The food was average and the wait staff was good for the most part. We had one waitress that was a bit confused by our voucher from the hotel but it was cleared up quickly. I would recommend getting the breakfast burrito, it was very good. Would have liked to see more fruit on the breakfast menu. Drinks at the... More

Nice restaurant and staff, great food and a beautiful view of Lake Superior and it was fun watching all the hummingbirds at the feeders in the windows.

No prize for decor, and a bit on the chilly side, but our server was a nice young girl who took our order promptly. We tried walleye fingers, and they were hot and delicious, devoured by our children. At half price appetizers, they would have been a great meal paired with a side. Nothing we had was food service variety,... More

Cascade Pub and Restaurant is a great place to go to for any meal. They have excellent food at a good price. They also have a great selection of beers and drinks, also reasonably priced. They do get very busy at times and you might wait for a while, but I thought they did a wonderful job all around. They... More

We stopped for lunch and it was the worst lunch I have ever had.. The oil for the fish and chips was old, and the fish was swimming in it...It was so greasy it was inedible. The French Dip was dry and tasteless..the Patty Melt overcooked and flavorless...this was the worst food I have eaten in a very long time

First, I am truly sorry you did not enjoy any of the meals. It is very unusual for our guests to dislike our Friday special, the fish n' chips. I can assure you that the oil we use is clean. We use a beer batter on the fish (the same recipe we have used for many years) and then the... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review telling us (and others!) what you liked about our Restaurant and Pub! Our Reuben is very popular as we slow cook our corn beef and hand shred it! We are happy you liked it! More

We had a group of 9 passing through the area & stopped for breakfast. The staff was very slow and appeared surprised that the restaurant was busy on a Saturday morning. We were told that we could not order any lunch items at 1045 am, since lunch was not served until 11 am. Our waitress was overwhelmed and took several... More

I am very sorry that you did not have a good experience at our Restaurant. We always expect to be busy in the summer, and we are! Lunch is not served until 11am, although sometimes our cooks are able to satisfy special requests prior to 11am - which we usually try to do. If, however, we are very busy, then... More

Walleye sandwich was great. Beautiful view of lake. Prices reasonable. Service poor. No drink refills and had to flag down for check. Corned beef salad sandwich was the special and was very bland.

We were very happy to find this place. The prices for the breakfasts were quite a bit better than at the surrounding places we tried and the food was very good.

Great service! Front windows look towards Lake Superior with Hummingbird feeders hanging outside attracting the Hummingbirds to fly around giving a nice view of wildlife and the Lake. Salad bar was ok. Chicken Alfredo ok. My husband said his breaded fish was good.
