Valentine's day with the wife.

Food was great. Desert the cheese cake not so great. Little spendy but the 20oz ribeye was worth every bite. Yummy.

Too high priced for the quality. The quality is just not there. Many foods taste like they are prepared ahead of time and have come from the freezer.

Love the 502 Restaurant. The food and staff are alway excellent. My favourite dish are the Walleye Cakes. I usually have them a few times during our week visits.

The food was very good, the selection and the prices were quite reasonable. The view was incredible. They've done an excellent job with keeping the old look and feel of the hotel alive. The rich wooodwork and details take you back to a much simpler, rustic time. This was the grandest place in the area and you realize why once... More

I loved the Crab Stuffed Shrimp and the Tomato Wild Rice Gorgonzola soup. The atmosphere is authentic arts and crafts. It was very peaceful, warm and inviting.

I ate here with my husband on a night out without our children. We were pleasantly surprised with the casual, but refined ambiance of the 502. The food was good and the service was excellent. We'll come back again.

Around 7:30, the hostess told us that we should come back in 1/2 hour and there might be tables open. When we came back she gave us a lighted thing that would blink when a table opened up and we still had to wait another 1/2 hour. Not a smile out of anyone working in the restaurant until the waiter.... More
