I ate here twice while skiing at Lutsen. The Eggs Benedict and hash browns breakfast was delicious. For dinner I had the steak and peppers sandwich. The steak was tender and prepared just as I asked. Other restaurants nearby are over priced, but here we got a lot of food at a good price.

This was a little far from Tofte, where we stayed for skiing Lutsen. There are only 9 or so restaurants around Lutsen. So we decided to hit this. It's not bad and it's not good. It's ok.

My wife and I stayed at Cascade Lodge for a long weekend to do some cross country skiing. When we booked our cabin we were able to add a "wine and dine" package which gave us two breakfasts and one dinner at the Cascade Lodge Restaurant. We were very pleasantly surprised as the restaurant was quite cozy and comfortable. The... More

I've been here before, mostly for Swedish pancakes, but this time we got dinner. Server was extremely patient and attentive with my five-year-old, and even put ice cubes in his hot chocolate when he told her "I like cold things." We went during happy hour and got entire flatbread pizzas for $5. I can't believe how much food the four... More

Thank you so much!! We are happy you had a great experience. We have been voted the #1 Happy Hour in the area and we think our appetizers are amazing! We built our Pub with the idea that families could enjoy the atmosphere as much as couples or singles do. Sounds like your server was great with your child! More

Enjoyed one dinner and two breakfasts in this clean, cheery spot with good service and a view of Lake Superior across the road. Biscuits and gravy were especially tasty.

The biscuits & gravy were great too. Friendly staff. Discount if staying at their lodge as well. We will eat there again, when up north.

Great place to eat, low-ish prices, happy hour with 1/2 apps and $1 off brews, nightly dinner specials (like 1/2 off burgers and such). The owner was very nice.

Had the Sunday special -- turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, & gravy. Took the 1/2 size meal at half the price ($7.95). The plate could have been bigger to hold all that food. We had to ask for another plate to hold the dinner rolls, otherwise they might fall on to the table -- no room for them. The... More
