and the service is great. It is a... More

Thanks for noticing that our food is home cooked! We do indeed cook the great majority of our meals from scratch and our food certified chefs take great pride in working for an establishment that has not taken the easy road of heavily processed foods. We appreciate you noticing and recommending our restaurant to other travelers in our area. Thanks... More

We had a great meal PLUS the wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. The waitress helped us decide on a meal choice. She checked with the cook to verify something we were concerned with...with a SMILE. That was greatly appreciated. And she was humorous and hard-working.

My wife and I eat at the Cascade Lodge Restaurant at least once every time we come up to the North Shore and have been very happy with our experiences here. Last week we stopped for dinner and I had the special, which was the hot roast beef sandwich. The beef was tender and portion size was ample. A bonus... More

We had breakfast here each morning of our trip (stayed @ the lodge next door). We always had good food & left full that kept us happy during our hikes (pancakes & hash a must). The waitstaff were very nice & attentive. They remembered us from the first day & were personable. Our last night (Sunday after MEA) was almost... More

The soup was amazing! I loved the sirloin soup and my hubby and son loved the Oktoberfest soup! We had a wonderful time and our server was so helpful and friendly. I was treated really well to when I disclosed I have food allergies! We will eat here again for sure when we come up north!

The location is really nice, right on 61. The food is all good qulity, nice variety for all tastes and most diets. We have been here many times since the mid sixties and while the menu has evolved as the years passed, the food has always been quite good for whatever meal we have gone for. Good steaks, fish, etc.

Thanks for mentioning the wide variety of menu options we offer. Did you know we were rated the number 1 vegetarian menu in a recent restaurant contest! We also feature fresh fish most of the summer caught right out of Lake Superior. Thanks for being a repeat customer for so many years. Maureen O'Phelan, Owner More

Stopped for lunch and had a seat at the window with a lovely view of Lake Superior and the beautiful cosmos flowering in their small front garden. The waitress was very friendly and efficient.

Thanks for your nice review of our restaurant. The Cosmo's are home grown and started in our basement from seed beginning in March! It's always exciting to see them grow all summer. Right now they are over 6 feet high! They seem to love the shore of Lake Superior as much as many of our guests do! Thanks again, Maureen... More

We stopped here for lunch and they still served breakfast till 2pm. Some of us had breakfast. They know how to cook bacon, hash browns, and toast. Well done! I don't like any of those undercooked and was so excited to see all of them nice and crispy on my plate. And the omelette was very tasty too. The club... More
